Marvel at the Laughter

One of the things I enjoy almost as much as a good film are the bloopers that result from making a good movie.  So I was more than a little upset when I discovered that the DVD of Marvel’s The Avengers I had did NOT include a blooper reel.  RATS!!!

Eventually, however, I was able to find the official gag reel for The Avengers.  At least, I think it is the official gag reel.  Whether it is or not, it sure is funny!

And so, without further ado, here it is!

So far, among my friends, the unanimous favorite gag is Mark Ruffalo’s joke at the end of the reel.  Personally, I get a huge kick out of watching the Captain America stuntman (or maybe it was Chris Evans, I cannot tell when they are wearing the costume) miss his landing.  Honestly, sometimes I think actors and actresses are children in adults’ bodies.  I know we all have a child inside, but not all of us have a camera filming us when the child peeks out.

While searching the Internet for bloopers for The Avengers, I came across this gag reel for Thor: The Dark World:

Is it just me, or does Tom Hiddleston make a sound like a cat at the end of this gag reel?  I think he does, but it is hard to be sure.  I know it is a short blooper reel, but that does not make it any less fun.

Come back and enjoy the videos as much as you want.  After all, everyone needs a little laughter from time to time!

Until next time!

About The Mithril Guardian

I like stories.  Whether they’re on film, in song, or in print, I always remember a good story.  They remind me of paintings.  People cannot see them without learning something.  So it’s a good idea to look at a story from as many angles as possible.  I can watch the same movie a million times and still I will learn something that I did not know before.  Thoughts on the Edge of Forever is where I get to focus on what I learned from stories; what was not obvious the first time, the second time, or the umpteenth time. Earlier posts are written in the form of letters, usually to specific characters, to point out what I saw in a particular story or heard in a piece of music. Some of those letters, though, are like letters to the editor. Why did someone write a story this way and not another? Would the story have turned out better if the writer had done something different? These ‘letters to the editor’ will probably never be answered by the writers - the characters certainly will not answer anything - but their contents are still up for debate. After all, unless you ask a question, you will never get an answer. Still, civil ground rules apply. Any foul language or other form of abuse will not be tolerated in Thoughts on the Edge of Forever. I mean, who wants to be around the guest at the dinner party who is being nasty? Practically nobody, since people go to a party to have fun, not to hang around a grouch. So let’s have fun!
