Mark Ruffalo portrays the role of Bruce Banner, a bright scientist who can transform into the Hulk due to excessive gamma radiation exposure.

Hulk, often known as 'Bruce Banner' or 'The Green Monster', made nine film appearances, including 'Captain Marvel', 'Infinity War', 'Endgame', and 'Thor: Ragnarok'. Although, he only made a fleeting appearance in 'Captain Marvel' mid-credits scene.

Mark Ruffalo is serene and thoughtful as Bruce Banner, in contrast to the other guy who is enraged and would destroy anything that stands in his way. American comic book creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the Incredible Hulk for Marvel Comics. The Incredible Hulk debuted in May 1962 as a gigantic, muscle-bound antihero.

In Marvel's 'The Incredible Hulk', Edward Norton portrayed the Hulk; however, after a falling out with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Norton was replaced by Mark Ruffalo. As a character, the Hulk is renowned for its enormous size and strength. Some claim that the character doesn't require oxygen even in severe weather.

The character of Banner is portrayed as a brilliant physicist who, following a disastrous attempt to use gamma radiation for a super-soldier program, can change into a big, muscular monster with green skin if his heart rate rises to 200 beats a minute or when in imminent danger.

As time passes, Banner exhibits a growing capacity for mastering the metamorphosis, joining the Avengers as one of their original members. As of 2022, Banner has made nine film appearances after debuting in The Incredible Hulk (2008). Both spectators and critics have generally praised the character.
