Avengers Movie Actors Quote-O-Matic
© Joe Crowe
May 01, 2012

While trying to stay calm during my wait for the Avengers movie, I learned two things: The actors and director Joss Whedon are goofy. Here are fun quotes from the movie premiere and from an Entertainment Weekly group interview.

Injuries during filming:

Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye): I sprained my neck.

Joss Whedon (director) He was turning to the right. Kids, don't turn to the right. It's too dangerous.

Samuel L. By God Jackson (Nick Fury): I had an awful rash from my costume because the neck was too high.

Scarlett Johannson: Oh, here we go.

Jackson: I filed workmen's comp for that. I'm still getting paid.

What did Robert Downey Jr. wear under the Iron Man suit?

Downey: Cash!

How good is the movie?

Downey: Everybody said it really worked. We went home like, "Phew!" Otherwise -- (pointing at Joss Whedon) I'd be gunning for you, motherfilker.

I'm sorry. I'll never say motherfilker with Sam Jackson in the room again.

Jackson: It's OK. I have different ways of saying it when I hear other people say it.

Hawkeye's personality

Jeremy Renner: That's what makes him an interesting character. He's sort of inward.

Jackson: What did you say? N-Word? What?

Playing the Hulk:

Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner / Hulk): We talked a lot about Bill Bixby's David Banner. I watched the TV show with my 10-year-old boy. After the third episode he said, "He's so misunderstood."

Playing Nick Fury:

Jackson: I watched David Hasselhoff and decided I was not going to do any of that.

Which cast member is toughest?

Chris Hemsworth (Thor):"Scarlett would kill us all. She's lethal."

Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson): My money is almost uniformly on Scarlet Johannson. She does this chair flip thing in the film that is so awesome."

Robert Downey Jr. (He is Iron Man): Not all of us are in the same weight class so it is hard to say between Hemsworth and Evans. I think they're pretty evenly matched. I think it would go to the ground. Then I think it's me, Ruffalo, and Renner in a quote-unquote three-way in which I lay waste to them with sleeper holds but then we cuddle. And then it is Hiddleston versus Johansson if I am not mistaken. That probably just winds up in dinner at a five-star restaurant somewhere."
