Admitting that he wants to star in a standalone film about the Marvel green giant, Ruffalo says, 'I'm hoping we're going to see a 'Hulk' movie.'
Being a part of "The Avengers" is probably not enough for Mark Ruffalo as he admitted that he wants his own The Hulk movie. Speaking to E! News when attending the Hollywood premiere of the superhero ensemble film, Ruffalo said, "I'm hoping we're going to see a 'Hulk' movie. Why don't we start an online petition for a Hulk movie?"
Ruffalo then joked that if he gets his own 'Hulk' movie, he wants his wardrobe to be a bit more pleasant. "I'm not well-endowed, and those suits don't really show you off in the most [flattering way]," he explained.
In another interview with The Hollywood Reporter during the Tuesday, April 11 event, Ruffalo admitted that he was terrified when he first watched himself as the green giant. "I got a huge, huge smile on my face. It scared the hell out of me, as well," he said before adding that his character reminded him of his father when he "was really mad."
Though he got scared when first seeing himself as The Hulk, the husband of Sunrise Coigney gushed that he was really interested in bringing the beast to life "in a way that we haven't seen it before." He continued sharing about some unflattering experiences when working with the motion capture to portray the character, "Let's just say that the leotard that you have to wear for the motion capture isn't the most flattering."
The Hulk has been adapted to the big screen for several times. In 2003, Ang Lee directed an Eric Bana-starring "Hulk", which grossed $245 million worldwide. Five years later, Bruce Banner was brought back to cinemas by Louis Leterrier in "The Incredible Hulk", which starred Edward Norton and took in $263.4 million worldwide.
Norton was initially courted to reprise his role in "Avengers", before Marvel Studio finally tossed him and replaced him with Ruffalo following some disputes between the movie execs and Norton's agent.
Joined by Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner, Ruffalo will appear in "Avengers", which will open wide in the U.S. on May 4.
