According to Nuke The Fridge on Tuesday, Lou Ferrigno, well known for his role as the original TV series "The Incredible Hulk" confirmed at WonderCon that he'll be around to voice the "green guy" in Joss Whedon's "Avengers 2" film. The "Avengers" sequel marks the start of phase two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the director has been pretty busy lately in getting things rolling and currently in production. Celebrities such as Robert Downey, Jr. and Mark Ruffalo posted Tumblr photos of themselves on the set.
At this point, is is unclear on what aspect of the Hulk's voice he'll be playing. Nothing was said as such, but one may wonder if he's doing the grunts and growls and not much else. It is noted that Ruffalo has done the actual dialogue of the Hulk during his interactions with Loki after throwing him around like a rag doll. Considering Hulk isn't much for words, it may be unlikely that Ferrigno will be speaking at length, but more so as a supportive voice for Ruffalo's voice. Though some may think that bringing on the 80s nostalgic hero to Whedon's sequel may be more trouble than what it's worth, it is a nice nod to comic book fans.
Also, there was an obscure picture of what looked to be Scarlett Johannson's back towards the camera wearing a "Black Widow" hoodie. Unfortunately, Ruffalo's enthusiasm was paid back with a Twitter reply from Marvel Entertainment, "Flattery will get you nowhere! Probably. Maybe. *looks the other way*". Ruffalo quickly ended the banter with, "@Marvel I adore you." and then, "I'm sorry @marvel. I will be better. I'm like your black sheep Avenger".
Such flattery didn't seem to impress Marvel and the fun ended. Though recently Downey, Jr. posted a picture of a series of celebrity chairs on the "Avengers 2" set. Though nothing much was shown from the film, but more so of the actors' crazy shenanigans.
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens in theaters May 1, 2015.
