SPOILER WARNING: The following story contains possible spoilers for "Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We had a few big questions regarding the next big Marvel Studios blockbuster following the release of the first "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer -- and it looks like Mark Ruffalo may have just given us an answer.
In a set interview with IGN, the man behind the green beast touched upon Bruce Banner's possible relationship with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.
"Uhhh, we don't have a relation -- What kind of relationship?" Ruffalo initially responded, unsure of what details had already been revealed. " [To Disney representative] Did you tell them that? Okay, I'll play. I'll play along. Yeah, yeah. There's a really important relationship between ... [Laughs] I was just happy that I was in the movie at all! And any scenes that I got to be with [Johansson] were ... a big bonus."
Ruffalo may have played it coy, but one scene in the "Age of Ultron" trailer supports the idea that Bruce and Natasha could be more than just teammates. In one quick scene, Black Widow can be seen going palm-to-palm with the Hulk as she possibly attempts to calm him down. This marks a drastic change from their relationship in 2012's "Marvel's The Avengers," when her initial altercation with the green behemoth left her rattled and shaking in the depths of the crashing Helicarrier.
All questions will possibly be answered when "Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens on May 1, 2015.
