“Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
-Mark Ruffalo, upon first seeing the Science Bros internet phenomena
For a fuller and more hilarious comment, look here for the complete Vulture interview
Yesterday, I was doing some physics, got bored, and so decided to google “science bros”, as I wanted to know what type of stuff is up on the internet right now…
First thing that comes up was the interview above, which had me giggling and admiring Mark Ruffalo’s enthusiasm, as well as his immediate captioning of images. Then, I just had to see what type of stuff came up as gifs and images, so I hopped on tumblr, and was bombarded with a slew of everything Science Bros…and quote a bit of Sherlock and Watson, for some reason?
So I thought I should show some evidence of my foray – here a few of my favourites, including the after credits scene of Iron Man 3
On The Relationship Between Tony Stark and Bruce Banner
“One of the first things Robert said when we were meeting about the movie was “There’s no way Tony Stark gets in a room with Bruce Banner and doesn’t poke him”. There’s no way. He wants to see it happen, he wants to see how that guy works. And that is not only true, not only ended up in the movie but ultimately informs their entire arc, which is one of my favourite things in the movie. The idea that Tony Stark is not intimidated by the concept of the Hulk and, in fact, thinks that Bruce needs to embrace his inner Hulk as it were, sounds like pure classic Tony irresponsibility and in fact it is you know what save us all because and ultimately what saves Tony because he allows Bruce to…he sets him up and lets him gets to the place where he can decide to be the Hulk.”

Have You Heard About Tumblr?
The After-Credit Scene of Iron Man 3
I hadn’t seen this before – I think it must be an Avengers deleted scene or something? I don’t quite know what it’s doing in the science bros section either, but I like it!
