Mark Ruffalo is causing chaos again after he misunderstood part of a Q&A session and confirms his return in Captain America: Brave New World.

Variety reported that multiple sources have clarified that Mark Ruffalo will not be appearing in the upcoming Marvel film. The incident happened last Sunday during a Q&A session at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Ruffalo was discussing his future career plans with Anne Thompson.

Apparently, Thompson asked if he would have a comeback in 2025’s Captain America: Brave New World, to which the male actor said, “Yeah.”

At first, the female reporter was even concerned if Ruffalo was allowed to share this information: “Are you allowed to talk about that?”

To which Ruffalo answered, “Yeah. It’s going to be great!”

Audiences can skip ahead to the 8:20 mark of the video below to check Ruffalo’s official statement and see the misunderstanding unfold.

Ruffalo was only agreeing to the fact that Captain America: Brave New World is gonna be one of Marvel’s next films.

At least he thought the movie would be awesome.
