Mark Ruffalo Will Mo-Cap The Hulk In ‘The Avengers’; Doesn’t Understand Technology

Shrek?

When mumbly actor Mark Ruffalo was hired to take over the Hulk reins from Edward Norton in Marvel Studio’s The Avengers, it was assumed he’d only appear as a drowsy-looking Bruce Banner. Now he’s let it slip that the Hulk will appear like he just woke from a catnap as well. Ruffalo tells Vulture:

“I’m really excited. No one’s ever played the Hulk exactly, they’ve always done CGI. They’re going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I’ll actually play the Hulk. That’ll be fun.”

Stop-motion capture? Is that like taking a photo?

This should be interesting to see. Ruffalo seems too laidback to pull off the Hulk’s rage, but I think he could surprise us. Then again, he’s never performed in such an effects-heavy film before, and has no experience acting against nothing. Unless, of course, you count Jennifer Aniston.
