First of all I'm not against another Hulk movie - I loved both of them - the second one especially.  Hell - I think I might have enjoyed the second one a little more than Iron Man - but only because it was Hulk, plain and simple.   But to me it wouldn't make sense. 

krathwardroid:  What would be the point of having an Avengers team if they were going to turn their heads from  tasks that they didn't feel they were up to?  It's not like they see Hulk on the news tearing things up and see who can say "Not it" first.  What would the point of having an Avengers team if they were only available when it was conveinent for them?  Isn't the point of an Avengers team to take care of stuff the government can't handle themselves?

And again, let me reiterate, I'm not saying that it has to make sense - I said it would be alright if it didn't.  I was just agreeing with Letterier than it wouldn't and I was stating to "whoever - I forgot his name" that Letterier did not in fact say they couldn't do it just that it wouldn't make sense.  It's not like movie audiences even think that deeply anymore, it seems they are going for the most shallow movie fare more and more today.

What I want to know is what is going on in the Marvel (movie) Universe, right now, that has Nick Fury scurrying around collecting people for a team. That is the question.  Is it because of the whole Hulk/Abomination situation or is there lots of other things going on that we don't know about.  Because I doubt he's doing it just in case.

 Is there really an argument going on based on a comment by Leterrier? I thought Incredible Hulk was good but lacking in a few parts and I definitely think that had Norton not gotten involved in the scripting that it could have gone the way of Clash of the Titans. If he doesn't make another Hulk movie I'm good with it. The character was re-established and set up for an Avengers movie that is closing in daily on putting Whedon in the directors chair apparently. Let him take the reins on Hulk.

Much more importantly, good lord Johannsen is looking good as Black Widow. I had faith in the casting but am very pleasantly surprised.

It has been reported that both Iron Man and Iron Man 2 are set before the events in The Incredible Hulk.  That being the case, it would seem that Nick Fury and SHIELD was happy to let the US Army have a go.  The end of Iron Man made it pretty clear that the Avengers of the movie universe is going to be organized by SHIELD.  The Avengers are only going to go after the Hulk if Nick Fury gives them orders to do so.  Also, if the team is already busy fighting aliens or Hydra or something in New York, they're not going to be able to go to New Mexico to fight the Hulk.  There could be any number of reasons why the Avengers can't be bothered to hunt down the Hulk.

MrJawbreaking... Just to be clear... I agree with you.  The Mandarin is the reason Fury is putting a team together.  That is why they approached Stark.  He stepped in and took out a stronghold of the Mandarin, singlehandedly.  

To add on... Hulk will fight the Avengers in the movie (he always does).  My thoughts on this are that they will be using The Leader as the shadowy figure, behind the scenes, antagonist to why the Hulk is going on a rampage and they have to step in, The Leader has a habit of trying to telepathically mind control Hulk.  Then in the bigger scheme of the Avengers there will be the Mandarin, whom will prove too difficult for Stark to defeat on his own after elements of IM2 reveal, besides Mandarin won't reveal his real plan until that point in the timeline.   These are the villains they have set up in previous films and will use in the same context as the comics.  No need to assume otherwise.  At least, thats how I'd write it.

MrJawbreakingEquilibrium: Yes, that's what they are for, which means they would have more pressing issues to deal with at any given time as opposed to always having to contend with the Hulk. Not to mention Hulk is not a bad guy, per se. Just misunderstood. Most of the time it's General Ross or one of his other myriad villains who are pursuing him, not S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers. So yeah, Hulk sequels make sense in an Avengers-occupied world. And while we're talking about it, why didn't Iron Man intervene with the Hulk and Abomination battle in Harlem? He was certainly around by that time. Could it be that Iron Man had more pressing issues to contend with as opposed to a major incident taking place in New York City? :P Exactly. Makes sense.
