It lasts about 60 seconds and consists of maybe four lines of dialogue. It is also going to make Marvel Comics fans extremely happy, more for what it promises than what it contains. 'Nuff said.
As for the movie itself, I can kinda see why Ed Norton wanted to take a stab at his own cut of the film: The second act sags more than a little, recycling the Bruce-Banner-searching-for-a-cure business that we all know isn't going to lead anywhere.
But the movie itself is not the disaster it was rumored to be, either. It's lighter and funnier in tone than Ang Lee's version, the action and mayhem is well-orchestrated, there are a couple of clever cameos aside from Mr. Stark, and the green-skinned monster looks about as photorealistic as he's ever going to get.
Still, it says something about the movie that the preview audience never exploded into applause until Robert Downey Jr.'s cameo, which is the very last scene in the film. I'll be interviewing director Louis Leterrier and producer Gale Anne Hurd via telephone tomorrow. I would have loved to talk to Norton too, but he's not doing any publicity for the film. Doh.
