Well for those who thought that Michael Keton was an odd choice for Batman, here’s an even weirder choice for a role, Edward Norton is the Hulk!  In a follow up to Ang Lee’s interpretation (which personally I loved unlike a lot of people), we have a new reimaging of the the green giant. As it has been repeatedly told, this new film is not a sequel but a whole new version, due for release next Summer it is directed by Louis Letterier whose previous work was the silly but fun ‘The Transporter. The Incredible Hulk as it will be called is the second film to come from the Marvel’s production company with the first film scheduled for release being Jon Faverau’s ‘Iron Man’.

  So Ed Norton as the Hulk, well as Marvel’s Studio President has said “Edward Norton is a rare talent, his ability to transform into a particular role makes him the ideal choice to take on the character of Bruce Banner and the Hulk. Edward is perfectly suited to bring one of the most popular and important Marvel icons to the bigscreen in a new and exciting way”.  Personally I think he is an odd choice but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad Ed Norton performance, from American History X, to Fight Club, so if anyone can pull of the role it’s him.
