Jimmy Kimmel Live forces the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast to answer serious Family Feud questions – like who else wears tights these days?
How do you settle who the best superhero is? Give them a series of challenges? Pit them against each other in battle? Jimmy Kimmel Live has a far more novel solution – split the actors into teams and have them compete in Family Feud. Sure, it’s unconventional, but it’s certainly the funniest Avengers: Age of Ultron promotion yet – helped in no small part by a clearly enthusiastic cast.
Family Feud, for those not in the know, is a television show where two families guess the most popular answers from surveys. Last night, Jimmy Kimmel Live ran its Avengers-themed version, pitting “The Americas” (Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner) against “The Manns” (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson). Each survey question addressed a variety of vaguely superhero-themed topics, including “Name Another Profession Where You Wear Tights” and “Name The Worst Place To Turn Into The Hulk”. (Which Johansson absolutely nailed with “porta-potty” in my mind.)
Of course the real humor comes from the Avengers themselves, who are clearly having an absolute blast. It certainly helped that no one’s name tag stayed in place, prompting everyone to switch tags and fling names across the room. Presumably confrontations between these personalities will not stay civil, but in the meantime this might be the best Avengers: Age of Ultron promotion you’ll ever see.
