Edward Norton has slated Marvel for dropping him from future Hulk film projects. Norton played Bruce Banner in 2008’s ‘The Incredible Hulk, but has not been included in the forthcoming ‘Avengers’ project, which unites Hulk with Iron Man, Captain America and Thor. Instead the part will be played by Mark Ruffalo, who has less of a pedigree as a leading man than Norton.
 
Norton has hit out at the studio calling it “low and dishonest”.

He told The Independent: “I found it a cheap and unnecessary representation that it was about things other than money. They came to me avidly to talk about it and then, at the end of the day, it was just a flat-out business decision.”

He went on to predict that Marvel is “going to have to deal with their own karma.”

Lets hope he doesn’t turn green and (Hulk) smash the studio to pieces before this Summer’s big outings from ‘Captain America’ and ‘Thor’. Both of which have both been given the green light for sequels even before they have been released, or had their cameos in the forthcoming ‘Avengers’ movie, planned for release in 2012.
