Actor Mark Ruffalo says he was forced to film five endings of Avengers: Endgame, the last chapter of the Marvel’s Avengers film, because the makers were worried he would ruin the surprise.
Ruffalo who plays Hulk in the series, said in an interview directors Joe and Anthony Russo did not want him to know the ending and therefore he had to shoot five climaxes, reported dailymail.co.uk.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Ruffalo said, adding: “I shot, like, five different endings to this movie.”
He continued: “I didn’t even get a whole script to this movie. And I don’t know why. The script I did get had dummy scenes in it.”
The actor added that Captain America (Chris Evans) got married in one of the dummy scenes.
This move by the makers have come as a surprise to many with fans already suggesting that the Avengers: Endgame team wants to maintain and spill the beans, but never so completely. Therefore, they kept Ruffalo out to not let anyone know how the film was going to end when he was at the press tour with rest of the cast.
Chris Evans joked in the same interview to E!News, “Mark’s a real liability. They have to throw Mark off the scent.”
Ruffalo in response expressed shock for being called a liability to the franchise, but Evans did not retract his statement. “Because you have zero cred,” Captain America continued. “You have earned no trust in the Marvel universe. You, like, leak like a bodily function.”
Mark is also aptly accused since the actor had initiated leaks from the franchise films earlier including the time he accidentally live-streamed the first 20 minutes of Thor: Ragnarok on Instagram during the film’s premiere.
In fact in October 2018,the actor who was a guest at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon revealed the film’s name. Though the show bleeped the moment when it aired, it created a hilarious exchange between Ruffalo and Russo Brothers on Twitter.
The actor had once, in an interview earlier with co-star Don Cheadle, on Good Morning America for Avengers: Infinity War, stated blatantly, “Wait until you see this next one,everybody dies. Well, half.”
Cheadle had looked shocked and exclaimed “Dude” so he would realize his mistake, Ruffalo then passed of the statement as a joke, but fans and audiences who already knew what happened with Thor knew he was speaking the truth.
