In taking the role as Emilo Blonsky, Roth joins Edward Norton and Liv Tyler in the Louis Leterrier-directed drama being financed by Marvel Studios and scheduled for release by Universal Pictures in June 2008, Variety reported Thursday.
According to the storyline, Blonsky is a KGB agent who deliberately exposes himself to the gamma rays that caused Bruce Banner to morph into the Hulk -- only upping the dosage to make him larger and stronger than the Hulk. Unable to return to human form, Blonsky blames Banner and vows to destroy the Hulk.
