There's A Whole Scene About How The Hulk Can't Have Sex
Before Bruce Banner transformed into Mark Ruffalo, he was all Edward Norton-y in The Incredible Hulk. Marvel's second entry in its cinematic universe has been largely forgotten, which means that a key piece of information about the Hulk has also been left by the wayside. We are, of course, talking about Bruce's awkward sex life. When we first meet Dr. Banner, he's working in a Brazilian bottling plant. Because this scrawny weirdo is apparently irresistible to women, his attractive co-worker keeps mentally undressing him. Banner actively ignores her, which seems kind of odd.

If you didn't turn the movie off and hurl your TV through a window out of boredom, later on, this makes sense. After Bruce reunites with his ex-girlfriend Betty Ross, the two eventually end up in bed together -- again, because this whiny dude meets women like a character in an Axe Body Spray commercial. It's almost the most explicit love scene in an MCU movie.
Universal Pictures... For now.
That is, until Bruce's heart rate monitor starts beeping, causing him to pull back and remark that he "can't get too excited." Yup, Bruce can't get it on because he's likely to turn into a giant green rage monster and crush Liv Tyler to death. For some reason, Marvel thought they needed to include an entire scene explaining why the Hulk has to remain celibate, lest the kids in the audience lose sleep over it. Though at least this might explain why Bruce is "always angry."
Dr. Selvig Strips Naked And Yells At Tourists
Although he was portrayed as a dignified genius in Thor, the sequel Thor: The Dark World bizarrely reintroduces us to astrophysicist Dr. Erik Selvig by having him streak at Stonehenge. You might think this is all part of some kind of ancient druid ritual, but then we learn he's been harassing tourists.
