After Mark Ruffalo‘s superb performance playing the Hulk in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers (2012), his incarnation as the green-monster-with-anger-issues became a fan favorite; leading to the ultimate question “When will Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) be getting his own film.” Thusly, when Marvel Studios started rolling out Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor standalone movies, the Hulks absence from Marvel‘s release schedules became more apparent. Mark Ruffalo has appeased fans slightly by promising that the Hulk has a much bigger role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will this suffice? It actually turns out there is a reason the Hulk has not been included in Marvel’s scheduling for a solo outing in the Cinematic Universe, and although you may be disappointed at first, it’s actually a really cool reason. We will leave you to judge for yourselves. (more…)

Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon‘s probably been pretty busy at the moment getting the movie ready for its release next summer, but even he’s not unaffected by current events, and he has some thoughts on all the recent leaks, news and considerations about all the latest Age of Ultron and Marvel Cinematic Universe news. In a new interview, Whedon discuss the sudden revelation that a couple Thor actors are appearing in AoU, his thoughts on the announcement of the Phase 3 slate, and other Marvel issues that have come up in the news.

The Evolution of The Hulk: Mark Ruffalo Discusses Banner’s Need to Belong

In the first Avengers film, director Joss Whedon brought a version of the Incredible Hulk that had heretofore not been seen on either the big or small screen. True, actor Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal of the green goliath had the jittery-nervousness that has always been an important factor for the character that actors such as Ed Norton, Eric Bana, and Bill Bixby all included in their performances. However, the combination of his performance and Whedon’s direction and writing also highlighted a side of Banner that was a bit more self-assured and somewhat in control of the monster within. This inner transformation doesn’t look to be stopping in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, according to Ruffalo. (more…)

Hints and Spoilers Indicating that ‘Planet Hulk’ is Coming?

Since the closing credits of The Avengers, fans have been looking for more Hulk, at least the way he’s played by Mark Ruffalo. Despite the middling success of two solo Hulk movies, Ruffalo was so popular in the part that the people are eager for a third try, which wasn’t developed for Phase 2, but may very well end up on the books for Phase 3. (Discerning fans may note that Ruffalo popped up in the stinger at the end of Iron Man 3 but I digress.) So are we ever going to see another Hulk, and if so, what might it be about? New rumors abound as the title “Planet Hulk” has once again raises its head, and there may be some significant spoilage to make you believe it can happen.

Of course, if you don’t want to be spoiled, you have to the count of 10 to bail. (more…)

Ruffalo Getting His Shot at a Solo ‘Hulk’ Flick?

- 06-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Jason McAnelly

Ever since Mark Ruffalo first took on the role of the giant green menace known as The Hulk, people have been hoping that maybe, just maybe, Disney/Marvel would decide that our favorite raging monster would get a chance at his own solo flick. The last two tries at this proved to be less-than-adequate, so it would be nice to see a new incarnation, especially with Ruffalo in the starring role. So far there have been mixed responses to the possibility of this happening, although now it seems as if a solo Hulk film may indeed be on the table. Read on to hear what Ruffalo had to say about the project. (more…)

Mark Ruffalo Says Hulk Plays a Larger Role in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’

One of the absolute best parts of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers was how he got Hulk so right on screen. While Mark Ruffalo was quite impressive (as always — have you seen Zodiac?) playing Bruce Banner, it was the big green beastie who SMASHED! his way into film fans’ hearts everywhere. Now that Joss Whedon’s Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, is currently in production, tidbits regarding what to expect are trickling out. And it seems that we might see much more of Banner’s rampaging alter ego. (more…)
