And the casts for the new Marvel movies just keep getting better and better. This time around? The multi-talented Tim Blake Nelson has been cast as a pivotal villain in Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Blake Nelson will play a scientist known as Samuel Sterns. Marvel maniacs will no doubt recognize that name as "The Leader," a gamma-irradiated mega-genius with a giant head. Dang this should make for an entertaining movie.
Nelson, who’s probably best known for Syriana, Minority Report and (especially) O Brother Where Art Thou, will join Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, and William Hurt in Leterrier’s "semi-sequel" to Ang Lee’s oft-maligned Hulk. This one and Iron Man are expected to hit theaters next summer. Cool.
