With Avengers: Endgame set to hit theaters next month, Marvel Studios has begun its press tour. We know Marvel is all about secrets and is very strict on actors revealing too much information about the movie, possibly spoiling the film during interviews. We also know, from previous MCU press tours, that there are certain cast members, like Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), that are prone to spill the beans.
Lucky for us, Mark Ruffalo appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, who brought a lie detector to the stage to ask Mark spoiler territory questions. “Oh, come on!” Ruffalo says upon seeing the briefcase open up to be a lie detector. “That’s not cool! This is on TV man! I don’t want to get fired again” he added, referring to the last time he appeared on The Tonight Show and accidentally let the Avengers 4 title slip.
Fallon begins by asking Ruffalo if The Hulk is actually a Skrull, the shape shifting alien’s, introduced in Captain Marvel (2019). The lie detector results showed that Ruffalo was lying when he said he couldn’t answer that.
He then asked Mark whether there were any hidden details in the new trailer for Avengers: Endgame we may have missed. Ruffalo said “no” which ended up being a lie as well.
Fallon continued “Do Bruce Banner and Black Widow finally get together romantically in the next movie?” Ruffalo of course said “Jimmy, I can’t answer.” This seems to be Mark’s only answer, except for two non-spoiler questions related to Hulk childrens toys and Don Cheadle’s good looks. Both of which turned out to be true.
They end the segment asking Ruffalo “Is everyone who disappeared from the snap from Thanos actually gone, or is there anyway they can come back?” Ruffalo replies “You know what, Jimmy. I’m outta here,” then snaps himself out of The Tonight Show!
We should be proud of Ruffalo, I mean he did keep the spoilers during this interview under lock and key. With that said, Marvel utilizes actors like Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland, who have inadvertently revealed details in the past to promote their movies. It has become an inside joke between the fans and actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
