Mark Ruffalo Responds to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Hulk Comparison

Avengers: Endgame star Mark Ruffalo -- the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Hulk -- has responded to U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson comparing himself to the character in a Daily Mail interview. In the interview Johnson declared his intent to "break free of the [European Union] like the Incredible Hulk."

In a tweet referencing the quote, Ruffalo wrote, "Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole. Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus... he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason."
