During an event recently, actor Mark Ruffalo shared some details on his Incredible Hulk character in Joss Whedon‘s upcoming comic book epic, The Avengers.

Ruffalo offered up a cool little reveal about what was being planned for his part, saying “I’m really excited. No one’s ever played the Hulk exactly, they’ve always done CGI. They’re going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I’ll actually play the Hulk. That’ll be fun.”

In Ang Lee’s 2003 take, Hulk, with Eric Bana, and in Louis Leterrier’s 2008 film, The Incredible Hulk, with Edward Norton, the lead actors played Bruce Banner while Hulk was computer animated. But now, with technology constantly evolving, it should come as no surprise that they’ve decided to use motion-capture techniques with this new version of the giant green superhero.

In addition to Avatar, motion-capture has best been used in The Lord of the Rings and King Kong, where director Peter Jackson utilized the technology along with brilliant Andy Serkis performances to create some incredible characters. Robert Zemeckis has also been a large figure in motion-capture, using it for his fully animated films like The Polar Express, Beowulf, and A Christmas Carol.

Ruffalo went on to talk about his approach to the character and how he wants to portray him. “I really love the first TV version of it, the Bill Bixby one,” he explained. “I’m gonna shoot for that a little bit. He was an everyman in it. He’s always on the run and trying to find love. It’s really a sympathetic character, before he turns into the Hulk and fucks everything up.”

The Avengers is currently in pre-production with a May 4, 2012 release date set.
