Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal of the Hulk has won accolades for emotional nuance and depth ever since it debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, do you remember his intense fight scene against Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in the 2012 Avengers movie? The God of Mischief is tough to match for the majority of the other Avengers, but the Hulk gave him a serious fight. He even goes so far as to refer to Loki as a “puny god” before giving him a severe beating.

“I had a piece of wire tied to my ankle and there was a mat on the floor, which was out of shot, and three of the strongest stunt guys holding the wire at the end behind the camera. The experience being yanked out of frame was one I will not forget in a hurry…For about two years after that, I couldn’t go through airports anywhere in the world without somebody kind of going, ‘Hey, Mr. Loki, I love it when you get Hulk smashed.’ It became a bit of a thing in a fun way.”
