Following IGN, /Film has posted their interview made at the roundtable back in June. This one also contain an audio file (listen it below, thanks to Collider). Once again, some teasing about Age of Ultron, so read at your own risk.
Question: So you got the script and you were noticing that the beginning has you in relationship with Scarlet’s character Black Widow. Were you like this is gonna’ be a very tough job.
Mark Ruffalo: Uh we don’t have a relation– What kind of relationship?
Question: We heard that maybe there was a closer relationship between the characters?
Mark Rufallo: (looks over to the Marvel staff sitting in on the interview) Did you tell him that? Oh yeah I’ll play along. Yeah, yeah. There’s a really important relationship between…. Um I was just happy that I was in the movie at all and any scenes that I got to be with her were a big bonus.
Question: It seems like the response to the Avengers, the way the Hulk was handled and the way that Bruce was handled, it feels like Marvel finally figured how that character—and you guys were finally able to make the definitive Hulk. This time around what is the balance between Banner and Hulk?
Mark Ruffalo: There’s more of him and I think Banner and Hulk have come to a detaunt. [LAUGHS] We left the last time with this idea that you know I’m always angry and, and therefore I have some control over it. But when you think you have control over [anger], you absolutely don’t. And so there’s still wrangling going on in there, there is a confrontation [LAUGHS] brewing between the Hulk consciousness and the Banner consciousness thatnI think we’re starting to head into right now.
Begin Again is available in DVD and Blu-Ray starting today, and Just Jared has shared this behind the scene clip.
In the clip, Mark and the crew talk about how they used New York City as a character in the film.
I love working in New York. I love how wild it is. It has a life of its own that if you’re trying to fight, it will kill you. But, if you can kind of go with the flow, magical things can happen. It’s a great place to fall in love and it’s a great backdrop for the story.
IGN has published an interview with Mark and Robert made at the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron in London, earlier this year. There’s a few teasing, minor spoilers, so be warned about it!
Q: I’m curious about this cool little house party that goes on in this movie. Are you there as the Hulk or as Banner?
Ruffalo: Banner. Indoors I have to be Banner. That’s kind of the rule. It’s like leave your shoes at the door. It’s like leave your Hulk at the door. Yeah, they don’t like him. Hulk still has a little bit of a ADHD kid thing going on. [Laughs]
Q: How much dialogue might Hulk have in the film? Cause in the first movie he has two amazing lines. ‘I’m always angry’ and ‘Puny God.’ Does he have anything like that in the sequel? Any one-liners?
Ruffalo: We’re sort of still working that out. He will. We’re just kind of trying to it figure out. There’s a couple of different places to do it, but he’s not going have a soliloquy. Not yet anyway. Joss has a couple of ideas of where to put things in.

As you can see, there’s no Hulk stand-alone in sight. But he will appear in a lot of the other films.
A batch of new Foxcatcher images have landed online this week (via EntertainThis) and I have them added to the gallery. Foxcatcher opens in theaters on November 14th and stars Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall, and Vanessa Redgrave.
Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, an eccentric millionaire who decided to host an Olympic Wrestling training camp on his grounds despite having no experience with the sport himself. The crux of the film revolves around du Pont’s relationship with Olympic Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and in particular du Pont’s mentorship of the younger brother Mark, who lived in the shadow of his more successful brother.
ILM President Lynwen Brennan teased fans about The Hulk’s storyline in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” during an interview with IGN.
Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) is responsible for creating CGI effects on many Marvel and Lucasfilm productions, but Brennan explained Mark Ruffalo’s character in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was their biggest challenge yet.
“As usual ILM does some of the harder work that isn’t out there in the trailers, so I can’t talk about much. But obviously the Hulk is in there, and he’s a really big creative challenge for us,” Brennan told IGN.
Brennan teased The Hulk has gone through an evolution in the second “Avengers” installment, and the studio wanted to reflect the hard work Ruffalo put in to creating the character.
“Getting that personality is very important to Joss [Whedon], and it’s very important that it’s driven by Mark [Ruffalo]’s performance,” she told IGN. “We’ve developed a new capture system, which we call Muse, which really captures the actor’s performance – it allows us to combine different takes as well. We’re using it on Warcraft, and we furthered the development on Avengers.”
It was announced this week that Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer would make its world-wide debut during this Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”. However, all those plans went up in a puff a smoke when the trailer (in low-quality form) was stolen and uploaded online for the world to see.
Now a perfectly legal and non-bootleg version is officially online, and you can see it below:
Anyway, Avengers: Age of Ultron is all-but-sure to be the biggest movie of 2015 and stars Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany. It is once again directed by Joss Whedon and will open in America on May 1st, 2015.
