MOVIE NEWS

Louis Leterrier told MTV Splash Page that making the Hulk the only villain in an Avengers film would be “too simplistic.” He went on to say that he doesn’t see the Hulk “killing people and being villainous of his own free will,” and “when he was the villain, he was always controlled by Loki or someone else, and it was never of his own doing.”
