Edward Norton is still whining

April 19, 2011 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

To recap: Hulk, starring Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, was generally considered to have failed at the box office, so Marvel pretended like it never happened and made an all new Hulk movie starring Edward Norton. That didn’t help, and it only made 5 million more than the first one (worldwide gross – budget = 114 vs 109).

Now Marvel is making a movie based on the Avengers, this time with Mark Ruffalo playing Bruce Banner, and Norton, who was more than happy to replace Bana under identical circumstances, is still whining about it

“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 flat out a business decision.”
“I would say that blew back on them much worse than it blew back on me … Marvel’s going to have to deal with their own karma. They’ve got bigger problems than me.”

What Norton calls a “cheap and unnecessary representation” is that the Marvel CEO said they wanted to replace him with an actor who, “embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members”. In other words Norton is an annoying pain in the ass, one who takes credit for things he didn’t do, so fuck him. If he’d rather the CEO have said that I’m sure he can be reached for a comment.
