It’s the Fourth of July, which here in America means that we’re celebrating our Independence Day. Like most years, celebrities all over Twitter are wishing their followers a Happy Fourth of July, but actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe always seem to do it better by incorporating Marvel’s own real American hero in their tweets (and no, I’m not talking about General “Thunderbolt” Ross).
Mark Ruffalo, who plays Dr. Bruce Banner aka The Incredible Hulk, in the MCU films, sent out a tweet today wishing America a Happy Birthday. Included in his tweet is an image of Chris Evans’ Captain America, which seems to be taken from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Here is Ruffalo’s tweet:

The 7 Most Patriotic Heroes To Help Ring In The 4th Of July
Ah, the fourth of July is here at last. Forget the beach and barbecues, kids, if you really want to celebrate this patriotic holiday the right way, head inside and pick up some comic books! Your Uncle Mike might grill-up a mean steak, but Captain America punches Nazis for breakfast. Oh, you want fireworks? Well, go open up literally any comic book and watch the sparks fly as heroes and villains exchange blows.
Comic books are full of diverse characters who stand for all types of different values. Some of them might stand for the values of Communist Russia, like Mark Millar’s Mother Russia, but many of the big two’s most popular characters can be understood as patriotic symbols for the U.S.. Heck, the whole superhero genre as we know it became popular during World War II when we were in dire need of larger-than-life heroes who could inspire us to perform our patriotic duties.
