Tim Roth is 'The Abomination'

Actor Tim Roth will play 'Emil Blonsky', aka 'The Abomination' in the upcoming comic-book-to-film sequel "The Incredible Hulk", set to start this July in Toronto.

Edward "Fight Club" Norton will play 'Bruce Banner', aka 'The Hulk' with Liv "Lord of the Rings" Tyler as Banner's girlfriend 'Betty Ross'.

According to the original comic book story, written by Stan Lee, Blonsky is a KGB agent who deliberately exposes himself to the same gamma radiation that transformed Bruce Banner into the Hulk.

"The Incredible Hulk" will be directed by Louis Leterrier of "Transporter" fame, from a screenplay by Zak "X-Men: The Last Stand" Penn.

The Marvel Studios feature will be released June 13, 2008.
