Just recently it was confirmed that the next time we’ll see The Incredible Hulk will be in Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the God of Thunder’s own film franchise from Marvel Studios. It will mark the first time we see Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and the big guy outside of The Avengers franchise, but we’re not entirely sure what role he’ll have in the sequel’s story.
But in a recent interview at the GQ’s The Gentlemen’s Fun Awards in New York City, Ruffalo proposed his own idea for what he would like to see happen with the mean green machine on the big screen and it involves a Bruce Banner Hulk separation. Read More »

The joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stem from this universe’s collection of extraordinary – and wildly different – characters somehow managing to co-exist in the same universe. It’s always fun to pick up an issue of Captain America and see another superhero appear in to lend a helping hand. The movies have followed suit, with the heroes popping in and out of each other’s lives as they’re needed. The latest rumor smashing up the internet like Bruce Banner after a particularly stressful day suggests that the mightiest (and greenest) of the Avengers will play a role in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, lending support to the mighty son of Odin.

More often than not, the actors and actresses who bring your favorite comic book characters to life on the big screen are fans just like you. They grew up idolizing certain superheroes, and it’s a dream for them to be playing them, just as it is for you to see them become as real as they can on film. However, they can’t enjoy fandom the way we can without being swamped by other fans who want to take pictures with them and want their autograph.
But plenty of stars have found an awesome workaround that helps them fit in with the masses of fans, even at a place that’s overrun with the most rabid of them: cosplay. Many an actor and actress have worn costumes in order to walk the showfloor at Comic-Con without being mobbed by fans, and Jared Leto and Mark Ruffalo have just joined their ranks. Read More »

For the past few months, we’ve been wondering whether the Hulk would drop in on Captain America: Civil War. There have been some hints that he might be, but Mark Ruffalo‘s name hasn’t been included on any cast lists so far. Now Ruffalo has put the speculation to rest once and for all: No, the Hulk is not in Captain America: Civil War. But he almost was.
According to Ruffalo, the character was originally slated to appear, but was later written out of the script. Find out why after the jump. Read More »
Regardless of your feelings about Avengers: Age of Ultron, seeing the process of creation for a movie like that one is always fascinating. With so many moving parts to juggle, from actors and their characters and storylines to locations, effects, and all the post-production details, there are innumerable tricks and secrets to learn.
Yesterday we saw an Age of Ultron featurette showing some of the creation of Vision; today we have three more. One explains the effects that brought some powers to life. Two others explore how James Spader interacted on set with other actors including Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. (One neat bit: during takes, they had to use balls mounted a couple feet above Spader’s head as an eyeline for the giant Ultron.) Watch all three below, and prepare to Marvel at Mark Ruffalo’s continued astonishment at the particulars of his job. Read More »

Back in April, during publicity rounds for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, some new information surfaced regarding the future of The Incredible Hulk, and whether or not Marvel Studios had plans for Mark Ruffalo to get his own solo Hulk movie.
A somewhat surprising reason surfaced as to why a new Hulk movie wasn’t in the works. Ruffalo said that Universal (which made the two previous big-screen outings for the big guy) still had the rights to any future Hulk movies, putting a kink in any plans Marvel might have. However, it turns out that’s not entirely true, and Universal may not be holding up Marvel at all. Find out more about the Universal Hulk rights after the jump! Read More »
