Mark Ruffalo says his Hulk role in Avengers 2 is bigger & more complex

06.05.2014

Earlier this year Mark Ruffalo teased Bruce Banner will get to do "great stuff" in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, and Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige has also said the Hulk will have a bigger part in the upcoming film. In an interview with Total Film, Mark Ruffalo talked some more about his expanded Hulk role, and he says it will be more complex than it was in the first film.

[My role's] even bigger than last time, and it's more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc.

Last month we learned Mark Ruffalo is working with Andy Serkis to perfect the Hulk, which might be one of the reasons why Ruffalo says he has fully embraced motion-capture technology.

I'm really tripping on the technology of this motion-capture stuff… now I just completely embrace it and see it as this other exciting place we can go as performers.

The question is why will the Hulk's role in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON be more complex? Maybe it has something to do with previously released concept art below. Mark Ruffalo's Hulk was one of the best things about THE AVENGERS, and I can't wait to see how he'll be used in the sequel.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will open on May 1, 2015.

Yeh, I prefer the idea of Ultron controlling the Hulkbuster than Hulk losing it in this movie and Tony going up against him...especially if Hulk 'losing it' is given the brief treatment it was given in the first movie. If they go down a losing it route I'd hope for Hulk being a bad guy for a significant portion of the movie - take the ending of the first Ultimates animated movie for example - that did it brilliantly - the Avengers beat the Chitari and then have a fun fight with the Hulk. Then

Then again anyone who loved Cap's fight with the Hulk in that movie or Roth's Blonsky one on one with Norton's Hulk might first prefer to see Cap take on the Hulk before the Hulkbuster gets its shot.

Or maybe Stark creates Ultron to one day stop The Hulk when he goes "apeshit", like someone said.

Hmmm

How come everyone is assuming hulk has lost it here? Maybe that's ultron and that's am earlier version/something he's controlling? He is built by Stark so it's possible he's able to take over Starks tech

So you are saying Ultron is controlling the Hulkbuster in the concept above. That could be so but we have heard plenty of reports from credible sources that say Hulk goes nuts in this movie. Besides Ultron, he is the biggest threat to the Avengers. Not even Quicksilver or Scarlett Witch pose as much of a threat in the script as Hulk does.

There was some early rumors when filming started that there was a "Hulk out of control" scene being shot in Rio. That's when the Hulkbuster armor popped up. It could be BS or just a bad guess, but that's how it got started.

HULK has a big role, not Banner. Wording is everything and Ruffalo knows it.

So we all know by now Hulk will be going apeshit. I just hope its something like his GF dying or someones death just makes Banner lose it.

Still betting on "Planet Hulk"

Hulkbuster means Hulk's lost it. Hulk rages, kills a main character, gets shipped off at the end of the movie. Post credits: Sakaar. Plus the Avengers films viewed in 3 acts wld let a World War Hulk scenario to lead into an explosive finale with Thanos in Avengers 3. Plus in the cape movie arms race with DC n Xmen, a fan favorite standalone would bury all competition.

"The question is why will the Hulk's role in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON be more complex? Maybe it has something to do with previously released concept art below." What with the new characters in this chapter...existing ones saying they'll do more (Hawkeye, Hulk etc etc), who the bad guy is...and perhaps a tease of what's next (a minor Thanos plot)...I just can't see how a plot involving the Hulkbuster taking on Hulk is going to feature in this. Don't get me wrong, I'll be up for watching an 8

Don't get me wrong, I'll be up for watching an 8 hour movie...but that concept art will probably just remain concept art. Honestly given how well the Winter Soldier did team up's (mainly Cap and Widow), I'd hope Marvel movies look at this more in order to make the most of their heroes. Iron Man 4 could just be Iron Man Vs Hulk coz of something that happens in Avengers 2.

Hmmm...maybe you haven't been following how they changed Ultron's creation from Ant Man to Iron Man. This only leads me to believe that somehow Ultron sends Stark's suits against the team at some point.

Maybe the hulk buster suit gets used for the abomination? Just a thought.

adaifallah - true...but perhaps I was just assuming (or wishing) that the first 'proper' taste we get of the Hulkbuster is Tony using it against Hulk coz Hulk has gone nuts. Given Hulk's mini losing it moment in the first movie, I hope they don't do that again in the second movie but save it for a proper losing it moment - which probably means making him the bad guy for a good portion of the movie.

Marvel should just give us an Incredible Hulk 2 sequel instead of an Ant Man film at this point. It would probably be a better idea considering how terrible finding a director has been going.

Agreed. People just aren't thinking about the logistics of an Ant Man movie. Him getting small is fine for hiding or sneaking, but his main "power" in the cartoons & comics is growing, and trying to work in a 100' Hank Pym (or whoever they're having controlling the suit) is simply not going to work unless they go full silly and don't even try to blend it with Marvel's universe.

Really - are you off your rocker ??? Seriously mate Serkis is a pioneer on bringing a performance to life from Mo Cop - he's not being brought into this film to give monkey advice

You're right I love Andy Serbia he is one of my favourite ever actors but back to Andy Serkis and his monkey skills I have to say I can't wait for Star Wars Episode VII - Revenge of the Monkey Siths

Mark Ruffalo was easily one of the best things about Avengers. He felt like the most fully-realized, nuanced character. Like for once, someone got the Hulk right. So this sounds good to me.

enough already

Every fucking character says their role is bigger and more complex for this movie, even the new characters, so what is this movie gonna be like 5 hours long/ Good god everyone shut up and just act stop telling how your role will be bigger, it cant be bigger for each character in the movie.

Well, SHIELD is dead, which takes out about 40% of the previous movie, which leaves a lot of room for the other characters. We might not even get a Nick Fury cameo in this film, so the Avengers themselves have to run the show. So by default, ALL of the characters will be featured more than in the first film.

Ultron manipulation

we already know that Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch will go against the Avengers without being villain characters. Maybe the Hulk will be the same. Maybe Ultron figures out how to manipulate the Hulk into hindering the Avengers.

Im more curious about Iron Man and Captain America meeting again for the first time since Avengers. Each had to deal with major american issues. Where was Captain America when the Mandarin attacked US soil? Where was Iron Man when SHIELD began attacking the Capital?

They already did the whole "Hulk gets manipulated by the bad guy" thing in the first movie. I really doubt they'll recycle that plot again here, especially since the Hulk's whole character arc in The Avengers is that he's in control of the beast now.

Meh.....the SHIELD attack lasted for about 10 minutes. Not hard to justify why Stark wasn't there.
