Good! Hopefully this version will be a little more lifelike than the past interpretations!

We were very excited to hear that Mark Ruffalo would be taking over as the Hulk in lieu of Eric Bana and Edward Norton in the upcoming superhero flick The Avengers, and now even moreso, since the actor has on gone and record to reveal that the latest look of the CGI hero will be done with motion captor, and will even feature more body hair than the previous versions!

He explains:

"No one's asked me to shave my chest yet, thank God. They want this Hulk to be as close to me as possible. I'll be playing him in motion-capture, so this Hulk will just be a bigger avatar version of me. As they're modeling him, they're using many of my own features, down to my scars and wrinkles. He will have body hair, but I don't know to what extent."

Nice! We're pretty down with Ruffalo in any capacity, so the idea that the new Hulk will be modeled more closely to his likeness is fine by us - especially if he ends being just as furry as the real-life actor!

YUM! Ha!

We can't wait to see how it comes out!

Come on guys, let's see a teaser pic! LOLz!

Avatar Sequels To Be Made In Manhattan…Beach

avatar sequels to be made in manhattan beach

Did you get excited there for a moment, New Yorkers? Ha!

Last we heard about Avatar 2, Michelle Rodriguez was talking about the next film being set underwater.

Now, we're hearing that James Cameron and 20th Century Fox will be working on motion capture photography and high-tech production of the Avatar sequels out of a Manhattan Beach facility.

The studio is MASSIVE at 580,000 sq ft with 15 soundstages!

Here's what entertainment office specialist Jim Jacobsen of Industry Partners had to say about the new space:

“Given the two different requirements — needing soundstages like he had before and office space, and the fact that the Hercules Campus has started demolition, it’d make sense he’d be interested in a studio operation like Manhattan Beach Studios. 90,000 square feet of space on the Westside is very difficult to put together.”

Very cool.

Sounds like it will be exciting times in Manhattan Beach pret-ty soon!
