Talk about a super gathering! Mark Ruffalo can't resist giving fans a glimpse of how Marvel Studios is planning to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The actor, who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk, posted a pair of Facebook live videos on Saturday teasing a gigantic photoshoot supposedly gathering together all of the stars of the MCU.

While not every actor is visible, the shaky footage does reveal a who's who of Marvel heavyweights. Among them: Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Paul Bettany (Vision), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Vin Diesel (Groot), Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), and the two Benedicts from Dr. Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) and Benedict Wong (Wong).

Also on hand were several of MCU's go-to directors, including brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War), Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), and Ryan Coogler (Black Panther).

Of course, one can imagine the headache Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and the rest of his team must have had just trying to get everybody together in the same room. But the iconic spread is meant not only to look back at the MCU's first decade but also to tease future movies. These include Phase Three's forthcoming Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled follow-up.

"I sense there's a day that's gonna come where you're gonna see Groot and Hulk," Diesel joked to the camera in full Groot voice as he and Ruffalo grunted and made fists in approval.

The clip ends with Ruffalo being told he's not supposed to be broadcasting (probably a bad idea, as they won't like him when he's angry).

He later posted a second Facebook Live video in which he and Lilly wished fans well and showed off a few more MCU icons, including Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), and the man who started it all, Mr. Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., who blew the camera a kiss.
