The Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo has been discussing how he is set to become the first actor to actually play The Incredible Hulk. Despite the fact that both Eric Bana and Edward Norton have previously appeared in Hulk movies, they only played Bruce Banner, with special effects used for The Incredible Hulk. However, this time around with The Avengers, they are actually using motion capture technology, so Mark Ruffalo will be playing both Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk.
Ruffalo explained, “I’ll be playing The Hulk and I’ll be the first actor to actually do that with motion capture like they did in Avatar.” He then talked about what he is expecting from The Avengers. Mark added, “I’m very similar to what Iron Man was to the genre. I think it’s gonna be really actor driven. I think it’s gonna have probably the best of the best special effects and all I would say is trust us.”
Many people have been questioning the decision to cast Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner aka The Incredible Hulk but he has received the full back of the cast on crew of The Avengers, with many praising him for his work. The Avengers are set to assemble on April 27, 2012 in the UK and then on May 4, 2012 in the US.
