Mark Ruffalo to replace Ed Norton in “The Avengers”

Pin it

The last bit of news from Comic-Con: the ever-charming Mark Ruffalo (shown here about to transform into an outraged green colossus) will replace the ever-controversial Edward Norton as the Incredible Hulk in the superhero crossover movie The Avengers (making him the third person to play the role in a decade, after Norton and Eric Bana). This revelation follows the news that geek icon Joss Whedon will direct. Norton’s great, but Ruffalo is a definite boon; this movie is looking promising.
