The latest updates and spoilers for "Avengers: Infinity War" reveal that Bruce Banner will fight his Hulk persona during the events of the movie. Atlanta Filming tweeted a photo of Mark Ruffalo's character being strangled by a giant foam hand as Tony Stark looks on. This could mean that the Hulk is fighting for control of Bruce's body and wants to be set free.

'Agents of SHIELD' executive producers Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen Whedon confirmed that Avengers characters will not appear in the TV series.

Fighting for control

Bruce Banner will return to Earth following Thanos' attack of Thor's ship after the events of "Thor: Ragnarok." He somehow ends up in Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum and he is reunited with Iron Man.

Thanos prepares his forces for an invasion of the planet.

The tweeted image might indicate that Bruce is still struggling to control his Hulk persona as the gamma-powered monster is trying to take over Bruce's body and be his own person like he did in Sakaar. Hulk will join the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes to defend the world from the Mad Titan as he begins his quest to collect the Infinity Stones.

Thanos will use the Black Order and the Outriders to search the globe for the Time, Mind, and Soul Stones. Ebony Maw will attack Doctor Strange, while Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight capture Vision. The Outriders will attack Wakanda as Black Panther's army and Captain America's team are ready to defend the African nation.

No Avengers in 'Agents of SHIELD'

Executive producers Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen Whedon shared their thoughts about the Avengers appearing in "Agents of SHIELD," telling Screenrant that audiences should not expect any appearances from Cap, Iron Man, or Thor in the show. Jed Whedon explained that they wanted "Agents of SHIELD" to be grounded and they based it on Phil Coulson coming back from the dead to try and save the world from the shadows without attracting the attention of Cap or Tony Stark.

"Our entire show is based on a man coming back to life, and so from the beginning, it was very grounded," Jed Whedon said. "Out of the gate, it was not all heroes or super."

The Marvel TV show helped connect certain events from the movies such as "Iron Man 3," "Winter Soldier," "Age of Ultron," and "Civil War." For now, the series is in its fifth season and it will feature Coulson and his team in outer space as they try to come back home and escape the Kree.

"Avengers: Infinity War" will hit theaters on May 4, 2018.
