In the screenplay for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, Bill Nye the Science Guy would’ve received a shoutout courtesy of one Professor Hulk.
Marvel Studios released the screenplay for Avengers: Endgame as part of the film’s awards season campaign for consideration at the Oscars among other awards honoring this year in cinema. The screenplay revealed some unused dialogue from the film in page 35, in which we see Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in a humorous conversation with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man. Here, Hulk name-drops Bill Nye as one of his friends:
SMART HULK: I have seven PhD’s, an MD, the Hans Bethe Award for Physics, and I’m personal friends with Bill Nye the Science Guy. We’re good.
SCOTT LANG: Yeah. And you look like that on purpose.
This scene in which Hulk name-drops Bill Nye takes place during some of the first time travel tests with the Quantum Realm at the Avengers Compound in which ends up aging older and younger before Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man returns with his methods of time travel to introduce.
Bill Nye is widely recognized for his educational television program Bill Nye the Science Guy which was on the air from 1993-1999. He also had a series on Netflix, Bill Nye Saves the World. Seeing that the screenplay placed Bill Nye in the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s interesting to imagine how his interactions with the Hulk must’ve been like. Bill Nye was likely more familiar with Dr. Bruce Banner in his human form and rarely saw him Hulk out, but one can only imagine what type of television programs Bill Nye would’ve hosted given the involvement of many otherworldly entities in the MCU.
Here is the official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Endgame is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
