Mark Ruffalo is rooting for his fellow Avengers, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, ahead of the Wandavision series premiere. In a tweet, the actor took a look at the couple about the new show and offered a sweet message to congratulate them.
Mark Ruffalo starred with ‘Wandavision’ stars Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen in several films
Ruffalo is best known for playing Dr. Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk, in five Marvel films (seven if you count his post-credits scenes in Iron Man 3 and Captain Marvel). He has worked with Bettany and Olsen in several films, including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Infinity War.
And Ruffalo admits he has a connection to Bettany’s character, Vision. As reported by Comic Book, at a fan panel for C2E2, the actor said he would have loved to have played Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if it weren’t for the Hulk.
“I’ve always loved Vision,” Ruffalo said. “He looked like the last superhero in a way. It flies, it has to do so much. It’s very diverse and not used enough, I think. I have a relationship with him because he is so much like my baby. ”
Like Bettany and Olsen, Ruffalo also brings her superhero to the small screen. The actor returns as Bruce Banner in the upcoming Disney + Marvel series, She-Hulk, with Tatiana Maslany in the title role.
