The Avengers get rom-com treatment in remix video, How to Avenge a Guy in 10 Days
What would the Marvel Cinematic Universe look like if it were a romantic comedy?
We’ve already seen a Natasha Romanoff-Ultron romance in Saturday Night Live‘s parody trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me. Now a Vulture Remix video, cheekily titled How to Avenge a Guy in 10 Days, sees Widow’s fellow avengers undergo the rom-com treatment. Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man’s Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and many more Marvel heroes feature in the spoof.
The video, backed by Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars, and with a quick comedic dose of Lionel Richie’s “Hello,” offers flirting and bromance, and claims it’s “from the guys who brought you Loki’s Just Not That Into You.” (Consider this an official request for that Loki remix, please and thank you.)
“With the next stage of the Marvel ascendancy coming with the newly teaser’d and ever-so-bromantic Captain America: Civil War, we decided to envision a world where the Avengers gave up on the world-saving and just went full romantic comedy on us,” New York Magazine wrote on its YouTube page.
