All but one of the originals Avengers cast are officially “bonded for life.”
Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth revealed that they all got matching tattoos as a tribute to their decade-plus time with the blockbuster Marvel franchise, which recently released its latest installment, Avengers: Infinity War.
Their sixth core castmate, Mark Ruffalo, refrained from going under the needle.
“Well team, we did it...?” Renner captioned a pic with the tattoo artist, Joshua Lord, on Thursday. “Thank you @joshualord for sharing ink with us all @avengers much love #eastsideink #bondedforlife @robertdowneyjr @chrishemsworth #chrisevans #scarjo #loveUall.”
“Brave man to allow all the @avengers the opportunity to ink,” Renner also wrote alongside a video showing him getting inked. “@joshualord what a killer day @robertdowneyjr @chrishemsworth#scarjo #chrisevans #avengersunited#eastsideink #hidethenerves.”
The artwork depicts the Avengers logo along with the number six, to represent the six original stars.
Evans also posted a video showing him getting ink with Johansson at his side.
“Thanks for the ink, Joshua Lorde! (and for letting all of us maim you in return),” he tweeted alongside the clip. “Love to @RobertDowneyJr @Renner4Real @chrishemsworth Scarlett (we just need to get Ruffalo blackout drunk) ❤️.”
What the 'Avengers: Infinity War' Cast Looked Like 10 Years Ago
Downey declared, “now we are one,” in a video posted on Twitter, and explained how the group bonding move unfolded to Entertainment Weekly.
“Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” he shared. “And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was [Scarlett] Johansson’s idea, and she and [Chris] Evans did it in New York.”
“Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to L.A., he did me, did [Jeremy] Renner, and then we just bullied [Chris] Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it," he continued.
The tight crew are some of the few remaining characters at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, which has spawned fan theories about the upcoming fourth film. See more on the franchise and what viewers think will happen next below.
