As far as Mark Ruffalo knows, everyone is back on for The Avengers 2

May. 13, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Last week there was an industry rumor that some of THE AVENGERS cast may not be back for the second installment. This all starting with Robert Downey Jr.'s musings about retiring the character of Iron Man. Maybe it's all just silly Hollywood fear mongering. When Moviefone spoke with Mark Ruffalo about the situation, the actor has no knowledge of it:

Moviefone: Are you back for "Avengers 2?" There's been a lot of talk about the salary negotiations.

Mark Ruffalo: I assume so. I haven't been let go yet.

MF: Are you definitely signed on for it?

MR: Oh, yeah. I'm signed for -- oh my gosh -- six movies altogether. Five now [after "The Avengers"].

MF: So, all this speculation about recasting Thor and The Hulk is just that, speculation?

MR: That I know of. I haven't caught wind of any of that. I was surprised to hear it, because I don't even think anyone's really started negotiating yet.

MF: So there's no reason to panic?

MR: No. [Laughs] Maybe people should panic, but I don't see a reason to panic.

MF: As far as you know, everyone is back?

MR: Yeah, as far as I know. But sometimes actors are the last people to know what's going on.

MF: Would you come back if some of the other roles were recast?

MR: I think so. I'd be really sad if they did. I can't imagine that. That would be bad. "That would not be good," as Joss Whedon would say

MF: A lot of people would be very upset if you don't come back as The Hulk.

MR: I'd love to come back as The Hulk. I don't foresee not coming back as The Hulk.

I think, or hope that they would get everyone back on for the second installment. They only role I fear that would get re-cast is Ruffalo's due to all the problems with the Hulk in the past, but those were all there own separate issues. I see no reason why anyone wouldn't come back.

Hope there wont be any recast. But I must say that I am looking forward to Marvel Knights big screen reboot adaptations of Thor, in the probably far future.

No worries.

Ruffalo would be the last one to be recast. He is already under contract for another 5 movies and he was the break out star of The Avengers. So much so that they threw him into IM3 as an extra tip of the cap to fans. He is probably more likely that anyone to return.

As for the rest, who can say? They seem to love doing it, but Marvel is also notorious for low balling their talent. Marvel is rakng in money hand over fist with these films. They would be very, very stupid to screw up the

A: No. As far as I know everyone will be back.
Q: Good. I would be quite sad if everyone wasn't back. You sure everyone's coming back?

Like I've said before, this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. Not pointing fingers, but I think the fact that Downey merely said he MAY retire his version of Tony Stark turned on the supersensors in the media and every little tidbit was taken out of context and made to look like a major problem thereafter. People are making a big deal of of RDJ's "salary demands".Try to look at it from his perspective. To you and me $50mil is a massive sum. For people in the industry it's just

For people in the industry it's just another cut from the profits. To us it may look like a real demand. For him and the studios it's just business chat over coffee. Again, things will be fine!

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't come back. Marvel has more than enough money to pay the salaries of Downey Jr, Ruffalo, etc. for Avengers 2 and all of their solo Avenger films.

But yeah if Marvel were to recast anyone that we have already seen in the previous films already for Aveners 2 I would be greatly disappointed. It would just be dumb on their part. I know they recasted Hulk and Rhodey but that was awhile ago and to recast someone late in the stories and the arcs would just be

I know they recasted Hulk and Rhodey but that was awhile ago and to recast someone late in the stories and the arcs would just be terrible. I'm a big fan of continuation. I hate seeing iconic roles being recasted when the original actor doesn't even get to finish his own arc with said character.

I hope there are no re-casts. Ruffalo was a pretty damn good Banner too, and his interactions with RDJ was a highlight of Avengers.

So, so far nothing has changed and that's good.

Mark Ruffalo has been my favorite version of the Hulk in cinema. Better than Edward Norton or Eric Bana.

That's good to hear. I wonder if room has been made for Ant-Man and Wasp to join the crew.
