    Edward Norton to be the new Hulk

    Two-time Academy Award nominee Edward Norton will play scientist-turned-superhero Bruce Banner in a new movie version of The Incredible Hulk, Marvel Entertainment said on Monday.

    The new movie is based on the comic book series telling of the exploits of Banner, a scientist who transforms into a giant green brute, and it follows a 2003 big-budget film called Hulk that failed to catch fire with audiences or critics.

    Norton, 37, is among Hollywood's most versatile actors, having appeared in more than 20 films including American History X and Primal Fear, both of which earned him Oscar nominations for acting. For the most part, his roles have been in dramas such as 2006's The Illusionist, making his choice to portray a comic book hero a novel idea.

    "His ability to transform into a particular role makes him the ideal choice to take on the character of Bruce Banner/The Hulk," said Kevin Feige, president of production at Marvel Studios.

    The Incredible Hulk will be directed by Louis Leterrier, a Frenchman whose previous films include the action adventure The Transporter. The new movie is expected to be in theatres by June 2008, and will be distributed by Universal Pictures.

    Universal, owned by General Electric, and Marvel teamed up in 2003 to produce and distribute Hulk, which was directed by Ang Lee, who later won a best director's Oscar for Brokeback Mountain.

    His version of Hulk raked in $245 million at global box offices, but the amount was deemed to be a modest sum given its high expectations and budget of nearly $140 million. Hulk also earned generally poor reviews.
    Seems a strange choice, but Norton is a quality actor, so may do a good job.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yea, read about this a couple days ago. Was truly shocked. Hopefully he does a better job than he did in The Illusionist.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It was very disappointing, for mine. And largely because Edward Norton's performance didn't meet my expectations.

    Given it was no Primal Fear, but fair enough.

    Norton is one of my favourite actors, and the Hulk is one of my favourite characters, so tbh, I'm quite excited about this. I thought Bana was one of the few shining lights in the otherwise crappy "Hulk" of a few years back, and I wouldn't mind him getting another go with a better script and more accessible direction, but am very happy to see Norton getting a go.

    And Andy - Bannor is meant to be weedy - that's why he has to Hulk out.

    From the director of the The Transporter, Iím ****ing there!

    Tis a shame about Norton, was looking forward to the direct to TV Hulk films not another cinematic outing for the green machine

    Although, I must say I thought Ang Leeís Hulk was mildly interesting in its exploration of comic book design and human pathos. Well it was leaps and bounds the best Marvel comic book movie since Dolph Lundgrenís The Punisher, if anything.

    I'm sure it'll be a marvellous production.
