Edward Norton has shared his insight on flying rumors that Hulk could be making a cameo in "Iron Man 2". When MTV News caught up with him at the Toronto International Film Festival, the depicter of the green raging superhero in 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" put the brake on the speculation.

"I heard that. I don't know where that's coming from," the two-time Academy Award-nominee responded when presented with the cameo rumor. Addressing the truth of the circulating story, the actor who is in town to promote his new movie "Leaves of Grass" said simply, "I am not in 'Iron Man 2' to my knowledge."

Hulk's cameo aside, this sequel of blockbuster "Iron Man" was previously hit with a 3-D rumor. In early September, Ain't It Cool News reported that a minute of the superhero sequel is being converted to 3-D as a demo. "Right now, there is a 1 minute demo of IRON MAN 2 converted to high quality digital 3D. I'm told this one minute is totally like Kim Basinger & Mickey Rourke in 9 1/2 WEEKS," so Harry of AICN claimed at the time.

"Iron Man 2" teams up once again director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr.. They will be supported by a number of A-list actors, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, in the star-studded cast ensemble.

The script is provided by "Tropic Thunder" co-scribbler Justin Theroux. So far, the plot of this sequel is yet to be disclosed, though rumor has it, Stark will be dealing with his alcohol problem. Paramount Pictures eyes to distribute this actioner in theaters across the U.S. on May 7, 2010.
