Despite Marvel's consistent efforts to avoid spoilers, Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo recently made headlines for accidentally live streaming a portion of Thor: Ragnarok on social media. From there, Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland subsequently used the fallout from this incident to demand a script to Avengers: Infinity War for his personal use, noting he was no longer the biggest Marvel secret revealer. Now, Mark Ruffalo and others on the internet have responded to Holland's not-so-subtle dig, and the responses are pretty great. One fan even took to social media in response to Holland's request for a script and wrote:
Twitter user @cubansholland has absolutely no chill, but the statement is not necessarily incorrect. Spider-Man remains a newcomer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe--and a blabbermouth to boot--and as such, it might be somewhat soon to start making those demands, even if his recent MCU adventure has gone on to become a total box office powerhouse.
This savage clap back against Tom Holland eventually got back to Mark Ruffalo himself, and the man behind The Hulk took to social media to double down on the shots fired at Holland. Ruffalo wrote:
Of course, Tom Holland should've known never to get The Incredible Hulk angry. You wouldn't like him when he is angry.
For the sake of context, let's all go back to the initial Tom Holland post that got this ball rolling in the first place. You can check it out below to see how the Spider-Man actor pretty clearly fired the first shots.
With all of these posts and burns in mind, we should probably take this moment to note that it does not look like there's any real bad blood behind the scenes at Marvel. Tom Holland's comment about Mark Ruffalo seems like a fun joke, and that jovial tone has remained relatively consistent throughout all of these responses. This isn't a Dwayne Johnson vs. Vin Diesel situation, or a Dwayne Johnson vs. Tyrese Gibson situation (seriously, what's going on over at the Fast and Furious franchise?), but it's more of a way to keep fans excited about the sheer amount of secrecy leading up to the release of Infinity War.
Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo will finally unite their respective superheroes on the silver screen next year on May 4, 2018 when Avengers: Infinity War debuts. Until then, you can catch Ruffalo as Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters on November 3. Tickets for Ragnarok are officially available, so make sure to get yours now and start gearing up for the God of Thunder's next adventure!
