The age-old debate between Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk strikes again as Joe Rogan opens up the debate on his podcast. People clamored when Edward Norton was replaced as the character of Hulk by Mark Ruffalo.


Making his appearance in Avengers (2012), the people applauded the Zodiac actor for his portrayal, but still kind of missed the old actor. Joe Rogan, on the other hand, thinks that people missed Mark Ruffalo’s acting skills.

” I think the video would probably be called the ‘Missed Mark Ruffalo Acting’ because he is such a good actor” started saying, Joe Rogan.

“There was enough room for him to grow. There’s so many actors in the movie. You got Captain America, you got all these f*cking people, you got Iron Man! Mark Ruffalo’s just not talking enough. Most of the time we need him as The Hulk. The Hulk has glasses now, he has f*king glasses!”

Joe Rogan went out to diss Marvel for making The Hulk always high on anger and continued,


 “The whole idea you f*cks is supposed to be that he’s a really smart guy and then he’s basically a monster who talks like ‘Hulk Smash’! He’s not smart”

The American podcaster also revealed that he has not seen Thor: Ragnarok while Alonzo Bodden continued his diss on The Incredible Hulk being a dumb guy.

While on the topic of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), since Joe Rogan hadn’t seen it, they started showing images of Hulk from the movie. As Alonzo Bodden explains the story of the movie, Joe Rogan cuts him off mid-sentence and says,

“But it’s dumb Hulk, right? Dumb Hulk is the good Hulk”

Alonzo Bodden cuts him off and says that no he’s not a scientist Hulk but he’s not a dumb Hulk either.

Joe Rogan also apparently picked sides when he said that he loved Marvel growing up but didn’t like DC that much. Alonzo Bodden went on to reveal that a storyline stated that the Hulk and Thor would never fight because it would destroy the whole planet. The duo also agreed that Thor being a god was never portrayed fully in the movies. Thus, Joe Rogan preferred Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and called the actor’s acting skills world-class.
