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?
