Robert Downey Jr And ‘Avengers’ Cast Ready To Rumble With Stingy Marvel Over Sequel Money And Strong-Arming→


Vulture tells Mark Ruffalo about Science Bros. Mark loves it, plans to call RDJ about it.

From Vulture:

Does that mean he’s never heard of “Science Bros,” an Internet subculture celebrating the friendship of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, the characters Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. played in The Avengers?

“No, what is that?” he asked.

And then the giggles began.

  • “Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
  • “So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” he asked. “Like tinged with … ” Yup. “That’s cute!” 
  • Is he now a Science Bros shipper, then? “Yeah! I love it; it’s awesome,” Ruffalo enthused. “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.”
  • Ruffalo couldn’t wait to drop his newfound knowledge bomb on Downey Jr. “I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”

MTV:  The Avengers DVD/Blu-ray exclusive:  On Robert Downey Jr.—

Joss Whedon

"Robert, he’s kind of like the leader of the band. He’s the guy who just wants to takes things in hand and make everyone comfortable, bring in the new guys, bring it all together, and be at the center of it. And he does it beautifully."

Chris Hemsworth

"He started it all.  He’s kind of like the Godfather of the Avengers in a sense."

Mark Ruffalo

"He was the first person I called when they offered it to me.  I knew that in his presence I would be in really good hands."

Tom Hiddleston

"I remember watching ‘Iron Man’ when I was doing a television job in Sweden and I absolutely loved it.  And cut to three years later and I’m in a scene with Iron Man.  I’m a huge tennis fan and kept saying it’s like playing tennis with Roger Federer.  He makes you look good."
