Robert Downey Jr is the Godfather of all this: Mark Ruffalo
The actor who plays Hulk (a) Bruce Banner, in the Marvel Extended Cinematic Universe talks about his co-star
Mark Ruffalo is known for essaying the role of Dr Bruce Banner aka Hulk in the Avengers films. With the latest film in the franchise, Avengers: Infinity War set to hit the screens on April 27, the actor reveals his favourite part about being back with the Avengers.
"The best part is the talent, and the feeling that we’re in a collaboration where there’s a sense of fairness and everyone’s looking out for one another. Then there is Robert Downey Jr, and just being in his presence. He’s the godfather of all this. That model has carried on throughout these last ten years or even longer. And it’s constantly developed. There is an enormous amount of talent here in every department from all over the world. Then when I see the racial diversity that’s really honest and fully expressed, I think there’s hope for the world," he says.
When asked what audiences will love most about Avengers: Infinity War, he says, "I think they will love the scope of it and the fact that all of their favourites are in it. Everyone has their favourite character. And everyone has their favourite Marvel film and Marvel world. So to see all of them coming together will be really exciting for people. Then there is Thanos and the impossibly high stakes and risks for the Avengers and their allies."
The film, which brings together all the characters of the Marvel universe, has a star-studded cast that includes the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
