Hell, how old is Samuel L Jackson? 65?
plus Ruffalo looks good in that new movie coming out where the magicians are robbing banks or something. (No idea what it's called)

I like both Norton and Ruffalo.

As a poster mentioned earlier, Norton portrayed the Bruce that was tormented by what was living inside of him, and Ruffalo portrayed the in-control Bruce.

As for the Hulks, Norton's was my favorite. In terms of design at least. That particular Hulk seemed weak, or maybe too grounded, I dunno. Ruffalo's Hulk design was my least favorite, but he seemed much more powerful.

Of course both Hulk's powers pale in comparison to the 2003's Hulk's.

I loved Ruffalo's Banner so much. I liked all three Bruce's we have had so far, but Ruffalo's Banner I believed in the most.

His first scene with Widow in the Avengers is just stellar.

Yeah, I like Norton and Ruffalo. I agree that their different takes on the character reflected how Bruce Banner had changed.

Norton's Banner had been hiding for years, kept away from his girlfriend and living in constant fear of losing control. It made sense for him to be quieter, giving off hints of torment.

Ruffalo's Banner is a front. He learned to take greater control over the Hulk, as depicted at the end of the 2008 movie. However, the cost of that is that he's "always angry." Ruffalo puts on a friendly, pleasant, and mild-mannered facade that's more capable of humor. However, his words are carefully chosen for effect, and he's very aware of the terrible power that he has over others.

I love the Banner/Widow scene in India as well. The way he carries himself there shows so much about him.
