Edward Norton may have acted in The Incredible Hulk a decade ago but he’s still cracking jokes about the studio that produced it. Marvel Studios is now one of the biggest film production companies in the world, releasing some of the most profitable blockbusters in film history. From Avengers: Infinity War to Captain America, Marvel is everywhere these days.
It was no surprise for there to be a few Marvel references during Comedy Central’s Roast of Bruce Willis, but the most likely source of the jokes had to have been Edward Norton and he definitely delivered on this.
The actor did not transform into the Hulk, but he did smash the production studio with some Hulking insults. When discussing Bruce Willis’ care-free attitude during the roast, Norton turned the attention on himself since he has been rumored to be the opposite.
“I tried to be like you. I did a big action movie called The Incredible Hulk. You know what went wrong? I wanted a better script.”
He continued throwing shots, joking,
“I thought we should try to make one Marvel movie that was as good as the worst Chris Nolan movie, but what the hell was I thinking.”
Norton wasn’t the only one dishing out jokes as a few other roasters gave him a hard time for being replaced by Mark Ruffalo in the latest Hulk appearance.
But at the end of the day, there was nothing but love between the two of them at the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis.\
