Here’s why Marvel fired Edward Norton as the Hulk, replaced him with Mark Ruffalo

Earlier than Mark Ruffalo donned the position of Bruce Banner or the Hulk within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Edward Norton had performed the position within the solo film on the superhero. Nonetheless, Norton was faraway from the MCU and Ruffalo has performed the character since 2012’s The Avengers.

Earlier than the filming of Joss Whedon’s teamup film might start, in 201, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige launched an announcement that stated that they had parted methods with Norton and the “determination is unquestionably not one based mostly on financial components, however as a substitute rooted within the want for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our different proficient solid members.”

He added, “The Avengers calls for gamers who thrive working as a part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our proficient casts. We want to announce a reputation actor who fulfils these necessities, and is passionate in regards to the iconic position within the coming weeks.”

The response from Norton got here very quickly. His agent Brian Swardstrom claimed that what Feige stated was “offensive, purposefully deceptive, inappropriate try to color our consumer in a destructive mild”.

“Counter to what Kevin implies right here, Edward was wanting ahead to the chance to work with Joss and the opposite actors within the Avengers solid, a lot of whom are private mates of his. Feige’s assertion is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory. Mr Norton’s expertise, tireless work ethic {and professional} integrity deserve extra respect, and so do Marvel’s followers,” the assertion continued.

That is terribly just like what occurred with Terrence Howard, the actor who had essayed the position of Rhodey within the first Iron Man film. However his position was taken over by Don Cheadle, who has performed it in Iron Man 2 onwards.

It’s anyone’s guess whether or not Norton’s Hulk would have been higher than Ruffalo’s. However the latter actor’s imprint on the character is so deep now that it’s exhausting to think about anyone else within the position.

Regardless of the setbacks of shedding two notable actors early on, MCU went on to turn into the largest movie franchise the world has ever seen.
