While Marvel’s Avengers is very much set within its own universe, it is impossible for the franchise to escape the popularity of the MCU. As such, it is hardly a surprise that one Marvel’s Avengers player has gone out of their way to pay homage to the beloved film franchise.
While Crystal Dynamics initially avoided including MCU outfits in its game, as it wanted fans to connect with its own take on The Avengers, the demands from players eventually saw the developer caving in. Now, there are several MCU outfits available in the game, and given their popularity, more will likely come. Nameplates based on the Disney+ series Hawkeye have been included, too. However, it seems like these licensed items were not enough for SpirosOntic.
This Marvel’s Avengers player has gone out of their way to recreate some of the most memorable shots from the MCU using the game’s photo mode. One image sees Black Widow and The Hulk’s relationship adapted. While this romance was one of the more controversial aspects of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the “sun’s getting real low” line has become rather memorable. The photo taker makes sure to get Black Widow and Hulk coming close together under a sunset, capturing the feel of the quote. Widow’s hand also appears to be on Hulk’s face, making it look like she is calming Banner down.
It seems like SpirosOntic is particularly fond of the second Avengers film, as another Avengers: Age of Ultron scene is remade within Marvel’s Avengers. This time, the player recreates the slow motion shot of all the heroes working together from the very start of the film. Thor can be seen charging up his hammer on the right, Iron Man is flying by, and Hulk is attacking on the left screen. Captain America is jumping in the air while Black Widow is mid-kick, and a nice touch sees Hawkeye wearing his attire from the film.
SpirosOntic is recreating moments from more than just Avengers: Age of Ultron, though. The iconic finale of Captain America: Civil War is represented with a shot of Captain America and Iron Man fighting. In particular, the shot is an homage to Iron Man’s repulsors reflecting off Captain America’s shield – a sequence that was pulled directly from the Civil War comic book. With many loving this emotional fight and the film that it came from, it is fun to see it perfectly recreated within a video game.
With each post’s title also being a reference to a line from the MCU, the Redditor has done a stellar job of paying homage to the film franchise. With the multiverse recently introduced to the MCU, there will likely be many more memorable moments for Marvel’s Avengers players to recreate in the years to come.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
