“You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry” takes on a whole new meaning for Edward Norton and the over 900 fans that are publicly upset about the sudden end of what could have been a beautiful run as the big, green Hulk for the 40-year-old actor.
Norton received an outpouring from fans following the surprising move Marvel Studios made last week, in which they announced that Norton would not reprise the role of the Hulk for the upcoming Avengers and Hulk 2 movies.
If Marvel Studios’ decision also makes You angry, read on and post your comments after the jump.

This weekend the story broke that Marvel was seeking to replace Norton with ”an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members,” which includes Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, and [lastfm]Scarlett Johannson[/lastfm].
There was also speculation that Norton would not be signed on because of financial reasons. Whatever the reason, it is pretty safe to say that Norton will not join forces with the all-star cast.
What we really care about is how you have responded to this decision. As soon as “the people” got word of Marvel’s decision, an outcry was heard across the world wide web, particularly on our favorite obsession, Facebook.
After the outstanding amount of protest against dropping Norton, the actor took to his own Facebook page to address the issue.
Check out the photo gallery for photos of the actor with castmembers from “The Incredible Hulk” and read what Edward Norton posted on his Facebook page to answer his fans’ questions.
