Mark Ruffalo talks 'Hulk' movie

See also

There have been several major motion pictures about The Hulk, but if actor Mark Ruffalo has anything to say about it there will be at least one more. Ruffalo recently talked to TotalFilm about his involvement in the highly anticipated upcoming film "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and his desire to star in a film about The Hulk.

The actor is currently during press for the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and talked about a possible standalone movie for the character with an environmental slant. Ruffalo would like to have more input since his screen time as the comic book character is less than fifteen minutes since there are so many characters. With a standalone movie, Ruffalo will "have a much better chance" of making the story more green.

Marvel first revealed the character of The Hulk in 1962 as the alter ego of the reclusive scientist Bruce Banner who comes to life as a large green monster with super strength the angrier Banner gets. The character next appeared in the television series "The Incredible Hulk" in the 1970s with Bill Bixby playing Banner.

There have already been to major motion pictures based on the character including "Hulk," the 2003 Ang Lee directed film in which Eric Bana played the superhero. The 2008 version, which was included as the second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starred Edward Norton and was directed by Louis Leterrier. That version changed the origins of the character by making The Hulk a military super soldier experiment gone wrong.

Mark Ruffalo was announced to portray The Hulk in Marvel's "The Avengers" and was director Joss Whedon's first choice for the role. Ruffalo was also considered for the 2008 film version until Norton was cast. Ruffalo will reprise the role in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" which has a completed script and is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
