Jimmy Fallon Tries to Force ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Spoilers from Mark Ruffalo Using a Lie Detector Test
It’s safe to say that Mark Ruffalo has earned a bit of a reputation when it comes to leaking spoilers to his upcoming films.
In 2017, during a screening of Thor: Ragnarok, Ruffalo unknowingly live-streamed the audio to the first ten minutes of the film to his entire fanbase before realizing his error. In 2018, co-star Don Cheadle revealed that Ruffalo had actually let slip a major spoiler for the end of Avengers: Infinity War during a press interview for Good Morning America. Naturally, now that marketing for Avengers: Endgame is kicking into high gear, Marvel fans will be keeping a close eye on Ruffalo for any hints, slips, and spoilers, and Jimmy Fallon is here to help.
Ruffalo stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, and while he was there, Fallon took extreme measure to try and press him for Endgame info. In the below clip, Jimmy Fallon hooks Ruffalo up to a working lie detector machine, complete with shocking pulse readers, before pressing the Hulk actor for everything he knows about the upcoming film.
Fallon starts out easy asking Ruffalo if his name is Mark Ruffalo; if he’s sitting in a chair; and if he’s dressed like a tiny leprechaun to which Ruffalo grievingly replies, “I don’t want to get fired again.” Fallon then begins to dig deep with his questions. He asks Ruffalo to confirm really specific, spoiler-laced details such as, “is the Hulk secretly a shape-shifting alien known as a Skrull?”
Ruffalo does his best to avoid answering all but one question. When asked if Don Cheadle is sexier than him, Ruffalo answers, “Yes,” which registers as the truth. The whole sketch is pretty hilarious, and Marvel fans love seeing Ruffalo continuing to poke fun at his loose-lips and spoiler-ific ways.
