There’s still that rumor going around that Norton could appear in Iron Man 2 – I can’t even describe how awesome that would be, and how happy that would make me as a fan who’s hopeful of Marvel’s plan leading up to The Avengers.
On that note, director Louis Leterrier is contracted for one more film with the studio and with Disney purchasing Marvel (and hence, Marvel Studios) this means more financing for films – and therefore, an immediate increase in production capacity for the studio. This was something that was mentioned by Marvel President of Production, Kevin Feige, in hopes that it could happen five or so years down the road.
Does this mean we’ll get an early greenlight on a sequel to The Incredible Hulk? There’s been plenty of talk about a sequel but with it, clarification that it wouldn’t occur until after The Avengers. Perhaps now with Disney’s support, they can move some of those in-development films up.
In addition to Leterrier’s two-picture contract with Marvel Studios, the talented actor behind Hulk’s latest villain, Tim Roth, is also contracted with a multi-picture deal – specifically, three films. A few weeks back, Roth hinted at being contacted about participating in something again but was very tight-lipped about it.
At the time, many thought he could simply be one of the few/many villains of The Avengers or perhaps that he’d have a small role as a cameo villain in another Marvel solo flick coming up. Could it be that it’s now more likely he’ll be back in a Hulk sequel along with The Leader whom they introduced at the end of the last film.
Would you like to see The Incredible Hulk 2, Ed Norton back as Bruce Banner, and Leterrier in the director’s chair again?
