Captain America’s Most Spoken Word:
Both Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans may be out of the MCU. We won’t be seeing them return together on the big screen in another MCU film. But we’re glad that we got to spend some amazing moments of their togetherness throughout the Infinity Saga. The teamed up in The Avengers, fought together in Age of Ultron, fought each other in Civil War and then finally got back together in Avengers: Endgame. You may have thought that Cap loves Bucky the most. But no. It has been Tony all along. In fact, Cap’s favorite word isn’t “Language”. Neither is it “Bucky”. Apparently the word that Cap loves to say is “Tony”.
Marvel waited until the very last fight to make Cap say “Avengers Assemble”. They teased it in Age of Ultron but the scene was cut before Cap could say Assemble. In Age of Ultron, Cap was also made fun of having the Avengers to actually mind their language. But after that, we’ve heard Cap say “Son of a bitch” not once but twice. And now, we’ve come across the revelation that Cap’s most spoken word is actually “Tony”. It’s just crazy and amazing at the same time. Cap & Tony were really the best of friends. They led the MCU together we loved it when they were together on screen. But not anymore.
Robert Downey Jr. spoke about working with Chris Evans in the MCU. He said:
“[Evans’] suspension of his own disbelief, regardless of whatever doubts he had, is the reason all these other worlds are able to be built. Starting with Avengers, and then Guardians, and Black Panther. People love to say — and I’ll eat it up — that I’m kind of the progenitor of this whole universe. But if you want to talk about it in terms of team building, and you want to talk about it as the most successful creative relay race in the history of cinema, he was the critical leg.
I’ve been in hundreds of scenes with this guy. Nobody laughs more than him. Sometimes he makes me self-conscious, like, ‘Should I be more fun?’ There’s a little bit of, like, just trying to shake out the anxiety. And I’ve also seen him, over the last 10 years, go from being someone who had laughably real social anxiety to someone who has grown more and more comfortable in their own skin.”
They’re great together. We’d surely love to see them return in some other film.
