Mark Ruffalo, as Marvel’s Hulk, talks a lot — unlike the Hulk, actually. Ruffalo’s been known to accidentally drop many a spoiler on talk shows, followed by an “ooops” face, and usually an unsuccessful attempt to pass it off as a joke. It seems he just did it again, live with Jimmy Fallon. Maybe.
Possible spoiler ahead…
Ruffalo clearly tells the entire audience the movie title for Avengers 4, which has been kept under heavy wraps since the title for Avengers Infinity War was released. Director Kevin Feige previously announced the title itself was a spoiler, and that speaking it was verboten.

In the video, Ruffalo’s words are bleeped and blocked out, but fans pieced together what’s he’s saying anyway, and it seems to be “The Last Avenger”. If true, it makes a nice bookend with Captain America: The First Avenger, especially with Chris Evans announcing he will be hanging up Cap’s mantle in Avengers 4.
This may or may not be the name of the movie, as the entertainment world is pretty aware of Ruffalo’s spoilerey reputation: the whole thing could just be a pre-planned joke on the audience, intended only for laughs.
Of course, Ruffalo isn’t the most loose-lipped member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He shares that special spot with young Tom Holland (Spiderman), in a little video moment I wrote about here.
Here’s the Ruffalo segment on Fallon’s show. Do you think this is a legit spoiler, or a playful set-up? (Clearly the ending is meant as great fun…)

Just thinking of the title, and the meaning, gives me goosebumps. Kudos to everyone involved with the MCU for creating such a compelling universe of characters and drama.

I know. I LOVE the title, if that’s actually what they have in mind.
The MCU completely upended what I expect in a movie. Very little others can compete anymore, since my expectations are so happily high now. Character and relationships are key for really good adventure films. And it has been since the first blockbusters, with Star Wars, Jaws, Raiders…I wish more filmmakers, directors, and screen writers would get the memo. 😉
Your proofreading Hero
That is JIMMY FALLON …. NOT JIMMY KIMMEL .. just FYI.

Hi Proofreading Hero! You are indeed correct and I am a right fool. I made sure and then changed it. Thank you for catching my mistake! Hugs from RunPee…
