It seems we had the big guy pegged wrong. Despite rumors which pointed to the Hulk actually being the villain in the upcoming film 'The Avengers,' a statement by Marvel Studios makes it clear that Hulk will actually appear in the film AS an Avenger himself. This contradicts not only most Internet rumors, but even statements made by the director of the recently released "Hulk" film, Luis Leterrier. According to the statement:
THE AVENGERS will bring together the super hero team of Marvel Comics characters for the first time ever, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk and more, as they are forced to band together to battle the biggest foe they’ve ever faced.
It just gets juicier and juicier.
