Banner talk too much (Picture: Marvel/BBC) Mark Ruffalo has always been THE. WORST when it comes to trying to hide secrets about the MCU – and he might have just let slip The Avengers are going to make a comeback. The star appeared on the Graham Norton Show where he spoke about his time as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, alongside Friends star David Schwimmer, Tamsin Grieg, and Intelligence's Nick Mohammed. When Nick admitted he hadn't seen the hugely popular franchise, the others tried to give him a break down of what he'd missed, as he admitted he 'didn't know where to start' with the two-dozen movies (and counting) so far. He then turned to Mark and said: 'This might sound like a stupid question – is Endgame the last one?' The question threw Mark off, who suddenly looked panicked as he tried to come up with an answer.
Graham then said it was 'the most recent one' and said: 'Well you're not going to do… are you doing more of them?!' Mark Ruffalo seemed to make a major slip up (Picture: BBC) Whoops (Picture: BBC) 'I don't know!,' Mark responded. But his face said a thousand words as he then covered his mouth and looked horrified… and it was obvious he'd just let something slip. 'You haven't said anything bad! You just said you don't know,' Graham said to reassure him. Hulk would be mad at Banner right about now… (Picture: Marvel) Hulk is great at many things but keeping secrets isn't one of them (Picture: Marvel) The star then shrugged and added: 'Who knows really?' 'You do!' Graham added.
'We'll stop now because it would be terrible if we got you fired… but you are.'

A lot has been made of Professor Hulk's emergence in Avengers: Endgame, or rather that people didn't get to see the moment on screen. Well, now a VFX test focusing on Bruce Banner in that ascended state has popped up online and people are wondering why this moment didn't make the final cut. (You can catch the rougher version of the scene here below) Everything begins with Hulk sitting at a computer in a Stark lab. He's trying to run a test and then everything goes sideways. Upon hearing the alarms and failing the experiment, Banner punches the screen and complains that nobody ever trusts him because they're afraid he's going to screw up. It's a bit emotional and funny, but that wasn't the path this film was going to take. Plenty of people were looking for an expectation when Smart Hulk turned up in Avengers: Endgame. That revelation coming off-screen made a lot of people confused as to why that decision was made. "We wanted to track how every one of the Avengers was moving forward from the experience of Infinity War," Anthony Russo began. "Banner is left with this reality that neither version of himself could stop Thanos. In the theatrical version of Infinity War, Hulk isn't exactly leaping at the chance to get that rematch with Thanos. Banner loses as well by the end of the film and is left to cope with that "L" for a long time. Smart Hulk had to be arrived at carefully and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed how their plans had to change before Endgame. "We wrote [Infinity War], we shot it, and then went on to shoot most of Endgame," Markus offered. "And it was: he achieved union with the Hulk while inside the Hulkbuster, burst out, and kicked Cull Obsidian's ass. It was completely the wrong tone for that moment in the movie. But we had already shot Endgame, where he was already Smart Hulk." "Also, it's like, you get it. Part of the thing we learn every time you write a movie — and particularly a movie where it's a continuing storyline — you don't have to explain as much as you think you have to. You can go to Queens, people know who Spider-Man is," Markus added. "I don't need to see him get bitten by the spider again. Like, 'okay, he's a combination of Hulk and Banner, I get it.' Just give me a crumb as to how it happened." Did you know ComicBook.com has a podcast?
