Lou Ferrigno will always be remembered for his performances as The Incredible Hulk back in the 70s television series. However, Lou is set to return to the character that made him a star, by voicing The Hulk in the forthcoming movie The Avengers.
Ferrigno explained to Comic Book Movie, “I did the voice for The Hulk, I did the growl and everything for the character in the film. I’m excited about that, it will be great for everyone to hear me as the Hulk on The Avengers.”
He added, “The legacy has been going on for 40 years and it’s great to still be associated with the character while I am constantly reinventing myself. The Hulk character will continue living on for generations.” Lou then went on to praise Mark Ruffalo, who is portraying The Hulk’s alter ego Bruce Banner.
He continued, “I think it’s great and I think Mark is a great actor; it’s going to be great as The Avengers is $300 million budget. Mark has what it takes like Bill Bixby had and I’m excited to see him.”
The Avengers will be released in the UK on April 26 and the US on May 4.
