One of the big advantages to quality thesps agreeing to roles in comic book movies is that they’re far more likely to spill details than someone the studio has under its thumb (and a non-disclosure agreement to boot). Plus, with the Sundance fest now unspooling, several of them have descended to pimp the indie movies that the big films’ paycheques help them make. So any face time with reporters is good news for both their personal projects and us as comic book fans.
William Hurt is one such actor and when MTV collared him at Sundance, he was happy to talk up The Incredible Hulk, spilling more details of the crossover between the film and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. “"I have a scene with Iron Man, with Robert Downey,” he tells them. "It's a funky scene."
