This may be the only Marvel movie recap you need.
Jimmy Fallon assembled some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes — Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Brie Larson, Danai Gurira, Karen Gillan, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, and Paul Rudd — to sing a Marvel-themed version of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” on The Tonight Show.
Some of the actors seemed more enthusiastic about concept than others. Evans, expectedly, was super into it.
The comic book-style musical bit is essentially a quick run-through of everything that happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe leading up to Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of said cinematic universe. Remember when Thor had long hair? Remember that movie The Incredible Hulk? It’s all here.
With Avengers: Endgame coming out this Friday — this Thursday if you count late-night screenings — a refresher can’t hurt.
As with most Marvel films, this musical number also has a Stan Lee cameo. The grand finale sees all the comic book panels assemble to form the image of the late Marvel comic creator. Excelsior!
