Once it was confirmed that Edward Norton would not be returning as The Hulk in The Avengers the first rumor to make its way out on who could be the replacement was a bizarre one regarding Joaquin Phoenix. Now though we may have a better idea of who Marvel is looking to cast and it is someone that comes across as a more traditional fit.

Mark Ruffalo is currently the target to take on the role of Bruce Banner which would bring him into the ensemble cast of The Avengers that includes Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor). According to The Hollywood Reporter the offer has been made but no agreement has been come to as of yet. Marvel has hopes of having the role solidified  in time to introduce the full cast at Comic-Con late this coming week.
