Original Hulk Actor Lou Ferrigno Not A Fan Of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Portrayal

The Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno wasn’t a fan of Avengers: Endgame‘s portrayal of the iconic green character.

Back in the late ’70s, Lou Ferrigno was the Hulk that everyone was tuning into on television before superhero movies fully took off. Lou Ferrigno is so entrenched into the Hulk mythos that he even voiced the MCU character’s appearances up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, when Mark Ruffalo took over the voice role. Seeing as he’s worked with the MCU before, it’s pretty jarring for Lou Ferrigno to speak ill towards Avengers: Endgame‘s portrayal of the character he helped bring to life.

The Hulk has been going through quite the journey in the MCU, with Avengers: Endgame being the culmination of his general spiritual and physical journey. In Avengers: Endgame, it’s revealed that Bruce Banner has managed to find the amalgamation between Bruce Banner’s mind and Hulk’s physical strength, resulting in a hybrid of both called Smart Hulk.

For Lou Ferrigno, this wasn’t the way to take the character. At the Hamilton Comic-Con in Canada, Lou Ferrigno expressed his distaste for how Mark Ruffalo and co. treated the character in Avengers: Endgame.

“What’s happening is that the first two Hulk movies, the CGI was improving, but the last one, Endgame, I was disappointed. Because the Hulk needs to be hideous, he needs to be a creature. You see in Endgame, Mark Ruffalo — I think it has a lot to do with him and Disney — I didn’t like the way it portrayed [Hulk]. It took away that beauty, that quality of the Hulk. That’s why a lot of people liked the series.”

At the convention, Lou Ferrigno also went on to say that he found Avengers: Endgame to be too extreme with “spaceships, the shooting, the outer space.” We’ve certainly come a far way from Lou Ferrigno putting on green make-up all over his body and having to be actually physically fit. Because of CGI, we’ve been able to create serveral interesting versions of the Hulk throughout the years. As disappointing as it is that Lou Ferrigno isn’t a fan of Avengers: Endgame, we’re just glad that Mark Ruffalo was able to finish the character arc he and Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege were working on for the Hulk.
