Mark Ruffalo opens up about playing Hulk!
Actor Mark Ruffalo, in his recent interview with GQ, opened up about playing the character of Bruce Banner/Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) which is loved by everyone, saying that playing Hulk is humiliating as his co-stars often started to laugh whenever he enters the set in his “man-canceling suit” that made him look like Hulk on the big screens.
In his interview made, he made some revelations:
“I’ve done so much motion capture. I have to wear what I call the man-canceling suit, which is this really tight leotard that makes you look big where you want to look small and small where you want to look big.”
He further added:
“It was so humiliating, and all the actors, whenever I walked on set, would just start laughing at me because they were in their cool superhero costumes and I’m wearing these ridiculous pajamas that made me look like a Chinese checkerboard.”
He also reveals one incident when during the Avengers: Endgame shoot, Robert Downey Jr. told him:
“I have a lot of compassion for you. And I was like, ‘Why?’ He’s like, ‘Because I see how hard it is for you to stand around in that costume all day.”
He also talked about the future of his character saying:
“There’s nothing completely at a place where it’s a done deal. “There’s some talk of having Banner/Hulk show up in [the Disney Plus series] ‘She-Hulk.’ If we come up with something good, that would be really interesting. Right now that’s about it. That’s all there is on the table.”
