There have been many Hulks portrayed in both film and television.
Joss Whedon, writer and director of the highly anticipated superhero film The Avengers, wanted to go even deeper with the green giant. Along with Mark Ruffalo, who’s not only playing Bruce Banner but also doing the motion capture of the character, they were able to work together and figure out how they can be more accurate and different from the rest of the Hulks:
So much. A Bruce Banner who’s not obsessed with his own problems. A Hulk who not only feels flesh and blood, but is clearly an extension of Banner himself and not just a CGI thing that roars. A Hulk who feels dangerous, who might actually hurt someone we care about, who belongs in a classic horror film. And much more. He’s the hardest character by far, and ended up being the most fun.”
What does Mark Ruffalo bring to the role of Bruce Banner?
Mark is such a delightful mensch it’s stupid. His Banner is a bunch of contradictions: graceful and awkward, meek and confident, erudite and working class, funny and sad. And contradictions are what the Banner/Hulk dynamic are all about. Also, Mark kinda looks like the Hulk. So we got to build our Hulk from him.”
While The Hulk does look a lot more like Mark Ruffalo, I’m very excited to see how the character is this time around for The Avengers. There was a lot of backlash and complaints when Edward Norton was dropped and Mark Ruffalo being cast rather quickly. So far after the trailers and photos depicting Ruffalo as Banner/Hulk, the mouths of many were silenced and later turned into praise.
The Avengers (titled Avengers Assemble in the United Kingdom) is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures1, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Samuel L. Jackson.
