But from the view of it being part of the MCU, it didn't make sense. There wasn't even a brief mention. This is one of the Catch 22's of having a shared universe.

Though the Banner bit was good.

My cousin had me laughing bring up how the Iron Man armor can take hit from Thor's hammer yet falls to pieces when it hits a piece of construction equipment. But I chalked that up to the new armor having a different density than the previous ones. Nitpicky stuff of course.

I hope they explain that in the TV series.
