18 Facts About The First Avengers That Will Make You Miss Them Even More

It’s been more than a decade since the first Iron Man film launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there’s no indication of it easing down in the near future. With the release of Black Widow, it marks what might be the final theatrical appearance for any of the original Avengers, who originally came together in 2012’s film of the same name.

Looking back, it’s amazing how many minor things are integrated into each of the original Avengers performances and set pieces to give them that extra something. This is a compilation of minor tidbits about the original Avengers that make us miss them. Share with us the facts you missed while watching Marvel’s Avengers.

#1 Iron Man 2′ Hinted At Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, And The Existence Of Mutants

After unearthing a new element concealed by his father in Iron Man 2, he requests that the Oracle Grid be searched for projects from Pegasus, Exodus, and Goliath. Exodus: study on human mutants (X-Men), Goliath: tested with Pym Particles (Captain Marvel), Pegasus: light speed engine (Captain Marvel), Goliath: experimented with Pym Particles (X-Men) (Ant-Man).

#2 The Hulk’s Language Barrier Starts To Disappear In ‘Ragnarok’

Thor and the Hulk spar in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. Instead of calling himself “Hulk” after Thor apologizes, Hulk adds, “I just get so angry all the time,” demonstrating how Thor’s fellowship brings out Hulk’s human aspect. In the Mcu, this is the only occasion Hulk says “I.”

#3 A Minor Detail Illustrates A Close Relationship

Black Widow is shown wearing an arrow necklace in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), a tribute to her strong relationship with Hawkeye.

#4 Hawkeye’s Shooting Stance Is… Weird

Even though Hawkeye is firing a rifle at Maria Hill in The Avengers (2012), he postures his torso with his shoulder blades far back, just as if he were discharging a bow and arrow. The classic ‘cup and saucer’ strategy is used by almost every other S.H.I.E.L.D agent in the movie.

#5 He Calls Himself “Hawkeye” For A Reason

In Avengers: Age of Ultron the archery target in Hawkeye’s barn only has hits in the center.

#6 Tony Wears His Father’s Old Robe In ‘Iron Man 2’

Tony Stark begins Iron Man 2 (2010) wearing the same robe that his father wore in the 1940s, as shown in Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter (2013), which was included in the Blu-ray release of Iron Man 3.

#7 Thor Paid Homage To His Fallen Brother

In Avengers: Age of Ultron and part of Thor: Ragnarok, Thor has a strand of Loki’s hair braided into his own to honor his fallen brother.

#8 Tony’s Scars Are Visible

You can see scar tissue on Tony Stark’s chest where the Arc reactor was removed in Iron Man 3.

#9 Thor’s Fake ID Is A Nod To The Comics

In Thor (2011), Dr. Selvig created a fake ID for Thor using the photo Darcy took of him at breakfast. The name Selvig used for Thor’s ID, Dr. Donald J Blake, is Thor’s human alter ego from the comics.

#10 Natasha Took Up Ballet Again After The Snap

In Avengers: Endgame (2019), a pair of pointe shoes (used in ballet) sit upon a chair near Black Widow, a reference to her origin story and presumably her attempt at coping with the losses endured in Infinity War.

#11 While Getting Shawarma, Chris Evans Had To Cover His ‘Snowpiercer’ Beard

Cap (Chris Evans) is seen resting his face on his hand and not eating anything in The Avengers post-credits sequence at the shawarma booth. This is due to the fact that the sequence was shot too late (after the premiere) and Evans had grown a beard while working on Snowpiercer.

#12 Hawkeye Couldn’t Watch Natasha Sacrifice Herself

In Avengers: Endgame (2019), when Black Widow falls, Hawkeye briefly looks away, as due to his enhanced far-sightedness, he didn’t want to see her hit the ground.

#13 Captain America Is Steadfast In His Values

In Captain America: Civil War prior to the Sokovia Accords, Steve has his Avengers logo [on his uniform], but later at the airport scene you can see he removed it.

#14 Black Widow Almost Blew Her Cover In ‘Iron Man 2’

They fall through the ceiling in front of Pepper and the still-undercover Natasha Romanoff during the Rhodes/Tony fight in Iron Man 2. Rather of reacting to her fear like Pepper does, she back-steps into a combat position, almost revealing her identity.

#15 There’s A Familiar Tune In The Casino Opening In ‘Iron Man’

In Iron Man (2008) the music that plays in the casino is actually the opening music of the original 1966 Iron Man cartoon.

#16 Steve And Tony Have Unique Hand-To-Hand Fighting Styles

Redditor u/Sen Yarizui collected a sequence of clips showcasing Cap and Iron Man’s differing fighting methods throughout three films, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War, stating: “Captain America is a boxer, whereas Iron Man trains in Wing Chun kung fu.” Both deploy their different combat skills in the hand-to-hand action in Captain America: Civil War.

#17 Banner-Hulk Needs To Compensate For His Loss Of Dexterity

In Avengers: Endgame (2019), Hulk uses a pencil to flick the switches in the scene where they are trying to send Scott back in time, because his fingers are too big.

#18 The Hulkbuster Armor’s Cheeky Nickname

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony alludes to the Hulkbuster armor in an earlier scene as “Veronica.” This is because Bruce Banner’s girlfriend in The Incredible Hulk is named Betty Ross; a nod to the classic Archie comics characters.
