Actor Mark Ruffalo really wants to alienate right-of-center movie goers from this Summer’s potential blockbuster, “The Avengers.”
Ruffalo, the far-left actor and activist, is now injecting political messages into the super-superhero film. The film, about a gaggle of comic book characters who unite against a common threat to Earth, should be the kind of box office no-brainer Hollywood craves.
Not if Ruffalo, cast as the Hulk’s alter ego, Bruce Banner, has something to say about it.

“You have all these disparate egos, superheroes in this and that, and they refuse to give up some of their positions in order to make a more perfect union and to join the team,” Ruffalo says.
“That’s really what the whole movie is about: subjugating your own best interest momentarily to further that of the whole,” he says.
Here’s betting the film’s A-list cast didn’t subjugate their own best interests by using one modestly sized trailer or defer their pay to help the less fortunate.
