For all the movie, tv show, anime, manga, and cosplaying fans out there, the New York Comic Con is practically the closest thing to heaven. It’s a four-day event where people get the chance to interact with fellow fans, with their favorite actors, watch exclusive trailers for upcoming movies and TV shows, and cosplay their favorite characters to their heart’s desire.
Among the celebrities attending this year, were Jason Momoa and Mark Ruffalo, and they had quite the amazing encounter.
Now, seeing as a huge number of people attend ComicCon dressed in costumes and masks, no one would give a second glance to a guy wearing a Grunkle Stan mask, which is a character from the Disney cartoon, “Gravity Falls”.
But I suppose that if people knew that the man behind the mask is none other than Mark Ruffalo, then they would have paid more attention. So, donning that Grunkle Stan mask, Ruffalo, who portrays Hulk, approached Momoa, who stars as Aquaman in the titular movie, to take a “fan” picture with him, giving us a collision between Marvel and DC.
Momoa posted a video on his Instagram where he is seen posing for pictures with someone in the Gravity Falls character mask before the other person removes it and reveals himself to be Ruffalo. Then the two share a hug as they crack up.
The Aquaman star captioned the video on Instagram: “Incognito at #NYCC. Grunkle Stan had some fun today. A big thanks to the fans, @javitscenter, and Comic-Con! #gravityfalls.”

Momoa was in the convention to promote the upcoming “Aquaman”, which has already let out a trailer. The movie was directed by James Wan, and stars Nicole Kidman, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Patrick Wilson, alongside Momoa, who will portray Arthur Curry as he seeks to find where he belongs in two different worlds. It will be released on December 21.
Ruffalo, on the other hand, will be appearing as Hulk for the last time in MCU in “Avengers 4”. The latest addition in the franchise will be released next year and so far, nothing is known about the plot. Excepts for a small spoiler Ruffalo let slip on “The Tonight Show”, which he might have gotten in trouble over.
