“We were having a problem with Ruffalo”: Jeremy Renner threatening to fire Mark Ruffalo From Marvel After a Disagreement Still Makes Fan Chuckle

Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner

Talking about film stars and their co-stars is always fun, especially when one star talks about another because we get to know our favorite stars in a comical and biased manner. No wonder whenever talk shows ask an actor to shed light upon some quirks and happenstance that their co-stars did, our ears perk up and our attention is fixed on their voice.

But what happens when the star in the spotlight is an Avenger? And better yet, they talk about their co-star who also happens to be an Avenger.

Fans could not forget a certain incident when The Avengers star Jeremy Renner was pissed about a certain thing with his co-star Mark Ruffalo and tried to get him fired from the franchise.

Jeremy Renner Tried To Get Mark Ruffalo “Fired”

This all started when the cast of Marvel’s The Avengers including Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth, along with Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo collectively decided to get a tattoo in commemoration of all the years that they had dedicated to their roles as the OG six Avengers. This was just after the epic conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, and they decided to signify their friendship and camaraderie along with their sentimental connection through this gesture that they can remember for the rest of their lives.

But at the last minute, Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Incredible Hulk in the MCU, chickened out of getting the tattoo, and this seemed to put the whole cast in a state of disappointment. Jeremy Renner was especially very disheartened because he felt that this tattoo signified their bond with each other. So Renner came up with a way they could get back at Mark Ruffalo. And Boy this was gonna be an extreme measure!

In an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jeremy Renner revealed that all the original cast members of The Avengers had a group chat so that they would all keep in touch with each other on and off set. With the problem in hand, Renner had a crazy idea, which included Eric Bana, the actor that played the Big Green Monster in 2003’s Hulk. He suggested they should give him a call and ask if he would like to get the tattoo with them, directly implying to take Ruffalo out of the picture and reinstate Bana as the Hulk of the present.

When Jeremy Renner revealed this to the public, they could not hold back their laughter and were vocal about it as well. This was a prank that could have gone very horribly, but gladly it was only a joke. The crew, of course, forgave Ruffalo, and then they all tattooed their symbol on the artist who inked them instead. According to Ruffalo, he opted out for two reasons. The main one, he claimed, was due to his fear of needles, which is a little hard to believe as he plays the biggest and strongest Avenger in the MCU. His other reason was more personal, however, as he explained that he has a contrarian nature.

It has been almost 3 years since the end of Avengers: Endgame, and ever since then, all of the original cast has come a long way. Many of the stars have made their last appearances in the MCU, and are now saying goodbye to their roles as the old Avengers. Robert Downey Jr. left the MCU when Iron Man sacrificed himself to save half of the universe, while Chris Evans lived the life he always dreamt of with the love of his life by jumping back in time, and returning to the present as an old man in Avengers: Endgame. Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff tragically dies during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, and now Jeremy Renner that he won’t be returning as Hawkeye in the MCU after the events of Hawkeye. 

Now, we only have Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk remain a part of the MCU, trying to keep the legacy of their former teammates going on. It may be an uncharted road for all of them, but The Avengers will overcome any odds because that’s what they do best.
