  • Of all the headlining superheroes in last summer’s The Avengers, the one who made the biggest impression was smashing, brawling Hulk and his human alter ego, the always-angry Dr. Bruce Banner, played by Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo. While Phase Two in the Marvel Studios master plan includes sequels for Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, everyone’s favorite green rage monster has a less obvious onscreen future.

    In an exclusive discussion with IAR, Mark Ruffalo himself has offered some insight on what’s in store for Bruce Banner and his other, more destructive half.

    Banner is expected to once again play a major role in the climactic movie of Phase Two, The Avengers 2, which is currently in pre-production under Joss Whedon for a May 1, 2015 release date. But at least one Phase Two entry, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, features many The Avengers alumni returning to the shared Marvel universe.

    That has some fans hoping to see more of Ruffalo in character before the return of the superteam. In an interview with Ruffalo in New Orleans promoting this month’s ensemble thriller Now You See Me, IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had the opportunity to inquire about the possibility of comic book cameos, to which a non-committal Ruffalo replied, “I don’t know, maybe, maybe not.”

    Spoiler, but if you’ve seen the post-credits tag on Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, then you know that Banner has already returned to the character for an amusing dialogue scene with Tony Stark.

    Continuing on potential future cameos, Ruffalo addressed that cameo, saying, “They haven’t talked about it with me, that kind of came up at the last minute. It was literally, they were about to wrap the movie and I saw Robert (Downey Jr.) at the Academy Awards and he had this idea.”

    “Marvel had had an idea but then they scraped it and I thought it wasn’t going to happen,” Ruffalo went on. “Then I saw Robert and he said, ‘What do you think about coming and doing a day?’ I said, ‘Are you kidding me? Bang, lets do it!’ We sort of spitballed that scene, then I came in and we shot for a couple of hours and laughed. I haven’t seen it yet but people seem to like it.”

    The pairing of Banner and Stark is indeed popular, and after The Avengers, meme-happy fans were happy to create a surprisingly elaborate online sub-sub-genre of Ruffalo/Downey Jr. fan art for the relationship now known as the “Science Bros.”

    In an odd coincidence, Ruffalo’s director on Now You See Me is none other than Louis Leterrier, who helmed Hulk’s inaugural Marvel Studios adventure with 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, which starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner.

    Collaborating with Leterrier on Now You See Me, Ruffalo found the two of them discussing how the character would evolve from The Incredible Hulk to The Avengers. “He would say, ‘What’s it going to be like?’ I had just come off of it,” Ruffalo recalled. “He wanted to know the direction we were going in and I said basically we were basically picking up where he left off but he’s just older and wiser. He was very supportive.”

  • A longtime green advocate, things got personal for Mark Ruffalo when hydraulic fracturing or “hydrofracturing” began to disrupt his hometown in upstate New York’s Sullivan County. Ruffalo educated himself on the complex practice and has been using his fame to call attention to this destructive method of natural gas extraction. The A-list activist, who recently founded Water Defense, even landed himself on a U.S. terror watch list for organizing screenings of a documentary about natural gas drilling.
    Ruffalo, who recently dialogued with Deepak Chopra, specifically seeks to fight gas companies’ positive spin about the destructive practice. Last November, he hosted a fracking awareness forum at the University of Albany, where he challenged their claim that the extraction method would bring much-needed work to low-income communities. “You don’t put everyone else in jeopardy just because its going to bring jobs,” he said on the local news, “you don’t bring your daughter to the red light district because you’re having hard times.”

  • The Playlist – Actor Mark Ruffalo is a busy man and jack of all trades. While the Academy-Award nominee meant to retire from acting in hopes of starting a directorial career with his latest, the indie pic, “Sympathy For Delicious” starring Orlando Bloom and Juliette Lewis, (no really), his cooler head prevailed and thankfully for audiences, The Kids Are All Right,” was an excellent experience that made him decide he couldn’t leave his vocation.

    Since then, he’s decided to mix it up and try anything. Anything being one of the biggest tentpoles of next year, Joss Whedon‘s “The Avengers” where he’ll play Bruce Banner and The Hulk alongside the all-star cast of Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and many more.

    But will he actually get to act alongside this cast or will he be in CGI-room far far away? That wouldn’t be what the actor would have signed up for and he told us in a recent interview that he’ll be alongside his cast the entire time. “No, no, no, I’ll be doing all the Bruce Banner stuff with the other actors. And when I turn into the Hulk, I’ll be doing all of that on set, in my suit. Not my Hulk suit but my little [mo-cap] reflector suit. And I’ll do all of that and then they’ll take that and do the motion capture.”

    So what about those persisting rumors that The Hulk will be one of the antagonists in “The Avengers.” “I can’t tell you that man! Are you kidding me?” he said, looking around the room for imaginary snipers and cameras. “This whole place would turn into a SWAT team attack!” So note to all journos, secrecy on the super-hero team-up film will likely stay all locked up.

  • While Mark Ruffalo was busy discussing nuclear energy with the news staff here at Metro, we did manage to pull him aside to chat about his directorial debut, “Sympathy for Delicious” which opens Friday, April 29th and his upcoming role as Bruce Banner (and the Hulk) in “The Avengers,” (which he tells us starts shooting on April 29th as well).

    It’s a good thing he’s already signed on to do more acting work, because after sitting in the director’s chair, Ruffalo doesn’t want to get out of it again.

    “After I was done, I was like, I’m not acting anymore. All I’m going to do now is direct,” he says enthusiastically. “This is my favorite thing in the world. When they kick someone’s ass, it’s the director’s ass usually, but you know, that’s okay. I don’t mind getting my ass kicked.”

  • You may have heard that Mark Ruffalo visited our offices today! Well, while he was here, he revealed an interesting hobby: He and his friends like to sit around and come up with alternate porn titles for his films.

    Of course, you can’t let a thing like that slide, so we asked him for some examples. Here they are!

    »”Eternal Buttshine of the Spotless Grind”

    »”The Last Asshole”

    »”In the Butt” (Mark Ruffalo’s friends have particular tastes, evidently!)

    »”13 Going on 30″ (No need to change!)

    Not bad, not bad. But let’s see what ones Metro’s friends came up with:
