'Avengers' Writer Reveals Why Black Widow & Hulk Romance Was Cut From Movies

A fan favorite story line between Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) was cut from Avengers: Infinity War due to a jam-packed plot.

If you remember, the two characters were involved in a romantic story line, but it fizzled out when not much happened between the characters after 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“We certainly tried to [continue the story],” co-writer Stephen McFeely said on the Empire movie podcast. “In ‘Infinity War’ we have scenes — we wrote them, we shot them — of them sort of hashing that out. ‘You’ve been gone, I’ve moved on,’ that kind of stuff. It became very clear that if a scene was not on the ‘A plot,’ it could not survive ‘Infinity War.’ That thing has to be on rails just to get to the finish line. You couldn’t wrap up loose threads just because you wanted to.”
