The Avengers are bearing down on cinemas nationwide, and in advance of their grand arrival, Mark Ruffalo has been discussing his role as the Hulk. More specifically, he’s been discussing the possibility of a solo movie…
‘I was a comic book fan when I was a kid and I always loved the Hulk,” says Ruffalo. “When The Incredible Hulk , that show, came on, I would not miss that. And so if I was going to find myself in that world, this would be the guy that I would be most interested in doing.”
“To make a very short answer long: Yeah, I’d love to have him do his own movie.” And as for his work on The Avengers , Ruffalo is proud to have entered a very exclusive club…
“I’ve been having a lot of fun with the Hulk motion-capture stuff,” he explains. “The only distinction that I hold is that I am the only actor to ever play Banner and the Hulk. So I’ve been working a lot with ILM … no one will be able to blame ILM fully if this Hulk doesn’t work!”
Ruffalo also went on to describe how Bruce Banner fits into the team, particularly focusing upon his relationship with Iron Man.
“We’re trying to bring out this charm in him, and maybe this idea that he wants to be a superhero,” he says. “I mean, he looks at Stark and he’s like, ‘That’s the dude who did what I was intending to do. He’s the model. He made it work.’ So Banner and Stark have a very cool relationship in the movie.”
The Avengers opens in the UK on 26 April 2012.
