The Endgame is nigh.
If you, like me, have watched 22 Marvel movies to get to this point and you, like me, are now so very tired, then you probably also have something in common with the actors who have played the main Avengers cast, lo these many years. It’s clear the original six Avengers all look positively giddy to be mostly done with these roles.
What’s NOT clear is whether the actors gradually became their characters, or if these weirdos were just perfectly cast.
Like, Chris Evans, top left, and Chris Hemsworth, top right, are steady and solid as Captain America and Thor, respectively. The meat and potatoes of the Avengers world, if you will. And then you’ve got Mark Ruffalo, bottom left, doing a handstand, and Robert Downey Jr. grandstanding. Both showing off like Hulk and Iron Man. And Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner are … also there. Just like Black Widow and Hawkeye. (Getty Images photos/Invision/AP)

Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson both accessorized their premier looks with rings and bracelets designed to invoke the infinity gauntlet worn by Avengers baddy Thanos. But they are a full two years too late with this trend! That’s when Nicolas Cage rocked the look on a TIFF red carpet and it makes me think he would be a better choice for the Marvel villain. But I don’t mean he should play Thanos. I mean the villain should BE Nic Cage. (Getty Images photos)
“Babs? It’s me, Diane Keaton. I know we were going shoe shopping, but Nic Cage wanted to do karaoke instead. Now he’s doing ‘Purple Rain.’ No, I KNOW you think ‘The Way We Were’ is better, but he doesn’t have the range! Anyway, whatever you do, don’t buy those hideous blue slippers.” (Backgrid photos)
