10 Best Motion Capture Performances

9. Mark Ruffalo As The Incredible Hulk (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

Marvel Studios

Proving that the third time's a charm, Mark Ruffalo's rendition of the Jade Giant was a wonderful blend of playfulness and savagery. This version of the Hulk was the most realized version seen in theatres; easily beating out Eric Bana's Shrek doppelganger and Edward Norton's poorly rendered CG beast in both expressiveness and screen presence.

It certainly helped that this version of Hulk visually resembled Ruffalo's Bruce Banner, giving audiences a never before seen emotional tether to the man beneath the beast. Ruffalo one-upped his predecessors by voicing Hulk as well, alongside the OG version of the character, Lou Ferrigno.

Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame saw the Strongest Avenger (sorry, Thor fans) really come into his own as a fully fleshed out character. Ruffalo was given more free rein to express himself through the CG coating and take the character to new heights and urgency in terms of storytelling and character development.

This growth is owed to The 'Professor Hulk' persona; an inspired direction to take the character in.
