Mark Ruffalo Advises Actors to do Indie Films so there is Actual Competition

Actor Mark Ruffalo, who plays Hulk in the MCU, is encouraging his fellow actors to pursue smaller independent films following the SAG/AFTRA strike resolution. Ruffalo recently took to social media to share his thoughts on the work stoppage saying, “How about we all jump into indies now? Content creators create a film & TV-making system alongside the studio & streaming networks? So there is actual competition.”

Ruffalo said that Hollywood has created an “empire of billionaires” and that actors should unify to “organize a new world for workers.” Ruffalo added, “While they hang out in the billionaire boy summer camps laughing like fat cats, we organize a new world for workers. One sure way to strengthen our hand right now is to become very supportive & friendly to all independent projects immediately. Push every SAG-AFTRA member to join the ones that get SAG-AFTRA (WGA) WAIVERS immediately. The studios have no competition—this will change that.”

Ruffalo is not the first actor to go after studio heads and executives. Sean Gunn, fellow cast member of the MCU spoke directly to Disney CEO Bob Iger just yesterday. Gunn went on to attack Iger by saying, “I think that when Bob Iger talks about what a shame it [the strike] is, he needs to remember, in 1980, CEOs like him made 30 times what their lowest worker was making. Now, Bob Iger makes 400 times what his lowest worker is, and I think that’s a f—— shame, Bob — and maybe you should take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, why is that?

More actors will continue to come forward against in the coming days and weeks. We anticipate the rhetoric to only become more inflammatory as the strike drags on.
