It’s a bromance for the ages. While it’s still unknown whether Thor: Ragnarok will explore Bruce Banner‘s relationship with the meaner and greener side of himself, we know it will show us more of the friendship between Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Ruffalo went as far as to describe the upcoming Marvel film as “a buddy picture,” although even in the tightest of friendships there are bound to be squabbles. For two superheros, however, “squabbles” is definitely an understatement. (more…)
The Internet has been talking about a new stand alone Hulk movie ever since Mark Ruffalo‘s CGI captured Hulk appeared on theater screens and stole the spotlight in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers. Not only did the Hulk bring power and destruction, but humor as well, I’m looking at you puny god. Now that Ruffalo’s is confirmed to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, folks have been asking Ruffalo about the movie and what Banner and the Hulk might be up to. (more…)
There’s a new rumor circulating the Internet that puts Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk smack dab in the middle of Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok. Throw in the additional rumor point of a third planet, involved in the story of the final destruction of Asgard and Earth, and you’ve got some prime speculation soil to work with. Could that mystery planet be… (more…)
Celebrities walking the convention floor is a fun part of any convention, but some celebrities tend to be mobbed after a few minutes. That can lead to safety issues as well as grind a section of the convention floor to a halt. Many actors don masks to walk the convention to get the feel of the convention and just enjoy themselves without having to deal with the mob. NYCC15 had a few don masks, notably Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Jared Leto (The Joker). How did they manage to mingle with the masses without causing mayhem? (more…)
With just a couple of days left until the October 2nd DVD/BluRay release date for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron one would expect Marvel/Disney to ramp up their massive marketing machine for one push at consumers. We’ve seen one gag reel already and now we’ve got another. Many of the actors during the press junket talked about how loose and fun Whedon keeps the set and now we’ve got proof. (more…)
One has to think, on the set of a film with as many explosions and serious “end of the world” moments as the average comic-book movie features, the cast has to fool around with each other a little bit in between takes in order to not go crazy, right? Well, it looks like Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was no exception to that rule during filming, and now we get a little glimpse of the madness, via a short blooper reel released ahead of the movie’s home-video premiere.
After two underwhelming Hulk movies, it might be understandable that Hollywood studios might be gun shy about sinking another nine-figure budget into an effort that looks unlikely to make a return on that investment. But is that still case? Mark Ruffalo has played the character in two successful Avengers movies, and is so far the only actor to play the Hulk in more than one movie. In other words, audiences have embraced him in the part. They may be willing to see more Hulk out on his own without the other Avengers, and certainly Age of Ultron set that possibility up. However, reports are saying now that the only thing stopping the arrival of a new Hulk at the multiplex is the will of Marvel Studios itself. (more…)
Just when you thought there was no more room in Captain America: Civil War for another instance of huge casting news, think again! Maybe. Yes, as if the entirety of the New Avengers isn’t enough, along with two villains, Ant-Man, a slew of supporting characters, and Robert Downey Jr., isn’t enough Civil War is also adding a touch of Hulk to the mix. At least that’s the word according to the Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo. You may think that’s official, but here’s the thing: no one from Marvel has told him he’s in Civil War. So who’s Ruffalo’s source? None other than Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. Confused? So is Ruffalo. Not that he isn’t down for joining the fray, or course. (more…)
Last week, Jason Statham said some stuff about the Marvel Studios’ oeuvre that were a bit, um, insensitive. That’s the diplomatic way of putting it, because actually he was downright brutal. The word ‘diss’ would not be misused in this situation. Obviously, such utterances are likely to make nerds angry, and you won’t like some nerds when their angry. And the Hulk, or rather the guy that plays the Hulk, well he’s just kind of laughing it off. In a recent interview, Mark Ruffalo was asked about Statham’s summation of his work, and that of the rest of Marvel Studios’ cast, and his reaction is just that this is Statham being Statham. (more…)
It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.
