Edward Norton addresses Hulk controversy on his Facebook page

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ed Norton seems to be the only person who hasn’t weighed in on the ever-shifting “Norton Out As Hulk” story that has consumed movie Web sites for the past few days. Well, that changes now.

Norton addressed the controversy with a note posted to his Facebook page. In it, he states he’s “appreciative” for the fans’ support in the matter, and that the outcome of the negotiations with Marvel “makes me sad.”

“But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be part of the Hulk’s long and excellent history,” Norton writes.

That doesn’t sound like an actor who lacks the “creativity and collaborative spirit,” as Marvel painted Norton over the weekend.

Norton, who seemed very appreciative of being part of the Hulk franchise, if even for a little while, concludes by saying, “Hulk is bigger than all of us, that’s why we love him, right?”

But will we love the NEXT guy to play Bruce Banner and his green alter ego? Click here to read Norton’s entire statement.
