Avengers Movie-I can't believe they dissed Ed Norton!
Can you believe this garbage?
After starring in the last Hulk movie, the directors of the Avengers decided that Ed Norton was not a good fit for the new movie.
The choice was "not one based on monetary factors, but [...] the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members.."
This quote is from a Yahoo UK article from July 2011 that conveniently doesn't exist anymore.
Edward Norton is an excellent actor. He has several Academy Award nominations under his belt. And one of his films, Fight Club, is iconic and a pop culture symbol. Yet these people have the nerve to imply that he is a diva and not a team player? They have the audacity to give the impression that he is not creative enough to work with hack jobs and pretty boys (don't get me wrong, Downey is a good actor)? Are they for real? They act like they are sitting on the next Godfather!!!!!!! It's the darn Avengers movies!!!! Popcorn and flashing lights....and they really think they can diss someone with actual acting chops? Sorry Ed Norton, you haven't done enough coke or have big enough boobs for this movie. Better luck next time!
