Mark Ruffalo and Cobie Smulders

Cineplex Movie Blog – Ruffalo and Smulders ASSEMBLE to talk Avengers

It’s fair to say that no one expected to see Cobie Smulders (the Canadian “How I Met Your Mother” knockout) and indie fixture Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right, Zodiac) in a summer blockbuster about the Earth’s mightiest heroes joining forces to save the planet but after watching The Avengers, you’d be hard-pressed to think of actors who may have pulled off bad-ass S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and Bruce Banner/The Hulk any better than them.

Writer-director Joss Whedon’s ensemble epic is positively bursting with A-listers who’ve already had a chance to try on their superhero costumes in other movies from the Marvel universe (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man), putting Smulders and Ruffalo in a unique position where they had to both prove themselves to the rampant fanbase and had the room to explore and redefine these characters.
