Expect More Hulk in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

More smashing? Yes, please!

There's a lot of reasons to love Joss Whedon's The Avengers and the Hulk is absolutely one of them. Every time the Green Goliath appeared, some seriously cheerworthy moments happened. Hulk's scenes were a big highlight in the team-up film, so it's exciting to hear he'll have even more screen time in Avengers: Age of Ultron. While talking with Total Film, actor Mark Ruffalo said his role is "even bigger than last time, and it's more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc." He also shared his thoughts on using motion capture. "I'm really tripping on the technology of this motion capture stuff… now I just completely embrace it and see it as this other exciting place we can go as performers."

Needless to say, we're pretty stoked to hear Hulk will have a more significant role in the sequel. Are you happy he'll receive more attention in the upcoming movie or would you rather see that focus go elsewhere?

Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon and is scheduled to open May 1, 2015.

Hulk vs Thor + Iron Man at the same time please!!!

Posted by GraniteSoldier

F*ck yes. I am pumped now. Ruffalo was an awesome Banner, even with the little screen time he got. I am pumped.

I thought the rumour was that Avengers 2 was going to set up the next Hulk movie, which will likely tie more into GotG in a Planet Hulk kind of idea.

@guardiandevil83: Just Hulk vs Thor for me. A 10 minute fight would be awesome!

If Hulk isn't strapped to a great big rocket at the end of this movie I will be unimpressed.

Hulk destroys the buildings and harms people = Hulk is cool.

Zod kills people = Superman allowed Zod to kill people.

Your complete lack of understanding for what Hulk is and why people were pissed about Man of Steel is baffling.

@superguy1591

I think that what everyone is trying to say is that Hulk is supposed to be an a$$hole to bystanders and buildings, Superman isn't.

Posted by DrThanos91

can anyone Hulkbuster fight!,I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes

Posted by that_one_guy_at_the_comic_shop

"Hulk will have a more significant role" really? i'm pretty sure the hulk did everything in avengers 1! he threw loki around , awoke ironman by yelling and beat that big flying alien!

Edited by Superguy1591

@dark_vengeance_: @daltonmunnal: @dagmar_merrill: @squalleon: Reread what I wrote. I said ZOD kills people and people complain that Superman shouldn't have allowed Zod to kill people. Even though Superman only killed Zod...and I'll leave this here for the rest of you dissenters....

Meh, I don't like Hulk

Could be good, but I really hope it isn't more ragdolling <main villain> and other comedic stuff. I like the idea of a Hulkbuster fight. Most of all, I'm hoping Banner gets some character development. Ruffalo did a great job with his performance first time around; I want to see more of it.

For all that... any word in Hawkeye? He's the one who suffered the most character-wise in Avengers, and he didn't even get Black Widow's importance in the plots of multiple other films.

Not sure how Superman got brought up but lol at the rustled jimmies.

Edited by frozenedge

Was hoping we'd get more Hawkeye in this movie, considering he barely did anything in the first movie but follow Loki around. Hopefully he'll be the wise-cracking, smart mouthed, lovable asshole that he is in the comics this time

Posted by CosmicOldGuy

@superguy1591 - I have that issue that you scanned, but from my perspective I believe it is not so much about killing Zod rather it is about the amount of destruction he laid down across the planet without concern about the people/earth. Superman's powers are not based on mindless rage as are the Hulk's. Superman protects the earth and is one of the few beings that can be everywhere when needed. I believe that fan's expected Superman to at least consider the impact that his powers bring rather than just "Clark-Smash" actions.

Was hoping we'd get more Hawkeye in this movie, considering he's the only Avengers who hasn't done much of anything. Hell Stark cracked more jokes then he did and Clint is supposed to be the smart mouthed asshole of the team

Thank you! This is something that's been bothering me the whole time about Hawkeye. I want Clint cracking jokes and where the heck are his names for everyone? It's cool that Hulk will get some love but poor Hawkeye has had no time developing as a member of the team other than being yanked into the big fight at the end. They need to show some of his growth as a member.

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

Meh, was hoping for more Hawkeye & Black Widow focus since neither has had nor seem likely to have a solo film.

I'm glad these replies happened. Now I don't have to go off on that comment.

Please let there be a Hulkbuster fight!

Posted by Cloakx14

i hope for to be a bit smart like he was in the comics. y'know the merge of hulk/Banner like he was in the incredible hulk.

Posted by NukeA6

So does this mean Hulk will have another movie soon? I mean Whedon knows the Hulk parts were some of the most exciting part of Avengers so why not go even further?

Posted by XxEdward_KenwayXx

I don't really like hulk in general. He's a plain dull and boring character. But he stole the show in the avengers, so I'm all good.

lol that would be something!

Posted by HexThis

I just hope he doesn't try to murder one of his teammates again. If I were the Black Widow I would've totally filed a complaint.

Do you even know what happened after that?

Posted by MrTummyTumms

@superguy1591: yeah it's pretty dumb when you think about it. The Hulk pretty much causes all kinds of trouble, but that's okay. Superman does it on the first day against a major threat and it's a big deal.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

F*ck.YES!

@squalleon: He stopped Zod and had him contained in a place where he had no powers. Zod tells him even if he stops him now, he'll find a way to escape his dimension and kill everyone in Superman's dimension. Superman says he has no choice, he has to kill Zod and the others.

MoS: Zod tells him that if he doesn't kill him, he'll kill everyone on the planet. The Difference? This was written by Byrne so he gets a pass, Zack doesn't (he sucks so he doesn't deserve it anyway). Did I miss something?

@extremis: Rolls eyes, I responded to them. You guys would write terrible movies. You have no idea how pacing works, you can't stop a fight in the middle just to have the hero fly somewhere else to fight in a dry, dead surrounding just because you guys want to feel morally superior.

@cosmicoldguy: What? Superman destroys things when he fights, that's what makes his fights interesting. He's not a martial artist, he's a brawler/boxer. He punches things into things. He didn't even cause 90% of the destruction, Zod and the World Engine did 80% of the damage. Military did the other 10% and Superman did a few.

Posted by Wardishy

I can dig it. Hulk was one of the best parts of The Avengers, and he's the biggest character not to have his own movie this phase, so it's only fair.

Posted by Skyfire

I'm ok with this. Hulk in Avengers was a pleasant surprise

Posted by Guardiandevil83

@iaconpoint: Sorry for the late response. But if he battles both, it will show his power..and, and, its freaking Hulk vs Thor + Iron Man!!

Well that's good news in my book!

You have no idea how pacing works,

Enlighten me

you can't stop a fight in the middle just to have the hero fly somewhere else to fight in a dry, dead surrounding

....

just because you guys want to feel morally superior.

Excuse me, who are you again?

After Superman killed Zod in that story, he went into a self-imposed exile, because he thought he didn't deserve to be earth's protector and didn't plan to return. Don't take pictures out of context.

@squalleon: And I said Snyder should've done more after the scene, but we're not arguing about that. We're arguing about killing people. Henry did the best with what he had, not his fault Snyder sucks. He tried to portray the agony Superman felt at the decision to kill Zod.

@extremis: Here's a tip, a villain is destroying Metropolis, Superman shows up and say "This ends now" and then he speed blitzes towards him...only to stop and say "Too many people around, let's move the fight elsewhere". Uh, first of all, why the F would the villain listen? Second, you put everyone at the edge of their seat with a cool line and now you want to stop half way? Horrid pacing.

And who am I? I'm the sexiest mofo on these boards.

This conversation begin with you comparing Hulk's rampage to Superman killing Zod. You don't find anything wrong with that? I mean at all!

What i bolded in your comment has got to be one of the funniest things i have ever read on someone trying to defend MOS. MOS could literally win an award for worst pacing to ever be in a movie. It simply has the worst pacing in cinema.

Also i don't try and get involved in the Sups hero conversation because MOS was a garbage movie because of bad writing not because of the destruction in MOS BUT Hulk is a character who is suppose to attack not ever thinking about the damage because of the fight or the amount of innocent people that die because of the fight he just fights whoever he has to fight without regard on whether he really protecting the world.
