I have started a petition to bring back @edwardnortonofficial
as the Hulk for the MCU.
It's really a shame that his role as Banner has quickly been forgotten, because I find the 2008 Incredible Hulk film severly underrated and while I like @markruffalo
as the Hulk, he just went downhill for me in Infinity War and made me miss Norton.
So, last week, Ruffalo was present at the @fallontonight
show when spoiled the title of Avengers 4. As a response, @therussobrothers
posted on Twitter that he was "fired". Ruffalo reponded to the Russos about "firing" him and tried to talk to them, but they claimed that he was still "fired". Yes, I know both Ruffalo and @tomholland2013
are notorious for revealing spoilers for the MCU and I'm not sure if they meant it or they were joking, because if they meant it, then I have no choice ro say goodbye to him.
I just hope Ruffalo being fired isn't true, but I'm afraid it might be. That's part of the reason why I started this petiton to bring back Norton as Bruce Banner/Hulk for Avengers 4. To this day, I am saddened that he didn't return and I based most of my work of Hulk on Norton.
Back in 2010, Marvel Studios fired Norton as the Hulk in The Avengers for not "being collaborative" (damn, no wonder he roasted them). Fans were outraged about this and even Norton expressed his sadness about not returning as the Hulk. Norton was a fan of the Hulk comics and to see that his portrayal and the 2008 Hulk get forgotten over time just really depresses me.
So, if Norton is to return, this would have brought his story in the MCU full circle and make Avengers 4 THE first MCU movie have a true connection to The Incredible Hulk. So, Mark, I love you, man, but if Norton would return, then I'm sorry, you gotta go.
If you're a fan of Norton as the Hulk, sign this petition and express your appreciation for Edward Norton as the Hulk.
