Edward Norton Talks Marvel, Money, Hulk And Avengers!

U.K’s Independent, did a recent interview with the actor Edward Norton. Norton was set to reprise his Incredible Hulk role in The Avengers, but Marvel and him clashed heavily and to this day the story has been told in dozens of different ways! This time, he shares thoughts and feelings on the studios’ decision in replacing him.

Talking about the studios’ statement, and the accusations of  “someone who does not embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members” Norton said:

“I found it a cheap and unnecessary representation that it was about things other than money,”

sighs Norton.

“They came to me avidly to talk about it and then at the end of the day it was just flat out a business decision.”

After calling “Marvel’s way” “low, unprofessional and very dishonest” he added:

“I would say that blew back on them much worse than it blew back on me,”

he continues the rant:

“I couldn’t have been happier with the experience that I had making the film, but nor do I feel any kind of intensity about doing it again. A really good friend of mine’s going to do it now [Mark Ruffalo] and he’s awesome! Marvel’s going to have to deal with their own karma – they’ve got bigger problems than me.”
“And how could I get anxious over something like that?”

“I couldn’t ask for a more blessed position. The way that the work I’ve done has found its way into people’s lives, it’s everything that I got into the business to achieve so I just don’t feel this relentless intensity about climbing higher anymore. I’ve got plenty of other things in my life to be getting on with.”
