Mark Ruffalo Says He Was Reluctant To Take Up Role Of ‘Hulk’ In Avengers

Mark Ruffalo has revealed that he came very close to turning down the role of Marvel’s Hulk when he was approached by the studios. He said that it was Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. who personally convinced him to play the role of ‘Bruce Banner’ in Avengers. Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, he said that he was unwilling to take up the role at first. “I was scared. I didn’t know what I could add to what I already thought had been done so well before me. And I had only been doing indie movies up to that point so I was like I don’t know if I am the right person for this role,” he said. While Mark thought he was not capable of doing the job, Avengers director Joss Whedon told him that he could do it. “Joss Whedon’s like, yeah, you are the right person,” the actor said. He said...

The camp of popular actress, Funke Akindele, appears to be in the cold.

Chris Hemsworth Says His Ghostbusters Cameo Helped Make Thor: Ragna

Chris Hemsworth says his Ghostbusters’ cameo helped sharpen his comedy chops for his new Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. “It was a bit of encouragement for this film and what we could do, and experiment — a lot more with improvisation,” he told PageSix Tuesday. “I credit Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live, Vacation as sort of a lead-up to this film.” Hemsworth hosted SNL and made an appearance in Ed Helm’s comedy Vacation in 2015, and had a cameo alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in last year’s Ghostbusters reboot. While Thor is not traditionally known for his sense of humor, the latest installment in the superhero franchise seems to have a more lighthearted tone judging from the trailers.

Urawa Reds 1 Shanghai SIPG 0 “2-1 agg”: Rafael Silva Books Al Hilal Decider

Urawa Reds defeated Shanghai SIPG 1-0 on Wednesday to seal a 2-1 aggregate victory and book a meeting with Al Hilal in the AFC Champions League final. Rafael Silva's headed goal from a corner in the 11th minute of the semi-final second leg at Saitama Stadium 2002 proved to be the only goal of a tight contest.

Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo Scores 10th Goal In China

Odion Ighalo has continued to make a big case for his recall to the Super Eagles after he fired his tenth goal in the Chinese Super League today. Ighalo’s Changchun Yatai were losing at home to bottom of the league club till the Nigeria international pulled the trigger four minutes from time to save them their blushes. The former Watford star is now the eighth leading scorer in the Chinese league ahead of the likes of Hulk of Brazil and Senegal’s Pape Cisse. He has made 20 appearances, meaning he now averages a goal every other game. But he is still 13 goals shy of the top scorer in the league. His club are now 10th on the 16-team table with 26 points from 21 matches.

Oscar Set For CSL Comeback After 8-Match Ban For Brawl

The 26-year-old returned to action for his club on Thursday evening in the Chinese FA Cup as SIPG overturned a 3-0 deficit from the first leg of their quarterfinal meeting with Tianjin with a 4-0 win that sets up a meeting with league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande in the semifinals.

Oscar is suspended for eight games after a brawl. Carlos Tevez riles fans with a trip to Disneyland while his club are playing. Ezequiel Lavezzi and Hulk deny being anti-Chinese. As the Chinese Super League (CSL) hits the halfway point of the season this weekend, the megabucks lavished on imported players has triggered unprecedented interest, but the headlines have been dominated by foreigners behaving badly. While nobody is chasing them out of the country just yet, Brazilian international Oscar — who received the mammoth ban for sparking a mass brawl last week — is not even the latest acquisition to run into trouble. Beijing Guoan’s Turkish striker Burak Yilmaz was sent off on Monday night after appearing to slap an opponent during a melee at the end of a bad-tempered scoreless h...
