News has slowly been coming out about Marvel's plans to link their upcoming films, in what might be the groundwork for a future Avengers movie. The first link in that chain is supposed to occur this summer in The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man, but no one knew what that link would be. Well now, Ain't It Cool News has a report about that crucial cross-over scene.

So the scene that was shot was for the Hulk with General Thunderbolt who is very important to the Hulk. Anyway, Tony Stark meets with him - which of course is a straight prelude to the Avengers Movie.

So, Tony Stark will be making an appearance in The Incredible Hulk. What remains unclear is whether there will be a scene in Iron Man where we see Edward Norton or any of the other actors appearing in The Incredible Hulk.

Iron Man, starring Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwynth Paltrow flies into theatres on May 2, 2008. The Incredible Hulk, starring Edward Norton, William Hurt, Liv Tyler and Tim Roth arrives just a little over one month later, hitting the screen on June 13, 2008.
