As the tenth Doctor would say “What?” (in comically British tone)
OK, this is news I can really get behind. If Edward Norton is to be replaced as the Incredible Hulk in Joss Whedon‘s ‘The Avengers‘ then Who should it be? Well, my vote goes to David Tennant, famous for his portrayal of every ones favorite time lord Doctor Who. And, wouldn’t you know that’s the news flying around the interwebs. The LA Times reports Tennant is the latest actor to be rumoured for the role of Bruce Banner (aka The Hulk) in Marvels Avengers movie. Woo Who! Alright, to be honest this sounds like a bit Internet foolery. Especially given The Times offers no explanation for their name dropping, merely listing him as one of many offered the role. Sites with fairly credible sources reported that both Mark Ruffalo and Joaquin Phoenix had been approached. In comparison, David Tennant seems a bit sketchy. So we take this with a grain of salt. Though, how awesome would it be if this were true? Honestly, Tennant has the acting chops and the charm to pull off the role of the panic driven, emotionally withdrawn genius that is Bruce Banner. He even looks like the guy. oh god do I hope this is true. He’d be brilliant!
Since Marvel axed Norton (for no F’N reason mind you) they’ve been quick to find a replacement as they plan to present the whole Avengers cast for their panel at San Diego Comic-Con. So I guess will find out soon.
