    Marvel Studios said over the weekend that it will not cast Edward Norton as The Incredible Hulk in The Avengers.

    Norton, who played the role in The Hulk movie and reportedly clashed with producers over the script, was ripped a new one by Marvel Studios' president of production, who said in a statement that "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." That sounds like a real slap in Norton's face.

    Suggesting that Norton has no intention of allowing the matter to fade away, his agent quickly lashed out at what he called "offensive statement." The agent said that negotiations on terms of a deal had been going on until last Wednesday when a representative called to say that Marvel had decided to go in another direction with the part.
