In 2012 when The Avengers burst onto the scene, Mark Ruffalo’s reprise of the Incredible Hulk certainly stole the show. Ruffalo drew his inspiration for the role by watching Bill Bixby’s portrayal in the original 1970’s television series – purple jeans and all! And believe it or not, the green goliath only has one line in the entire movie, which during the initial screenings, many fans missed due to the laughter as Hulk thrashes Loki about. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Hulk’s performance was that it was the third attempt in a decade to make the character work on the big screen.

Fun Fact: Edward Norton was originally set to reprise his role from The Incredible Hulk (2008) but negotiations between him and Marvel Studios broke down. Norton was replaced with Mark Ruffalo who had also been considered for the role in the prior movie.
