Edward Norton Fired From 'Incredible Hulk' Sequel

Edward Norton Fired From 'Incredible Hulk' Sequel
JUL 12, 2010 AT 12:14 PM
Something REALLY bad must've been going on behind the scenes for this to happen. Edward Norton, who starred in the film version of 'The Hulk' in 2008, has been fired from the sequel. And the studio isn't even attempting to be diplomatic about it with a rationale of "scheduling conflicts" or anything. Here's their statement:
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers," Marvel said in a statement. Norton, 40, played The Hulk in the 2008 remake.
"Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H., Chris E., Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."
Ouch.
Here's a statement from Edward's rep:
"This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light... This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings."
What in the world could've been going on for this to happen? Goodness.
Were you a fan of Edward in 'The Hulk'? Would you be willing to go see the sequel with someone else in the lead role?
