Despite the fact that Mark Ruffalo was only talking about the need to resolve the complex issue of Natasha and Bruce Banner's romantic relationship in Infinity War as recently as Match ("Whether it’s requited or unrequited, I don’t imagine that’s gonna go away any time soon in one iteration or another”), they're definitely over.

So says Joe Russo, who spoke at a Q&A to confirm that their dynamic was a "Joss Whedon decision" that he couldn't "speak to."

"I think Joss was trying to find interesting ways of pairing up the characters and create dynamics between them. I know it seems a generally unpopular choice. You know, you can't win them all."

And he the dropped the revelation that despite their loaded look when they were reunited, they're not in that place any more.

"Look, he disappeared for two years. She's pretty self-sufficient, she didn't wait around for him. There's sort of unspoken truth that there's need to be a spoken resolution."

So stop making zucchini jokes, ok?
