‘Infinity is about faces of anger’

Avengers star Mark Ruffalo said that his dual roles as Dr Bruce Banner and the Hulk in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War cleverly reflects the duality of anger.

“Our anger can open us to outrage, or anger can open us to do great things for people. Anger can be a positive motivating force,” said Ruffalo. The film is set to release on April 27.

In the film, Hulk joins Iron Man, The Black Widow, Thor and Black Panther to fight the villain Thanos. “Marvel is very clever to realise that the Hulk force can be used for positive but also for destructive (ends). It can get out of control,” said Ruffalo, who had the lead role in the Academy Award-winning film Spotlight.

The actor is known for supporting social justice causes, added, “Anger just by itself isn’t always the best way to approach something, but it is a powerful emotion when you couple it with outrage or on injustice. It is very powerful.”

“It really taps into a deep site in our psyche that we relate to the Hulk and Banner so much because all of us have lost control over anger,” he said.

Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Doctor Strange in the much-awaited movie, said it was not a curious fan in him, but an old-school performer that demanded the script from Marvel.

“I am kind of old-school in terms of filmmaking. I don’t know how I managed to get the complete script. I am good at keeping secrets. As a fan, I didn’t want to know what was going on, but as a character I had to understand the bracket in which I had to be operating. I had more reasons, other than curiosity,” said Cumberbatch.

He said reading the script made no difference as he is confident that there will be many more surprises for him when he finally catches the film at its premiere. “It doesn’t make a difference. I will be sitting in the premiere and going like, ‘Did I read that?’. A Marvel film is never what it is on script and that’s what the joy is. There is a great fluidity and improvisation,” he said.
