Ever since the first cast portraits from next year’s Avengers movie were released last week, I’ve been mildly obsessed with Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner pic. It’s not just his hilarious, I-can’t-believe-they-actually-released-that-picture, Blue Steel expression that hypnotized me so, however. Instead, it was this realization: Every subsequent Bruce Banner has bigger hair. Don’t believe me? Look:
Every single time they replace an actor as Bruce Banner, his hair gets bigger. I refuse to believe this is coincidence for many reasons, not least of which being that both Ed Norton and Mark Ruffalo normally have flatter hair than they have in their Banner roles. Clearly, there’s some weird Samson thing going on behind the scenes – Perhaps a reference to Doc Samson, in some weird Easter Eggy way? – but it does give me hope that the Avengers movie will feature the world’s first CGI bouffant-toting gamma-irradiated monster. And in 3D, too!
