Movie Release Costumes


Marvel Studios on Friday announced that Liv Tyler will play Betty Ross in The Incredible Hulk movie, opposite Edward Norton.

The film, which is being directed by Louis Leterrier and distributed by Universal Pictures, is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 13, 2008.

Here's how Marvel describes Tyler's part in the film's story:

"As Betty Ross, Tyler will take on the lead female role. Ross is a scientist and has been Bruce Banner's key ally in the quest to rid him of the Hulk. Bruce's condition has immensely complicated their longtime romance, and has finally forced Betty to try to put the past behind her. The new movie's story unfolds when the pursuit for The Hulk - the world's most misunderstood, primal force of fury - heats up, finding Bruce Banner on the run attempting to cure his condition before his pursuers capture him. This chase is something that Betty cannot ignore - sweeping her right back into Bruce's life and the heart-pounding action that follows."

Tyler, 29, has been in more than a dozen films. Her credits include Armageddon and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

"Liv is not only a classic Hollywood beauty, but an undeniable talent. Her roles in such blockbusters as The Lord of the Rings and indie favorites like Stealing Beauty have helped her develop a unique blend of dramatic and action-adventure experience that are perfectly suited for taking on Betty Ross," said Kevin Feige, president of production, Marvel Studios. "We believe the chemistry between her and Edward Norton will explode on screen, adding another compelling dimension to the film."

Filming on The Incredible Hulk is scheduled to begin in Toronto on June 25.
