News: Mark Ruffalo next Hulk?

In a strange and unexpected turn of events, Deadline are reporting that Mark Ruffalo (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Zodiac, Shutter Island) is on the verge of signing on for the role of Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk in the upcoming film The Avengers (featuring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and more). The reports contradict earlier speculation by CHUD.com’s Devin Faraci that Joaquin Phoenix was offered the role – unless, of course, Phoenix turned it down. Which, considering Phoenix’ apparent insanity, may have actually happened. I’ve liked Ruffalo in past projects (he was great in Zodiac) so while this news comes as a surprise, it’s actually quite a pleasant one.

In Crazy Joaquin News, the documentary that chronicled his slide from acting and career-change to rapping is set for release September 10th. The doco was directed by Casey Affleck.
