Sound design featurette for The Avengers reveals how Hulk's voice was created

Even with THE AVENGERS already in theaters and cleaning out our wallets like Star Wars in 1999, the fervor over the superhero opus has hardly died down.  With that said, we have a new featurette from Soundworks for you that is actually one of the best of the bunch. 

Highlighting the sound design of the film, the featurette goes into the working process behind the sound team with sound designer Christopher Boyes and director Joss Whedon, including how The Hulk's voice was created, which may surprise you. 

Sound design can make or break a movie, especially one of THE AVENGERS magnitude and thankfully these guys killed it.  Blending the familiar sound effects from previous Marvel films (Cap's shield, Thor's hammer, Iron Man's boosters, etc) and inventing some new ones really helped tie everything togther in a great way.

Have a listen:

THE AVENGERS is currently in theaters.

Extra Tidbit: What film do you feel has the best sound design? Too many for me to name, but standouts include the Star Wars films, LOTR trilogy, Die Hard, The Matrix, and most recently Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

Best sound design?

RAMBO (2007); Band of Brothers; Transformers II (only reason to see it); Pink Floyd DSotM/WYWH Immersion Blurays; Serenity; Blade Runner... most of those title are HUGE surprises, and a pure audiogasm. So many to choose from, though. Tough list to make.

Lou is fookin' awesome. I loved his cameo in The Incredible Hulk as well as the fact that he voiced the green beast there as well. More than anything I'm loving how The Avengers has turned into a solid pop-culture phenomenon over the span of two weeks. Toys, t-shirts, countless memes, gifs, one-liners, truckloads of interviews, etc. This looks like a great summer to be a superhero fan. And it'll only get better once the monster known as The Dark Knight Rises comes out.

Just incase you didn't know, Lou voiced Hulk in "The Incredible Hulk" movie also. As well as his obvious on screen cameo.
