Ever since the Avengers have been casted for their upcoming movie, I've heard positive feedback on just about everyone... Except him. Not that I'm defending him, but is there anybody out there that actually likes him for the part? If so, why?
Edward Norton wasn't anything special. Really, he was just filler between action scenes. Ruffalo is a great actor.
This is true but Norton personified how a small, feeble, man such as himself can turn into this massive green hulk of a monster. That's one of the reason's I liked him as Banner. I do think Ruffalo is a great actor and will do an outstanding job but he's of average height and weight (I think..) which makes it seem less special.
He's just got the bad luck of following a fan favorite actor. Even if he pulled off an oscar worthy portrayal some people will still bitch because Norton isn't Banner. I'm not saying whether he'll be good or bad because I like my opinions to be y'know informed and at this point we haven't seen enough of Ruffalo as Banner to know anything
