If the Hulk is going to be in the Avengers and they can't nail down Ed Norton I'd say get somebody else for Banner.

Save the Hulk for a Defenders movie, have Dr. Strange be the one to reign in the beast, like he did in the orginal series.

"6 reasons we need a Marvel Defenders Movie".

1. Infuse "magic" and the cosmic Marvel universe into the now established "Ironman" Marvel Cinematic Universe

2. Set a different tone for next wave of Marvel movies, from blockbuster (Avengers) action movies, to paranomal creepy thriller Lovecraftian (X-files) type movies.

3. Nerdy outsider brainy scientist types are cool in pop culture (Fringe, Big Bang, CSI)

4. Revolving membership. The orignal group was Doctor Strange,Silver Surfer, Sub-Mariner, and the Hulk, but movie rights (Fox still has Silver surfer rights?) you can alternate differnt (3rd tier) charcters as the Defenders comicbook constantly changed/ introduced new heroes.

5. Way for Marvel to capitalize on the success of Dan Brown DiVinci Code themes and Marvels own new S.H.I.E.L.D. series.

6. Way for Marvel to bring back the Hulk (Bruce Banner)

"The Defenders using "magic", science, brains, and brawn defeat a multidimensional/cosmic threat and save the day the way that Avengers can not."

The team that Shield assembles to defend earth will be an eccentric group of of scientist/ academia types culled together to form the "Defenders". Project "Defenders" consist of Doctor Strange leading the team, Namor, and the Hulk (Bruce Banner), and Henry Pym (Ant-Man) and Wasp. The story incorporates things from the bestselling magical/occult/secret society/new age stuff ala'l DiVinci Code and latest Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver's S.H.I.E.L.D. comics series. Use Dr. Strange to merge the magical other-dimensions like the Asgard Thor universe into the "realistic" IronMan universe to create an ongoing one-shots and upcoming Avengers/Defenders/Shield movies.

Timothy Olyphant for "the purple headed master of the shaft!" lol

I don't think a Defenders movie is ever going to see the light of day; it will get made about the same time as a New Mutants movie (read=not going to happen).

I agree that Timothy Oliphant would make a cool Hawkeye.  I really hope they include at least a couple of 'lesser' Avengers (Hawkeye, Wonderman, Wasp, Yellowjacket, Vision) in addition to the main guys that get their own solo movies.

Personally, I'm hoping they go with Ultron as the baddie; he has the potential to take on the whole team, as he's got brains and brawn.

Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, has already stated flat out that The Hulk will most definitely be in The Avengers.  The only thing that's up in the air in that regard at the moment is if Bruce Banner will be in it.

I've got no problem with the Hulk being in the movie but I'd hardly consider it a "must".

Make sure the Avengers are answering to Cap and not Fury? Normally i'd agree but the casting comes into conflict here. I can buy Robert Downey Jr & whatsisface playing Thor taking orders from Samuel L Jackson, but from Chris Evans? Nah. I don't have too much of a problem seeing Evans as Cap in the Cap movie, but I sure don't see him as a leader in the Avengers one.

They really need to put the hulk in the first movie. With Thor in production and the tie-in between Iron Man and the Hulk movie, they can easily keep to the original formula for why the avengters are assembled.

 

Plus the hulk is my favorite character

 Hulk has got to be in it and Norton has got to play Banner. That movie was WAY BETTER THAN IRON MAN. Yes, I said it. I'm sure that the only reason it flopped at the box office was that the average non-fanboy out there was like "yeah, I saw the first hulk movie and it sucked balls so this one is probably only going to be worse" 

Wyldstaar 5/8/2010 1:38:30 PM

Okonomiyaki and I are in full agreement.  Iron Man was a great movie, but The Incredible Hulk was fantastic.  Sadly, because it was made only five years after the first movie, it still had that nasty Ang Lee stink all over it.  Fortunately, Marvel Studios seems to be aware that this is the case.  Any mention of The Incredible Hulk film in the press has always been positive on their part, and I've seen two or three statements from them which strongly hinted at their displeasure with how Hulk was handled.  I'm sure the fact that they produced The Incredible Hulk themselves instead of just licensing it out to someone else had something to do with that attitude as well.  Having your own highly profitable movie studio means you don't have to smile and chew pleasantly when someone hands you a terd sandwich.  Marvel Studios would never allow a crapfest like Elektra to get made.
