More Hulk talk with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It remains the central mystery of Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers.” How will The Incredible Hulk fit in to the mix when he has not had a proper introduction the way Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans have been introduced as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, respectively?

Oh, I hear what you are saying. Louis Leterrier’s “The Incredible Hulk” unveiled the character. But Ed Norton’s not back as Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo takes his place), and we have yet to see Hulk footage in any other Marvel material as the studio continues to market Whedon’s 2012 blockbuster.

Today, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke with the L.A. Times about the green monster, and shed a few details. It’s a tremendous read, which you can find HERE, and it opens up a world of possibilities for where Whedon can go with the character.

“It will be as different as ‘The Incredible Hulk was from Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’ in terms of its look and design, but it is Hulk,” Feige explained. “Hulk is Hulk. We’re not going to reinvent the wheel.”

As for the hero’s size, Feige said, “He’ll be about the same size he was in ‘The Incredible Hulk’ [which was about 9 feet tall] or maybe a little bit smaller. His muscles won’t be quite as cut. We figure he’s been the Hulk now for a few years and [his physique is changing]. … The most important thing is that face. As you can already see in that concept painting, it is — more than any Hulk that’s ever been done in live action — a Hulk that let’s you see the actor in there. You will be able to see Ruffalo in there.”

But how much screen time will Hulk get? And will he start “The Avengers” on the side of good or evil? That’s still to be determined, but we have time until “Avengers” launches the summer season in May 2012.

    my comments is they need to have someone else playing Bruce Banner besides Mark Ruffalo because hes not suitable for the role at all Kevin Fegie. My adivce is bring back Edward Norton back and Replace Ruffalo. The Hulk height should be 7″ 0 ” Feet and Have Green Hair and Eye brows.
