Watch The Avengers Cast Try And Guess Each Other By Biceps

Typically, one of the top credentials for starring in an action film is building up big muscles - and the male stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are certainly no exception. But if presented with a photograph, could the various members of The Avengers identify not only their biceps, but those of their teammates? Watch the video below and find out.

It was MTV that crafted this little game to play during the Avengers: Age of Ultron press junket, and the results are a bit mixed. While some of the actors playing - including Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson - were able to correctly identify whose arms belong to whom, most of the answers given over the course of this video are way off base.

At the same time, however, one can perhaps understand a bit of the confusion that the various Marvel superheroes experience over the course of this video. After all, can you honestly say that you thought this was Robert Downey Jr. and not Chris Hemsworth? (Chris Evans was certainly shocked).


By that same token, I'm not sure anyone would have guessed that this was the God of Thunder. Presumably this was taken during an off-season from shooting performances as Thor, but evidently it is at least somewhat identifiable by the pointed elbow


Some photos made it more of a challenge than others, but - with no offense intended towards Mark Ruffalo - it was pretty clear from the purple shirt and the arm hair who that final arm belonged to. At least he gets to show off on the big screen with the biggest muscles of them all.


All of those bulky superheroes and more will be in theaters this weekend, and screenings of Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron have already begun nationwide.
