Avengers 4 star Mark Ruffalo is hoping directors Joe and Anthony Russo will reconsider their response to his "spoiling" the film's title on The Tonight Show.
The actor, who's played Bruce Banner and the Hulk since 2012's The Avengers, poked fun at his own propensity for dropping spoilers during his Friday visit to the talk show, on which he purported to reveal key details, including the title -- all censored for the broadcast. The next day, the Russo brothers "fired" him on Twitter.
On Sunday, Ruffalo responded, tweeting to the filmmakers, "Guys... can we talk about this?"

Ruffalo has a bit of a history with spoilers, having inadvertently revealed the ending to Avengers: Infinity War in 2017, and accidentally livestreamed the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok with the phone in his pocket. His Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars have joked that Ruffalo and Tom Holland are, by far, the worst with spoilers, while Benedict Cumberbatch is so good at keeping secrets that he was the only actor to receive the full script for Avengers: Infinity War.
By running the censored audio of Ruffalo's Tonight Show appearance through Adobe Audition, one fan was able to discern what may be "The Last Avenger" as the title for the Infinity War sequel. However, it seems unlikely the actor would reveal the actual title of the film for a gag.
