Mark Ruffalo Filmed a Death Scene for Hulk in Avengers: Infinity War

It’s no secret that not even the cast of Avengers: Endgame fully knows what happens in the upcoming film. The actors have let on that they are just as much in the dark as we are, making recent interviews with the stars pretty tough to conduct.

Not only is Marvel fooling fans by giving us scenes in trailers that might not even happen, but they’re also fooling their cast, because apparently they’ve filmed dummy scenes and not everyone was given a full script.

Knowing that getting any real details about Endgame is virtually impossible, some interviewers have given up asking much about the new film altogether and have instead asked about 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. That was the case when Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo revealed to Yahoo! that he filmed a scene for the 2018 film where he lived, and one where he died.

“I didn’t know until I saw the movie,” Ruffalo said of his character’s fate in Infinity War. “For one take, I did disappear, and then the other one I didn’t.”

Considering that Ruffalo, along with fellow Avenger Tom Holland, is known for accidentally dropping spoilers, it would make sense that the Russo brothers would leave him wondering what happened to his character.

“It’s like Survivor," Ruffalo said, noting that he was pretty sure he was going to be turned to dust like so many of his co-stars. "It’s like: Who’s gonna get kicked off the island? And I probably should’ve ... It’s like Project Runway for leakers.”

We can’t wait to find out how Hulk and the remaining heroes will avenge their fallen brothers and sisters when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.

Mark Hamill Confirmed How He'll Be Returning in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

We can always count on Mark Hamill to give us some early intel on the next Star Wars movie—whether the studios like it or not. And earlier this week, the 67-year-old actor came through for us yet again.

While attending the Child’s Play premiere, the Associated Press asked Hamill about The Rise of Skywalker and whether he would be involved in the final film in the Skywalker Saga. Hamill confirmed that he would indeed be making an appearance, and shed new light on how.

When asked if this would be his final appearance in the Star Wars franchise, Hamill replied, “I sure hope so,” before elaborating, “I had closure in [The Last Jedi]. The fact that I’m involved in any capacity is only because of that peculiar aspect of the Star Wars mythology where if you’re a Jedi, you get to come back and make a curtain call as a Force ghost.”

The fact that Hamill will appear as a Force ghost doesn’t come as a big shock to fans, as most have been convinced that was the only way he could return to the franchise. (He did die in the previous film, The Last Jedi, after all.) However, suspicious fans have been speculating about other ways he could come back, with some using promotional photos as possible evidence that Luke will be resurrected.

Despite knowing a major part of Luke Skywalker’s return in The Rise of Skywalker, we still have plenty of questions. We’ll just have to wait until the film debuts on December 20 to find everything out.

Fans Are Rallying for Macaulay Culkin to Play Joker in The Batman

After months of speculation, it was only recently announced that Robert Pattinson will be the next actor to don the Dark Knight's iconic cape in Matt Reeves's upcoming film The Batman. Unsurprisingly, the response to the casting news was mixed.

While it’s believed The Batman will center around a younger version of Bruce Wayne than we’ve seen previously, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding other major plot points—including which villains will be included, and who will play them.

We Got This Covered reports that various DC characters are being rumored to appear in the film, including Penguin, Catwoman, Riddler, Firefly, Two-Face, and the Mad Hatter. But fans are desperate to know if the most notable Batman villain will be included on the roster: the Joker.

Though there has been no mention of the Joker in conversations surrounding the new film, that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill—nor has it prevented fans from offering up their ideas on who could nail the iconic role, and Macaulay Culkin is apparently at the top of the list.

The former child star has not commented on the validity of the rumors, but many DC fans are on board with it, including digital artist Bryan Zapp who created an image of what Culkin would look like as the Joker.

Meanwhile, Todd Phillips's Joker, a standalone film focusing on the villain’s origin story and starring Joaquin Phoenix, is set to hit theaters on October 4.

Although it could get confusing, The Batman will be part of the DCEU, while Joker will not live in the shared universe, which means there could very well be two portrayals of the same character at the same time. Whether or not Culkin would take on the role—or if there will be a Joker at all—is only up for speculation right now.
