So, we’ve all oogled and awed over the trailer for this May’s Iron Man flick, and I think I can safely say that with Ed Norton in the main role (plus the CGI tests looking good, as seen above), my excitement level for The Incredible Hulk is starting to get up there.
However, after reading this lil’ sliver of a spoiler about a very interesting connection between the two flicks, as mentioned by William Hurt to MTV...we are at Geek Level Omega.

I’m sure you heard the rumors earlier this year about Samuel L. Jackson appearing as Nick Fury in both Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk to start creating a shared universe, to possibly be explored in a future Avengers flick.
It looks like it’s been stepped up quite a bit, as Robert Downey Jr. will be making a cameo in The Incredible Hulk in the full red & gold armor!
Here’s what Willie Hurt had to say about it…
“I don’t know how it’ll work,” Hurt admitted, saying it was a thrill to appear as General Thaddeus Ross during Downey’s scene. “I know it’s weird [to work with a character from another movie], and to know it’s a device. We did something; I don’t know what that’s going to be like [to watch].”
Ok, so he gives us next to nothing, and almost sounds like he’s a bit confused, but hey, the Movie Marvel U is coming together! Up next: Tobey McGuire gets bitchslapped by Michael Chiklis in Fantastic Four 3.
