Not for kids: Only adults will understand these slick gags from Marvel movies

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is designed for the whole family, there are sometimes naughty gags that only adults can understand. We present the best of them here:

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe may not be the best entertainment for young children, the cartoon blockbusters are designed to bring the whole family together and have fun. For adults, however, it is often even more worthwhile to get involved in the movies, because there are always slippery gags to discover that children cannot understand at all.

We would like to introduce you to a handful of them. Leading the way, of course, are wisecracks Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Peter Quill aka Star Lord (Chris Pratt). But Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and the incredible Hulk are also involved in the bustle under the belt.

Size is what matters

In “Ant-Man And The Wasp,” Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) meets Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne), a former member of SHIELD. When he finds out that Foster also tested the program “Goliath”, Ant-Man can not help but ask him how far he went.

When he learns that his predecessor’s record is 6 meters, Lang proudly replies that his is 19 meters. A small competition that Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) puts an end to with the question of whether the size comparison has finally come to an end.

Hulk must not be aroused

The Incredible Hulk finds Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) sharing an intimate moment in a hotel room. As the two get closer to the bed, the clock on Bruce Banner’s arm sounds an alarm and tells him that his heart rate is rising. Banner acknowledges this with the phrase: “I must not get too excited”, which suggests that the green giant does not only react to stress and anger …

old traditions

When Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) learns early in Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 that Sovereigns reproduce by germinating the offspring’s DNA into modules, he replies that he, after all, prefers the “good old-fashioned method of reproduction”.

Princess Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), who seems to be in love with Quill, replies, “Maybe one day they could give me a history lesson.” However, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) immediately interrupts the impending dalliance.

A naked colossus

In Thor: Day of Decision, the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) wakes up in the green giant’s cell after confronting the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in Sakaar Arena. He then crawls out of his bathroom completely naked. Unable to avert his gaze in time as the naked Hulk trudges past him, Thor seems noticeably overwhelmed by the situation, to which he comments: “I never get rid of that image”.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) tries to think of something else.

doctor games?

As Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) spend some time rejoining the team at the end of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Tony Stark yells at them, “Romanoff? Romanoff?” You and Banner, it’s not really time to play doctor!

What is meant by that is of course clear to everyone. In the original, however, the quote still has a distinctly sloppy appearance, for Stark is not talking about medical games here, but “hide the zucchini” (pronounced “hide the zucchini”).

Back to the Middle Ages

In the beginning of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the superheroes take turns trying to lift Thor’s hammer. Tony Stark is confident that he can carry out this feat – if necessary in full Iron Man gear – and thereby automatically become the king of Asgard. As a first step, he announced that he would reintroduce the “right to the first night” – only to fail the task.

By Ius primae noctis is the historical law that allows a ruler to spend the first night with the bride who has entered into the marriage bond under his leadership.

The hammer is one size too big for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).
