Avengers fan's spouse tries to name the heroes with hilarious results

When you’re eyeballs deep in superhero movies like we are, it’s easy to forget that not everyone pays attention to these movies like we do. For example, I heard someone in a coffee shop this week say that “apparently Infinity War is just the first of a two-parter.” One Avengers fan brought it all into sharp relief when they asked their wife to name all the characters after seeing the...

He let Yahoo! know just what he was thinking. “I wasn’t in the ‘superhero argument’ movie [Captain America: Civil War], I’m not in Avengers 3 and 4. They’re shooting them now and they haven’t called me...
