Ever since the Avengers have been casted for their upcoming movie, I've heard positive feedback on just about everyone... Except him. Not that I'm defending him, but is there anybody out there that actually likes him for the part? If so, why?

He seems like a perfect Banner, I'm sure he will resemble Bixby.

seems fine to me, although I wish they could have found away to stick with Edward Norton

I like Ruffalo, he's a good actor and I'll think he'll do fine.

People are just peeved about Norton but think about when he was cast, people weren't entirely sold either.

Edward Norton wasn't anything special. Really, he was just filler between action scenes. Ruffalo is a great actor.

This is true but Norton personified how a small, feeble, man such as himself can turn into this massive green hulk of a monster. That's one of the reason's I liked him as Banner. I do think Ruffalo is a great actor and will do an outstanding job but he's of average height and weight (I think..) which makes it seem less special.

@ArturoCalaKayVee: Edward Norton is almost six foot and his build was impressive for a geeky scientist. I think people just have an issue with Ruffalo because he has the face only a mother of five could love.

@sesquipedalophobe: WOW, really? I had no idea! Haha. Then I change most of my views on the constant Hulk cast changes.

He's just got the bad luck of following a fan favorite actor. Even if he pulled off an oscar worthy portrayal some people will still bitch because Norton isn't Banner. I'm not saying whether he'll be good or bad because I like my opinions to be y'know informed and at this point we haven't seen enough of Ruffalo as Banner to know anything

I'm hesitant. I've never seen any of his movies and his appearance as Banner seems a little off. I'll wait to see how it turns out, though.

I'm at the point with Hulk in movies to where I don't care. Once he's green in the flicks it's all "ARRRGGHHH" "RAAAAAAAA." However I'm sure Ruffalo will do something cool with the character if he was given an inch of room to.

I have crushed on Norton since I was like 15. So I don't want no Mark Ruffalo when I should be having Eddie Norton.

Norton was good and the only reason i would like to see Norton in avengers is so they don't change Hulks too often, but Ruffalo is a good choice, he is about the same height of comic Bruce and he defenitly has the looks.

Ruffalo's Banner > the rest

He did great and i hope he gets a solo movie. He deserves it imo!
