The original Hulk on screen shares his thoughts on all things Hulk, including providing the voice for The Hulk in The Avengers.

Lou Ferrigno the original Incredible Hulk, talked with COLLIDER at the New York Comic Con this weekend. He discussed his involvement with I Love You Man, Chuck and what it's like for him just being at the Comic Con. The portion of the interview that I know we are all interested in covered all things Hulk.

Here is the portion of the interview related to The Hulk...

I see you’re listed on The Avengers (upcoming adaptation). So you’re doing the voice of the Hulk (in the film)?

Yeah, I’ll be doing the voice (of The Hulk). I’m hoping to have a good part in the movie. I’m waiting to see the script, but right now, it’s still pending because they haven’t finished production yet.

Initially, what has (The Avengers director) Joss Whedon told you about the film?

I, I don’t know anything about it yet.

Oh, you haven’t talked to him at all?


What do you think about Mark Ruffalo (being cast) as The Hulk?

I think he’s a great actor. I think he’s a great choice. My only problem is that they keep changing (the actor playing The Hulk’s alter-ego) David Banner. I don’t know the situation with Eric Bana because maybe he had a one-picture deal, but I think Mark (Ruffalo) is a wonderful actor and I think he’ll be, he’ll be a great David Banner.

What did you think of Eric (Bana) and Edward Norton (in the previous incarnations of The Hulk)?

They were good. I mean, Edward Norton, I loved because he was, he’s close to (TV’s original David Banner) Bill Bixby. Eric Bana was the first one that came with the first film (directed by Ang Lee) and he, and he’s a fine actor, too. They’re all different and it’ll be interesting to see how Mark pulls it off, because Mark is deep. You know, like he did Shutter Island? He’s got a deep quality about him. He’s got a sensitive side and I think that’s gonna come out of him.

Why do you think the first two didn’t work as successfully as people had hoped?

Because it’s not human and you can’t connect with the Hulk because it’s CGI. It needs to be more emotional. It’s very hard with CGI.
