Lou Ferrigno can not take Mark Ruffalo "seriously" as a Hulk in the Marvel film universe. Ferrigno played the raging character of the flagship television series of 1978 The incredible Hulk, while actor Bill Bixby described Dr. David Bruce Banner. MCU fans like Mark Ruffalo in the MCU and enjoyed his progress over the last few movies. Avengers: End of the game gave us Professor Hulk, or "Smart Hulk", on the big screen for the first time, stretching out even more what the character was capable of.
However, Lou Ferrigno does not have it. He is not in the way the MCU has treated the character that he and Bill Bixby have helped to bring home closer to home more than 40 years ago. Hulk has had a lot of twists in the comics, which have been shown on the big screen in various forms, but Ferrigno is not there. He had this to say at Montreal's Comic-Con.
"Mark is a terrific actor, but we had three different actors: Eric Bana, Edward Norton, and Mark Ruffalo, I like Bill Bixby the best, I love Edward Norton." But Ruffalo – I think that's what he's doing. he is an actor, he is confused with the Marvel aspect of the Avengers – but I can not take it seriously enough. "
The opinion of Lou Ferrigno could prove quite unpopular with MCU fans, while some might tend to be in agreement. There has been a lot of talk about Marvel Studios losing a certain advantage when Disney joins a certain group of fans and they will probably appreciate what Ferrigno has to say. As for why he thinks Hulk lost his advantage in the MCU, Ferrigno says it could be related to Disney. He explains.
"Bill (Bixby) has that intensity, and you knew that when he was in danger, you could feel that intensity, but because of Marvel and Disney, they took a different direction, you can not take it as seriously as the original series. "
While Lou Ferrigno expresses his opinion, it could be worrying for MCU fans. The Incredible Hulk was not exactly the best show on television, but it was working as planned and was a major success, especially in Europe. However, it can not compete with what Marvel Studios has built over the past decade. The intensity is "why people liked it so much", according to Ferrigno. Ferrigno thinks that the original television series was better because of the intensity of David Bruce Banner of Hulk and Bill Bixby. Ferrigno had this to say.

"I have so many fans coming to see me, they tell me when they were young, they were fighting to watch it.They were going to sit behind the couch, but when they see me as Hulk – they want see the Hulk because of this attraction, because it's an accumulation, adrenaline, that's what makes the show. "
The incredible Hulk originally broadcast from 1978 to 1982 and consisted of 80 episodes. Although it was a success in North America, it was a huge success overseas. Lou Ferrigno and Bill Bixby were going to get into the character of Professor Hulk in a film of the week, but Bixby unfortunately died and the TV movie never came out. Comic Book was the first to report Lou Ferrigno's reflections on Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.
