The majority of the general public has seen the first Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and are familiar with the upcoming Avengers collaboration that Marvel is planning. When both films were released in the summer of 2008, Robert Downey, Jr.’s Tony Stark popped up in the last act of the Hulk. It looked as if he was recruiting Bruce Banner to join the Avengers, and now rumors have been suggesting that Edward Norton will make an appearance in Iron Man 2 and return the favor.
Over at MTV, they were able to ask Norton whether or not we can expect the Hulk to make a cameo appearance in next year’s Iron Man 2.
“I heard that. I don’t know where that’s coming from,” he said. “I am not in Iron Man 2 to my knowledge.”
That sounds like a clear cut no, but he hasn’t denied that he will pop up in the Avengers movie. He has remained very tight lipped about his involvement, so there’s still hope. Just because he doesn’t show up in Iron Man doesn’t mean he’s out completely. Tony Stark does have his own stuff going on, and the last time we checked Banner was somewhere in the mountains meditating and doing yoga.
Do you still think Norton will pop up in Iron Man 2? Do you think Norton will be in the Avengers?
