Ed Norton Talks About Not Playing the Hulk Again

Ed Norton was on NPR promoting his new movie Birdman when he made the following comment about the role of Bruce Banner and the Hulk:

“My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that.

“There were just a lot of things—I wanted more diversity. I sort of chose to continue on my path of having a diversity of experiences. Maybe on some unconscious level, I didn’t want to have an association with one thing in any way degrade my effectiveness as an actor, in characters. I think you can sort of do anything once, but if you do it too many times, it can become a suit that’s hard to take off, in other peoples’ eyes.

“And if I had continued on with it, I wouldn’t have made ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ or ‘Grand Budapest,’ or ‘Birdman,’ because those all overlapped with ['The Avengers']. And those were more the priority for me, but I continue to be a fan and I’m really, really happy I got to do it once.”

Planet Hulk Coming Back in 2015???

In the last week, Marvel has been releasing teaser images for what is coming up in 2015. They had already announced another Secret Wars at NYCC followed by images which seemed to be re-visiting past popular storylines. Today, Marvel released a Planet Hulk teaser image although it seems to have nothing to do with the previous Planet Hulk storyline. It has a bunch of Hulk incarnations along with a Red Hulk and She Hulk along with Devil Dinosaur and Captain America holding his shield and a large battle axe. I guess we will have to wait and see if this is real or just Marvel having fun with us.

Guardians of the Galaxy to Star in Upcoming Hulk and Agents of S.M.A.S.H Episode

Marvel’s Animation panel at NYCC revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy (who will be getting their own animated show in the near future) will be guest staring in an episode of The Incredible Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. See the description from Jeph Loeb below:

The episode begins with Hulk’s team lost in space, though Red Hulk points out that “Thanks to the Leader, everyone on Earth thinks we’re criminals — they don’t want us to come home.” They’re soon invited to meet the Avengers on a strange planet, but are promptly placed under arrest by Cap’s crew. A battle ensues. Just as things are calming down, the Guardians arrive.

Scrap Metal Incredible Hulk Figure: AWESOME

The website Kotaku had an article on a guy in Thailand who makes statues out of automobile scrap metal and he has made an awesome Incredible Hulk figure. He actually made one previously but the latest one is simply amazing. I would love to have this piece standing in my yard.
