Johnny Cash is gonna play The Hulk?
Now calm yourselves people. I know we all loved Ed Norton(some of us more than others) as Dr. Bruce Banner. But hey the ball of progress just keeps on spinning. This news is strictly a RUMOR! So don’t come after me with pitchforks when it turns out to be bogus. Here is what we found out.
Devin Faraci from CHUD is reporting that….“Reliable sources tell me that Marvel has already put out an offer, and the actor they’ve spoken to is Joaquin Phoenix, believe it or not. Phoenix is taking time to mull over the offer and the bigger implications – Marvel may yet resurrect the Hulk franchise – but Marvel hopes to have him in place by Comic Con, which is when they want to announce their new Bruce Banner.”
CHUD goes on to say that…“I’m hearing that whoever plays Banner will be the lowest man on The Avengers pay totem pole. And if Phoenix doesn’t take the part, Marvel will quickly go to someone else.”
So let us look at it this way Phoenix has been out of the scene for awhile now, maybe this could get him going again? He is way younger than Ed Norton and can’t as of yet pull the money in like Norton has in the past. So this could be legit. I guess we’ll have to wait till Comic-Con to know for sure.
