Los Angeles: 'Birdman' actor Edward Norton says he declined to play superhero Hulk in Avengers films as he wanted to do more diverse roles. Norton played the character in 2008 movie 'The Incredible Hulk' but Mark Ruffalo stepped in the green suit for Avengers movies.
"My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that," Norton told NPR.
"I think you can sort of do anything once, but if you do it too many times, it can become a suit that's hard to take off, in other peoples' eyes," he added.
