The Avengers are a talented bunch. They can fly, fight, save the world and sing.
Sing? Many of them can. A couple are actually good.
Roberty Downey Jr. and Chris Pratt — Iron Man and Star-Lord, respectively — each have a band when they aren’t portraying their Marvel characters.
In April 2018, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” aired a video of nine of the Avengers singing “The Marvel Bunch” (to the tune of “The Brady Bunch,” and even mimicking that show’s opening). The video debuted ahead of “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Now, as our heroes prepare for the final battle against Thanos in “Avengers: Endgame,” much of which was filmed in Atlanta, they’ve recorded another video for Fallon’s show. This time they’re covering “We Didn’t Start the Fire.”
And this time, Fallon joins in the fun. With Fallon are Downey, Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine) and Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man).
The video opens just as any movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the flipping of comic book pages. It ends as a salute to Stan Lee, the man who created many of Marvel’s characters. Lee died in November 2018.
