One of the questions we were most curious to ask revolved around the ongoing Marvel universe, and if we'd see him there again after appearing in Louis Leterrier's "The Incredible Hulk" as scientist Samuel Sterns, last seen beginning a curious mutation into a character comic fans know as the Leader.
