Mark Ruffalo has revealed how Hulk and Bruce Banner fit into Infinity War. At the beginning of the upcoming Avengers movie, the heroes are going to be divided and scattered in places pretty far-reaching. However, once Banner makes his return to Earth, he's going to be the one who warns his fellow heroes about Thanos and tries to impress upon them just how dangerous the Mad Titan actually is.
When last we left Bruce Banner, following the events of Thor: Ragnarok, he was aboard the ship somewhere in space with Thor, Loki and the rest of the Asgardians. As revealed in one of the post-credits scenes, Thanos' ship finds them and, while we still have yet to see how it all goes down, things aren't looking good for those aboard Thor's ship and that gives Banner a first-hand view of how destructive Thanos can be. Here's what he had to say about how he fits into Avengers: Infinity War.
"Banner knows probably more about Thanos than anybody. He's really trying to impress on everybody how dangerous he is. It's a little bit of a Chicken Little. He comes in screaming, 'Bloody murder!' He's seen what damage [Thanos] can cause and how powerful he is. The entire group is in disarray, so there's also getting caught up on what's happened here. He's trying to get them to transcend their differences and impress upon them how much danger they're actually facing...The Hulk is also mightily impressed by Thanos."
There's not much in the universe that can scare Hulk, but Thanos can do the trick. Bruce Banner hasn't been on Earth since the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron when he rode off into space. After arriving on Sakaar, he was Hulk for a few years straight, until Thor managed to turn him back into Banner. That clearly had an impact on him, as seen in Thor: Ragnarok. In Infinity War, the lines between Banner and his big, green alter ego are going to continue to blur a bit, which could make things interesting for his teammates in the movie.
"The division between Hulk and Banner is starting to blur a little bit. You have a Hulk that can actually express himself without being angry."
Much of what we're going to see and how it's going to unfold in Avengers: Infinity War remains a mystery. We've still yet to see a full-length trailer and the movie is just six weeks from release. Though, we know one is coming soon. Marvel wants to keep many of the surprises intact until audiences around the world get to witness the event for themselves on April 27. Considering that the hype for this movie has been building amongst fans for months now, Infinity War is poised to break box office records as is. So there's no real need for Marvel Studios to spoil what's coming. But we now know at least a bit of what we're going to see from Mark Ruffalo this time around.
