Mark Ruffalo has been rumored to be in the running for the role of Bruce Banner, which Norton fell out of recently in a spat with Marvel that went public. And while Norton had been the choice of David Meisel, the CEO who left the Marvel Studios in December, now according to The Wrap....

Negotiations continued fast and hard between agents for Mark Ruffalo and executives at Marvel, with the expectation on both sides that the actor would be confirmed to play "The Hulk" in upcoming Marvel movies, replacing Ed Norton, The Wrap has learned.

The Wrap continues...And the aim was to wrap up negotiations on Friday so Ruffalo could fly in from the east coast to join the cast of "The Avengers," movie that will be one of the crowning crowd-pleaser events at Comic-Con in San Diego.

While this seems to be obvious news, in 48 hours we'll know for sure as Marvel Studios' promotes THOR & Captain America films, at the San Diego Comic-Con.

And with Joss Whedon confirmed for the director’s chair, The Avengers stars Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), and Ruffalo apparently.

While production is expected to begin early next year, according to sources, Marvel is currently scouting film locations in New York City, with the Queens desired. And Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are set to unite on the big screen May 4, 2012.

I'm not upset I think he's a decent actor. I just don't understand why he can't open his eyes all the way. Some kind of disability?

Good news. Good actor and looks like Bill Bixby. Well be able to hold his own with the other actors, and has had a good track record. Glad to see he got cast, good replacement for Norton.

I thing that he will be ok as the Bruce Banner, if he would of played Bruce Banner in TIH no one would be saying anything about this, I think he will do a great job.
