Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo are sticking by their decision to “fire” Avengers star Mark Ruffalo.
It all began when Ruffalo made an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and revealed the official title for Avengers, although the whole thing turned out to a big troll for fans. Ruffalo later took to Twitter and requested Fallon to beep the reveal. However, the directors thought that it’s time to get rid of Ruffalo, given that the actor has let off a few earlier too.
The Russo Brothers posted a mysterious cryptic image on their Twitter celebrating the wrapping of the filming for Avengers 4. Ruffalo responded to this tweet, trying to undo his “spoilers act” on the Tonight Show. However, the Russo Brothers responded with, “You’re still fired, Mark.”
You’re still fired, Mark.

The only potential spoilers surfacing around currently are the speculated white costumes in Avengers 4. They have been teased on an official Avengers toy. Apart from this, a supposed trailer description also surfaced online although its authenticity is questionable. Otherwise, Marvel has so far done a brilliant job at keeping secrets.
In all seriousness, they are simply trolling and joking around with the Hulk actor and for good reason.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
