During his time playing Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo, like Tom Holland, has gained a reputation for spoiling things. You tell him a sensitive piece of plot information, and there’s a decent chance that he might accidentally reveal said information in public. Now Frozen 2 star Josh Gad is poking fun at Rufflalo’s poor track record with keeping secrets with the following tweet about the upcoming Disney release.
This is a pretty good burn Josh Gad laid on Mark Ruffalo, and playing along, Ruffalo then asked Gad on Twitter to DM him about if everybody dies in Frozen 2 following the release of the sequel’s first trailer. What does this movie look like, Avengers: Infinity War?! In any case, Gad clearly knows of Ruffalo’s propensity to inadvertently say things about an upcoming release that he shouldn’t (like how half of the heroes in Avengers: Infinity War did indeed end up biting the dust, pun fully intended) and is making sure he doesn’t make that same mistake over the next nine months.
Josh Gad would also be wise not to share any Frozen 2 details with Mark Ruffalo privately whatsoever, even if they are both members of the Disney empire… I mean, family. After all, if Tom Holland could spoil Chris Pratt on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s plot before Pratt had even read the script, then it’s a good bet that Ruffalo could spoil something about Frozen 2 to someone he meets before the sequel drops in theaters.
To Disney’s credit, the studio hasn’t released any official plot details about Frozen 2 yet. The trailer had quite a few interesting moments, like Elsa using her ice powers to fight the waves from a nearby beach to Anna grabbing Sven’s sword and slicing at something offscreen, but we have absolutely no context for any of these scenes. 2019 is packed with highly-anticipated Disney releases, and it’s safe to say that Frozen 2 ranks towards the top of the list, so Disney is aiming to keep fans in the dark for as long as possible. Fingers crossed Josh Gad sticks to his goal not to emulate Mark Ruffalo in the meantime.
It’s worth noting that Frozen 2 isn’t the only Disney movie Josh Gad is appearing in this year. He’s also playing Mulch Diggers in Artemis Fowl, although since that’s based off a book that was released nearly two decades, spoilers aren’t quite as big of a deal. As for Mark Ruffalo, he’s reprising Bruce Banner this April in Avengers: Endgame, and while Banner’s monstrous other half only appeared in Avengers: Infinity War’s opening, Hulk will be back in action for the Phase 3 capper and be sporting his own costume.
Frozen 2 will work its magic in theaters on November 22, so stay tuned to CinemaBlend for continuing coverage. In the meantime, look through our 2019 release schedule to learn what other major motion pictures are coming out this year.
