AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (2015): Mark Ruffalo Talks About Hulk’s Role

The Hulk Avengers

Mark Ruffalo Discusses Hulk’s Role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. There hasn’t been much details on Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Mark Ruffalo shed some light on Bruce Banner/Hulk’s role in the movie, especially with the creation of the titular villain Ultron.

In an interview with Total Film Magazine, Mark Ruffalo says that Tony Stark won’t be the only one taking the blame for Ultron’s creation. “Banner’s been living in Stark Tower. They’ve been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He’s doing work that augments Tony’s own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong…” Based on this, we can conclude that this would be the reason for the battle between Hulk and the Hulkbuster that we saw in the trailer so we shall wait and see. But, Bruce will be getting close with one of the Avengers in the film according to what he says next. “His relationship with Natasha deepens. There’s something similar about the two of them. I see them as lost souls. They’re kindred in some ways.”

Well we heard from Bruce Banner, but what about the Hulk? “He does feel more comfortable with himself,” the actor says. “His confidence is getting better. But, you know, that gets shaken. His ability to handle the Hulk really gets thrown into question in this film. The hard part is coming back. Hulk doesn’t want to cede his place. It’s much harder to come back from being Hulk than it is to get into him.”

It would be interesting to see the dynamic between Banner and Hulk as they fight for dominance. “I think there’s a whole other chapter we haven’t seen yet where you find the other nuances within him. The battle of identity going on between him and Banner is all about establishing dominance. The only thing that Hulk is really afraid of is Banner. That’s an interesting dynamic.”

Are you excited to see what’s in store for the Hulk in the next Avengers film?
