‘The Avengers’ Going 3D with All Mo-Capped Incredible Hulk

Though we never really thought they’d allow a film as big as this to hit theaters without an option to see it in 3D, we now know for certain that The Avengers will be in 3D when it hits theaters on May 4th, 2012, thanks to Mark Ruffalo. The actor, who is replacing Edward Norton as Bruce Banner (aka The Incredible Hulk), confirmed to Vulture not only that the film would be in 3D, but also that he would actually be playing the Hulk through motion capture. He says, “I'm really excited. No one's ever played the Hulk exactly, they've always done CGI. They're going to do the 'Avatar' stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I'll actually play the Hulk. That'll be fun.”

The Incredible Hulk

Hate to break it to ya Mark, but Bill Bixby actually played the Hulk as an actor during the old TV show, so that’s not exactly correct. There may have even been some mo-cap used with the Ang Lee Hulk film too. Regardless, what Ruffalo meant (we think) is that they’re approaching this version of the Hulk with newer technology than what was available the last time we saw him on the screen. And that’s definitely a good thing.
A lot of fans criticized the way Hulk looked in Edward Norton’s movie from a couple years back, so hopefully an all mo-capped Hulk will look more convincing, even though he’ll probably have a freakishly green Ruffalo-like face that will either totally work or look completely corny. We’re hoping for the former.
What do you think? Will an all mo-capped Hulk work better than a CGI version?
