Mark Ruffalo on The Avengers 2 cast rumours
Will The Avengers cast be returning for The Avengers 2? Mark Ruffalo has one or two things to say...
Last week, rumours sprung up that there may well be issues regarding Marvel getting the cast back together for Joss Whedon's The Avengers 2. Apparent financial grumbles were cited, although inevitably, specifics were thin on the ground. The story ran though that negotiations with key cast members were not going well.
Mark Ruffalo, the Hulk himself, has been chatting to Moviefone, and this issue came up. Ruffalo, fortunately, was willing to correct some of the reports. "I haven't caught wind of any of that", he said. "I was surprised to hear it, because I don't even think anyone's really started negotiating yet. As far as I know [everyone is back]. But sometimes actors are the last people to know what's going on".
He also confirmed that, were some of the roles ultimately recast, he would still return, although "I'd be really sad" if they were.
We suspect that if there's any truth to the financial negotiations issues, that it's unlikely to result in The Avengers 2 losing any cast members, no matter how much hardball Marvel likes to play. We will, of course, keep you posted.
