Luckily for us, Mark Ruffalo is kinder to fans than his Science Bros counterpart, Robert Downey Jr.
Ruffalo, who played Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the first Avengers film and an end-credit scene for Iron Man 3, instagrammed a couple of pictures from the set of Age of Ultron. Even better, the actor referenced the tumblr meme “Science Bros,” you can bet that launched a thousand shipper feels.
Unfortunately, I think fans had something a little better in mind when they requested a picture… You know, like maybe everyone in costume? Some potential spoilers? We should have known better. Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is currently in production, reuniting Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. The highly anticipated film, written and directed by Joss Whedon, is expected to hit theaters May 1, 2015. (source)
This doesn’t need much explanation. We’ve referenced before how much fans are dying to know, “What Happened in Budapest?” based on all those references between Black Widow and Hawkeye in The Avengers. As it often happens, when left to their own devices, fans will create their own headcanons until the official story comes along. This is, easily, one of our favorites yet.
