There has been speculation of who might not be coming back for the Avengers 2 movie. Given how expensive the movies are going to get and the fact that Bruce Banner has been played by three actors in three movies. Mark Ruffalo laid the worries to rest with a recent interview:
Moviefone: Are you back for “Avengers 2?” There’s been a lot of talk about the salary negotiations.
Mark Ruffalo: I assume so. I haven’t been let go yet.
Are you definitely signed on for it?
Oh, yeah. I’m signed for — oh my gosh — six movies altogether. Five now [after “The Avengers”].
So, all this speculation about recasting Thor and The Hulk is just that, speculation?
That I know of. I haven’t caught wind of any of that. I was surprised to hear it, because I don’t even think anyone’s really started negotiating yet.
So there’s no reason to panic?
No. [Laughs] Maybe people should panic, but I don’t see a reason to panic.
