We'll be interested to see how this goes!

Mark Ruffalo will be playing The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers movie and he opened up about starring in one of the most highly anticipated comic book movies to date! Here are some HIGHlights:

On being introduced at Comic-Con:

"It was very exciting — and I realized I had some pretty big shoes to fill. Those were my heroes up there! I was a comic book fan growing up. I loved The Hulk and The Avengers — it’s just strange to be entering that world as an actor. I never would have imagined that before.

"I was very, very nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. That’s as close you’re going to get to being a rock star as an actor. The fans — they have very strong feelings toward their comic book heroes."

On Bruce Banner, The Hulk's human alter ego:

"He’s a guy struggling with two sides of himself — the dark and the light — and everything he does in his life is filtered through issues of control. I grew up on the Bill Bixby TV series, which I thought was a really nuanced and real human way to look at The Hulk. I like that the part has those qualities."

On Marvel's split with Ed Norton:

"I’m a friend of Ed’s, and yeah, that wasn’t a great way for all that to go down. But the way I see it is that Ed has bequeathed this part to me. I look at it as my generation’s Hamlet."

We wonder if Ed feels the same way!

Are U looking forward to seeing Mark as The Hulk?

    Edward Norton should continue to be the Hulk, I was so looking forward to seeing him reprise his role in the avengers. Now when I watch it, Ruffalo will be a bad reminder of what could have been.

    Mark Ruffalo is so damn adorable. Is he married? So glad he kicked that brain tumor's ass. He'll be a good David Banner. Ed Norton was OK but smokin' HOT Bill Bixby (RIP) was the BEST David Banner of all time.

    First things 1st) Why oh why are you smart enough to be a good actor and would still decide to play the Hulk? Esp when nothing about you says The Hulk? And didn't you see them screw Ed Norton up with the extreme CGI? and 2nd) Are comic books really about to be considered our generations Shakespeare, because I think that would say alot about the degradation of the education in our society. Don't get me wrong, I love comic books, but I think they are a product to the decay of idk READING!

    I love Mark Ruffalo but I just can't picture him playing the Hulk, he's too cute and sweet.

    norton was perfect for the role
    he nailed it
    i'm a big marvel/hulk/avengers fan
    But will not be watching it because the perfect person to play the role isnt

    I grew up watching the series and I think Mark is a great choice. Tuff shit if you think Ed should get the role, looks like it won't be happening.

    He is WRONG for the part…he's comes off as a whiny girl…



  8. 8

    He reminds me of Zach Braff the way he's aging. They both look like they're melting.

    loved Ed, but LOVE LOVE LOVE mARK!

    luv him he's so cute

    Ed Norton did nail it….Mark Ruffalo is so freaking CHEESY!!!! He belongs on the Lifetime channel.



  12. 12

    No. It is beneath him. But I suppose he has to do some shlock films so he can pay the bills. I like him best in art house films.



  13. 13

    Horrible choice. Disney continues their destruction of Marvel.



  14. 14

    HELLLOOO!!!!! THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT! (Duh). David Banner is a kind, gentle soul. He DID NOT WANT to acknowledge anger or even be the Hulk. That's the entire premise. David Banner IS NOT The Hulk & The Hulk IS NOT David Banner. That's why they needed quiet, unassuming men like Bill Bixby (Courtship Of Eddie's Father), Ed Norton or Mark Ruffalo to portray Banner!!!!!!! He tried everything to be sweet & gentle - the power of anger at injustice overpowered Banner to become the Hulk & use that anger do what's right. Wake Up.

    Re: Scotch Love – Thank God someone is making sense!!!! I totally agree with you!



  16. 16

    He is short and fugly……seriously…



  17. 17

    Yes, I think he's going to awesome!

    Mark Ruffalo is a decent actor, and I have seen pretty much all the movies he been in. Good for him. The previous 2 Hulk actors were pretty good too.

    Love Mark Ruffalo, he's hella sweet and sexy. But, I'm a big Norton fan also, and must say I thought he was great in the role as the Hulk. Gosh, I still remember the last scene of the last movie, thinking, ah, I can't wait for the next one! So yeah, I am a little sad to see him go.
