Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter this morning to wish his Avengers: Endgame co-star Chris Evans a happy birthday.
Avengers: Endgame may have been the final time we see certain characters together on screen. Following the departure of fan-favorite characters like Black Widow, Iron Man and Captain America, many fans are heartbroken. With three of the original six Avengers now gone, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its fanbase are in a mourning period.
However, in the real world, it seems that the Avengers cast is feeling very positive. While it is upsetting to see such a great cast go theirseparate ways, it is always comforting to see that the cast members still care for one another. Recently, Marvel fans celebrated Chris Evans’ birthday, sending him wishes on social media. However, it isn’t just the fans celebrating as Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo jumped on Twitter to wish his longtime friend and co-star a happy birthday. You can check out the tweet below!

The camaraderie of the two actors is really something special. Having worked on four films together and seen each other fully come into their own, it is very nice to see that the Marvel family is stronger than ever. It seems that despite Chris Evans having departed the franchise, they are just as good of friends as they had been before.
While Chris Evans may have hung up the shield, the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has a place for Mark Ruffalo and the Hulk. Having seen Mark Ruffalo’s turn as Professor Hulk in Avengers: Endgame, there are now new possibilities for his character. Previously the Hulk was a dangerous, destructive force to be feared, but now it seems Professor Hulk may play a bigger role in the MCU moving forward.
One aspect of the Hulk that fans want to see is his relationship with Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross. After Ross was reintroduced to the MCU in Captain America: Civil War, fans have been dying to see the character and Bruce Banner share the screen. However, one of the most prominent ideas that fans have been pushing for is the introduction of the Thunderbolts.
The Thunderbolts team is Marvel’s equivalent of the Suicide Squad. Many have speculated that Ross’ re-introduction was a precursor to him putting together the Thunderbolts and leading them the way he does in the comics. Additionally, fans are hoping that Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner will play a role in the Thunderbolts movie, with many hoping that somehow Ross will become more like his comic book counterpart and transform into the Red Hulk.
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.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
