Avengers: Endgame brought the story of the Hulk to a close. Looking back, Mark Ruffalo says his favorite moment from making that story goes all the way back to his first time playing the character. Ruffalo appeared as a guest at Toyko Comic Con. During his panel, revealed his favorite moment from his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "When we shoot the Marvel films we're like a family," Ruffalo said. "And there's a lot of laughter and we eat a lot of food. My favorite, probably, scene is when we were eating shwarma at the end of the first Avengers movie."
That moment, the post-credits scene, was a hit with fans when Avengers debuted in 2012. It cemented the ability of Marvel Studios to marry an epic plot like the Avengers assembling for the first time to understated humor.
Ruffalo debuted as the Hulk in Marvel's The Avengers. He replaced The Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton in the role. From there, the Hulk a tumultuous journey through Marvel's Infinity Saga. Banner struggled at first with the monster inside of him. He later learned to control the Hulk, at least up to a point. That changed when he went into outer space and the Hulk took complete control. Taking a beating from Thanos sent the Hulk into hiding, leaving Banner alone for a time. After the snap, Banner and the Hulk learned to be a single being and they did it in time to undo the damage wrought by Thanos. The Hulk even became one of the Marvel universe's most trusted and adored superheroes.
