While it appears that Ed Norton doesn't have a clue whether or of he will return for a Hulk sequel, producer Gale Anne Hurd has a better idea about the prospects for a Norton two-peat. "It's all going to depend on the screenplay and where his character goes in any sequel, because he does have a multiple-picture deal," the veteran film producer told MTV. "[Norton's situation] is the same with every franchise like this, when you have one of the top actors of his generation."
She also has a firm idea for which Hulk baddie would square off with Mr. Greenjeans for round two. "When I think of all the many, many, many villains in the Hulk universe, we've now done the Abomination, so wouldn't it be great to tackle the Leader? It's a completely different type of cerebral villain, which would give the movie a terrific new take on the character." Hurd also foresees Tim Blake Nelson returning to play the mutated Samuel Sterns. "It would be a blast [to put the Leader in the sequel], and Tim Blake Nelson is tremendous and a very talented filmmaker in his own right."- MTV. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Three months after the release of The Incredible Hulk, MTV's Splash Page asked Edward Norton if he had heard any news about making a sequel or even if he would be asked to reprise the Hulk's alter-ego, Bruce Banner, in the Avengers movie pencilled in for 2011. "The minds of Marvel are sometimes opaque," Norton told the site. "I won’t say [they're] obtuse, but I don’t have any idea what they want to do."
He was even non-committal on the prospect of appearing in The Avengers movie, stating that while he had heard about the project he couldn't know for certain whether he -- or the Hulk character -- would be a part of the picture's ingredients. "They’ve got this notion of collecting the Marvel characters," the actor remarked. "Who knows where they’ll go?"- MTV. Comment on this Scoop (0)
