The Hulk depicter unintentionally streamed some dialogues from the third 'Thor' film from the Los Angeles premiere when he forgot to turn off his Instagram live.
Ruffalo went live on the social media site earlier that evening to give fans a closer look at the red carpet. He then appeared to put his phone in his pocket while the app was still running, with more than 200 of his online devotees being on the stream.
The screen went black, but fans could still hear some dialogues from the film playing. The lucky fans were listening to the dialogues for about 10 to 15 minutes of the audio, with some of them commenting on how long it would take before the actor ended the broadcast.
Ruffalo and some of the premiere attendees could be heard laughing on the livestream, before he stopped the broadcast at around 8:15 P.M. It's unclear if he shut the app down after knowing it's still running or if it cut out on its own. The live feed didn't appear to drop major spoilers of the film.
Reacting to the accident, some fans took to Twitter to poke fun at Ruffalo. "@MarkRuffalo i think you accidentally spoiled the movie and Marvel is judging you from afar now," one fan tweeted, along with a GIF of Amanda Bynes laughing.
"mark ruffalo what are you doing HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAH," another wrote, one other said, "lol mark ruffalo forgot to turn his ig live off so he spoiled some parts of the movie."

There's also someone who pointed out that "Mark Ruffalo is gonna get in trouble again," adding a series of face with tears of joy emojis. "Marvel is gonna whoop Mark Ruffalo's ass," another similarly wrote.

The accident aside, "Thor: Ragnarok" is the first of a three-part story arc for The Hulk in the MCU, said Ruffalo to Cinema Blend. It will continue into "Avengers: Infinity War" and beyond, although further details are still scarce.
"So basically, Kevin [Feige] pulled me aside before this, and said, 'If you were gonna do a... if we were going to do a standalone Hulk movie, what would it be?' And I said, 'I think it should be this, this, this, and this and this, and ends up like this.' And he's like, 'I love that. Why don't we do that in the next three movies, starting with 'Thor 3' and then we go into 'Avengers 3' and 4.' And I was like, 'That sounds great!' And so we are at the beginning of this arc," the actor explained.
He also revealed that The Hulk finally speaking in "Thor: Ragnarok" is a "key part" of the planned three-film arc. "Hulk speaking is the start to separating of these two individuals, these identities in this split-identity person, and where that's going to end up going," he said. "So it was really interesting to me. He's like a baby! He's like a five year old or six year old. So he has the same syntax, he has the same world view, and so it was fun. It's like Chris [Hemsworth] - we all got to reinvent our characters in this."
Directed by Taika Waititi, "Thor: Ragnarok" opens in the United States on November 3. Chris Hemsworth is back as the God of Thunder, Tom Hiddleston returns as Loki, Idris Elba is back as Heimdall and Anthony Hopkins once again plays Odin. Benedict Cumberbatch will make a cameo as Doctor Strange, while Tessa Thompson will play new character Valkyrie.
