Prior to the European Premier of Avengers: Age of Ultron this week, the Avengers assem- gathered in central London for a press conference and Rhythm Circus was in attendance. For a room containing some of the world’s most famous people – Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johannson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany and director Joss Whedon – the event was pleasantly intimate. With just twenty minutes to take questions from a crowd of particularly geeky journalists (one memorably clutching a Hulk action figure), it was snappy yet insightful, and the familial nature of the motley crew was ever apparent. “Getting to hang out with these degenerates,” said Renner who’s Hawkeye gets a bit more to do in the film, responding to a question about what they look forward to most before getting on set for an Avengers movie.
To the same question Olsen (who was first to speak) proclaimed “cooking and eating,” a moment which provoked a big laugh from the audience who clearly realised her endearing misunderstanding. There were a number of lol moments, from Johansson quipping “watching you eat” when it was her turn to chime in, to Downey Jr’s tongue-in-cheek wardrobe change midway through, complete with a knowing Tony Stark grin.
