Reportedly, Edward Norton, the star of the new version of 'Hulk', revealed that there will be sequel to the Universal Pictures' latest project.
"The Incredible Hulk" allegedly will be the first of 'Hulk' film series. In an interview with Total Film magazine, the star of the action fantasy film Edward Norton revealed that the movie is just the beginning saying, "To me the whole thing was to envision it in multiple parts. We left a lot out on purpose. It's definitely intended as chapter one."
On the occasion, the "Red Dragon" actor also confirmed the fact that his version of 'Hulk' is not the sequel or prequel of the Ang Lee's 2003 version "Hulk". He said, "First off it's utterly unrelated to that film," he said. "This is in no way a response to it or picking up from it." Further, he continued explaining, "I think like Chris Nolan and those guys did with Batman, we just said: 'We're going to start completely with our own version of this myth or saga.'"
Additionally, the two-time Oscar-nominated actor confessed that initially he turned down the offer to play Bruce Banner. However, after knowing that he has the chance to write the script himself, he then accepted the role. Norton will play alongside Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt and Tim Blake Nelson in the film distributed by Universal Pictures on June 13.
