Dr. Bruce Banner (played by Mark Ruffalo) transforms into the Hulk twice in the film. The first time he transforms, the film purposefully alludes to the television series.

The second time, Banner transforms into the Hulk, is unorthodox, as he is able to trigger the change. This time, all the Avengers are gathered, and a giant ship approaches Banner. On cue, Banner transforms into the Hulk, saying his trick is that he's "always angry."


Instead of just CGI, in this new version of the Hulk, the actor playing Banner also portrayed the Hulk with the use of Avatar-style stop-action, stop-motion capture. The growling voice was a mixture of Lou Ferrigno and others (uncredited), but the Hulk's actual speaking lines were done by Ruffalo.
