Edward Norton hits out at Marvel over ‘Hulk’

'Fight Club' star will not be included in forthcoming 'Avengers' movie

Edward Norton has hit out at Marvel for freezing him out of future Hulk film projects.

The Fight Club star played Bruce Banner in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, but has not been included in the forthcoming Avengers project, which unites Hulk with Iron Man, Captain America and Thor. He will instead be played by Mark Ruffalo.

But Norton has now hit out at the studio calling it “low and dishonest”.

He told The Independent: “I found it a cheap and unnecessary representation that it was about things other than money. They came to me avidly to talk about it and then, at the end of the day, it was just a flat out business decision.”

He went on to predict that Marvel is “going to have to deal with their own karma.”
