"Yeah, we're gonna go out there. We're all flying, we're flying from London. We're working. We're shooting. We're gonna stop and get on a plane and go to Comic Con together. It's gonna be amazing."
Although production is still under way, the actor teased that the fans might get their first glimpse at Avengers: Age of Ultron footage next month in San Diego.
"There might be some cool new Hulk, Hulk-o, Hulk-o-phobia, Hulk-o-phernalia. Hulk-a-phernalia!"
There has also been plenty of talk about Mark Ruffalo getting his own movie as Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk. Earlier this month, the actor revealed that Marvel is actually considering a stand-alone movie for Hulk. When asked about the prospects of a new Hulk adventure, the actor had this to say, revealing that he believes The Hulk is actually terrified of Bruce Banner.
"He's a tough nut to crack of all of them, I think. He's the one person who doesn't want to do the very thing that all of us are dying to see him do and he's the one person who doesn't want to be there, [laughs] and so it can get very maudlin, it could get very boring to watch the guy who's moping around who doesn't want to do the very thing that we're all dying to see him do. And so I think that's the tough part of cracking that nut. I think that's what's made it problematical in the past. But I do feel like we've gained some ground on this new version of him, which has - he's sort of turning to face himself, and I think the relationship between Banner and The Hulk as a conscious conflict, it could be really interesting. The one thing that I think The Hulk is terrified of is Banner, and that's never really been mined. And now with this new motion capture technology, we can do something really exciting with Hulk that we've never been able to do performance-wise that I am hoping when we're talking about doing a new version of this, that we're really talking about having a relationship between these two entities that is conscious of each other and in conflict with each other in a really cool, interesting way."
Before a Hulk-centric feature comes into play, though, the actor said he wants to see advancements in the motion capture technology, in terms of facial recognition.
"We're a little bit behind on the motion capture technology as far as facial recognition in real time. Now we have, when I put on my motion capture suit, I look in front of me and there's me as The Hulk. There's The Hulk. Every move I make, The Hulk's making it and so you have this immediate feedback like almost looking in a mirror, but instead of seeing myself, I see The Hulk ... But they haven't come up to speed on the facial recognition that way. They can capture the facial - the new technology is we can shoot the body recognition and the facial recognition at the same time, so now you can integrate performance, physical performance with the actual face and voice, but by the time we're ready to probably - if we do another Hulk - that technology will be in real time and once that happens, there'd be no limit to what you can do creatively as far as your physical being is concerned. I can play a freakin' parasite in the ass of a worm [laughs].
It's so exciting. There's no limit to where we can go. I hope to be a pioneer in this space with Andy Serkis. I worked a lot with him on this. I'm very excited by what he's doing. We are retraining the studio to see this as integral a part as the first unit. This is not second or third unit or motion capture unit. This is first unit. This is performance. It's completely driven by the actor and it has to be honored as much as anything else, so that's kind of where we're heading with this technology and it's very exciting."
