It looks like Ed Norton subscribes to the philosophy, “bros before roles.”
Norton played "The Incredible Hulk" back in 2008, but Marvel said in July that they were looking for "an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members" to play the gigantic green monster in "Avengers."
But it doesn't look like that decision has left Norton with a grudge...at least, according to Ruffalo. “We feel like it’s our generation’s ‘Hamlet,’” he explained to the New York Post's Page Six. “We’re all going to get a crack at it.”
With that kind of attitude, it makes sense that their friendship would remain unaffected. “We’re copacetic,” Ruffalo assured the Post. “We’re cool.”
Phew! Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Can you imagine how awkward that questioning would have been if they weren't?
