Iron Man 3 is just five days away. Here at my house, we’re very excited about this movie. In fact, we’re pretty much fans of most of the Marvel Comics movies or anything that involves action, explosions, and other fun.
But as I look at the entire Avengers franchise, there’s one question that has plagued me for a while. Why did the movie makers use Mark Ruffalo for the Hulk? I ask because I’m currently watching The Incredible Hulk (2008), the version with Edward Norton. My older sister tells me this is the good version of the movie. I haven’t seen the earlier version outside of the original television series when I was a kid. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love Mark Ruffalo and I think he’s great in the role. But why not use Edward Norton? If they went through the trouble of remaking the movie (again) and the franchise has marketed the movies of the other individual Avengers together under the Avengers’ umbrella, why the lapse in continuity here? It’s not an age issue. Mark is two years older than Edward.
Regardless of the reason, it certainly isn’t anything that will keep me from loving Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the entire Avengers series.
