Ultron is likely that “wrong” something as Tony Stark’s creation turns evil. The Foxcatcher star then talked about Banner’s tie to Natasha Romanov aka, the Black Widow.

“His relationship with Natasha deepens,” he said. “There’s something similar about the two of them. I see them as lost souls. They’re kindred in some ways.”

“He does feel more comfortable with himself,” Ruffalo said to Total Film of the Hulk. “His confidence is getting better. But, you know, that gets shaken. His ability to handle the Hulk really gets thrown into question in this film. The hard part is coming back. Hulk doesn’t want to cede his place. It’s much harder to come back from being Hulk than it is to get into him.”

“I think there’s a whole other chapter we haven’t seen yet where you find the other nuances within him,” he continued. “The battle of identity going on between him and Banner is all about establishing dominance. The only thing that Hulk is really afraid of is Banner. That’s an interesting dynamic.”

Ruffalo assures fans that Age of Ultron will still have some light moments, despite its dark tones. “What Joss is going after is really big,” he said. “But there’s still lots of laughs. There’s some goofy stuff. I mean, it’s Whedon!”

The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson and James Spader.

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015.
