The Avengers was an experiment that showed up well for the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen. The movie crossed all the box office records and firmly helped the Marvel Cinematic Universe get its position in the universe. Later, the next three sequels also bowled all the box office records. It was the fourth film of the franchise when Avengers: Endgame showed up on the screen. The film managed to become the highest-grossing film of all time in the history of global cinema.

With too much success and an intriguing amount of cash flow around, it is still surprising how most people don’t know about a few things about the Avengers movies. While it has taken a lot of work and effort to bring these superheroes to life, fans clearly don’t know everything about the franchise that is revolving around Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

With that said, here are the 5 things about the Avengers movies that most of you must be unaware of –

When the massive battle against the biggest villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos, comes to an end, Iron Man manages to get the Infinity Stones from Thanos’ hand. With the snap of a finger, Tony Stark destroys Thanos and all his forces as well. But, right before Tony snaps, he replies to Thanos’ “I am inevitable” but saying “And I… am… Iron Man.” While it was a beautiful tribute to the character, it was not there in the script.

While the stereotypical thinking depicts that superheroes must be concerned about their diet intake, Robert Downey Jr. seems to be the opposite. On the sets of The Avengers, Downey hid food all around the set. In an interview, Vincent D’Onofrio revealed it by saying “Downey does hide food all over the set. I’m not going to tell you why. But he does. It makes perfect sense.”

It was Lou Ferrigno who was there in The Incredible Hulk dominating the American televisions. He has even played the role of a security guard in The Incredible Hulk (2008). Lou even returned in The Avengers but not on-screen. Instead, he lends his voice to the Hulk’s roar. To this the sound editor, Christopher Boyes said: “Initially, for Hulk, I started using all sorts of animal vocals and tried to create this larger-than-life, territorial rage… And so the feedback coming back from Joss Whedon was that it was too much of a monster, too much of a creature. He really wanted to lead with the notion that this is a superhuman, but human in rage turned out to be a combination of Mark Ruffalo, some Lou Ferrigno, and a little bit of me and two people from New Zealand. So I led with that.”

It took three stuntwomen for body dubbing Natasha Romanoff. The director of the film, Joss Whedon explained the scenario by saying “She’s not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries. We didn’t trim any scenes. We’re like, ‘We’ll make it work.”
