Mark Ruffalo Compares Bruce Banner's HULK Transformation To An "Addiction Problem"
As a few new tidbits of info leak out about The Avengers from the movie's cast, Ruffalo describes his Banner as a "reluctant part of the team", and gives us an insight into his painful transformation into The Hulk..
One of the main mysteries for fans when it comes to Marvel's The Avengers has always been whether we would see a Hulk who was out of control, and a threat to the public and his teammates. A few things have since been cleared up and from what we now know the not so jolly green giant will pretty much be a team player. Or will he? It's clear he will ultimately fight with the team in the end, but Mark Ruffalo confirms that he will definitely still be a reluctant addition, and cause a few problems along the way!
Ruffalo says Banner is a reluctant part of the team, and said his metamorphosis is as painful to the character as an addiction problem – even if he can sometimes be used for good.
“The rage is something that is like going on a binger — you wake up after a blackout and you did all this f—ed up shit. Oh God, what did I do? And so we were talking about it like that, actually. At the beginning of The Avengers, “[Banner] starts like he’s sober in a weird way. He’s started a whole new life when we find him, and it’s cool. Things don’t stay that way, of course."
