The Avengers’ History

Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury conceived the Avengers Initiative. He first pitched the concept to Tony Stark. As Bruce Banner struggled with life as the Hulk, the Asgardian Thor emerged on Earth, and Steve Rogers, AKA World War II hero Captain America, was discovered alive decades after his presumed death, Fury held an eye on some possible members. At the same time, Tony Stark had also been defeated by Obadiah Stane and had announced that he was the Iron Man. Meanwhile, Black Widow and Hawkeye, two of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most skilled members, were making a name for themselves, and Fury was impressed by them.

Loki, the Asgardian trickster god, appeared on Earth and absconded with the Tesseract, a massively powerful object. Fury felt compelled to assemble his potential super squad, enlisting the help of Romanoff, Banner, Rogers, and Stark. Captain America and Iron Man were able to catch Loki with the help of Black Widow. Thor arrived on their return flight to S.H.I.E.L.D., seeking to get his brother back to Asgard to face justice. Thor and Iron Man got into a fight, but Captain America broke it up, and the party returned to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier with their hostage, Loki. Loki revealed that it had always been his plan to be captured, which prompted Banner to transform into the Hulk. During a battle with Thor, Hulk came dangerously close to damaging the Helicarrier before crashing to Earth. Loki then ejected Thor from the Helicarrier in his own enclosed cell and recovered his scepter, which he used to destroy Phil Coulson. Hawkeye, who had arrived to assist Loki, was defeated by Black Widow, who managed to return her friend to his true self in the process. Loki went on to New York, where he opened a gateway into space with the aid of the brainwashed Dr. Erik Selvig, unleashing a destructive Chitauri force. Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, and Hawkeye were all driven by the tragic death of Phil Coulson to travel to New York to battle Loki and his invading Chitauri powers and were soon joined by Thor and Hulk, forming the Avengers for the first time.

Amazing Facts about the Avengers Movies

  • From the time of the three-way battle between Captain America, Ironman, and Thor, Loki’s feet never touch the ground. He’s either on the helicarrier, in Stark Tower, or in one of the alien craft circling around New York.
  • Robert Downey Jr. sought permission from the Marvel production manager to take the letter “A” from the Stark Tower with him, but they refused. The manager, on the other hand, gave it to him as a birthday present on his next birthday.
  • In the film, only the paint on Captain America’s shield is scratched. His shield is made of a vibranium/iron alloy with a third mystery catalyst, and it can only be destroyed by beings with near-ultimate strength, such as Molecule Man, Rune King, Thor, or Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet, according to the comics. Aside from that, the shield is impenetrable.
  • Avengers: Endgame (2019) is the highest-grossing film of all time.
  • Originally, Edward Norton was expected to reprise his role from The Incredible Hulk (2008), but talks between him and Marvel Studios fell through. Mark Ruffalo, who had also been considered for the role in the previous film, was cast in Norton’s place.
  • Captain America is one of the original members of the Avengers in the film. Captain America was unexpectedly found while the Avengers were searching for Namor the Submariner in Avengers #4.
  • With his depiction of Nick Fury in the Avengers, Samuel L. Jackson becomes the second actor to play the same comic book superhero in five different films. The first actor is Hugh Jackman, who played X-Man in all X-Man movies.
  • Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki, asked Chris Hemsworth (Thor) to actually hit him while shooting a scene in The Avengers, but soon he regretted it. It is perhaps not fun, being actually hit by Chris Hemsworth.
  • The Avengers was the first-ever movie to make over $200 million on its opening weekend.
  • The most humorous fact of all is that Gwyneth Paltrow is barefoot in every Stark Tower scene, while Robert Downey Jr. is wearing 3-inch platforms to make him appear taller than her.
