On the red carpet of last night’s Academy awards, Oscar-nominees and The Avengers co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner were asked about the upcoming superhero movie. Obviously, they barely said anything about the project because if you know anything about “The Avengers” before Marvel inundates us with marketing, the movie will be ruined. While both actors were mostly tight-lipped about the flick, Ruffalo did tell MTV that we should expect to see The Hulk and Bruce Banner in equal measure. He added that,
“There’s some great Bruce Banner stuff [in ‘Avengers’], kind of a slant on him that we haven’t seen before,” said Ruffalo. “He’s introduced in a really great way.”
Renner told MTV that he had read the script for The Avengers and that it was “Tremendous.” He added, “I can’t tell you anything about it.”
Renner also commented on his rumored appearance in another Marvel movie. If you don’t want to be spoiled about that particular film, stop reading now.
As we reported last December, Renner’s Avengers character Hawkeye is rumored to make a cameo in Thor. Renner all-but-confirmed the rumor when he told MTV:
“I might [have a cameo in ‘Thor’],” he teased. “Go see it. Check it out.”
However, it looks like he won’t be in his Avengers gear when he makes his appearance in Thor. Renner tells MTV that he has yet to see his Hawkeye costume.
