With a new actor taking over the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in The Avengers I suppose it was inevitable the big green guy would get another make-over. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with how he looked in The Incredible Hulk, but it seems director Joss Whedon and Marvel are distancing themselves from that version.
“No one has 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.”
A hairy Hulk? What do fans think about that?
As well as Ruffalo The Avengers will also star Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L.Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and will be released May 4th, 2012.
