London: Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo said he is thrilled to be playing `The Incredible Hulk` in upcoming ensemble superhero movie "The Avengers".
The actor says it was always his fascination to play Bruce Banner and his alter ego `The Incredible Hulk`, reports celebrifi.com.
"I grew up loving the Hulk. He was by far my favourite comic book character, and I always used to watch the TV show, which was brilliant. You could see him struggling with the human aspect of what was happening," he said.
"I know some people don`t associate me with these really big productions. I generally prefer the rough and tumble of smaller filmmaking but this was such an opportunity," he added.
