Will you guys at Comicvine have a meet and greet area for fans to meet you all and give you stuff?
Or will it be more of just happen to bump into you thing?

Gutted Norton isn't reprising the role :( 
  
Don't think much of Joaquin Phoenix    . Would like to see someone like Adrien Brody take on the role though.

digging the brick backdrop, the little bit of background noise is a bit distracting though.

Babs, I haven't been on CV long, but I've watched about 40 or 50 of the site's videos (I'm guessing).  You are getting more and more comfortable in front of the camera, it seems.  This was very news-y - i.e., very professionaly sounding. Kudos.

I still liked Bana as the Hulk.  I didn't think he did a bad job, it's obvious no one liked the movie but he was okay,  In a film version of the Hulk I always thought Banner should some what of a sissy, and Norton's personality is to strong.  Bana came off like nerd so it worked.

Joaquin Phoenix looks so sexy in green skin

Kind of like the return to the old format for the Comic Vine News.  Needs background music, though.  Too ambient. 
 
As for the whole Norton thing, here's the way I look at it:  the way he rolled up on Liv Tyler in bed was WAAAAAAY too pimp-smooth for someone like Bruce Banner.  Norton's portrayal of Banner was rather inconsistent in that movie, and I think people are missing that point.  Eric Bana was a bit too whiny for being Bruce Banner, but I think he carried the scientist and general awkwardness of him through his early years rather well. 
 
What Banner needs is an actor who can mix the awkwardness of Bana's with the sort of person that Norton that could make him without going into that "pimp-smooth" area.

I don't get why Norton was given the boot. He was great right?

bring back the norton! AND KEEP THAT FREAK PHENIX AWAY FROM THE BIG SCREEN!

Posted by fACEmelter88

Ed Norton is a diva......he did the same thing during shooting of American History X, he had them change it so he would have more screen time or something. As long as the Hulk is in the movie somehow I'll be fine.
 
Babs lovely outfit but the wind chimes on your wrist were freaking me out until I realized the noise was from you bracelets, I got a fever it was scary.

Kind of looks like they shot it in an alley.

With all the drugs that Joaquin does, it should be no problem making him look like a green monster.

Posted by Comiclove5

You guys should totally come to Baltimore Comic-Con. they usually make 2 or 3 big annoncements here.

I thought he was. But I thought it was him that decided against future hulk roles?

Too bad we have to accept a third actor as Bruce Banner

Posted by 5ive

Bad idea. Phoenix has too much of the bad as look to be bruce banner, Norton was perfect. They probably should have found an unknown

Yeah, I'm not crazy about the Joaquin Phoenix as Hulk news. I loved Norton as The Hulk. :(

So did I. It sucks that Norton's not coming back to the role. He did a great job in the Incredible Hulk.

 I loved Walk The Line, so I'm kinda biased about this, but... SIGN JOAQUIN PHOENIX!!!
Posted by GreenLantern555

Well, Stan Lee and Edward Norton hated each other. Thev fought over things all the time. That's why he's not Bruce anymore.

Like the new back drop in the new place.
