The week may be young ladies and gentleman, but it has already been jam-packed with Avengers goodness. In addition to the sequel announcements of Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 1 for May 2018 and Pt. 2 for May 2019 (yes, even before the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron this May), a fan also released a Friends spoof starring everybody’s favourite team of superheros. That got us thinking…what if The Avengers was actually like the TV show Friends? Maybe it could work!
The characters themselves are pretty comparable personality-wise. Think about it. The thick-headed but charming Thor could be Joey. The straight-laced, sad sack, butt-of-the-joke Captain America could be Ross. The quick witted, goofy Iron Man is Chandler. The sexy, sarcastic Black Widow could be Rachel. The sweet and homely Pepper Potts would be Monica (who eventually gets engaged to Iron Man in Avengers Tower surrounded by a million candles) and Maria Hill could be Phoebe. But she’d have to loosen up a little and learn how to play “Smelly Cat.” Hulk (as Bruce Banner of course) and Hawkeye could play Phoebe’s boyfriends like Mike or Gary
We know that coffee at Central Perk wouldn’t be their thing, shwarma would be. As we learned in the first movie, they love it. They would most certainly be happy to gather every day at their favourite restaurant, Shwarma Palace to hang out, talk about their days and comically air their grievances. Maybe the chef there could fill the role of Gunther. They’d need to get a couch though.
And sure they don’t live on the same floor of a kitschy yet spacious New York City apartment building. But they do have their Avengers Tower in NYC. It’s almost as spacious as Monica’s rent controlled Manhattan pad. All kinds of silly hijinks and relationship drama could unfold. Not to mention they could host thanksgiving dinners, Halloween parties, Christmas. So many options! And hey, with his pirate patch, Nick Fury is just as eccentric of a neighbor as “ugly, naked guy.”
It all makes sense right?
