Mark Ruffalo is your new Hulk

UPDATE: This has been announced via Marvel's massive panel late Saturday night.  Ruffalo made the trip to San Diego to join the rest of the AVENGERS crew, including the also now confirmed Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, on stage.  Thoughts?

There is shocked, and then there is whatever this feeling that I’m having while writing this is.

Apparently, the rumor of Mark Ruffalo being the main contender for the recently vacated role of Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Hulk, is more than just a rumor.  Prior to this year’s Comic Con, reports began rising that said an announcement may be coming in time for Marvel’s panel, and according to Deadline, even that is too long.

The outlet is reporting that a deal has been finalized, and that in the upcoming AVENGERS film, your new Hulk will be none other than Mark freaking Ruffalo.

Over the years, Marvel has had more than a tough time bringing the big green guy to the big screen, but with this news comes a completely new set of massively high expectations.  As much as I love both Eric Bana and Ed Norton, I think Mark Ruffalo is a fantastic actor, and actually fits the look and feel of the character far better than either of those two actors did.  I do think that the character is a viable big screen presence; there just hasn’t been an adaptation that’s really work.  Hopefully this choice can help change that.
