It’s hard enough to keep information and unofficial photos from leaking from a blockbuster superhero movie, but for the actors involved with said movie, there’s a different challenge: keeping secrets about the production. Such was the problem for the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but in the case of Bruce Banner/The Hulk actor, Mark Ruffalo, it was easy for him not to spill the beans because he was kept in an area where those around could barely understand him.

While keeping secrets can be tricky, it wasn't an issue for Ruffalo this time out. The actor told THR that he was able to keep from revealing details on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron because, as he says, he was,
sequestered in a small village where people didn't speak proper English.

So even if he accidentally mentioned something juicy about the movie, the people who might have overheard him wouldn't understand what he was saying. Aside from shooting in various locations in England, Avengers: Age of Ultron also filmed in South Africa and South Korea, but Ruffalo didn’t specify in which country this village was.

With Hulk playing a much larger role for the Avengers sequel, I imagine there was a lot more material that he had to keep secret, especially concerning what the character's fate will be at the end of the film. Although he’s expected to appear in at least one of the Avengers: Infinity War films, there’s been no indication of whether he will be involved with the other Phase Three movies. When recently asked whether Hulk will be disappearing or coming back in a big way, director Joss Whedon simply stated the plans for the Green Goliath are "too amazing."

Quicksilver actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson reaffirmed how difficult it is to keep his mouth shut, but also mentioned how Marvel has gotten good at keeping secrets, pointing out that even if some information has leaked out, there are still enough surprises left in the film. He says:
[It seems like] everything nowadays has got to have a leak or something has been let out, and what's wonderful about Marvel is you can go to the movies and actually see something that is a surprise — where you haven't read about it on blogs or someone hasn't given it away or what have you. I think it's great that the studio respected those secrets.

Smart phones and the Internet have made it downright impossible for blockbusters to keep what they’re working on a complete secret, but what matters now is keeping enough on the down low that the audience will still be surprised certain points. Even the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens dealt with leaks during the filming, and that film’s plot and many of the characters’ identities have managed to stay secret. Most of the people seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend shouldn't be too spoiled…just be careful what you click on while browsing the web in the meantime.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits U.S. theaters starting tonight.
