VFX supervisor explains what it took to create the Hulk's "bubble butt" and make the monstrous hero look more like Mark Ruffalo.
You may have heard that Lou Ferrigno voiced the green giant in the new Marvel movie. Not so. This time around, the actor playing the Hulk also voiced the Hulk, and he also did a lot of the motion-capture work.
Forget "Thor: Ragnarok," the Avengers love-hate relationship was first on display in a 1980s made-for-TV movie.
As Ruffalo noted to the SDCC crowd, the Hulk we meet in Ragnarok, which opens in theaters on Nov. 3, has gone through some big changes since we last saw him rocketing away from Earth in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Thor: Ragnarok has already spawned Marvel’s most-watched trailer ever. Now the threequel is spawning some smashing toys. Hasbro has begun unveiling its lineup and, as with the Lego playsets we revealed earlier, the toys and role-play items play up the gladiatorial match between Avengers frenemies Hulk and Thor.
Although Marvel fans have a pretty good idea about what Chris Hemsworth’s Thor was up to while his Avengers buddies were smacking each other around during Captain America: Civil War — he was hanging out with his new roommate Darryl — they’ve been largely kept in the dark about his upcoming adventure Thor: Ragnarok, save for some clues provided by the casting of Mark Ruffalo (as the Hulk) and Jeff Goldblum (as the Grandmaster). Now, the studio has released an official plot synopsis for the film — and it confirms plot points many have long suspected.
On Wednesday’s "The Tonight Show," Mark Ruffalo played Best Friend Box with Jimmy Fallon, which is similar to "The Newlywed Game" but for friends — and funnier.
A certain web-slinging hero has been confirmed for Captain America: Civil War — while a familiar green favorite will be sitting this one out. After much speculation, Entertainment Weekly has announced that Spider-Man will make his Marvel movie universe debut in the next Cap film (in theaters May 2016). Spidey, of course, is no stranger to cinema: The character has been played by Toby Maguire in three Spider-Man films and Andrew Garfield in two Amazing Spider-Man films, all released by Sony Pictures.
The sexual tension between Bruce Banner, aka Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), is palpable in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
