Most actors in the movie werenot allowedto read the full script — instead only getting the scenes they had to film. But for Ruffalo, the studio had to take things one step further: They gave him afakescript to throw him off.

“I’ve been dying to see it,” he said. “We had a chance to see it yesterday, but I held off, because I want to see it with an audience. I want to be in that experience with you guys.”

Entertainment Tonight also spoke with the film’s directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, who explained why keeping secrets from actors like Ruffalo is actually a big favor to them:

It’s like doing them a favor, because it’s hard to keep secrets, it’s hard to keep your mouth closed. We spend all day, everyday, doing this for like, the past couple years. So it’s hard not to talk about what you spend all your time doing. It’s a little bit of a mercy we give them by not giving them too much information.
