Once the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie leaked a few days ago (thanks to Hydra, according to Marvel’s official tweet), the studio had no choice but to air the full trailer. Since then, fans of the geekdom all over the world have not stopped talking about the upcoming film. But what else should you know about the world-renowned cast before the movie comes out?
Mark Ruffalo is the first actor to play both Dr. Bruce Banner and The Hulk in the same film.
He played the role of Banner and at the same time played The Hulk on set via motion capture.
Jeremy Renner had to train extensively for his role as Hawkeye.
Renner went through training with Olympic archers for the part.
Black Widow is not one to be messed with.
Scarlett Johansson was trained in Wushu and weapons combat for her role as the deadly redhead.
The code name for the early filming of The Avengers was “Group Hug”.
Tom Hiddleston stated as well that the release of the movie was dubbed “Team Building”.
Chris Evans’ Captain America sent a true Avengers text to Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson.
When the project began, Evans texted Gregg “Assemble.” It was the most epic text Gregg had ever received, he admitted.
Lou Ferrigno, the original Hulk, reprised his role in some way.
Ferrigno was the voice behind the Hulk in The Avengers.
Loki is the most trained to fight them all on set.
Tom Hiddleston had to learn so many fight scenes with The Avengers. He underwent training in boxing, staff work, Wushu, knife combat, and hand-to-hand fighting.
Robert Downey Jr. may not have appeared at all in Avengers 2.
With the release of “Iron Man” in 2008, Robert Downey Jr. became a synonym of Tony Stark (genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist). However, there was a chance that we might have seen another actor donning the Helmet of Iron man.
When Downey Jr.’s contract ended with Iron man 3, there was talk of re-casting, which explains his absence from Guardians of the Galaxy (where Iron Man was supposed to make a cameo, a tip of the hat to Iron Man’s recent induction into the guardians in the comics).
Thankfully, the crisis was averted and he reprised his role as Tony Stark for the upcoming “Avengers 2: Age of Ultron” and “Avengers 3”. It is also confirmed that he will co-star with his fellow team mate Chris Evans in “Captain America 3”, so far named Civil War or Fallen Sons.
