It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the Hulk on the big screen. While the likes of Captain America, Thor and Iron Man all got their own films in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner was relegated to just having a small cameo in a post-credits sequence. But just because the character hasn’t been on screen doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have some very interesting stuff going on.

This past summer I had the pleasure of joining a small group of other journalists to visit the set of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and speaking with Mark Ruffalo behind the scenes we discovered some fascinating info about what Hulk has been up to since 2012 and what he will be doing in the upcoming blockbuster. There’s a lot of great stuff, so read on!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron
1. In The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bruce Banner and Hulk have reached a détente.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bruce Banner has spent years trying to make peace with the giant green rage monster inside him, and while real peace may be impossible an impossible dream, by The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the good doctor has started to gain control and live a somewhat normal life.

2. But that may just be the calm before the storm.
We learned in The Avengers that Banner keeps a cap on Hulk by always being angry, but, as Mark Ruffalo puts it, "when you think you have control over it, you absolutely don’t." There is a battle brewing between the two sides of the character, and it won’t be long before we see them come to confrontation.

3. Bruce Banner is actually living in Avengers Tower.
As seen in the post-credits sequence of Iron Man 3, Bruce Banner and Tony Stark got close after the events of The Avengers, but what you probably don’t know is that the billionaire playboy philanthropist superhero also put a roof over his head. It’s rather convenient given that Banner also has a lab in the building, where he has been working with Tony on ways to forever maintain global security.
