More ‘Avengers’ news

In the star-studded, hero-studded cast of The Avengers, set to come out in

Norton as Bruce Banner

2012, Edward Norton has been booted off from reprising his role as The Incredible Hulk by Marvel for what seems to be financial reasons. This won’t be the first time The Hulk will be played by someone else, as Norton took the role from Eric Bana in 2003’s The Hulk.

A bit surprising considering the abundance of stars commanding possibly more money that would have surrounded Norton: Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2‘s Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor, 5/6/11), Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger, 7/22/11) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury, 2012).

In other news, my friends and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings (it’s the fire hydrant if you click on their website) last Saturday for one of my friends to take on their Blazin’ Challenge, which is to eat twelve of their wings cooked in their hottest hot sauce, their signature Blazin’ sauce, in under six minutes with no liquids.

He did it very impressively in 2 minutes and 4 seconds but not without involuntary shaking (at one point, he dropped one of the wings he was shaking so bad), a swollen tongue, profuse sweating and fireball shits and stomachaches for the next 17 hours! All for his picture on the wall alongside dozens of others, and a t-shirt with something to the effect of “You might have walked on coals, but I ate them.”

Aside from the challenge, it’s a pretty poppin’ place with karaoke so loud that I couldn’t even have a conversation with my friend across the table from me.

My friend wants to hit up all of the SoCal locations. Bless his soul.

Oh, and two more days.
