Mark Ruffalo isnt the most discreet when it comes to spoilers – he even managed to give away the ending to Infinity War before it had hit cinemas.
So we wouldnt be shocked if the backpack he just lost was holding the script, in 24 point type, to Avengers 4.
The actor has lost his backpack in New York City, leading to fans a) trying to reunite him with his belongings and b) roasting him for his carelessness.
Mark, 51, tweeted: New Yorkers that I love so much, please help me find my backpack… I left my black w/ red trim Topo backpack in a yellow cab tonight (looks like the one in the pic) in UWS of NYC with no way to contact the cab & dont know the #. Reward if found.

And instantly, the mockery began:
How many spoilers did you leave in the bag, Mark?

Does it have the title of Avengers 4 in it?

The NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission has been in touch with Mark over Twitter, so hopefully the actor is reunited with his possessions soon – and before the Russo brothers strangle him.
Along with Tom Holland, Ruffalo is a bit of a liability when it comes to Avengers spoilers, and directors Anthony and Joe Russo are pretty much done with the pairs loose lips.
Ahead of the show airing, Mark tweeted: @JimmyFallon, I trust that you will cut my spoiler slip on the show tonight. That was “off the record” homey. Please dont get me in trouble with Marvel (Barry) again. DM me back. M.
Alas, Jimmy responded: Dude, its too late – already sent the final show to Burbank for air. Are you sure youre gonna be in trouble? We could maybe bleep it out. What is “DM”?
And after seeing this convo, the Russo Brothers chimed in: Mark, youre fired.
It turns out that all of Marks spoilers were actually censored in the final cut of Fallon, simultaneously making us laugh and crushing our dreams.
Ruffalo – who plays Bruce Banner/Hulk in the franchise, said: I sort of, in the past, maybe have given up things, spoilers… I basically spoiled the end of Avengers: Infinity War with Don Cheadle, who will no longer do press with me.
Ive been put under surveillance by Marvel. Theyve got a lot of reach in the world, and Ive learned my lesson.
However, after being pressed by Jimmy, Mark revealed the title of the final Avengers film – before he was bleeped out, with a black box censoring his mouth.
We are getting very close to finding out the actual title, though, with the trailer set to drop any day now – and fans reckon it might be called Annihilation.
