Since 2008, audiences are not stranger to Marvel Cinematic Universe and its sense of wit and humor put into their movies. Robert Downey Jr. did it flawlessly in Iron Man (2008) and Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) took the humor factor to a whole new level.
This year, the Avengers not only reassembled again to save the world from the global extinction of humanity by Ultron, but at the same time, gave us some of the most hilarious scenes ever that filled us audiences with laughter, cheer and loads of "whooo-hooo."
Below is the list of some of my top favorite moments deemed the funniest in Avengers : Age Of Ultron. Oh and by the way... Since those funny moments are spread throughout 2 hours and 21 minutes of the movie, be warned.
#7 - CAPTAIN LANGUAGE
Not only Steve Rogers is a strict soldier, but also a strict language marker. Being a military man 75 years ago, his formal talks are part of his own now. But when Age Of Ultron kickstarts off with Natasha, Banner (in green), Barton, Thor, Cap and Stark beating down a horde of soldiers, Iron Man flew right into an invisible shield of energy surrounding Strucker's fortress at Sokovia.
As Stark, caught off guard, threw an exclamatory objection, Rogers snarls over "Language!" Since then, Rogers sensitivity towards informal words are made butt jokes throughout the movie by his other team members!
#6 - YOU ARE ALL NOT WORTHY
After the party at Avengers tower, the team took part in a bonding activity. One by one they attempted to lift Thor's hammer as he smugly claimed that they are not worthy. Of course, no one could make the hammer budge until Steve Rogers stepped to the plate. He grabs hold of the hammer handle and moved it - just a smidge - but enough to make Thor's upper lip sweat and his eyebrow go high. Once Cap couldn't actually wield Mjolnir, Thor returned to his usual relaxed grin, but this time actually being relieved. Prestige of Asgardian God was about to be at stake? Perhaps!
#5 - SLIP OF TONGUE
During the end fight scenes, Nick Fury suddenly arrives out of nowhere to take care of the citizens via the famous Helicarrier. That was a help worth needed at that moment. What was not needed at that moment was Captain's severe level of excitement seeing Fury with the same Helicarrier. His slip of tongue exclaiming "Fury, you son of a bitch!" with a grin on his face was a moment where we all see how Captain Strict Language himself defies his own orders! Not to mention Fury's return jab at Rogers "Whoa you kiss your mother with that mouth?" Sheer rib tickling!
#4 - YOU DIDN'T SEE PIETRO-BARTON?
Throughout the movie, the most repeatative is Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver) responding to Clint Barton (Hawkeye) with one line "You didn't see that coming?" which becomes the most heartbreaking line for all viewers when Pietro take a horde of bullets in his body and exclaims "You didn't see that coming?" staring at Hawkeye's blank eyes! But talking about funny moments, Pietro grabbing his twin sister, saying "Keep up old man" and vanishing out of sight makes Hawkeye pull out an arrow, saying "No one will know... No one!", grins and puts back the arrow in his quiver. Heartwarming, yet funny!
#3 - MJOLNIR AND THE WORTHY (3 in 1)
Well, this may be a one point, but splitting up into three. Part I is a worldwide favorite. Vision picking up Thor's hammer was probably the loudest moment in the theater. After the joking trial of the whole team not being able to lift Mjolnir, Vision comes into creation and without even a slight hesitation or boasting, concludes a little pep talk by lifting Thor's hammer and handing it to him with utmost confidence. Thor, though surprised and shocked, gains an immense amount of trust in Vision then and there, which made him say around the end of the movie "The Mind Stone is safe with Vision."
The second part is kind of underrated maybe, but still a laugh or a giggle (whatever you call it), when Vision comes into existence for the first time, apologizes to Thor "I am sorry, it was... odd. Thank you!"... And the next thing he does is materialize a cape on his own back, apparently appreciating Thor's Asgardian fashion statement.
Lastly, it was Vision and Thor again facing off Ultron during the climax fight, where Vision comments about Mjolnir "It's terribly well balanced!" which makes Thor say "Well, if it has too much weight, you lose power over the swing" and keeps all calm!
In all the three scenes, there are funny moments, witty one liners, but one thing that surpasses everything is the trust between Vision and Thor! Notable guys... Quite notable.
#2 - ELEVATOR'S NOT WORTHY!
Once the heroes were done saving the world (for the second time), they regrouped at the New Avengers Facility in upstate New York. Prior to Thor's sendoff, Stark and Rogers bantered from either side of him about the Vision's capability to wield Thor's hammer. They joked about Vision being a machine, so that's why he could pick it up and they can't, adding that if you put the hammer in an elevator, the elevator goes up. "Elevator's not worthy," Rogers joked. To wrap up the comedic bit, Thor returns to Asgard, leaving a healthy mark on the lawn. "That man has no regard for lawn maintanence!" Stark cracks.
#1 - GO TO SLEEP! GO TO SLEEP! GO TO SLEEP!
I AM SORRY!
Every MCU movie is a collaboration of perfect CGI, top notch action sequences and extreme level of fun moments. The Hulk versus Hulkbuster scene is one such collaboration of every spice including levels of humor by Stark saying "In the back? Dick move, Banner!" The best part is yet to come. Stark goes on top of Hulk and unleashes continued jabs at his face "Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep!" It was absolutely impossible to laugh. Of course, Hulk spitting out a broken tooth and giving a over the shoulder red glare and Stark quivering "I'm sorry!" makes it up even more epic than expected!
