Mark Ruffalo might not portray the motion-captured Hulk in The Avengers Actor and stuntman Brandon Molale sent out an intriguing tweet yesterday, indicating he auditioned to portray the motion-captured Hulk in The Avengers. Take a look at his tweet below:

"My life: Just auditioned to play the Hulk (motion capture) in the new Avengers movie. Pretty damn cool job!"

The news contradicts a report from September where Mark Ruffalo revealed he would not only portray Bruce Banner, but the motion-captured Hulk component of his character as well. Here is Mark Ruffalo's statement from September:

"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."

It seems that plan for Mark Ruffalo to put on the CGI suit has been scrapped. It is possible that Brandon Molale could be playing the CGI Hulk's stunt double for all the big action set pieces, with Mark Ruffalo also performing as the CGI version of the Hulk.

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012.
