Rumors have been running rampant about who would fill in the big green shoes of the Hulk. An 'insider' now claims the role has been offered to another and that a final decision should be announced at Comic-Con
I wouldn't be too sure he's a good fit but I would not have thought Edward Norton would have done as good as he did either. It's a shame Norton won't be back.
Joaquin could pull of the craziness. I am intrigued by the idea.
I liked Norton because he was funny, and he's not what you would expect for the Hulk. The basis of that character is being more than what he seems, and since Norton is a skinny, awkward little guy, he fit perfectly (that and he's a great actor).
Phoenix might be a little too crazy for the role. Either way the flow Marvel was going for is now thrown off.
I think any Hulk casting is going to be problematic because they have yet to capture the ACTOR's performance as the CGI Hulk very well. I'm up for Phoenix as long as the CGI improves.
I guess his rapping career didn't take off the way he thought it would. Back to acting as a fallback.
I like Norton better as the Hulk, but this has peaked my curiousity.. Phoenix might could handle it. Of course it would be a different Hulk, somewhat..since he isn't the skinny, funny guy.
I would prefer Edward N., I don't know about Joaquin P. doing the role. To me he just don't fit the part, voice wise, and looks. I would recomend Christian Bale to play Bruce Banner, I know he does the Dark Knight from DC Comics, but I could see him doing the Hulk from Marvel too.
I thought in his recent drunken stupor he proclaimed he was done with Hollywood to pursue his Grunge Rapper career?!? And secondly if he does Become the new Bruce Banner (which Gawd I hope not) will the Hulk have a hair lip too? Sorry that was mean but I couldn't resist...LOL
