Mark Ruffalo Has Already Filmed Some HULK 'Motion Capture' For AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Commenting on Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy, and whether we'll get more 'Science Bros' scenes, The Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo confirms that he's already shot some Hulk 'stuff' for Age of Ultron.

Though principal photography on The Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn't start until early next month, there were action photography sequences filmed in South Africa last month which appeared to involve the Incredible Hulk on an apparent rampage in Johannesburg. When Vulture asked if the jade giant's mild-mannered alter-ego, Bruce Banner, was on the set, actor Mark Ruffalo said, "The Twitter-verse is all alive with that [question]!" He continued, "I actually already shot a lot of that stuff, we did it on motion capture, so we did a lot of that on a stage. So they’re doing all the [background] plates for that now in South Africa, and then I start work in mid-April."

When asked about reuniting with The Avengers, namely Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr., Ruffalo said "they’re going to shoot a lot of closeups [of her]," and that he's "guessing" we'll see more "Science Bros" Bruce Banner/Tony Stark scenes in Age of Ultron. In regards to the consistent rumors that Banner will have a love interest in the 2015 sequel, Mark Ruffalo only grinned and modestly said, "That may or may not be true." Anyhow, it's interesting that Ruffalo has already completed some motion capture work as the Incredible Hulk. Perhaps an early look the Goliath will be featured in tonight's Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe special on ABC. What do you think?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

No surprise there.
DaVinci31 - 3/18/2014, 9:38 AM
Unless it's really subtle and moves the story forward, I hope he doesn't have a love interest.
ALmazing - 3/18/2014, 9:38 AM

WYLEEJAY - 3/18/2014, 9:53 AM
Of course....first you'll need some viagra. Like.....a lot of it.
EdgyOutsider - 3/18/2014, 9:54 AM
Here's why I don't think we'll see a Hulk 2. I believe that he'll quit, The Avengers in Age of Ultron and go back to how things were when Black Widow had found him in the first installment. He won't be seen in the films again until Avengers 3 when Bruce and everyone realizes we don't stand a chance without Hulk coming back one more time

"they’re going to shoot a lot of closeups [of her],"

Nobody doesn't watch scar Jo for close ups.... I do hope they know that
KeefNCookies - 3/18/2014, 9:59 AM
Yes, let's inject more worthless "romance" into the picture.

#*%@ing Hollywood
TheMarvelousOne - 3/18/2014, 9:59 AM
This is going to be an interesting movie to say the least.
AverageDrafter - 3/18/2014, 9:59 AM
Motion capturing Hulk - Requires the skill and finesse of a talented, experienced, trained actor who focuses on the damning physical nuance of the role.

Motion capturing Hulk while wearing Hulk Hands - Easy as shit.

JillyMcBeam - 3/18/2014, 10:10 AM
Gusto, this is as close to a love scene you'll ever get.
VISIONaryNPa - 3/18/2014, 10:15 AM
Seeing Robert Downey's fighting skills brought up a notch for the film is going to be exciting.

what with Tony Stark getting his ass handed to him by Killian, he needs to update his fighting style especially with him and the whole team going up against Ultron and his spawn (and maybe Vision). As for Hulk "hulking out" I'm optimist to see what's in store for the film.

I'm also really really excited to see how Captain America's fighting style will be in Avengers: Age of Ultron, hoping that Whedon pulls his fighting style with that in line of his skills in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

hands down the best Hulk of the four Hulks to hit the screen.
Hulk(Avengers) #1
Hulk(Incredible Hulk) #2

Ang Lee's Hulk and Ferrigno's Hulk gtfo
