The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ actor admits during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on ‘The Tonight Show’ that he was afraid he could not make the role his own given his cinematic background.

AceShowbizMark Ruffalo was hesitant to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he wasn’t sure how he could make the role of “The Hulk” his own.

The 52-year-old actor told Jimmy Fallon during “The Tonight Show” on Friday, May 08, that it was co-star Robert Downey Jr. who convinced him to accept the offer, admitting, “I was scared.”

“I didn’t know what I could add to what I already thought had been done so well before me.”

Explaining his hesitation, Mark revealed he was only doing “indie movies up ’til that point. 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.’ “
