Brief cut of a conversation with Mark Ruffallo and him taking Banner.
The nutshell seems to be that in his opinion the genre has become respectable now.
"I probably wouldn't have done this movie in the past. But because of what Robert [Downey Jr] had done and where that genre has gone since then, I did it."
While paychecks certainly help it might lend some credence to why other big name actors are popping up in roles from Batman to Green Lantern and Thor. Stigma has faded away. Probably also due to studios treating the material more serious.

Heath Ledger winning an Oscar (albeit posthumously) probably helped the cause, too.
