Mark Ruffalo opened up with some interesting details about his character arc in Avengers: Infinity War as part of a set visit by io9, discussing what exactly his character is trying to accomplish among his fellow heroes, who haven’t seen him since his disappearance after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While speaking to io9, Mark Ruafflo discussed how his character is coming into this movie with a lot more knowledge on the threat that is coming to the Avengers, more than likely due to where his character is at the end of Thor: Ragnarok. Here is what Ruffalo had to say on the situation:
“[Banner’s] really trying to impress on everybody how dangerous [Thanos] is, He comes in screaming bloody murder. He’s seen what damage he can cause and how powerful he is—and the entire group is in disarray, so he’s also getting caught up on what’s happened here and is trying to get them to transcend their differences and impress upon them how much danger they’re actually facing.”
This quote actually has a lot to unpack, seeing as people were curious how exactly Banner winds up back on earth after being on an Asgardian spaceship with Thor after the events of Ragnarok. This quote confirms not only that Thanos more than likely attacks Thor and his people, but that the Hulk fights a losing battle against Thanos and his lackeys. That being said, the Infinity War trailer shows Bruce landing in the home of Doctor Stephen Strange, setting up Bruce reuniting with his fellow Avengers, with knowledge and a desperate warning to get themselves together before it’s too late.
Finding his teammates in disarray and disbanded also gives Bruce an interesting and unexpected role in Infinity War, as shown by the quote. Having Banner be the one to try and put the team back together and warn of this impending threat will be an interesting thing to watch unfold, as well as see his perspective on the events that occurred in Civil War while he was away in space.
