14 Fascinating Details In Avengers 2012 That Can Still Take You Aback

It’s crucial to remember our roots as the MCU moves toward episodic content. The Avengers was a watershed moment for comic book enthusiasts everywhere, and fans have discovered a slew of hidden nuggets that will enrich even the 100th viewing.

It’s wonderful to see how far the original Avengers have come, whether or not you missed these minor, interesting elements the first few times. For instance, even though Barton is being mind-controlled by Loki, he still respects Nick Fury enough to call him Director Fury. Below are the 14 fascinating details in Avengers 2012 that can still take you aback.

1. The Guy Playing Galaga Is Gonna Beat The Highest Score

 From Redditor /u/SMOKLM:

“In The Avengers (2012) the guy playing Galaga when Stark leaves the room is beating his own high score!”

2. A Deleted Scene Shows The Flow of Howard

From Redditor /u/LongjumpingParamedic:

“Avengers (2012) deleted scene shows Tony Stark’s parent’s date of death that matches up with their date of death in Captain America Civil War (2016), assuming their bodies were found the next morning.

3. Hawkeye Shoots A Gun Like He’s Shooting An Arrow

 From Redditor /u/rob_ob:

“In The Avengers (2012) when Hawkeye fires at Maria Hill, even though he’s shooting a gun, he positions his body with his shoulder blades very far back, just as he would if he were firing bow and arrow. Almost everyone other SHIELD agent in the film uses the traditional ‘cup and saucer’ method.”

4. Chris Evans Covered His ‘Snowpiercer’ Beard

From Redditor /u/gau-tam:

“In The Avengers (2012) post credits scene at the shawarma stall, Cap (Chris Evans) is scene resting his face on his hand and not eating anything. This is because the scene was shot too late (after the premier) and Evans — who was working on Snowpiercer (2013) — had grown a beard.”

5. Banner Indicates He’ll Never Get What He Wants

From Redditor /u/scorpions411:

“In The Avengers (2012), when Natasha Romanov says that Bruce Banner probably doesn’t want to break his streak of a year without incident, Bruce replies that he doesn’t always get what he wants while gently rocking an empty baby cradle.”

6. Even While Compromised, Clint Still Told Fury By ‘Director’

From Redditor /u/The_Safe_For_Work:

“In The Avengers (2012) Even though Barton is being mind-controlled by Loki, he still respects Nick Fury enough to call him Director Fury.”

7. Bruce Banner’s Confession

From Redditor /u/AymanIhsan:

“In The Avengers (2012), Bruce Banner referenced a scene in The Incredible Hulk game (2008), “I got low. I didn’t see an end, so I put a bullet in my mouth and the other guy spit it out.”

8. Steve And Tony Proved Each Other Wrong

From Redditor /u/forumsspammer666:

“In Avengers: Endgame, both Iron Man and Captain America prove each other’s arguments wrong from Avengers (2012).”

9. Steve Gets Briefed With A Paper File In Lieu Of Fury’s Typical Holograms

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Dipolar-Abyss:

“In Avengers (2012), Nick Fury used a regular paper file when recruiting Captain America. He most likely did this because it’s been so long since Cap was last awake, and he would probably understand it better than a holographic display.”

10. Tony Created SHIELD New Tech After An Incident

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Luis_Y_Que:

“In The Avengers (2012), Iron Man is sucked into the turbine rotors during repairs for the SHIELD helicarrier, and his suit is damaged. Later, in Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014), SHIELD helicarriers feature new rotor-less turbines designed by Stark so that this wouldn’t happen again.”

11. Tony Remembered Coulson’s Love Interest

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/ZachJonesIsShort:

“In Avengers (2012) Tony overhears Pepper ask Coulson about the cellist he was seeing. Later in the movie, Tony tries to get Coulson to see the cellist again, then informs Cap that Coulson did have a love interest after he dies.”

12. Gwyneth Paltrow Is Barefoot To Alleviate The Difference In Height

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/YouKnowABitJonSnow:

“In The Avengers (2012) Pepper Potts is barefoot in the Stark tower whilst Tony Stark wears shoes. This was done to mitigate the height difference between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr.”

13. The Display In Iron Man’s Helmet Can Show When He’s Overpowered

Source: Marvel Studio

From Redditor /u/Lagaash:

“In The Avengers (2012), Thor accidentally overcharges Iron Man’s armor during their first confrontation. Later in the movie, when Tony is helping to restart the helicarrier engine, we can see that the suit is still overcharged, albeit to a lower amount.”

14. Tony’s Arc Reactor Shines Back-Up When Bruce Tugs Him Awake

Source: Marvel Studio

 From Redditor /u/OlympusMan:

“In The Avengers (2012) Tony’s Arc Reactor is initially dimmed after his fall, it relights after Hulk revives him.”
