It's been a wild few days ever since it was announced that Edward Norton would not be reprising his role as Bruce Banner/Hulk in The Avengers. Surprisingly – and despite the fact that The Incredible Hulk was only a moderate hit – fans were pretty outraged about the whole thing and bashed Marvel for not going after Norton harder. Almost immediately we heard that Joaquin Phoenix was up for the role, and now Deadline reports that Mark Ruffalo is in advance talks to take on the part vacated by Norton.

did you read it Nancy? otherwise you would have at least spelled the name right.
don't worry about my spelling.....this is not about me, it's about the article itself. I'm not here to disrepect anyone, but i can agree or disagree with what is said. I have the right to my own opinion. Why don't you try having something important to reply to.......... this is so high school......
It is good move but the series need a constinece in the series
Meh, I like norton and I'm stubborn like that.
I have to agree, Norton did an incredible job and the Hulk was even modeled after him! I don't know anything about this guy, can he really play the depressed but courageous character that Norton set up? Personally, even if Banner isn't a very imposing guy, I think that Norton's less impressive physique made the Hulk all the more...well, incredible!
I agree with you :-)
Yeah, 100% the vibe got as well, he seemed more like the comic book character underdog/normal person doing something extraordinary.
I agree. Norton was great. If he's going to be replaced I would rather see someone unknown and talented (fresh meat). Ruffalo has been around but I just don't see him in this role.
I must agree. While I didn't really like either Hulk movie, Norton was PERFECT for the role. Replacing him feels almost as stupid as it would be to replace Downey Jr in Iron Man!
This is a good choice because the character of Bruce Banner is mild mannered and introspective. Good choice.
Great choice, really good actor. I too hope this gives him the big break in to the "big times" he deserves.
