Bruce Banner Becomes The Thanos Expert After Encountering The Mad Titan Before Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel fans might be anticipating the meet-up between the Avengers and Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems like Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) may have already met the Mat Titan himself in his adventures outside Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America  (Chris Evans) Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the rest of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Screen Rant recently spoke with Ruffalo on the set of Infinity War, and during the interview, the Marvel star revealed that Bruce is actually the most knowledgeable when it comes to Thanos.

“Banner knows more about Thanos than probably anybody and he’s really trying to impress on everybody how dangerous he is. It’s a little bit of a Chicken Little (scenario). He comes in screaming bloody murder… He’s seen what damage he can cause and how powerful he is and the entire group is in disarray so he’s also getting caught up on what’s happened here and is trying to get them to transcend their differences and impress upon them how much danger they’re actually facing.”

Banner’s expertise on Thanos might come as a surprise. If anyone’s an expert on Thanos, then it might be his daughters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). However, it’s likely that Banner gains knowledge of Thanos right before the beginning of Infinity War, at the moment where Thanos ship cuts right between the Asgardian’s travel to earth in the post-credits scene of Thor: Ragnarok.

That, or you know, Hulk’s been listening to stories of Thanos in Sakaar.

Avengers: Infinity War premieres April 27.
