Just finished the Iron Man roundtables — full transcriptions will be up soon — but I wanted to quickly clarify what’s up with Ed Norton writing The Hulk.

The dirt paraphrased from Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige goes like this: Zack Penn wrote a few drafts that were great starting material, and that when Ed Norton came on board he started suggesting ideas as a fan of the character. Eventually, Feige asked if he wanted to just write the script, which Norton did. So in addition to being Bruce Banner and performing whatever mocap or percap will be used to make the Hulk, his name will be riding high as screenwriter.

Take all this as you will. Or more specifically, take it to mean that Norton’s participation was contingent upon writing the script. We’ll see how this turns out. At least his Hulk is green.
