It is no secret that Marvel have been struggling over the years to give the fans the Hulk that they have been asking for and that got closer than ever to achieving that in The Avengers. Actor Mark Ruffalo played the role of Bruce Banner aka Hulk in the Marvel movie The Avengers and he will reprise the role for the sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Shooting on Avengers: Age of Ultron has been up and running for a while and we recently got to see Mark Ruffalo with the motion capture equipment all over him. Mark has now opened up about playing Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron, admitting that the advancements in motion capture technology mean they are able to make the Hulk even better than in The Avengers.
Ruffalo was speaking to Access Hollywood, when he told them, "It's been pretty wild [getting those dots back on my face for Hulk]. The technology is really advanced, so we can do a lot more with the Hulk performance in particular than we could last time around."
Mark Ruffalo then went on to reveal that these improvements have made it possible to give Hulk his own little story within Avengers: Age of Ultron, which suggests that a future standalone movie could be possible. As well as that, Mark also praise Joss Whedon for the impressive script he has produced.
Whedon added, "So I'm really excited about the stuff we're doing right now with him and I feel like he's got some really nice nuance stuff; kind of his own little arc(s?). The [Bruce] Banner stuff is great. Joss Whedon topped himself. It's such a great, beautifully written script and really exciting and fun."
Avengers: Age of Ultron will open on April 24, 2015 in the UK, before then opening in the US on May 1, 2015.
