Casting Update: The Avengers

There are already rumors swirling about possible replacements for Norton in the Avengers. Although sources formerly said they were going to go with an unknown, most recent rumors say that they’ve extended an offer to Joaquin Phoenix. I co-sign this. I like Joaquin even though he had that crazy “I think I’m a rapper that doesn’t bathe” phase. Thoughts?

    He’s an excellent actor, but that crazy phase was… well, crazy. I’d be ok with this though.

    Both Joaquin and the Hulk have had moments where they freak out and do unexpected things. Both wore questionable attire while in the midst of said freak outs. So long as the Hulk doesn’t bust out any inpromptu raps, I’m on board. 😉

    Seriously, Phoenix is a great actor and I’d love to see him as Hulk.

    I’m onboard with this. I dind’t like Norton as Bruce anyway. He’s a good actor, but he didn’t fit the part to me. I thought the first movie had MUCH better casting so I’m happy they’re going back to that with this choice. Good one!

    Did you see the statement Marvel put out about this? They said Phoenix would thrive as part of an ensemble, where Norton is not creative enough. That’s pretty ballsy to say, don’t you think?

      I didn’t hear that one, but I heard the one where they blamed it on Norton and everyone else came back and said that wasn’t the case. They’re really sh*tting on the fans lately. I mean, I don’t think Norton was the end-all, be-all Bruce by any means but a lot of fans really liked him in that role and Marvel doesn’t seem to care what the fans want to see lately.
