Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo has reacted to Boris Johnson's comments in which he compared the UK leaving the EU to the green superhero.
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, the prime minister said Hulk "always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be".
But Hollywood star Mark said the Hulk "only fights for the good of the whole".
"Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive," he added.
In the interview, Boris Johnson had said he was willing to ignore the vote in the House of Commons which ordered him to delay the UK's departure from the EU.
"The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets," he said.
In a tweet, US actor Mark - who played the Hulk for 12 years - reminded the prime minister that the character "works best when he is in unison with a team".
"Plus...he's always got Dr Banner with science and reason."
Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole. Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive. The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus...he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason. pic.twitter.com/jN8BDzgpWl— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) September 15, 2019
The prime minister is meeting European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Monday.
He's expected to say he wants to secure a Brexit deal by 18 October, after a key EU summit.
But if that's not possible he will "reject any delay offered" and leave with no deal on 31 October.
Mr Johnson's comments about the Hulk ahead of the meeting got the meme treatment on social media - of course.

Some Labour MP's weren't too impressed with the comparison though.
This is the kind of thing my kids would say aside from they would never make such glaring errors about The Hulk, I've raised them properly. https://t.co/2kndAagYv9— Jess Phillips Esq., M.P. (@jessphillips) September 14, 2019
The Hulk is a an uncontrollable and frankly mindless destructive force his saving grace is his alter-ego the gentle and brilliant Bruce Banner. If Boris Johnson wants to be the Hulk then Parliament must be Bruce Banner https://t.co/i6I2iJkK5V— (((Alex Sobel MP))) (@alexsobel) September 14, 2019
But others within Mr Johnson's party approved of his comment.
"The Hulk was a winner and was extremely popular," Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay told Sky News.
"I'd rather be backing a character and a leader who is the Hulk than one who is on the Chicken Run, as Jeremy Corbyn is."
