I've not (yet) seen either Eric Bana's or Ed Norton's "Hulk" movies, but I expect that when I do, I'll find Ruffalo's portrayal preferable.
Source: IMDBMark Ruffalo personally portrays the Hulk through virtual-camera motion-capture. Previous live-action versions have had Bruce Banner and the Hulk be played by separate people (Bill Bixby and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno), or had the Hulk rendered into the film in computer-generated imagery.

No surprises that Joss Whedon has been signed to write and direct the sequel to The Avengers.
There will also be a TV series based on the movie.
"The Avengers 2" is happening with Joss Whedon. That's the word from Disney, as the studio confirmed Whedon will both write and direct the upcoming "Avengers" sequel during a conference call for investors on Tuesday afternoon. In a twist, Whedon will also help Marvel and ABC develop a new television series that takes place within "The Avengers" universe.
Just so it's not Fox. I'd like to see more than half a season. I'd also like to know when it starts.
And don't worry, if it is somehow Foxed, I'm sure a loyal following of Browncapes will protest enough so that maybe, someday, they'll make it into a movie. Oh, wait...

Let's just give it to HBO. Then it'll be good.
HBO is probably the best in the business today, but the TV version of The Avengers will be on ABC it looks like.
The last HBO show I liked was Spawn, and that was an incredibly dark show. I have to be in the right mood to watch it. I think it's much more likely I'd like something done by ABC than HBO.

The Wire, Rome, and Deadwood jump to mind right away when I think of HBO, plus mini-series like Band of Brothers. There's been some very good productions from the company in recent times.
Newsroom is also very, very good.
David Simon from The Wire also has Treme now about post-Katrina New Orleans, season one was really good.
I just missed seeing the Treme band yesterday with Dr. John and Cyril Neville...damn allergies.
