"Yeah, because I know what it is now," responded Mark Ruffalo when Total Film asked if he was excited to come back for Avengers: Age of Ultron. "I know the team, I have come to really enjoy these people and know them, and I'm so happy to see them have so much success. And I really love Joss Whedon. I really love working with him. He always gives me something that's a surprise to me. And so, yeah, it's been really nice coming back. It's also nerve-wracking because it did so well and people expect so much. You're balancing a lot in it, there's a lot of characters and a lot of story, and you're trying to figure out your work inside of it." After explaining how he'll have a bigger, complex role in the 2015 Marvel sequel, Ruffalo talked working on the Incredible Hulk with visual effects guru Andy Serkis. "[It has been] great, I love him," he said. "We met on 13 Going on 30, and he's created a place that's so actor-friendly and puts the actor front and centre of that technology, and has demystified it, and made it a comfortable place - although we may never get comfortable in those leotards. The technology is actually at a place where it's almost in real time for the most part so it's a lot like digital pupperty."
Mark Ruffalo was then asked if Marvel has slapped his wrists for his Twitter/Instagram updates from the Avengers: Age of Ultron set. "All the time!" he replied, laughing. "I'm the green sheep of the Marvel family. But I think they're starting to catch on - I think all of us are starting to catch on- that you can't hurt a movie by doing that stuff. You really can't. It just makes people buy into it more. It makes them part of it, they're invested in it. It's not that precious for God's sake." Speaking of Ruffalo's social media updates, a Twitter user recently asked the Bruce Banner/Hulk actor if fans can expect a scene in Age of Ultron similar to the smashing "Puny God" sequence. "Let me put it to you this way," Ruffalo replied, "There is a Hulk surprise that is equally delightful as when he smashed the bejesus out of Loki." Furthermore, Mark Ruffalo described to another Twitter user what a typical day is like on the Avengers: Age of Ultron set. "Well a typical day always begins in the make up chair. Where fortification's taken which constitutes a little nap and face message," he started. "Afterwards we are a coaxed into our costumes and out of our trailers, which is usually a hardship for the coaxer. Then we assemble on set and do a rehearsal which at some point or another ends up in Thor getting completely fed up with us mortals. Then we repeat that many times over the course of the day interspersed with camera moves, pee breaks, coffee, lunch, and make up." What do you think?
