Ed Norton as The Hulk

This is what Empire Magazine just sent to my inbox. I think that's the first picture I've seen of him actually...Hulkifying. The only other still I've seen is that old one with a pensive Norton gazing into a glass vial. The email included a quote from The Hulk's director, Louis Letterier; "We didn't want to make a cerebral movie...Admittedly, I'm not the most adult director, but just because we're making a superhero movie, it doesn't just have to appeal to 13-year-old boys. Ed and I both see superheroes as the new Greek gods, so there's a classical undercurrent to Bruce's psycho-drama. It's Prometheus, Pandora's Box, Hercules...but with explosions!". A film starring and written by Edward Norton can't help but be cerebral, I think - but this sounds like a good sign that they're not taking this too seriously. If The Incredible Hulk turns out to be something akin to Spiderman or X-Men II, consider me intruiged. The supporting cast seem interesting as well; Robert Downey Jr, Tim Blake Nelson, William Hurt, Tim Roth and...Liv Tyler? I had completely forgottten she was an actual actress and not an elf.

Hola Catherine .. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for stopping by to share your three favorite films ... I think I'm one of the very few people in the entire world who liked Ang Lee's take on the Hulk, and I think this new one will be even better and will be one of the surprise hits of this coming summer

I just picked up Empire today. I haven't seen the Ang Lee version so I don't have anything to compare it to but that cast seems great and I largely trust Marvel to look after their franchise (even though X-men 3 was just far too wrong)
