In 2003, Ruffalo starred in In The Cut, alongside Meg Ryan and then took a role the following year in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which starred Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet and Kirsten Dunst.

The actor slammed Universal in the process.
Mark Ruffalo is undoubtedly a fan favourite member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, bringing a sense of realism and relatability to his role as Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk. Ever since his debut in the role, there have been calls for him to get his own solo flick as the monstrous Avenger, but if recent comments are anything to go by, that's not something that will be happening any time soon.
Mark Ruffalo reprises his role as Hulk in upcoming film 'Thor: Ragnarok'
Though there is technically a solo Hulk film in the MCU with Edward Norton's take on the character in 'The Incredible Hulk', the movie came at a time before Ruffalo's signing up to the brand. Fans would prefer to forget about this addition to the universe and enjoy a brand new one, with Ruffalo front-and-centre.

Jeff Goldblum and Idris Elba join the ensemble cast on 'Thor: Ragnarok'
It looks like Thor might finally have met his match with the arrival of dark underworld queen Hela. The new trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' sees him lose his legendary hammer to her power, and face off against an unlikely opponent who is the last person he wants to fight.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Thor: Ragnarok
This Norse god never thought he'd be pitted against his most physically powerful ally, but when he finds himself all armoured-up in an arena against a very angry and ruthless Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), he knows that both their survival is unlikely. In fact, his own survival is unlikely now that he has no hammer.

Get ready for the likes of 'Everest', 'The Danish Girl' and 'Black Mass'.
With the Venice Film Festival kicking off this week, awards season is officially underway. Venice has been the launchpad for a number of films that have gone on to Oscar glory. Last year, the opening night film was Birdman, and the year before it was Gravity. So there are big hopes for this year's opener, the true-life thriller Everest, directed by Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormakur with an ensemble cast including Jake Gyllenhaal, Robin Wright, Emily Watson and Jason Clarke.

And anticipation is running even higher for a number of other movies. Venice is hosting the premiere of The Danish Girl, the true story of one of the world's first-known transgender women, played by Eddie Redmayne. Can he win back-to-back Oscars? This week's new poster and trailer are very promising.

Michael Rezendes is a dedicted reporter for the Boston Globe and part of their Spotlight Team; an investigative division focused on justice and whistle-blowing. When accusations of child sex abuse by members of the Catholic Church arise, he leads the team into their latest case, determined to uncover the truth about a morally questionable priest and his scandalous activities across six different parishes over the course of several decades. It is alleged that the church knew what was going on, but chose not to act and hold their reputation above the welfare of their children. Not only that, but past statements from attorneys don't appear to add up and a delicate battle ensues with the government and police all getting involved as the Boston Globe take on the church. There's a large team at the newspaper working on bringing this case into the open once and for all, and they refuse to let these atrocities be swept under the rug another time.

Love and family can be a difficult thing to manage. For Cam Stuart (Mark Ruffalo), it's especially hard, as he suffers from Bipolar disorder. His wife, Maggie (Zoe Saldana) is moving to New York to pursue her career, and the two work out a deal. Cam can't face the idea of living without his children, but also can't move with her, so he chooses to look after the children by himself.
What follows is the redemptive story, of how a man can face his demons, and prove himself to the people he loves the most. Written and directed by Maya Forbes in her directorial debut, 'Infinity Polar Bear' serves as the semi-biographical story of Forbes. The film went into principle photography on 9th April 2013 in Providence, Rhode Island, with J. J. Abrams and Bryan Burk serving as executive producers.
The film saw it's premiere at Sundance Film Festival on 18th January 2014, before opening at the Toronto International Film Festival on 10th September the same year. Following an appearance at the Los Angeles Film Festival on 14th June 2015, the film is set to be released in the US on 19th June 2015.
Marvel fans will love the action mayhem in this Avengers sequel, but everyone else will vividly feel the fatigue that has descended over this franchise. After the bright spark of originality in last summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, we're back to the same tired formula involving terrific actors battling for screen time in between gratuitous, brutal action sequences that are so digitally animated that they're technically cartoons.
The film opens in the middle of the action as Captain America (Chris Evans) leads Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner) to recapture an Asgardian sceptre. Tony then discovers that the sceptre could be useful for Ultron, his artificial intelligence project to create a global peacekeeping force. But this goes badly wrong as Ultron (James Spader) springs to life and decides instead to obliterate humanity to make space for his population of smart machines. So the team races from America to Africa, Korea and Eastern Europe, facing off against Ultron and his super-powered twin cohorts Pietro and Wanda (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen), who of course defect to the Avengers. They also get help from a human-computer entity called The Vision (Paul Bettany).
Yes, there are a lot of characters in this film, and writer-director Joss Whedon is exceptionally good at giving each of them something to do, both dramatically and in the thick of the action. These brief moments of humour and emotional depth are what make the movie enjoyable, giving the solid actors some meaty material to play with.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' stars Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo (who play Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner respectively) talk about relationships between not only the actors, but also their characters, particularly the romance between Black Widow and The Hulk, in a press interview.
Mark Ruffalo - Stars from Marvel's action movie took to the red carpet at the UK premiere of 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' which was held at the Westfield White City in London, United Kingdom - Tuesday 21st April 2015
Mark Ruffalo says he could play The Hulk in 'Infinity War' 1 or 2.
Mark Ruffalo has been talking up his chances of playing The Hulk again, saying that although Universal still own the rights to any standalone movie, he could still see Dr Bruce Banner turning up in "another character's movie" or in Avengers: Infinity War.
Mark Ruffalo says he is optimistic for the future of The Hulk
"That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue," he told Collider of the chance of a new standalone movie. "That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me."
