ILM will provide digital updates to the pictures to further tie them into the “Marvel Cinematic Universe”. Among minor additions such as digitally inserting the character of Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, into a previously unused scene from THE INCREDILE HULK featuring General Ross, played by William Hurt, the changes will include digital replacements for actors from the two pictures. IRON MAN featured Terrence Howard as Lt. Col. James Rhodes, a friend to Tony Stark aka the titular “Iron Man”, played by Robert Downey Jr., whereas Don Cheadle played Rhodes in the 2010 sequel, IRON MAN 2. The special edition will have Howard replaced by Cheadle in all of his scenes. In addition, Tony Stark's father, Howard Stark, was portrayed by Gerard Sanders in photos seen in IRON MAN, wheras Dominic Cooper played a younger version of the character in 2011's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, set in the year 1943. Sanders will be replaced by a digitally aged Cooper in all the shots depicting Howard Stark. A special edition of IRON MAN 2, where the character is played by John Slattery in archived footage dating from 1974 in the film's context, is slated for a 2013 release. THE INCREDIBLE HULK starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, who turns into the titular “Hulk”. Conversely, Banner is played by Mark Ruffalo in 2012's feature THE AVENGERS, which picks up with the character where THE INCREDIBLE HULK ended.
