All may not be well in Hulk-land….
Actor Edward Norton, who plays Hulky Bruce Banner in the upcoming film The Incredible Hulk , is refusing to do press and interviews for the film
Generally that means the film sucks and the lead is embarrassed.
Turns out the star of the $150 million adaptation of the Marvel comic-book series (and followup to Ang Lee’s flop) has indeed declined interview requests following a disagreement he had with his producers over the final cut of the flick. According to EW.com, “in recent months, Norton and the film's director, Louis Leterrier (The Transporter), campaigned for a longer, more detailed film. Marvel Studios wanted a faster, leaner one. Marvel won.”
The Incredible Hulk’s plot finds Banner hiding out in Brazil trying to find a cure for the gamma-ray exposure that turns him into a monster. But he is discovered by Gen. Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt) and chased by the government. As he flees and tries to cure himself, Banner must also dodge bad guy Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), a soldier who turns into the creature known as Abomination.
(…and by the way, there isn’t really a Hulk-land…I made that up…)
