Director Kat Coiro reveals that Mark Ruffalo struggled with She-pilot Hulk’s episode in an interview with Attorney at Law
For more than a decade, Mark Ruffalo has been a member of the MCU. He took over for Edward Norton in the 2012 Avengers movie and made his first appearance as Bruce Banner, also known as the Hulk. Now, Mark Ruffalo is one of the few surviving members of the original six Avengers in the MCU.
Despite having performed this role for ten years, Kat Coiro, the director of the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, indicated that Mark’s latest appearance as the Hulk will be a fresh challenge for him.
When Kat Coiro was asked which episode of the program was the most difficult for her to direct, she admitted that it was really the first one because Mark was getting brand-new directions for the very first time. For the majority of his time in the MCU, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk has been a supporting character who mostly participates in action scenes. This series’ first for the Hulk involved lengthy non-action scenes with a lot of talk.
Kat Coiro used the following words to describe the entire situation:
“Mark [Ruffalo] definitely had an adjustment, because usually his Hulk is off on the sidelines, or in an action sequence, or has only a couple pages of dialogue. And this was five-page scenes.
[In order to film both Hulks together,] we had to build platforms for the two Hulks to interact and have the right eyelines and the right height.”
This would have been difficult for Kat Coiro to direct because both Hulks had a lot of CGI work involved with them, and both actors were trying their hand at long conversational scenes while wearing complete CGI outfits.
However, based on the show’s early promotional material, which has numerous Hulk and She-Hulk moments, both actors and the director ended up doing a commendable job.
Beginning on August 18, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will be available for streaming on Disney+.
