Ruffalo believed he was the “wrong guy” to play the role.
Actor Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has said that playing the character is "humiliating". "I've done so much motion capture," the actor said, describing the process which turns him into the green superhero, "I have to wear what I call the man-cancelling suit."
He added: "It was so humiliating, and all the actors, whenever I walked on set, would just start laughing at me because they were in their cool superhero costumes and I'm wearing these ridiculous pajamas that made me look like a Chinese checkerboard."
He also said he was hesitant to take on the role initially; Eric Bana and Edward Norton have earlier played the Hulk. Ruffalo said he believed he was the "wrong guy" to play the role.
