Being true to the threats he made while filming, Edward Norton is being a whiny little bitch and is refusing to participate in promoting The Incredible Hulk. Now without any other recourse, Marvel Studios is putting secret plot details and cameos in the trailers to get audiences to see the film. FOX News reports:
…Norton fell out with Marvel and Universal and declined to do much publicity. This left the bulk of it to co-star Liv Tyler. Interestingly, Norton is not signed to do the typical two sequels to this “Hulk,” although Tyler is and so, I’m told, is director Louis Leterrier. The reason for Norton holding out is likely a money issue….Universal is using Robert Downey Jr.’s surprise appearance in “Hulk” as Tony Stark aka Iron Man in their TV commercials. Downey’s presence was supposed to be a big twist at the end…But I guess that Marvel and Universal want to capitalize on “Iron Man”‘s huge box office.”
Not to get lost in all this is the fact that this is a movie about a man who turns into a ferocious green giant when he gets angry. Much unlike Edward Norton, who apparently turns into a three year old who dropped his ice cream cone.
