Mark Ruffalo signs six-movie deal to appear as 'Hulk'

Mark Ruffalo has signed a contract to appear as 'Hulk' in six films, including the recently released Avengers Assemble. The actor, who makes his first appearance as the character in the blockbuster, has signed on for five further films, which are likely to include a number of Avengers sequels and a stand alone Hulk movie.

Speaking to Collider, Ruffalo also revealed that he very much hoped to star in a solo Hulk film and how much he enjoyed making Avengers Assemble.

He said of this: "I was so impressed and blow away by how much [Joss Whedon] packs into this movie and how exciting it is and what a great ride it is, and how it just works on every level."

As well as Ruffalo, Avengers Assemble stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L Jackson. You can watch the trailer at the bottom of the page.

The film has so grossed over $180 million worldwide and topped the UK box office with takings of over £15.8 million last weekend.
