It isn’t very often one hears about the “not so great” Marvel movies (let’s be real, there have been a few), but the character who seemed to struggle getting off the cinematic ground was our friend The Hulk.
2003 brought us the Eric Bana Hulk, which was followed by Edward Norton in The Incredible Hulk in 2008. Honestly, I didn’t mind the films. Were the good compared to Marvel standards? No. Could they have been better? Absolutely, but there have been worse movies.
We eventually got the wonderful Mark Ruffalo to bring some stability to the role, but if anyone was curious as to how Norton felt about his part in the film, we now know. Twitter user Ryan Parker tweeted Norton’s comments last night during the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis, which can be seen below:

Well, I doubt Marvel would ever ask Norton to play anymore roles, but maybe his want for a better script lead Marvel to do just that…create better scripts. We did get Iron Man a month or so earlier in 2008. Maybe they decided to follow what worked, script-wise, in Iron Man, and the rest is history!
What do you think of Norton’s comments? Is he justified, or being an a-hole? Do you think his actions in 2008 played a role in how Marvel viewed their scripts moving forward? Leave your thoughts in the usual place, and thanks for reading!
