"The Incredible Hulk," a reboot of Ang Lee's 2003 take on "The Hulk," isn't upsetting the actors from the last go-round, at least not enough to cause any real tears. "Boo hoo," said Sam Elliott, pretending to cry over being replaced by William Hurt as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. "That's a little weird [to see someone take your part]. But I happen to be a huge Edward Norton fan, and I think he's a great choice for the Hulk. I'm sure he'll be incredible."
Ditto for Jennifer Connelly, who played his daughter. "I love Liv [Tyler]," Connelly said of the next Betty Ross. "She's a friend of mine and I'm so excited that she's doing it and I can't wait to see it. I love Ed [Norton] as well, and I can't wait to see what Ed does with it."
Still, Elliott wishes they'd have considered using some of the 2003 cast, "because I'd love to have done another one. But I'll be looking forward to seeing this one."
Meanwhile, fans of the original comic are looking forward to the debut of the Red Hulk, coming in January courtesy of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness at Marvel. But who is the Red Hulk? "I can't tell you who the Red Hulk is," Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada told us, "but I can tell you the Red Hulk is coming." Come on, just a hint? After all, there's a murder involved. "I can't," Quesada laughed. "I need your money."
