I’ve never seen an Avengers movie and I thought there would be about five characters. But holy moly is there any fictional character that ISN’T in this?


Burt Lancaster worked as a circus acrobat before he was in the movies. Which would suggest Spiderman, but I think of Spiderman as being lithe and Lancaster was more beefcake. So Thor.

Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner – Thor and Black Widow
Rita Hayworth – Scarlet Witch
Veronica Lake – Black Widow (although she has an awesome Black Widow costume already )

correction: Veronica Lake – Gamora

She has the Black Widow-ish costume but she’s more willowy like Zoe Saldana.

Again, I haven’t read comic books in decade or seen the movies, I am googling for pics and comparing the 40s actors to the present-day people.
