Variety reports today that Edward Norton has been signed by Marvel Studios to play Bruce Banner in the 2008 sequel “The Incredible Hulk” by Director Louis Leterrier. “The Incredible Hulk” follows Bruce Banner on the run, trying to keep from being captured long enough to cure his condition that turns him into The Hulk.
Marvel Studios production president Kevin Feige feels that Edward Norton is a versatile actor. “His ability to transform into a particular role makes him the ideal choice to take on the character of Bruce Banner and the Hulk. Edward is perfectly suited to bring one of the most popular and important Marvel icons to the bigscreen in a new and exciting way,” says Kevin.
“The Incredible Hulk” was written by Zak Penn (X-men, Fantastic Four, Elektra)
