In an interview with G4’s Attack of the Show, Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier dropped a few news bits about the upcoming film, including that the original Hulk, Lou Ferrigno did take him up on his offer at the New York Comic-Con to provide the voice for the Jade Giant in the film, as well as appear in a small role in the coming movie.
And perhaps what will grab comics fans attention was the revelation of an Avengers-themed Easter Egg, noting that, while Captain America’s sheild was seen (for eagle-eyed viewers) in Iron Man, Captain America himself makes a brief appearnace in The Incedible Hulk. Leterrier also said that he would love to direct a sequel to the film if this summer’s movie is successful enough to warrant one.
Addressing the Edward Norton controversy, the director said that there were disagreements between himself and Norton on the film’s first cut, in regards to what was cut. Leterrier said that it was a normal process between himself, Norton and Marvel; and that the WGA had the final say on who received screenwriting credit for the film, which resulted in Norton’s screenwriting credit being removed from the film.
