On the other hand, Mark Ruffalo shared an all-cast photo with the original six Avengers from the premiere of Avengers Endgame. He wrote, “Can’t believe it’s been 2 years since the premiere of #AvengersEndgame. Love you all 3000.” He also expressed his excitement about what Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has in store for the fans in the coming days.
Can’t believe it’s been 2 years since the premiere of #AvengersEndgame. Love you all 3000 💚

Interestingly, 3000 though may sound like a generic number in the film but if one adds all the MCU film length up to Endgame then the number is 3000 and therefore the quote. It started trending on Trending soon after the stars went down the memory lane.
After the release of Endgame, Mark Ruffalo had revealed that it was Robert Downey Jr who had convinced him to play Hulk. Ruffalo was on “The Tonight Show” and speaking to the host Jimmy Fallon, when he said it was Downey Jr. who persuaded him to take the offer. His own instinctive reaction was: “I was scared”.
“I didn’t know what I could add to what I already thought had been done so well before me.” The 52-year-old Ruffalo shared that he was hesitant because was only doing “indie movies up ’til that point”, adding: “So I was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m the right person for this.’ And Joss Whedon’s like, ‘Yeah, you are the right person’.”
“Then I got a call from Downey, it must’ve made it to him that I was hemming and hawing, and he just simply said, ‘Ruffalo, let’s go. We got this’. In true ‘Iron Man’ fashion. And then after that, I was like, ‘I guess I have to do it’,” he said.
