Mark Ruffalo, the actor who will play both Bruce Banner and the Hulk (through motion-capture technology), has just tweeted that there is a possibility that the Hulk might be showing off his birthday suit in Marvel Studios' 2012 film The Avengers. Here is the exact tweet:



Now keep in mind that this tweet could be a joke as a response to the recent Avengers promo poster where the Hulk appears to be wearing no pants.

So what do you guys think? Do you believe that the Hulk will be doing more streaking than smashing in the upcoming movie? And if so, what do you think the purpose of him being naked might be? Leave your thoughts below!

I'm not excited about his GreenDing, unless Scarjo evens it out by being buck naked, I think ill have to try and ignore this

hehe sweet

Bull Crap! Knowing that it will be most likely PG13, they will go with him having something similar to abomination,, which works for that character, but not the Hulk... I really hope they decide to not screw with things and just keep his damn pants on

@VideoColor
Bruce Banner accidentally exposed himself to lethal gamma radiation and now he turns into a big green rampaging monster everytime he's angry...and the stretchy pants is the part that does not make sense? :P
killzonev2 - 6/15/2011, 8:43 PM
AWWWWW YYYEEEAAAAHHHH SHOW ME SOME HULK DING-DONG!!


gets me all hot and bothered
tjbpinkfloyd - 6/15/2011, 8:57 PM
It'll probably be from behind and like in The Ultimates. He hulks out big time and no pants fit
kevberg - 6/15/2011, 9:04 PM
Thats crap because in the poster he does have pants/shorts---look at the poster again.
l0rdleg0las - 6/15/2011, 9:06 PM
that would be wrong to have an elephant sized dick flopping around during a fight.
nuck82 - 6/15/2011, 9:10 PM
lol they had a big blue dong flopping around in watchmen, but yeh hes joking i bet, at most you might see bare ass but no green dong

Hulk may be wearing spandex like he will be in the upcoming animated series "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes".

Moakynubs - 6/15/2011, 9:20 PM
If Hulk is actually part of the team, and not just a mind controlled puppet who later turns against his controller and fights with the Avengers, you'd think that SHIELD would get him some really fancy stretchy pants of some sort.

Joss Whedon ain't making this for the kids, good job Joss, keep the news coming Ruffalo
darkslayer101 - 6/15/2011, 9:25 PM
well maybe one shot...but definitely not the entire movie
cyclopstb - 6/15/2011, 9:49 PM
No way. We already saw the Hulk naked in HULK(2003).
kingmonkeyman - 6/15/2011, 10:34 PM
I figure he would have transformed into the hulk enough times by now to know to wear spandex underoos. But seeing the Green Giant batting away Hawkeye's arrows with his dilly would be hilarious.
GL - 6/15/2011, 11:21 PM
Wow.. smh
patriautism - 6/15/2011, 11:28 PM
Isn't he naked in the poster that was just released?


Pretty sure he's naked there, as you can see his groin and all.
kevberg - 6/16/2011, 12:29 AM
@PATRIAUTISM

Actually look at the first lo res released pic of the licensing poster, then look at this.

On the one First posted when it was leaked, the part of Thor's cape at the Hulks groin is not a cape--its colored dark grey/ green. But in your shot its been colored Red to look like Thors cape. In that shot where Hawkeyes bow is near the groin, its actually the hulk has his Right knee up toward us.
Just under Thors cape and Caps arm you see a the Dark grey/brown/green pants and clear fabric wrinkles. If you look just below Hawkeye's bow where his hand is, you can see the dark olive green of the waist line of the hulks pants.

Now, look at the shot here..the Hulks left knee shows pants just above the calf ( just under the cape ) is still colored that color.


someone has manipulated the shot.

I don't know how to post a comparison shot, but there a distinct difference.


SOMETHING is amiss. Somebody altered this because they wouldn't Have a Naked Hulk on a licensing poster.
kevberg - 6/16/2011, 12:48 AM
Do a Search for " Avengers Licensing poster" look for the ones with the red wall behind the poster---the original leaked one.

Its Bullsh@t. the Hulks not naked in the poster.
Orphix - 6/16/2011, 1:32 AM
Hulk out - cock out?
patriautism - 6/16/2011, 1:33 AM
@kevberg I for sure see the changes in the Pictures that you are talking about..
There is a conspiracy here.
I think the more high def one is the original,
It looks like for the poster they moved hulk down a bit, Hawkeye up a bit and tried to make it appear more like pants, and hide Hulks groin.



If you notice the licensing poster has been cropped and the buildings changed, also the part on Thor's cape you mentioned just looks badly photoshopped in the poster. They also took the lightning out from behind Hulk. Like you suggested, I think they manipulated it to hide Hulks visible groin from the people at that event.

You can still barely see hulks pant leg in the high def one, there is a little grey spot with wrinkles just under thors cape. I'm pretty sure that is his pants.
Osiris - 6/16/2011, 2:39 AM
See Pants

PaulRom - 6/16/2011, 5:11 AM
He has to be joking. First hairy chested, now naked? -_-
marvel72 - 6/16/2011, 5:25 AM
i watched a bootleg copy of "hulk" years ago & just after he'd taken out the tanks.

there was a glitch on the disc it went all blocky & the hulk lost he's trousers & you get to see his big green ass for a brief couple of seconds.
comicbookjerk - 6/16/2011, 5:37 AM
Ruffalo Can Kiss my Ass~!
CarlXVIGarfield - 6/16/2011, 5:44 AM
Ang Lee wanted Hulk naked (no surprise there) but they couldn't make it work, trying to hide his green bits, it reminded too much of that scene in Austin Powers.
ThaMessenger07 - 6/16/2011, 5:49 AM
The Hulk was naked in the Ang Lee film. The Hulk has been nude MANY times in the main stream continuity. The Hulk is almost Always naked in the Ultimates! He will most likely be nude in the beginning and later on be given some new tights from Shield.

dahamma - 6/16/2011, 6:03 AM
@Elguason LOLOL i bet he would!

But you guys clearly Ruffalo is Joking.
BIGBMH - 6/16/2011, 6:13 AM
hoepfully they'll get him some stretchy briefs at some point

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: For the experiment to be a success, all of the body parts must be enlarged.

Inga: In other vords: his veins, his feet, his hands, his organs vould all have to be increased in size.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Exactly.

Inga: He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: That goes without saying.

Inga: Voof-Oh, sweet mystery of life at last I've found you! At last, I know the secret of it all!
kevberg - 6/16/2011, 6:32 AM
@partiautism

The Lo res one with the Red background is the REAL one. It was the FIRST shot that hit the net.
Therefore, the shot with the pants is correct.

For those saying it has nothing to do with the movie,...it obviously does, as the Hulk noticeably looks like Ruffalo.
Shieldofpower - 6/16/2011, 6:39 AM
Oh, please no.
GUNSMITH - 6/16/2011, 7:00 AM

IF HE WAS NAKED...



THIS PICTURE WOULD LOOK VERY VERY WRONG.
TheDetectiveComicRises - 6/16/2011, 7:25 AM
O Ohhh, looks like Dr. Manhatten from Watchmen lol! nah just joking but seriously I wish Edward Norton was playing Bruce again or I wish Marvel would have gotten Sam Rockwell as Nortons replacement, I mean I know he played a bad guy in IM 2 but he sort of resembles Norton.
EarOne - 6/16/2011, 7:26 AM
actually, if you wanna keep this more real Hulk DOES have to be naked when he hulks out. i just don't see any known existing stretchy spandex to stretch THAT big from the normal banner to the behemoth size that Hulk is. it's just one of em things that really doesn't add up, even for a comic book super hero world.

but, this can so EASILY fixed by having either SHIELD or Tony Stark to come up with some kind of new clothing material that WOULD make the necessary stretch to fit the big green lug. OR...how about Thor presenting an Asgardian materials that does have the super extra stretchability for the Hulk. maybe, the asgardians got it from the frost giants, or something. that could work really well, i think.

but, yeah...they gotta have that scene in there, where the Hulk just hulks out SOOOO big that his usual spandex or big pants just couldn't hold it anymore and he ends up naked, in the middle of a battle. THAT would be hilarious, and i know how Joss Whedon could make that scene really pays off. then, after awkward reactions from Cap, Tony and Thor, maybe either Black Widow or Hawkeye could deliver the punch line.
CrashTest - 6/16/2011, 7:29 AM
I could see them making him naked in a scene if they are following the Ultimates. Which with Sam L, and Robert D and they story so far they are close. But in the Ultimates there's that moment when Hulk is chasing Betty throw Vegas If im correct, might have been NY. But He's naked talking about how hes going to screw Betty brains out for [frick]ing with Banner. HAHA funny, funny shit.
