‘Avengers': Why Is the Hulk So Sad? — PICS


The Avengers isn’t just a movie about superpowers, explosions, human flight, robot warriors, demigods, gamma-radiation experiments gone awry, and eyepatches. It’s also about character. Characters like the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Beneath his behemoth, green and rage-aholic exterior, there lurks a sad, lonely being. Why, pray tell, is the Hulk so sad? That’s a question that only the film can answer.

Other questions as posed by the enormous collection of new images from The Avengers: why is Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) so confused? Why does Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) never smile? Why is Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) wearing that tie with that jacket? And why does Captain America (Chris Evans) think he’s James Dean? All this and more to be answered on May 4!






Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
