I think this took a lot of people by surprise. Ed Norton has been signed to star as Bruce Banner in Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk movie scheduled to hit theatre’s on June 13, 2008.
“Edward Norton is a rare talent and one of the most versatile actors in the business. His ability to transform into a particular role makes him the ideal choice to take on the character of Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Edward is perfectly suited to bring one of the most popular and important Marvel icons to the big screen in a new and exciting way,” said Kevin Feige, President of Production, Marvel Studios.
Under the visionary direction of Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2, Unleashed), The Incredible Hulk will return to the roots of the long-running comic series and television show.
The movie is scheduled to begin this summer in Toronto.
