Mark Ruffalo seems like one of the least-likely actors to lead a superhero movie his choices prior to The Avengers wouldn’t much suggest he wanted to be a franchise guy. But he was, unsurprisingly, great at playing Bruce Banner in The Avengers, and that film’s version of the Hulk got audiences more interested in the gamma-green hero than they had been in a long time. Naturally, fans wanted a solo Hulk film afterward, but Marvel has been slow to say “Ok, let’s do it.”
Ruffalo returns as the Hulk (and Banner, the Science Bro) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But what about that solo film? There’s no word from Marvel at this point, but Ruffalo says the studio seems to be in the process of figuring out an angle. Read More »
When a solo Hulk movie wasn’t a part of Marvel Studios’ Phase Two, we all assumed the character would have a bigger role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. That notion was then confirmed by studio president Kevin Feige. It made perfect logical sense, considering the teaser concept art and that fact that Bruce Banner would no longer need to be convinced to be a member of the Avengers. By the time Age of Ultron starts, he’ll be all in.
Ruffalo has been pretty open about filming Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters next May. In a new interview he talked a bit more about Hulk’s expanded role. His quotes give a tiny hint at how the character will have more to do in the highly-anticipated sequel. Read the Mark Ruffalo Hulk quotes below. Read More »

It’s far too early to throw around phrases like “best of the year.” But it’s not too early for the phrase “best of Cannes,” and superlative reviews for Foxcatcher suggest that the Bennett Miller drama has already earned that label.
Steve Carell reportedly puts in a career-changing performance as eccentric millionaire John du Pont, who becomes the benefactor to two American wrestlers — brothers Dave (Mark Ruffalo) and Mark Schulz (Channing Tatum). The real-life tragedy that took place between them makes for a sensational story, but Foxcatcher, by all accounts, is more of a slow burn, and all the better for it.
Hit the jump to get the Foxcatcher early buzz, plus a new teaser.

With each new breakthrough, HIV/AIDS becomes more treatable. But it wasn’t so long ago that the disease was completely new and utterly terrifying.
