The Incredible Hulk has become a fan-favorite of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite not having a solo film franchise beyond The Incredible Hulk almost ten years ago. Hulk no gets to share the spotlight with fellow Avenger Thor in Marvel's latest film, Thor: Ragnarok, and it's a Hulk that we've never seen before!
As Thor 3 trailers have already revealed, Thor runs into Hulk on a distant planet, the first time we've seen the Jade Giant since he flew off in a Quinjet at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. As Thor quickly discovers, Hulk has been in control of he and Banner's body for quite some time, and has literally taken on a life of his own. As a by product of that new status, Hulk is also a lot more verbose, which required a whole new level of vocal performance to pull off.
Up until now, every version of MCU Hulk has been voiced by Incredible Hulk '70s TV series icon, Lou Ferrigno; however, Ferrigno wasn't brought back for Thor: Ragnarok. So, who is the new voice Hulk? Marvel fans will be proud to know that it's Bruce Banner himself, actor Mark Ruffalo!
For Thor: Ragnarok, Ruffalo took on all aspects of his character, playing Bruce Banner while doing both the motion-capture and vocal performances as The Hulk. That means Thor: Ragnarok's Hulk is the most complete version of the character we've ever seen, and as stated in our official Thor: Ragnarok review, the difference really shows onscreen!
Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters on November 3rd. Other upcoming MCU movies include Black Panther on February 16, 2018, 2017, Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
