Interesting Highlights from the EW Avengers Issue
Mark Ruffalo on the HULK
“He’s the most – guy, but a total loose cannon,” says Mark Ruffalo of playing Dr. Bruce Banner/The Hulk, “No one wants to set him off except for Iron Man… who just wants to see him pop. It’s funny, there’s a really cool dynamic between Tony Stark and Banner. Banner actually enjoys it, and finds it really refreshing. They’re a lot alike in a strange way. They’re both these kind of scientists who are mavericks, kind of renegades. Banner, for all his mild-mannered mythology, he’s still the dude who was testing some pretty crazy s–t on himself, so he has that rebel streak in him.”
Jeremy Renner on Hawkeye
“[Hawkeye is] the only one who can really take down The Hulk with his tranq tip arrows,” says Renner, adding “…The only sort of thing I cling to is the relationship of past experiences with Scarlett’s character, with them both being human. ”
This is in reference to Hawkeye being the one Avenger who can take out the Hulk with special tranq tipped arrows. I guess the team as a whole is unsure about the Hulk being involved because, well, he’s the Hulk.
Chris Evans on the Cap
“It’s just about him trying to come to terms with the modern world,” Evans explains, “You’ve got to imagine, it’s enough of a shock to accept the fact that you’re in a completely different time, but everybody you know is dead. Everybody you cared about.. [E]verybody he went to battle with, all of his brothers in arms, they’re all dead. He’s just lonely. I think in the beginning it’s a fish out of water scene, and it’s tough. It’s a tough pill for him to swallow.”
Chris Hemsworth on Thor
“I think [Thor’s] motivation is much more of a personal one,” he says, “in the sense that it’s his brother that is stirring things up. Whereas everyone else, it’s some bad guy who they’ve gotta take down. It’s a different approach for me, or for Thor… I’ve been frustrated with my brothers at times, or family, but I’m the only one who is allowed to be angry at them. There’s a bit of that.”
