The last time we saw Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), they were having a budding romance in Avengers: Age of Ultron before being suddenly separated. Now it appears that the duo will reunite in Avengers: Infinity War – but not on great terms.

In an interview for Inside the Actor’s Studio, Johansson hinted that the fictional romance reminded her of her real-life divorce from Romain Dauriac earlier this year:

“I just finished Avengers: Infinity War. The first one. My character has this ongoing relationship with Mark Ruffalo’s character. I had such devastation that day. I don’t know why. I was so devastated. It was something about this character that Mark plays, and this is something that should feel so solid and suddenly doesn’t or there’s… And it reminded me of so much of the things going on in my own life at the time.”

Given that Infinity War features a scene with more than 30 characters, you can’t help but wonder if their doomed (?) romance will get lost in the midst of all the action. Still, we’re rooting for Black Widow and the Jade Giant.
The Hulk will next appear in Thor: Ragnarok, where he will team up with – duh – Thor (Chris Hemsworth), while Black Widow is still waiting for her promised solo movie.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in Singapore on April 26, 2018.
