Edward Norton Called Out Marvel At Bruce Willis' Roast For THE INCREDIBLE HULK's Script

We know that Edward Norton isn't a fan of The Incredible Hulk but despite it being a decade since the movie came out, he couldn't resist taking a shot at it during Bruce Willis' Comedy Central Roast...

The Incredible Hulk is very much the black sheep of the Marvel Studios family. It's rarely mentioned and didn't perform particularly well commercially or critically and there are a number of reasons for that. 

Behind the scenes, the movie was plagued with issues as star Edward Norton (Bruce Banner) performed a number of script rewrites and ultimately refused to help promote it after becoming frustrated with the process. As a result, Marvel Studios decided to recast The Hulk for The Avengers and Mark Ruffalo was unveiled as the new Jade Giant at Comic-Con when the cast was unveiled.

During the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis last night, Norton reportedly took a shot at Marvel and The Incredible Hulk - again - when he refuted reports about being difficult on set by pointing out that all he wanted was a "better script." Needless to say, he won't be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and probably has no interest in superhero movies but are these remarks entirely justified?
