Marvel Fan Decodes Bleeped Audio of Mark Ruffalo Revealing Avengers 4 Title

Last week, rumors circulated that the full title of Avengers 4 was Avengers: Annihilation. On Friday, October 6, Mark Ruffalo appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he seemingly revealed the actual title of Avengers 4, and gave away some additional spoilers.

Ruffalo is no stranger to leaking spoilers: The actor himself admitted that he basically gave away the whole ending Avengers: Infinity War while doing press with Don Cheadle.

Fallon asked Ruffalo if he could give away any information about the film, as it wouldn't get him in trouble with Marvel. Ruffalo told Fallon the title of the film and supposedly one of Hulk's scenes, but unfortunately everything he said was bleeped out.

Luckily for us, one determined Avengers fan decoded what Ruffalo said by editing out the bleeping and revealing the supposed title.

Anton Volkov tweeted out the edited audio of Ruffalo, saying, "This might not actually be the real #Avengers4 title BUT: put the audio from the Fallon/Ruffalo interview into Audition and tried removing the bleep using the spectrogram editor. THE LAST AVENGER is what was said."

CBR made the point that The Last Avenger is a logical contender for the official Avengers 4 title, considering so many of the original Avengers actors are saying goodbye to their characters and we could see a new team assembling by the end of the film.

However, we still are leaning toward the possibility that Ruffalo's "leak" was simply a stunt agreed on by Marvel Studios. For now, nothing has been confirmed regarding the title.

Alexander Skarsgård Could Have Played Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel fans may have trouble imagining Thor played by anyone other than Chris Hemsworth, but apparently, Alexander Skarsgård was pretty darn close to getting the role. How close, you ask? He tried on the costume, held the hammer, and even filmed an audition in the garb.

In 2009—just a year after True Blood premiered—the actor told MTV that he met with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Thor director Kenneth Branagh about the part. “Yeah, I met with Kevin [Feige] a few times and the director,” he said. “There was definitely some truth in that, yeah.”

When the MTV interviewer said he thought the actor had the perfect look to bring Thor to life, Skarsgård simply replied, “So did I.”

But before you start to feel too sorry for Skarsgård, let's not forget the number of impressive roles the True Blood alum has landed. At the moment, he’s playing Perry Wright in HBO’s Big Little Lies, for which he won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

As for the Thor role, Hemsworth went on to play the God of Thunder in multiple films, and although his future in the MCU is not certain after Avengers: Endgame, the Australian actor confirmed he’d love to keep playing the character.

While we can't wait for the third season of Stranger Things to premiere next month, many of us have also probably forgotten what happened in the series' first two seasons—especially the tiniest of details, which might prove to be significant in the upcoming episodes. Coming up with fan theories can get difficult when we can’t remember everything, but watching all 17 episodes before July 4 isn't feasible for everyone. That's why this new video, in which the cast of the Netflix hit provides the ultimate recap, is a lifesaver.

The video features Sadie Sink (Max Mayfield), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), and Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) recalling all the key moments of seasons 1 and 2, in just over 15 minutes.

The actors first go through the main characters of the series, explaining how each of them are intertwined, such as Hawkins's sheriff Jim Hopper, and Nancy's then-boyfriend Steve Harrington. They introduce the Upside Down, which Will was trapped in during the majority of the first season, resulting in his mom Joyce relying on a few nontraditional strategies to get him back. The cast also explains who Eleven is and how she's able to help get Will back.

The recap pinpoints all the major moments of the first season, and then goes into the second season, where everything in Hawkins appears to be normal again. The latest season, as the cast recalls, explores Eleven's backstory and introduces new characters like Max Mayfield, Billy Hargrove, Bob Newby, and sadly, the baby Demogorgon named D'Artagnan. The video concludes with the school Snowball dance, but things don't exactly end on a happy note, as the season's final moments show a monster is still very present in Hawkins.

As action-packed as Stranger Things is, a recap like this is truly a must. We'll rewatch it a few times before season 3 debuts on July 4.
