We needed to be sure that with all three films we pulled iconic moments that folks would acknowledge. So for The Unimaginable Hulk, it was the Culver College combat scene. We needed to make use of, if potential, the combat in Harlem. However the Culver one lends itself higher to the story, so we went there. I did joke early on, ‘If we are able to’t get Ruffalo again are we going to ask Norton?’ And I used to be instructed that Mark Ruffalo already agreed to do the present. He’s a really pretty human being, and he was nice. He got here in, had enjoyable, and you actually can’t get a greater Hulk than Mark Ruffalo”
