Even though Norton said he knows nothing about an appearance in Iron Man 2, I still hold a glimmer of hope that it could happen. That would sure bring a big pile of love for Norton and Marvel Studios from the fans. Like I said before, it’s only fair considering RDJ appeared in film.
As for Hulk-centric stuff in the upcoming Marvel flicks, I think it’s almost a certainty The Hulk will appear in some fashion in The Avengers. The only question is what role he’ll have and whether or not we get to see Ed Norton as Banner as well.
There’s also the interesting fact that Tim Roth has a three-picture deal with Marvel, meaning there was some talk or a plan of him partaking in two more films – one of them possibly being The Avengers.
It’s reasonable to assume The Avengers won’t be about just one bad guy – It could involve villains from all of the hero solo films before it, so I could see The Abomination as one grunt of the battle with a Mandarin/Loki-esque superior calling the shots behind the scenes.
Tim Roth played coy in his responses on that, much like Norton and Marvel President of Production, Kevin Feige, usually do on the subject. It’ll be refreshing to get some confirmations and see what they’re planning, but at the same time it’s exciting to think of the possibilities.

As soon as we hear more on Hulk’s future, we’ll let you know, because we’re dying to know too.
The Avengers are scheduled to save the day May 4, 2012.
