Briefly: For those who might not know, while Mark Ruffalo voiced The Incredible Hulk when he delivered his single line mocking Loki in The Avengers, the rest of the roaring, grunting and other various sounds made by the big green hero were brought to life by television's Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno. While appearing at WonderCon over the weekend, Nuke the Fridge (via Digital Spy) revealed that Ferrigno confirmed his return to voice Hulk again for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We're betting Hulk's dialogue will be very limited again, but his role should be pivotal, and we've already seen him fighting with Black Widow and Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor in the cool concept art revealed recently. Stay tuned for more. »

Some actors find one role that follow them round forever. Some actors hate it and do everything in their power to shake of the type-casting, whilst others fully embrace the role and have successful careers off of it. Lou Ferrigno slots into the latter group with him confirming that he will be playing Hulk again in Avengers: The Age Of Ultron.
Ferrigno first played the role in 1977 during television series The Incredible Hulk, and has gone on to voice the creature in most of the recent movie adaptations. Since his portrayal it has been hard to get another actor to stick to the role for more than one film with Eric Bana and Edward Norton both passing on further adventures.
Mark Ruffalo fans need not worry though as Ferrigno is on vocal duties only, well roaring duties only. This news shouldn’t come as a surprise as the actor provided »

Long-time Hulk actor/voice artist Lou Ferrigno has confirmed that he'll be back to voice the green giant again in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Don't worry, though, Hulk won't be attempting to rival Tony Stark in the blabbermouth stakes – Ferrigno is onboard to provide Hulk's signature ground-shaking roars. Ferrigno previously played Hulk on screen in two TV shows called The Incredible Hulk (one in the '70s, the other in the '90s), plus numerous standalone movies including The Death Of The Incredible Hulk. He also voiced...

Thanks to his work on 82 episodes of the Incredible Hulk television series that ran in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Lou Ferrigno has long been associated with the giant green monster from Marvel Comics. In recognition of this fact, Marvel Studios has twice hired the former bodybuilder to reprise his role as Hulk and voice him in their live-action movies, and he'll be doing it a third time next year. The website Nuke The Fridge caught up with Ferigno at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA this past weekend, and got confirmation that he will be back to do the voice of Hulk in Joss Whedon's upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thus far, Ferrigno's work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been pretty limiting, as he has only actually said four words. There was "Hulk Smash" in Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk: And then his "Puny God »

Lou Ferrigno has confirmed that he’s set to return to the role of The Incredible Hulk, with Nuke the Fridge reporting that the bodybuilder and star of the classic 1970s TV series will once again lend his voice to the Green Goliath for 2015′s hotly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron.
With Marvel chief Kevin Feige promising plenty of Hulk action in the Joss Whedon-helmed sequel, perhaps Ferrigno will get to deliver more than the single line we gotfrom the character during his show-stealing turn in The Avengers?

Mark Ruffalo might have portrayed Bruce Banner in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, but when his character transformed into the Hulk, those roars and other sounds you heard coming from the Green Goliath were uttered by none other than Lou Ferrigno, who played the iconic character in the 1970s The Incredible Hulk TV series. Nuke the Fridge caught up with Lou Ferrigno at WonderCon over the weekend, where the iconic body builder confirmed that he will return to voice Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In Marvel's The Avengers, Hulk only had one line of actual dialogue ("Puny God") which was delivered by Mark Ruffalo himself. Of course, since there is little to no information we have about the story for this Marvel Phase Two sequel, it isn't known if we will see more of Hulk, or if Bruce Banner well utilize most of the character's screen time. We've already seen »
In the first Avengers movie The Hulk only actually utters one decipherable line of dialogue to a defeated Loki: "Puny God". That line was provided by the actor who played Bruce Banner/Hulk, Mark Ruffalo -- But the various roars and grunts made by the character were courtesy of none other than the original Hulk (in the tv show which ran from 1977-1882), Lou Ferrigno. Now, while at WonderCon, Ferrigo confirmed to Nuke The Fridge that "Yes, he will be doing the voice over work for The Hulk" in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The Marvel sequel is set to hit theaters on May 1, 2015. »
Having just recently joined the ranks of Twitter, Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr. has delivered the first official photo from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring the actor and executive producer Jeremy Latcham. While there's not much to the actual photo, perhaps Downey will be following in the footsteps of Dwayne Johnson on the Hercules set and bring us images from time to time? In other "Avengers" news, Nuke the Fridge has confirmed with former "The Incredible Hulk" Lou Ferrigno that he will be returning to voice the big green guy in the 2015 release.

Director Vlad Yudin's polished documentary follows seven top competitors as they muscle up for bodybuilding's crowning glory - the annual Mr Olympia contest. Among the hard-bodied attractions are the barely-disguised enmity between onetime pro basketball hopeful Phil Heath and the from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks bruiser Kai Greene. Crossover celebs Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno and Michael Jai White voice their opinion in a doc narrated by Mickey Rourke. »
A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

This year is an incredibly busy one for Marvel and as a result it’s a great time to be either a geek or film fan, as 2014 will see the release of four different Marvel productions on the big screen (not to mention a whole host of television projects). We have already caught up with Steve Rogers in the excellent Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next month we will be travelling back to the seventies to prevent a cataclysmic future in X-men: Days Of Future Past.
This week UK theatres has seen the highly anticipated return of our favourite web-slinger in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-man 2 and to celebrate the release, Thn will count down the top five cameos made by the man who started it all…I am of course referring to the creative genius and superhero godfather that is Stan Lee.
It’s now a treat »

Thunderstorms and tornado warnings were no match for the heroes and their rabid fans who came out to the Mx Movie Theater Thursday night. To kick off this weekend’s Wizard World convention held at America’s Center in downtown St. Louis, a red-carpet event was held for Marvel’s next superhero blockbuster – Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And it wouldn’t be a red carpet without a big star.
Fans lined-up to take photos of former Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno. For five seasons, Ferrigno was mean and green as the title character in The Incredible Hulk. Even though the show aired from 1978 -1982 on CBS, the show and its star continue to garner new fans both young and old year after year as the popularity of comic-books exponentially soar. Ferrigno posed for photos and even struck a menacing iconic pose or two. To show that he wasn’t just a muscular brute, »

Nothing can be bigger than Hercules.
Then again, nothing can be bigger than Dwayne Johnson.
Johnson arrived early at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to speak to a small handful of journalists about the revealing of his “Hercules” trailer.
Latino-Review was present at this conversation. We’ve discussed many details about “Hercules” movie. And we even got into other topics about a possible superhero movie, G.I. Joe movie and San Andreas film.
“Hercules” will be in theaters on July 25.
Read the full transcript below.
Question: I’m very curious about the balance between playing it real versus fantasy. Is it like 300 exaggerations?
Dwayne Johnson: Well, there had been a few iterations in the past of Hercules. The idea was to take the spirit of the graphic novel, which we liked, and then create a script and a story based on that that still gave a very unique twist on the story of Hercules. »

Damn, Lou Ferrigno is still freakin' huge and ripped! It looks like he could easily tear Chris Hemsworth in half. This fun photo of Stan Lee breaking up a fight between Hemsworth's Thor and Ferrigno's Hulk comes from Wizard Con in Sacramento, CA. I personally think Stan should just let them go at it. I would love to see this fight! »
