Actors across Hollywood are the ones who suffer when people illegally film a movie and either stream it online or chuck it on a dodgy DVD and sell it to people who can't wait for it to premiere in their country.
But it seems as though Mark Ruffalo is on the bad side, after he accidentally left his Instagram Live continue in his pocket while he watched the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok. While some people who accidentally butt-dial a contact will notice their mistake after a few seconds, Mark's live streaming went on for a whopping 10 minutes.
Thousands of people were watching the blank screen but the audio was still clear enough.
Naturally, people lost their shit.
One person wrote: "I can't believe Mark Ruffalo live streamed the beginning of Thor: Ragnarok he is truly Marvel's worst nightmare."
Another said: "Honestly Mark Ruffalo just made my whole week by accidentally staying on live during the Thor premiere. Don't fire him Marvel we need him."
While a third person was really worried about his job security commented: "Y'all Mark Ruffalo is live on Instagram whilst the film is on. This time he's really gonna get fired."
A very sheepish Mark has posted to Facebook, saying: "All kidding aside... I'm sorry Marvel. Can I have my phone back
Marvel tries incredibly hard to prevent its actors from leaking too many details before one of their epic movies is released. That was pretty easy back in the day when it was something like the Tobey Maguire Spiderman, which didn't have a big cast. But now, with the Marvel Universe expanding with every franchise, there are now plenty of actors to make studio executive's jobs harder to ensure they remain tight lipped.
Mark Ruffalo nearly revealed a spoiler for the new Avengers: Infinity War movie on Good Morning America in July. His co-star Don Cheadle had to shut Ruffalo down as he was saying that everyone dies.
He's not the only one who can't be trusted with secrets, the youngest actor in the ever growing list of Marvel superheroes, Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) was given zero details about the film.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, he said: "I don't know anything about it or what it's about. I know who the villain is, but that's it. They don't let me read anything because I'm so bad at keeping secrets."
Even though Mark Ruffalo gave a few details away about Thor: Ragnarok, it's not too much to spoil the whole movie. It's set four years after the events of Thor: The Dark World, when the title character was held captive on the planet Sakaar without his infamous hammer.
He now must win a gladiatorial duel against The Hulk in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarok - the doom of the Asgardian civilisation.
It will be released around the world from October 27.
