Does that mean he’s never heard of “Science Bros,” an Internet subculture celebrating the friendship of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, the characters Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. played in The Avengers?
“No, what is that?” he asked.
And then the giggles began.
“Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
“So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” he asked. “Like tinged with … ” Yup. “That’s cute!”
Is he now a Science Bros shipper, then? “Yeah! I love it; it’s awesome,” Ruffalo enthused. “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.”
Ruffalo couldn’t wait to drop his newfound knowledge bomb on Downey Jr. “I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”
Avengers Fandom, we are under attack. Suspected viruses have been spotted in the Chris Evans, Captain America, Robert Downey jr, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner tags. No video is safe. Don’t click anything.
When Mark Ruffalo came to the studio to experiment with different motions in the mo-cap suit, he “started to tend to go towards more apish motions, giving him that animalistic quality that gives you a feeling that he’s not quite in control.” [x]
I have to disagree with the tags because I feel as though within six hours, Richards and Stark would be in a “I’m the smartest” pissing match. Peter would be to busy fanboying the fuck out over being in the same room as his heros. And poor Bruce would be in the corner doing yoga trying not to Hulk out because OMG TONY SHUT UP AND STOP BAITING REED.
It would end with Hawkeye having to tranquilize them all from an air vent.
