AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

CBR has an interview with Mark Ruffalo about “Age of Ultron,” including the actor’s thoughts on what makes the Hulk a great fit for the Avengers.

“I think why he works so well is because he is within the context of the Avengers. It’s hard to tell a story about a guy who doesn’t want to do the very thing that you want him to do, and you have two hours of that guy by himself trying not to do that. That’s just a tough nut to crack,” said Ruffalo. “But when you put that guy in a group of other people that are like him, that get him, that understand him, and you force him to be and to have to deal with those people in these different situations, then you get to see who that guy is. You get to see his charm, his personality, his sense of humor, what ticks him off, what he’s afraid of — all of these things, because we know people by how they interact with other people, in a lot of ways. So that was a stroke of genius. That’s a place where Banner really works well.

“I think it does work well there, and I do think there’s a future,” Ruffalo continued. “And I don’t think it’s one where it’s just Banner maybe by himself… I’m not sure. We did the origin story of Banner, unless we go way, way back — which we could do. I also think there’s some really cool, interesting terrain to explore between Banner and the Hulk, like really, and that struggle between the two of them, and the melding of the two of them. So like we get a little taste of it when Banner comes out of the Veronica battle, the Hulkbuster, and he wakes up in the rubble, and the Hulk, you almost see the Hulk has a little bit of Banner’s remorse, even before he turns into Banner. And where that seam is, there’s some interesting stuff in there that I think we could explore.”

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Downey Jr. discussed incoming “Avengers” directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

“I’m also a very kind of loyal person so sometimes there’s a new face and I’m like ‘Wait a minute,'” said Downey. “But the interesting thing is I’ve worked with Jon [Favreau] twice, I’ve worked with Joss [Whedon] twice, and I worked with Shane Black once — and I’d happily do it with any of those three folks again. He continued, “I really think the Russo Brothers are super sharp and I think they are worthy stewards of carrying it forward.”
