Mark Ruffalo Is The New Hulk

Mark Ruffalo will be the third face of Bruce Banner and the Hulk for Marvel's 'The Avengers,' he had this to say on taking on the part:
"It's like 'Hamlet' or 'Romeo and Juliet,' a new actor gets a crack at it every year," Ruffalo said with a chuckle. "But really it's all heady stuff. It's exciting to be here. It's great to be a part of all this."
During a round-table interview tonight at San Diego Comic-Con, Feige said of Ruffalo,
"Ruffalo is Joss Whedon's Banner. He is the Banner that is going to be in that [Bill] Bixby type, wants to help people and is somewhat ashamed of what he goes through but isn't as strong and angry in his Banner form as he is in his Hulk form, which is something we haven't really seen in the past films."

He continued, "Something like how he was portrayed in the Ultimates, a guy who just wants to be left alone and wear his glasses and do his science."

So it sounds like the future big screen Hulk will be an awful lot like his live-action small screen ancestor. "Absolutely. That's what it always goes back to," said Feige.
