(fanmade) The Incredible Hulk
Thank the lord! With news as slow as it is, consider us relieved to hear anything new on just about any upcoming tentpole. The film to follow under our crosshairs (at the moment) is The Incredible Hulk, with Edward Norton quickly surfacing to remind people that this film is its own beast and will have no relation to the first film starring Eric Bana.
The New Start to a Franchise: The Incredible Hulk
TheSun posted an interview between Edward Norton and Total Film where he reminds moviegoers that The Incredible Hulk has absolutely no, none, zilch in common with the first film from Ang Lee.
“First off it’s utterly unrelated to that film,” he said, in this month’s Total Film magazine.
“This is in no way a response to it or picking up from it. I think like Chris Nolan and those guys did with Batman, we just said: 'We’re going to start completely with our own version of this myth or saga.'”
Norton goes on to mention how he originally refused the role, but jumped aboard after working on the script. Any chance for a sequel? Hell yes!
“To me the whole thing was to envision it in multiple parts,” he said.
“We left a lot out on purpose. It’s definitely intended as chapter one.”
The Incredible Hulk opens to theaters on June 13th, 2008.
