In “Iron Man”, Nick Fury (played by Samuel L. Jackson as envisioned by writer Mark Millar and artist Bryan Hitch in the Marvel Ultimates universe) showed up at the end to talk to Tony Stark about “the Avenger Initiative”. With Marvel now in full command of their products, it was rumored that someone from Iron Man would be making an appearance in “The Incredible Hulk” to link the two movies — but more importantly, their universes — together. Now we have actual confirmation: Yes, Iron Man himself (Robert Downey Jr.) WILL, indeed, be making a cameo appearance in “Hulk”.
Here’s what the Scifimoviepage.com has to say about Tony Stark’s cameo in “The Incredible Hulk” in their review of the movie (the review itself is positive, so take a look at it):
One can see that Marvel now has more control over the movie adaptations of its material in the way they have now brought the concept of “cross-overs” to them. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man) makes a cameo appearance towards the end of the movie and hints that a “team” – no doubt the Avengers – is being formed.
Last month, Cinematical revealed the Tony Stark’s cameo, describing the scene as such:
The panel audience got a special treat that we in theatres (most likely) won’t — after the trailer, they showed the much-discussed cameo that Tony Stark makes in Hulk. Stark is sitting with General ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross in a bar — and Ross is completely drunk. Stark says “I hear you’ve got an unusual problem.” “You should talk,” replies Ross. Stark then shoots back, all smooth: “You should listen.”
Not sure if it’s the same cameo scene or two separate ones. I guess we’ll find out for ourself when the Hulk smashes June 13, 2008.
