New Look at The Hulk from THE AVENGERS Extended Trailer

     February 23, 2012


We’re inching closer towards the release of Marvel’s The Avengers and along the way, Marvel’s been dropping images, TV spots, and trailers from the film, with a couple of high-resolution images released a few days ago. While I think most would agree that the Super Bowl trailer was the best yet, many have been eager to get a really good look at the Hulk. Today, a clearer image of Angry Mark Ruffalo popped up via a screen grab from the extended trailer. Naturally, he looks a bit upset, but I think the CG here is done really well. The character was rendered using motion-capture so Hulk should have a pretty natural feel to him. Obviously the final word will come when we see him in extended sequences in the film, but this image is a good sign of things to come.

Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. JacksonThe Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th.

    Holy trapezius muscle, batman!

  • Strong Enough

    corny just like this movie is gonna be! good luck with your TV director avengers fans!

    • The Trae

      A lot of big time director started off on TV, which makes your statement irrelevant.

      • cloxlider

        he’s just jealous.

    • mattedscreen

      Steven Spielberg directed episodes of Columbo and a little TV movie thriller called DUEL… BEFORE he directed Jaws.

    • Jim

      Spielberg started out as a TV director. J.J. Abrams started out as a feature screenwriter but did his first directing for TV. Arthur Penn, John Frankenheimer, Franklin J. Schaffner and Sidney Lumet all started in TV, but for some reason I doubt those names resonate with you. The current training ground for feature directors seems to be rock videos and internet shorts. We’re supposed to be more impressed with that?

      Joss Whedon has directed Serenity and just before Avengers a little film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. His years of showrunning Buffy and Firefly shows that generated feverously devoted fans certainly aren’t going to hurt his sensibilities when it comes to directing actors or dealing with large projects, either.

      I’ve had misgivings about him directing this movie even though I’m a fan of the Firefly series. He’s made some big mistakes in his career, for sure (who hasn’t?). Everything I’m seeing from trailers is that this isn’t one of them. I’m thinking the way that Marvel has steered the movies leading to this one is a great match in tone and substance to Joss Whedon’s strengths.

      I agree Strong Enough.
      So far, from what I’ve seen, I don’t feel the suspense at all!
      Everything looks so effing technicolor glossy. Meh!
      And there is a strong, IMHO, sense of self awareness among the characters.
      They know that we know, so uh oh.

  • Mike

    I love it when they (not Collider specifically) say that there is a new official pic, when it’s only a snapshot of the SB trailer. I mean, I could have paused the video at that exact moment in the trailer, and said here’s a new “official” still from the movie.

  • T. Van

    I now understand why they didn’t want the Hulk to have too much muscle definition (with “too much” being a subjective assessment). They wanted him to truly look like a monster… and this still shot gives the impression that he’ll truly look like a savage monster.

    • Dogg

      His skin looked like tree bark that last flick he wa so freakishly ripped. I’m glad to see they’re dialing it back.

    Im glad they toned the hulk down a bit, he looks more realistic and less exaggerated. Reminds me of a cgi version of lou ferrigno’s hulk.
