While promoting The Avengers, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth played a game of charades. Can you figure out which movie Mark was acting out? Take a look below:
Mark Ruffalo will “never forget” the first day he walked onto the set of Avengers Assemble in his “little leotard”.
Mark admits the biggest challenge of the movie was wearing the unforgiving motion-capture costume that technicians used to transform him into the massive green monster.
“I’ll never forget the first day I walked on set in my little leotard,” Ruffalo told The Hollywood Reporter. “Immediately I saw half of the crew and cast start to giggle. But when I freaked out I was actually pretty scary.”
The 44-year-old has made no secret of his distaste for the outfit in the past, claiming he felt like an “a**hole” in the leotard. Mark had to slim down to play the green superhero and fit into the costume.
“I did a cleanse that was like hell. I lost 21 pounds and I’ve kept about 15 off. I quite like it – it’s good to be a little trimmer,” he previously revealed.
“I felt like such an a**hole wearing The Hulk’s little leotard, though. When they were designing it, I was like, ‘How about adding a codpiece? How about a** pads?’ It’s not very flattering.”
Just a heads up _ with a big I’m sorry – that updates are coming up today. Lots of pictures, videos, and news will being posted. Keep checking up!
Director Joss Whedon is putting the finishing touches on Marvel’s The Avengers, which kicks off the summer movie season May 4. While the ensemble features an entire team of superheroes, the filmmaker revealed that most of the story will be told through the perspective of Chris Evans’ Captain America character.
Here’s what he had to say below:
“I set out with a very simple problem: There is no reason for these people to be in the same movie. So that’s what my movie has to be about. So much of the movie takes place from Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird ass world. Everyone else has been living in it.”
Marvel’s The Avengers comes to theaters May 4th, 2012 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is directed by Joss Whedon. (Source)
Marvel has unleashed a new international Russian trailer for The Avengers, and it contains a bit more new footage. The trailer is completely in Russian but you still get a pretty good idea of what is going on. There’s no doubt that this film is going to be epic.
Recently elaborating on his career with the U.K.’s Independent, British actor Tom Hiddleston surely discussed his ‘God Of Mischief’ reprisal as ‘Loki’ in Marvel and Joss Whedon’s superhero phenomenon flick The Avengers. Take a look below at what Tom called a ‘surreal’ experience:
“There was one day when, as Loki, I was sat on some steps, staring at the Avengers in front of me. It would be quite odd just to look at a grouping that involves [such actors as] Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth. But the fact that they were dressed in the most outlandish hero costumes was bizarre! And I thought to myself, ‘This is the dizzy heights.’”

Director Louis Letterier’s heist-thriller Now You See Me is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated films of 2013. It’s got a stellar cast (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco and Melanie Laurent), an intriguing/adventurous premise, and magic! Lots and lots of magic. The story centers on a group of magicians who pull off bank heists during their death-defying acts, and the FBI squad tasked with catching them. Today we’ve got the first full synopsis and a promo poster for the pick from the American Film Market, which you can check out after the jump.
The film was written by Boaz Yakin (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) & Edward Ricourt, Josh Applebaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), and Ed Solomon (Men in Black). Now You See Me opens January 18th, 2013.
A longtime green advocate, things got personal for Mark Ruffalo when hydraulic fracturing or “hydrofracturing” began to disrupt his hometown in upstate New York’s Sullivan County. Ruffalo educated himself on the complex practice and has been using his fame to call attention to this destructive method of natural gas extraction. The A-list activist, who recently founded Water Defense, even landed himself on a U.S. terror watch list for organizing screenings of a documentary about natural gas drilling.
Ruffalo, who recently dialogued with Deepak Chopra, specifically seeks to fight gas companies’ positive spin about the destructive practice. Last November, he hosted a fracking awareness forum at the University of Albany, where he challenged their claim that the extraction method would bring much-needed work to low-income communities. “You don’t put everyone else in jeopardy just because its going to bring jobs,” he said on the local news, “you don’t bring your daughter to the red light district because you’re having hard times.”
