Tim Blake Nelson Could Return in Another Marvel Movie
Posted 10.29.10 by Ryan
In 2008's The Incredible Hulk, while the transformation of Dr. Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake Nelson) into his villainous alter ego the Leader was only hinted at, it seemed to promise that Nelson would appear in a subsequent sequel. Nelson told The Playlist that he is contracted for more Marvel movies.
I am, but it's a question as to whether they'll make more movies, which was the [original] intention, or whether they'll take a fresh start with the villains, since they switched Bruce Banner to Mark Ruffalo. I certainly very much want to return as the Leader and I hope they'll have me. The intention was that I would come back, which is why my head starts to, um, bubble, at the end. It’s just a question as to whether a) they're going to make more Hulk movies, and b) because of Ruffalo, if they're going to use me again.
Ruffalo replaced Edward Norton for the upcoming The Avengers, and recently admitted that another Hulk was "possible."
