Team Cap Bonding Time  
I guess I'll just be posting these as I lead up to watching the movie.

Is it weird that I knew the answers to all the questions except for the Chris Evans one? I don't even know how all these random facts came into my head. If I only I could learn materials for my licensing exam as easily as I know actor facts.

You did better than me. I thought Sebastian Stan was Bulgarian for some reason. I was in the right area! And I didn't know the others, but I took a guess at Rudinski, which isn't too far off.

With Chris Evans's disney songs and his tap-dancing, I'd like to think he walks around in a musical in his head most of the time. In fact, given the level of musical talent within the Avengers cast in general, I could see Avengers: The Musical be a thing. Renner, Johannson, Downey, and Bettany for sure can all sing.

I'm a little surprised he hasn't already appeared in a musical or at the very least in a film that requires him to sing and/or dance. Granted, I haven't seen his entire backlog so maybe he has already?

For some reason my mind immediately went to the Vision singing some very introspective ballad and it made me laugh a lot more than it should have. I amuse myself apparently.

I felt like if he had, there would be clips and gifs of it floating around. I don't know if he actually can sing. Memorizing a movie doesn't mean he can carry a tune.

Hee! I can picture that. I actually had in one of my many little superhero children musings that JARVIS will sing lullabies if you ask him to, and he sounds kind of autotuned, but isn't that bad at it. I think, actually, I had him singing a lullaby version of the Star Spangled Banner to JJ on his first visit to the Tower, trying to be helpful and calm him down.

JARIVS: I’m not sure why, but it seems to be the only option I have for lullabies. I’m aware others exist but I’m being overridden by my programming when I try to pick one.
Steve: I think we both know why.
Tony: I just thought he'd like to hear the song of his people, okay?

I feel like at some point Tony would make a button that he'd slam his hand on every time Steve says something very Captain America-like and the threads of "Star Spangled Banner" plays overhead.

Hahaha!

Steve: But if you just believe in your--
Tony: *clicks fingers*
JARVIS: Oh, say can you seeeeeeeeee!
Steve: *disgruntled look* I just meant that--
JARVIS: By the dawn's early liiiiight!
Steve: But--
JARVIS: What so proudly we haaaailed
Steve: Fine. It's a terrible idea and I'm stupid for suggesting it, and we can't do anything if we believe in ourselves, we can only fail, and because we're going to fail, we should never even try because it doesn't matter.
Tony: *clicks fingers* Okay, how do you make it so your anti-pep talk sounds inspiring?

Well, clearly Steve just oozes inspiration. He doesn't sweat any moisture. He sweats MOTIVATION.

When I did my geeky character family crests awhile back, I put a beacon on Steve's, which is a symbol of one who brings nations together in times of conflict. But I kind of like 'sweats motivation' as a better way to put it. :p

I'd like to think that when Tony gets bored or feeling the urge to annoy Steve (re: all the time) he creates these Internet memes that feature a picture of Steve and some hilariously over the top phrase. "HE SWEATS TRUTH AND JUSTICE!" "CAPTAIN AMERICA: DEFENDER OF SUNSHINE!"
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 10th, 2016 08:38 pm (UTC)
Haha!

And the pictures are either Cap looking super heroic, or Cap doing something super mundane, depending on what sort of mood Tony is in.

EVEN HIS UNDERWEAR IS MADE OF FREEDOM! *picture of Cap eating a burrito*

HE IS THE MAN WITH A PLAN *photo of Cap folding laundry*

PUPPIES LOVE HIM *picture of Cap thoughtfully reading the instructions on a Jello pudding mix box*

And that one picture of Cap brushing his teeth randomly broke StarkBook and caused a worldwide shortage of Crest toothpaste due to a sudden surge in sales.

Didn't you determine that Sebastian Stan had done musicals as well?
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 9th, 2016 10:23 pm (UTC)
In his wiki page, it says he did musicals at school, so I'm assuming he can sing, but I've never heard him do it, so I don't know for sure. The others I know can sing because I've heard them do it. You can get away with a lot in high school musicals that doesn't necessarily mean a life on Broadway is in your future.

Although, from this 16 second clip, he does seem like he could pull it off.

But it's all guys! Where's Elizabeth Olsen?
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 10th, 2016 01:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I was kind of hoping that with Olsen being a larger player in these movies, she and Scarlet Johansson would be able to support each other during the constant bro-fest and intrusive questioning.

"bro-fest"! That's the word I've been looking for! I'm fond of these guys and think they're funny, but it gets to be a bit much.
