Actor Edward Norton will not be reprising his role as the Hulk in the sequel to the film The Incredible Hulk.
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers," nydailynews.com quoted a spokesperson of Marvel Studios as saying.
"Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members."
"The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H., Chris E., Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented cast. We are looking to announce a name who fulfils these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks," the spokesperson added.
