‘Avengers: Endgame’ Cast on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johanssen, and Paul Rudd appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 8 to promote Avengers: Endgame, which will premiere April 26 in the U.S. The bond among this cast is obvious. It is always a pleasure to see them together. Kimmel joked with them about this being their last press tour. Downey, Jr. suggested they might be back, but Johanssen shut that down quickly, telling him not to lead Kimmel on. There go our far flung hopes…
When asked if any of them had seen the movie, they all said no, but Downey, Jr. shared that he will be having a screening on Easter at his home. Joking that he’ll have the movie on loop brought up one of the major discussion points in the fandom: the length of Endgame! Rudd joked about using an extra large popcorn tub when the urge hits, but Johanssen brought up a quote from costar Mark Ruffalo, where he suggested on Good Morning America to “bring Kleenex and wear a diaper.”
Kimmel asked the group about the famous Avengers tattoos as well. Apparently, it was Johanssen and costar Chris Evans’ idea and all of the original six Avengers – with the exception of Ruffalo – sat for the same tattoo to commemorate their time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When asked why Ruffalo didn’t participate, Johanssen indicated she’d heard he was afraid of needles, though he had not said that when the idea was discussed.
Jimmy asked about their favorite memories and lines from the movies, as well as sharing a clip from the upcoming Endgame movie. Check out the video below to see the whole interview!
