With Tim Blake Nelson appearing as Dr. Samuel Sterns in The Incredible Hulk, many presumed that we would see the character turn into The Leader in a later Hulk film. After all, when we last saw Sterns, he had radioactive goo dripping into his head. That was five years ago, and we’ve not had a solo outing for the Hulk since then. MoviePilot has the scoop from Tim Blake Nelson on whether The Leader may yet make a cinematic appearance.
The actor said, “I’d love to, but that’s kind of up to them. I’d absolutely love to, because I loved doing that movie. Louis Leterrier is a hell of a director. It is not easy to do action sequences at the level he can. I signed a contract for two sequels. It was a three picture deal. I think once they decided not to move forward with Edward Norton, that was it. I’m very eager, though.”
With Mark Ruffalo now in the role of Bruce Banner/Hulk, here’s hoping we get another solo film for the big green guy somewhere down the line. As for The Leader, he’s one of the Hulk’s greatest foes, so that would definitely be one character worth revisiting.
