Mark Ruffalo Will Be Bruce Banner


A few weeks back we reported that Edward Norton will not play Bruce Banner, the Hulk's alter ego, in the upcoming Avengers movie. Now we've heard Norton has been replaced with Mark Ruffalo, probably one of the best working actors in the business.

I lament the passing of Norton, but one could do far worse than Ruffalo. While not an "action guy," he does have the acting chops to pull of any role. It's going to be hard for him to fail as Banner, and my faith in the character being in The Avengers has been restored.

Granted, a lot of his scenes will be filled by a screaming, massive, green version of himself, but surely Banner will play a pivotal part in the film during some of the less intense moments.

Ruffalo was last seen in Shutter Island and The Kids Are All Right, which we in The Basement have yet to watch.
