When MTV caught up with Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana at the Sundance Film Festival, where they premiered Infinitely Polar Bear, the actors talked reprising their respective roles in The Avengers and Avatar sequels. "I would say that it's better, it's cooler, it's more awesomer," Ruffalo said of the Age of Ultron script. "It's a little bit darker, but also really has Joss Whedon's incredibly, witty and sly sense of humor." Whether the Incredible Hulk will get any more great moments in the sequel, the assures that "[Bruce Banner] gets to do such great stuff!" 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 Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader. The anticipated film is set to release on May 1, 2015.

More Hulk. Sounds good to me!

As long as it doesn't have that "cartoony" and feel of a television show, I'll be happy. I loved Avengers but my biggest problem with it was the overall feel of it, a lot of the dialogue sounded extremely cheesy, and it looked like a tv show.

'Banner gets to do such great stuff'? hmmmm.... as long as they don't make him look like ben 10. too much control isn't what i want.
thewonderer - 1/19/2014, 10:44 AM
If anyone thinks there will be great stuff for anyone but RDJ/Iron Man in this, they will be sadly mistaken.
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 10:44 AM

Hulk stole the show in the Avengers, I expect him to do it again in the sequel. Can't wait!!
soforizo - 1/19/2014, 10:45 AM
Cool to watch first time around, least replay value by far of all Phase One movies.
MexicanChinman - 1/19/2014, 10:47 AM
Just bring back some of the people from The Incredible Hulk, so at least that movie feels like it is in continuity with the rest of MCU.

Awesome to see more about a movie that is actually coming out in the next two years.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/19/2014, 10:47 AM
Zoe's reaction to Ruffalo confirming he read the script haha
seyrie - 1/19/2014, 10:48 AM
@thewondere..you mean like how Hulk pretty much stole the show in the first one? Loki gouging out eyes? Widows conversation with Loki etc..

lol..can u ever just put your biases aside?..damn
soforizo - 1/19/2014, 10:49 AM
I wish they had brought the Leader, it just doesn't make sense that he would be totally silent the rest of the MCU timeline post-TIH.
Jollem - 1/19/2014, 10:49 AM
ruffalo was good. i really liked the incredible hulk, tho. i keep going back and forth between tih and the avengers as my favorite marvel studios flick
Ramiel - 1/19/2014, 10:49 AM
2015 will be forever known as the Age of Ultron.
ALegendaryPanda - 1/19/2014, 10:50 AM
Just as long as it doesn't get delayed by almost an ENTIRE YEAR then great!
McNyagano - 1/19/2014, 10:51 AM
"If anyone thinks there will be great stuff for anyone but RDJ/Iron Man in this, they will be sadly mistaken."

That's funny because Hulk had the most epic and scene stealing show in the Avengers...

RUFFALO!!!!!!!











TheFirstAvenger97 - 1/19/2014, 10:51 AM
Sounds awesome
chewish - 1/19/2014, 10:51 AM
@MexicanSuperman

Yeah, Marvel hasn't really done anything to bridge Hulk to the rest of the MCU. At least bring back Liv Tyler or put The Leader into the Defenders Netflix show.

BREAKING: Marvel just announced Avengers: Age of Ultron has been pushed back to June 2016!

Just one of the many headlines you will never see happen. ;)
Interestein - 1/19/2014, 10:53 AM
The only bad thing about the first was its cinematography, and we got a new one so this could be perfect.
ManCalledSting - 1/19/2014, 10:54 AM
Cool, hopefully it's not as comical as the last. Ultron is a badass, but Brainiac would assimilate him.
ezio619 - 1/19/2014, 10:54 AM
i really liked ruffalo as banner , whedon has said it is darker and there is more of a science fiction element to it with Ultron being in da house and imexcited for that
Comedian03 - 1/19/2014, 10:54 AM
@Fangz
I remember reading that too, it got my hopes up lol I think cinematographer might be the term? I don't know. But either way I hope it's an improvement because that's what really bugged me about the Avengers, tbh it made the whole movie feel like one big disappointment, combine that with the cheesy dialogue, Cap's costume, and I just couldn't take the movie seriously.
chewish - 1/19/2014, 10:54 AM
And to whoever's saying that only RDJ gets good scenes: shut the frick up....Hulk was a BEAST in Avengers
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/19/2014, 10:55 AM
Now that Supes/Bats has been pushed, this is the only movie I can look forward to. Don't giva shit about Star Wars Episode VII: Return of the Milking
marvel72 - 1/19/2014, 10:55 AM

"If anyone thinks there will be great stuff for anyone but RDJ/Iron Man in this, they will be sadly mistaken."

If anyone that's a residual Nolanite thinks that Nolan will do another CBM, they are sadly mistaken.
ezio619 - 1/19/2014, 10:55 AM
Interestein-yeah ben davis,i havent seen any of the guys work but will soon since he is also the cinematogrpaher for guardians of the galaxy
MrMartinMarvel - 1/19/2014, 10:57 AM
@Wonderbread I swear to God you get dumber with every passing minute.

ezio619 - 1/19/2014, 10:59 AM
feige has said that there are atleast 15 moments in the film that will have fans going crazy,i hope so
SageMode - 1/19/2014, 10:59 AM
Ruffalo brought charisma and a likability to Banner's character. And after pretty much stealing the show, the Hulk deserves a sequel. And if so, they should use the INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK storyarc as a reference, especially to steer the Hulk's character away from the usual "fugitive on the run" staple that he's stigmatized with.
TheRealistStarLord - 1/19/2014, 10:59 AM
Mark Ruffalo = THE BEST BRUCE BANNER/HULK EVER!!!
SageMode - 1/19/2014, 11:01 AM
Norton was boring as hell in TIH. he brought no life in his portrayal. In fact, the ones that did was Tim Roth and William Hurt. Liv Tyler sucked as Betty Ross
ezio619 - 1/19/2014, 11:01 AM
Blackjack-feige has said that he likes having two movies a year with a known character and unknown characters, like we get cap and guardians this year and avengers 2 and ant ma next year, so since that may be the pattern, my predicted phase 3 films are Thor 3, Dr Strange, Black panther and avengers 3
