One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's founding Avengers, Mark Ruffalo, has shared a video showing a young fan's enthusiastic reaction to Hulk's first smash in The Avengers.
Originally posted by the two-year-old's father, the video shows the toddler pointing at the screen and gasping in awe as Ruffalo's Hulk wreaks havoc on screen for the very first time. Ruffalo jokingly responded to the video in his own tweet captioned, "The secret way of stopping Dr. Banner from turning into the Hulk."
In under a week's time, the video has accumulated nearly 8 million views and has garnered replies from other famous actors such as Lou Ferringo, who played the raging green monster in 1978's TV series, The Incredible Hulk.

Mark Ruffalo first appeared as Bruce Banner (aka Hulk) in 2012's The Avengers. The actor originally replaced Edward Norton (The Incredible Hulk), who left the role due to creative differences with Marvel Studios. Ruffalo has most recently appeared as Dr. Bruce Banner in Avengers: Endgame and has yet to announce if he will be reprising his role as the character anytime soon.
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers saw Earth's Mightiest Heros assemble for the very first time in order to stop Loki's plan of world domination. The film released in theaters during the summer of 2012 and concluded Phase 1 of the MCU.
