Tim Blake Nelson on The Leader in Hulk Sequel

Tim Blake Nelson is still keen to reprise his role as Doctor Sterns — who becomes the villainous Leader — in any sequels to The Incredible Hulk, even if Edward Norton isn’t on board.

In an interview with, Nelson said: “Well, I’m signed on to do Hulk 2 and 3 whether Edward’s there or not, so it’s not even up to me.”

He went on: “When I agreed to do Hulk I signed off for two sequels, so it’s a moot question. I certainly hope Edward is on the sequel — but that’s up to Marvel and Edward.”

Norton has been reticent when discussing a  follow-up, leading to speculation that there will be yet another actor playing Bruce Banner in any future Hulk films and the Avengers movie.
