Mark Ruffalo is apparently the biggest scaredy cat among the original six actors who have been with the “Avengers” franchise since the beginning. Yeah, the Incredible Hulk — the biggest, baddest and toughest of them all — is the reason Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Jeremy Renner’s (Hawkeye) attempt to get a group tattoo was not completely successful.
“The original six got a tattoo because we’ve all been together over the last decade and spend a lot of time together and have a lot of similar shared experiences in life, so we got this symbol that this artist designed for us,” Renner told Jimmy Fallon when he stopped by the ‘Tonight Show” Wednesday.
The tattoo has a symbol representing each of the six members — but not all six got it.
“Ruffalo is the only one that kind of chickened out at the last minute, I’m not sure why,” Renner said. “He just didn’t want to do it. So we said, ‘We’ll get you some henna or something.’ ‘Cause it’s not really about the tattoo, it’s about the celebration of our friendship that’s bonded over the last decade. So we’re on this group text, all of the Avengers –“
Fallon quickly interjected because we all need to appreciate the fact the people who’ve been saving the Marvel Cinematic Universe for 10 years are on a group chain.
“We’re like, Ruffalo, everybody is chiming in on this and I’m like, ‘You know, guys, I have Eric Bana’s number, lemme give him a call. You know, the original Hulk.'”
Wow, Renner, teasing him with going to Bana? That’s rough, but it got rougher when Fallon suggested going to Ed Norton (yet another iteration of the big green guy).
But the crew, of course, forgave Ruffalo, and then they all tattooed their symbol on the artist who inked them instead. Problem solved?

All 58 Theatrically Released Marvel Movies Ranked
Decades of big screen Marvel adaptations demand a long, ranked list. This is that list
This article used to say something like, "It's always a good time to rank all the Marvel movies!" And, well, I guess that means it's an extra good time right now since there's nothing much to do during the coronavirus lockdown, which have resumed this week here in California. In any case, it's also always a good time to argue about which Marvel movies are best and worst, so let's do that.
