Ruffalo's Green Dreams

Back when I noted the official hiring of Mark Ruffalo to play Bruce Banner in Joss Whedon's Avengers feature, I mentioned that while no further solo Hulk flicks were on the radar, the prospects of one happening had suddenly improved thanks to the actor's multi-picture contract with Marvel.  Well, in a new interview with Empire mag, Ruffalo all but confirms this is indeed the plan:
"They set up several pictures over a couple of years and possibly there will be a Hulk movie. There'll probably be a couple more Avengers too, which would be fun."
There's more at Empire, including Ruffalo's view on the Shakespearean qualities of the part, and the impact that the Bill Bixby TV show had in his childhood. I have to say, while the way in which the Edward Norton-Marvel breakup went down was far from ideal, I do think that they could have done worse than choose someone like Ruffalo, based both on his talent and his enthusiasm (and thanks to mo-cap technology, he'll be the first actor to actually embody both sides of Hulk-Banner diad).
