  • Robert Downey Jr. Hid Food On 'The Avengers' Set on Random Things You Didn't Know About The Avengers Cast

    (#10) Robert Downey Jr. Hid Food On 'The Avengers' Set

    While you'd think that someone appearing in a superhero movie would be concerned about adding any unnecessary calories, Robert Downey Jr. doesn't share those concerns. While filming The Avengers, he hid food all over the set, and it's hardly the only film set he's done it on. In a live interview with HuffPost for the movie The Judge, his castmates claimed that he continues the practice outside of the MCU.

    In the interview, Vincent D'Onofrio spoke about it, saying, "Downey does hide food all over set.” He added, “I’m not going to tell you why. But he does. It makes perfect sense."

    He's apparently well-known for doing this while he's working, and it's said that the directors don't mind because it often adds some comic relief to the long hours of filming. In some scenes in The Avengers, when he's eating food, that's from his stash.

  • Avengers Women Have Raked In More Money Than Any Others on Random Things You Didn't Know About The Avengers Cast

    (#17) Avengers Women Have Raked In More Money Than Any Others

    Those paying attention will note that Zoe Saldana has appeared in some of the most profitable movies ever made. Specifically, she starred in James Cameron's Avatar, and she's appeared in multiple MCU movies, all of which have earned more money than just about any other film in history. Her status is notable because she's also the only woman and person of color to star in two blockbuster films that grossed more than $1 billion each.

    Saldana's in good company in the MCU, since the highest-grossing actress of all time is none other than Natasha Romanova herself, Scarlett Johansson. Her impressive career has raked in a combined $14.29 billion and counting. Other notable women who are close to the top include other MCU stars: Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Olsen, Karen Gillan, Natalie Portman, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Evangeline Lilly, and Tilda Swinton. Altogether, they've pulled in about $6 billion throughout their careers.

  • Scarlett Johansson Worked With Three Stuntwomen To Hide Her Pregnancy on Random Things You Didn't Know About The Avengers Cast

    (#5) Scarlett Johansson Worked With Three Stuntwomen To Hide Her Pregnancy

    Scarlett Johansson was pregnant while filming Avengers: Age of Ultron, so the crew got to work making sure they could hide the pregnancy. Amazingly, they didn't need to trim any scenes, and that was largely due to the work of three stuntwomen who worked on the film. After all, pregnancies may be hidden easily enough on a sitcom, but this was an action movie.

    Director Joss Whedon explained the situation in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: "She's not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries. We didn't trim any scenes. We're like, 'We'll make it work.'"

    The stuntwomen wore dotted maps on their faces, so the VFX artists could digitally map Johansson's face onto theirs. It was all done in post-production, and nobody watching the movie could tell. Chris Evans joked about how much the women looked like the actress, saying, "It's always funny. You walk by, 'Hey, Scarlett - oh, weird. You're not Scarlett at all. Sorry.' A lot of fake Scarletts around."

  • Vin Diesel Knew Every Meaning Of 'I Am Groot' on Random Things You Didn't Know About The Avengers Cast

    (#6) Vin Diesel Knew Every Meaning Of 'I Am Groot'

    You might think that Vin Diesel walked into a recording booth and simply said, "I am Groot," over and over again to get enough takes for each of his appearances as Groot in the MCU, but that's not at all what happened. James Gunn had a special script made just for him, so he would know what Groot was saying. This helped him with the proper inflection and tone, which made the repeated phrase sound different each and every time.

    Gunn mentioned the script in a Facebook post on Diesel's page, saying, "This is the special Groot version of the script that only Vin Diesel and I have, where every Groot line is printed in English instead of Groot, so Vin will know what the various 'I am Groot's' mean. I love putting this thing together."

  • Elizabeth Olsen Can't Stop Making Sounds When She Uses Her Powers on Random Things You Didn't Know About The Avengers Cast

    (#13) Elizabeth Olsen Can't Stop Making Sounds When She Uses Her Powers

    Elizabeth Olsen entered the MCU via Avengers: Age of Ultron, and her character, Wanda Maximoff, has the powerful abilities to manipulate both minds and matter. As it happens, she has a little problem using her powers, and it has affected her performance from time to time.

    In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Olsen revealed she makes sounds whenever she's making the hand movements to cast her powers. She had to consciously keep herself from making any motions with her mouth as she did this because it would ruin the scene. "It was definitely something that I was really insecure about," she said.
