Mark Ruffalo says Avengers cast is going to SDCC and they're bringing Hulk

06.27.2014

I don't think it's any secret that AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will have a little something to show us come this year's San Diego Comic Con. With the film opening in May of next year, that means this will be the only SDCC before the film's release to show us what Marvel and Joss Whedon have up their sleeves in regards to the sequel of the highest grossing comic book film of all time. Mark Ruffalo recently had a little chat about SDCC and while confirming that the cast will be flying out of London to visit the masses and that we may see some "Hulk-a-phernalia", he also has a few more things to say about his character going forward.

In regards to the difficulty of a stand alone Hulk film:

He’s a tough nut to crack of all of them, I think. He’s the one person who doesn’t want to do the very thing that all of us are dying to see him do and he’s the one person who doesn’t want to be there, and so it can get very maudlin. It could get very boring to watch the guy who’s moping around who doesn’t want to do the very thing that we’re all dying to see him do. And so I think that’s the tough part of cracking that nut. I think that’s what’s made it problematical in the past.

But I do feel like we’ve gained some ground on this new version of him, which has – he’s sort of turning to face himself, and I think the relationship between Banner and The Hulk as a conscious conflict, it could be really interesting. The one thing that I think The Hulk is terrified of is Banner, and that’s never really been mined. And now with this new motion capture technology, we can do something really exciting with Hulk that we’ve never been able to do performance-wise that I am hoping when we’re talking about doing a new version of this, that we’re really talking about having a relationship between these two entities that is conscious of each other and in conflict with each other in a really cool, interesting way.

In regards to the technology used to transfer is performance to the Hulk:

We’re a little bit behind on the motion capture technology as far as facial recognition in real time. Now we have, when I put on my motion capture suit, I look in front of me and there’s me as The Hulk. There’s The Hulk. Every move I make, The Hulk’s making it and so you have this immediate feedback like almost looking in a mirror, but instead of seeing myself, I see The Hulk, but they haven’t come up to speed on the facial recognition that way. They can capture the facial – the new technology is we can shoot the body recognition and the facial recognition at the same time, so now you can integrate performance, physical performance with the actual face and voice, but by the time we’re ready to probably – if we do another Hulk – that technology will be in real time and once that happens, there’d be no limit to what you can do creatively as far as your physical being is concerned. I can play a freakin’ parasite in the ass of a worm if I so decided to play it!

It’s so exciting. There’s no limit to where we can go. I hope to be a pioneer in this space with Andy Serkis. I worked a lot with him on this. I’m very excited by what he’s doing. We are retraining the studio to see this as integral a part as the first unit. This is not second or third unit or motion capture unit. This is first unit. This is performance. It’s completely driven by the actor and it has to be honored as much as anything else, so that’s kind of where we’re heading with this technology and it’s very exciting.

There were so many things to look forward to in the AVENGERS film that Hulk almost blindsided us with how awesome he was. I've always enjoyed the character of the Hulk in theory, but agree that they just haven't been able to get it right on his own just yet. The Avengers films have a huge advantage in that there are so many characters to jump around to. That keeps the pace going, the interest going, and one never feels the fatigue of being with the same character too long if the story falters. I'm happy that Mark Ruffalo is excited to move forward with the Hulk, and I look forward to seeing what Whedon and Co. have in store for us at next month's Comic Con.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will arrive in theaters May 1, 2015.

Love this guy

Hulk has always been my favorite ever since I was a little boy watchin Bill Bixby walk the earth in search of a cure. Love what Ruffalo has brought to the character and his seemingly only increasing enthusiasm for the Banner/Hulk relationship.

Smashing

I love Ruffalo - he has nailed Banner as much as the Hulk, I could never get on board with either Norton or Bana. I really like the Banner depth we saw in the Avengers with Ruffalo and in particular the chemistry between him RDJ. I'd like, now that the marvel universe has fleshed out a bit more, to see Avengers 3 include the beginnings of Planet Hulk assuming A2 will involve Ultron and A3 Thanos ?? but it would be awesome if they built up to a point in A3 where Hulk goes crazy on Thanos and is

Side note - I really hope we get some death of major characters this time

You know what would be pretty cool...

Andy Serkis as the Red Hulk in the stand alone Hulk film.

Solo movie

I'd be fine with no hulk solo. The character works best in an assemble movie! Too much of a good thing and all that!

I hope the future Hulk solo movie can be along the line of The Incredible Hulk, a la Man on the Run (like the TV series).

I love Ruffalo's energy and interest in playing in the Hulk. And really happy to see they've found their Bruce Banner to base the stories off of. Bana and Norton were good, but I think Ruffalo is the best they've had so far.
