Norton won’t return as The Hulk?

According to Hitflix Marvel will not bring back Edward Norton to play the Hulk in the upcoming superhero-movie ‘The Avengers’
In this huge assembling of superheroes all the other major roles has been officially casted. Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth will play Donald Blake/Thor, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson as Natalia Romanova/The Black Widow. ┬áTherefore, it has also been assumed that they will bring back Edward Norton, who starred in the 2008 movie ‘The Incredible Hulk’, as Bruce Banner/The Hulk.

However
, it seems like Marvel has turned on their decision. It now seems like Marvel has officially stated that Edward Norton will not return to the part as the Hulk, and that they will cast an unknown actor for the part. According to Hitflix’ article, Norton and Marvel came together for a meeting about the part, and that both parts went out of the meeting with enthusiasm for the project. Although, it now seems like Marvel have simply just changed their mind – even though Norton obviously wanted it.

Insted of going with the safe choice, Marvel will now cast the third Hulk in three movies about the green superhero. This will certainly be a huge blow both to the film and it fans, and I for myself is unsure if this will work. Edward Norton worked in the role, but Eric Bana didn’t. With this in mind, the statistics say that it’s a 50% chance of finding an actor that will work as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Let’s just hope that it’s 50% working on our side in this case, and that Marvel actually will find an actor who will work.

I’ve created a top 10 for myself, of actor I think will work (in no specific order):
– Alexis Denisof
– James Franco
– Zachary Quinto
– Emile Hirsch
– Jamie Bell
– Daniel Bruhl
– Ryan Phillippe
– Ben Foster
– Nathan Fillion
– Joseph Gordon-Levitt
