Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed About The Original Avengers

Vote up the details that hit the mark.

Early on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Avengers Initiative comes to fruition, bringing together Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk. Over the course of the Infinity Saga, these superheroes save cities, defeat enemies, and reverse "the snap" by using teamwork and their highly specialized skill sets. As fans online point out, there are some incredible weapon and combat details that help them along the way. For example, in Avengers: Endgame, Captain America wields Thor's hammer Mjolnir for the first time. Unlike Thor, though, Cap has to recoil when catching the mythical weapon. In The Avengers, when Iron Man fights in the streets during the Battle of New York, look closely and you can spot the shawarma shop the Avengers grab a bite at in the post-credit scene. When Tony and Rhodes crash through the ceiling in Iron Man 2, Natasha (still using an alias at this point), takes a combat stance, subtly revealing her true abilities.

Check out this list of weapon and combat details fans spotted about the original Avengers, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Cap Cushions His Mjolnir Catch In 'Endgame'

    From Redditor u/Moohamin12:

    In Endgame (2019), Cap always cushions the flight path of Mjolnir while Thor grabs it outstretched. Cap is used to adjusting for the Shield's recoil while Thor knows Mjolnir comes to a stop at his hand.

    Hawkeye Fires A Gun Like An Arrow In 'The Avengers'

    From Redditor u/rob_ob:

    In The Avengers (2012), when Hawkeye fires at Maria Hill, even though he's shooting a gun, he positions his body with his shoulder blades very far back, just as he would if he were firing bow and arrow. Almost everyone other S.H.I.E.L.D agent in the film uses the traditional 'cup and saucer' method.
