Via ComicBookMovie, here’s a snippet from SFX’s interview with the director of the upcoming super-team flick. Here, he talks about the challenges of bringing Marvel’s biggest and most challenging hero to life on the big screen:
“QUESTION: This is Marvel’s third shot at bringing the Hulk to the big screen. What did you need to get right?
WHEDON: “So much. A Bruce Banner who’s not obsessed with his own problems. A Hulk who not only feels flesh and blood, but is clearly an extension of Banner himself and not just a CGI thing that roars. A Hulk who feels dangerous, who might actually hurt someone we care about, who belongs in a classic horror film. And much more. He’s the hardest character by far, and ended up being the most fun.”
QUESTION: What does Mark Ruffalo bring to the role of Bruce Banner?
WHEDON: “Mark is such a delightful mensch it’s stupid. His Banner is a bunch of contradictions: graceful and awkward, meek and confident, erudite and working class, funny and sad. And contradictions are what the Banner/Hulk dynamic are all about. Also, Mark kinda looks like the Hulk. So we got to build our Hulk from him.”
