Here Come Two New Challengers: Sentinel and Hsien-Ko

The Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds release date is approaching, and the little boy or girl in us all cannot help but jump and SCREAM with excitement. With only three weeks remaining until launch, Marvel and Capcom have announced another pair of toons. Marvel brings back well known Sentinel, a robot solely made to destroy the X-Men. Capcom announces Hsien-Ko, a character looking like she came straight from an anime with blue skin and long, devastating, feline arms. Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be released on February 15, and, personally, I am counting down the days until I can play as Super Skrull.

Edward Norton Responds/Rumor as to Who Has Been Offered the Part

The real Hulk has finally responded. Edward Norton has released his own statement about being recently snubbed by Marvel for the Hulk role.

“I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and The Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond.

So here goes: It seems it won’t work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in The Avengers. I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn’t turned out as well as we hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a part of the Hulk’s long and excellent history.”

According to E! Online, someone has already been offered the role of Bruce Banner. You won’t believe who. Move past the break to find out.

Ed Norton’s Agent Responds to Hulk Snub

Ed Norton’s Agent Responds to Hulk Snub

By now you probably know that Edward Norton will not reprise his role as The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers movie directed by Joss Whedon. So what’s the reason for this? Kevin Feige, president of Marvel, recently gave an “it’s not me, it’s you” reason for snubbing Edward Norton out of the Bruce Banner role. Here is the statement released by Feige.

“We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks.”

Ouch. So it seems Feige and Marvel think that Norton can’t be a team player. Norton and his side couldn’t stay quiet for long. Norton’s agent, Ben Swardstrom, recently released a statement firing back at Feige calling his remarks “misleading” and “mean spiritied.” Move past the break for Swardstrom’s official statement.

Johann Shmidt a.k.a. Red Skull has had varying backgrounds in the comic, but according to empireonline.com:

…he’ll be a Nazi officer personally groomed by Hitler himself for terror and intimidation. After wreaking havoc through Europe, he’s eventually matched up against Steve Rogers.

Weaving joins Chris Evans who will play Captain America himself and Samuel L. Jackson who is of course, Nick Fury. Filming begins next month in the UK and is set to be released July 22 of next year.
