First Look: Hulk in 'The Avengers' Unveiled on Final Concept Art Poster

July 24, 2011

Hulk in The Avengers

While many have seen the teaser trailer for Marvel's The Avengers at the end of the credits of Captain America this weekend, the Hulk was nowhere to be found. However, it's time to change that, as Marvel has unveiled it's last collectible poster of Comic-Con 2011 to reveal a full-on concept art poster collecting all six of the Avengers together in what looks to be their first group photo. It's a fantastic reveal and is indeed our first look at Mark Ruffalo's Hulk in Avengers, plus an early look at what we can expect (look for the Helicarrier the background). Such an awesome concept art tease! Click on either image for higher res below.

not bad

Jericho on Jul 24, 2011


Does anybody know if this Hulk is the same as the one from 'the incredible hulk', or if they are just completly rebooting his story?

RhythmDave on Jul 24, 2011


It's the same hulk just different actor he should be on the run at the beginning or something. Tony

Tonyoung55 on Jul 24, 2011


 cool hope so, would like to think they never had to relaunch the whole character because of edward norton

RhythmDave on Jul 24, 2011


I have to said that is not bad at all.. want to see more anyway.. 

Sakyo on Jul 24, 2011


Kinda looks like Mark Ruffalo...which it should be considering they are doing motion capture of some sorts. But I kinda liked the Hulk they had in the Incredible Hulk better (even though I thought in some shots in the movie, his looks were inconsistent). This movie is going to be great regardless that teaser; post-credits Captain America, was amazing!

Ron on Jul 24, 2011


The Hulk kind of looks like George Lopez..

I prefer the Hulk from the Norton film. I'm not a big fan of the short hair.

Chris Amaya on Jul 24, 2011


I agree, I like the look of the last hulk film better..for some reason, he looks a bit old on this poster..

jah p on Jul 24, 2011


and a little bit too frankenstein-ish

Chris Amaya on Jul 25, 2011


And way too big.  The movies keep wanting to turn the Hulk into King Kong, which (IMHO) completely ruins the character.  Sure, he's supposed to be large, but not ridiculously large.

Una Dagger on Jul 25, 2011


The problem in my opinion is that we are still too used to Bill Bixby as David Banner... The Bruve banner / comic book Hulk is much different. Hulk in the comics could jump straight up directly into space and was able to defeat Superman in a cross over comic. The Hulk fromt the comics is absurdly massive. True to the comics, was actually closer to Ang Lee's version. But the folks in the seats couldn't get past their expectations. (IMHO).

Well, according to Marvel's website, the "green" Hulk stands 7'-8' tall and weighs between 1040lbs and 1400lbs. The reason for the size differences: the angrier he gets, the larger and more powerful he becomes. Yao Ming, a retired basketball player for the Houston Rockets, is 7'6" and had a listed weight of 310 lbs. Shaq was listed at 7'1" with a weight of 325 lbs. Even better yet, for those of you that remember the 80's WWF wrestler Andre the Giant, he was billed at 7'4", 475 lbs or The Big Show, billed at 7'1", 485 lbs. For those of you that think The Hulk is too big in the movies, what are you expecting? Lou Ferrigno to reprise his role at 6'5 290 lbs?

Hulk is supposed to be nude in this film.. sooo.. not sure if you really want to see more.

Herp on Jul 24, 2011


He seems to be wearing pants on this poster. Where did you get that he'll be nude in the movie? That's nonsense!

Moutchy on Jul 25, 2011


Mark Ruffalo tweeted it

Herp on Jul 25, 2011


Those purple pants cant stretch forever.

Rstonewall on Aug 14, 2011


Er...he was joking, responding to questions about the poster where Hulk's pants were obscured

Nicholas Cobraetti on Oct 7, 2011


the like the look of this hulk, its more like the original rather than the first two cgi that has been made

Ralph Cue on Jul 25, 2011


Anyone know the two characters behind Shaft on the far right of the panaromic Avengers photo? They guy is Phil Coulson, but I cant make out the woman.

AP on Jul 25, 2011


Cobie Smulders playing Maria Hill

grapefruit on Jul 25, 2011


oh look they've gone back to the original look - lol. 

Dom on Jul 25, 2011


Samuel L. Jackson the great director in this movies.The hulk is the very unexpected movie.!!!!!!!!!

quality movies on Jul 25, 2011


I love it! Looks more like Jack Kirby Hulk to me!

Thanos on Jul 27, 2011


  @All Above: You guys are all misguided and benighted. Blinded by uncontained excitement at the prospective Avenger Movie event, soon to be upon us with advent of the world also coming to an end in 2012. Look carefully again, suspend all your excitement, focus and ye shall see by using the Force that this Avenging Hulk is indeed.......Agent Smith.....   yes Sir, Agent Smith of the Matrix!!!!! Reincarnated by the Agency into the green unstoppable behemoth of green toxic mound known as the Hulk.            I now admittedly confess that i cannot contain my excitement.

Tommygun21 on Jul 30, 2011


I think they chose not to go with such a cut hulk who is good looking because he would overshadow chris hemsworth and cap. If they used either the 2003 or 2008 version both cap and thor would look like ant's next to hulk onscreen and it would make them less believable.

StanDarsh on Aug 4, 2011


enjoy the picture cause the movie will suck just like thor ironman and captain america  the writers at marvel all need to be giving pink slips  thanks marvel staff for destroying marvel for us and u who do they make these movies for my mom and idiots

Staticdb1 on Aug 25, 2011


I think you have Marvel confused with Geoff Johns...

Nicholas Cobraetti on Oct 7, 2011


it's called a period, here are a few you can use...

Anthony C on Dec 19, 2011


Marvel is not dc u jackass

James on Dec 29, 2011


Hulk is suppose to be bigger than the rest, Hulk is the strongest there is and in every pic he's the biggest minus Antman.

Chiball on Aug 29, 2011


Henry Pym and Janet Van Dyne??

Juno2 on Aug 31, 2011


Can't speak for anyone but myself but I think the new look (sucks).  I thiught Marvel nailed it with the last movie - this makes the hulk as others put it look like an ape...

al on Oct 10, 2011


Damn, That looks badass.

AHox on Oct 27, 2011


Anybody else notice that Hawkeye is holding a right-handed bow like a lefty? He looked right-handed to me in Thor...

Thomas Hunsaker on Dec 10, 2011



JackHowlett on Jan 27, 2012


Hulk looks like my granddad... lol.

Shane on Dec 13, 2011


I liked the Eric Banner Hulk more so than Norton.

Zopo on Dec 20, 2011


Am I the only one who noticed that Iron Man doesn't have the triangular chest piece last seen on the Mark VI armor in Iron Man 2? Does it mean that Stark's arc reactor won't be having the vibranium core that saved his life, opting to go back to the palladium core that nearly killed him? This doesn't make sense.  

Bogeyman78 on Dec 21, 2011


They should have kept Edward norton, mark ruffalo sucks as hulk and Thor is wak too switch him for wolverine

James on Dec 29, 2011


Sorry about that glitch in my comment. I much prefer the Hulk in the Norton movie. I thought they got the look just right. This looks a bit cartoonish and he looks terribly old here. The Norton Hulk was the right colour dark green and he looked as savage as Hulk is supposed to look. That being said, I'm still looking forward to The Avengers 🙂  

Progamus on Dec 30, 2011


Too bad Ruffalo can't hold his tongue long enough to stop insulting half the movie going fan base.  His arrogance will cost the ticket sales.

Melvin Kerner on Jan 6, 2012


I'm curious as to what you are referring to kind rebel

JackHowlett on Jan 27, 2012


what's going on with his mouth for cryn'out loud.How come nobody is revolted at this picture as i am....I mean they nailed it with the incredible hulk movie,WHY IN THE NAME OF GAMA BOMBS did they have to go and change his entire look????
