It's crazy how time flies. Has it really been more than a year since Avengers: Endgame came out and box office records?

Fast forward to today, Mark Ruffalo admitted during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he was "scared" about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the role of The Hulk was offered to him.

"I was scared. I didn't know what I could add to what I already thought had been done so well before me," he confessed to Jimmy. "And I just was like I've only been doing indie movies up til that point. So I was like, 'I don't know if I' the right person for this.' And (director) Joss Whedon's like, 'Yeah, you are the right person.'"

But he was finally convinced by Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr. "I got a call from Downey, it must've made it to him that I was hemming and hawing, and he just simply said, 'Ruffalo, let's go. We got this.' In true Iron Man fashion. And then after that, I was like, 'I guess I have to do it.'"

Meanwhile, Mark Ruffalo pitched a cool concept for a new Avengers Hulk movie - how Bruce Banner become "The Bulk"! Sounds interesting, right? Watch the interview below:
