Crush of the Month ~ The Avengers


This month we’re crushing on the cast of The Avengers!

That’s right. Joss Whedon did us a favor when he brought all these beautiful people together in one action-packed super hero extravaganza. Since I can’t pick just one, we’re going to crush on all of them.

Starting with Robert Downey Jr. This bad boy turned super hero first grabbed our hearts in Less Than Zero. That last scene of him in the back of the convertible? Still gets me. If you’ve never seen the movie – rent it. It’s 80’s debauchery in all its glory. RDJ reprises his role of Tony Stark, that snarky, brilliant, billionaire with a heart of, what is his heart exactly? Cadmium? Chocolate? Well, whatever it is, it glows all the time and needs a jump start every now and then. But we still love him and his funky Iron Man costume.

Scarlett Johansson plays Black Widow and while I don’t know much about her character, I do know that outfit looks very uncomfortable. Extra badass points to her for wearing that thing. Being the only woman on the hero team must get tiresome. All those men and testosterone! Oh, wait… she gets to hang out with RDJ, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, okay never mind that. She probably had a blast being the only female in the group. Go Scarlett!

Speaking of my sweet Chris Hemsworth, you already know how much I adore him, so we’ll keep this brief. Ah, Chris. I mean Thor. I mean Chris. Thor swings a mean hammer, doesn’t he? I can’t help but wonder how they will resolve the dangling love interest thing they had going on at the end of Thor. I guess when you have a world to save love gets put on the back burner. Again.


Jeremy Renner is a relative unknown to us, but one to keep an eye on. He’s one of those quiet types that will sneak up on you. Always watch out for the quiet ones… and don’t forget he’s got a wicked crossbow.

Mark Ruffalo, while adorable and quirky, is an interesting choice for the Hulk. Perhaps he will bring a compassionate side to the green man. We’ll just have to wait until we see the movie to find out.

Next up we have the original Avenger, Chris Evans. I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly charmed with Chris in Captain America, so he’s still kind of ‘meh’ for me right now. We’ll see how awesome he does in Avengers. Who knows, he might grab our hearts and make it to Crush of the Month status.


And finally we have Tom Hiddleston as Loki. He makes such a delicious demented God, don’t you think? Then again, Loki is the God of Chaos. Tom’s another one we’ll be watching for future Crush of the Month worthiness. For today, we’re going to enjoy him being a badass God making trouble for our super heroes.

For those of you crying foul that I forgot Nick Fury, let me assure I did not forget Samuel Jackson. Since that fiasco on the plane with all those snakes, I just can’t crush on poor Sam. I really hate snakes. Sorry.

We’ll be seeing The Avengers tomorrow night, are you going to see it this weekend? Who is your favorite super hero? Is there a special someone you’d like to see featured in our Crush of the Month? Come, share with us!

    Black Widow’s outfit is not nearly as uncomfortable as I thought (and I had a cheaper made version lol). There will be pictures on my blog tomorrow!

    We were at the midnight showing (most of my friends were at the all-day Avengers marathon). IT ROCKS. Seriously. Full of amazing. Every single person, every single minute. The boys went and saw it again this morning already.

    We had everybody but Hawkeye. (Well we had a Hawkeye, but he didn’t dress up past having a bow.) We all walked out of the theater and spent the next 20 minutes being bombarded with people wanting us to pose and take pictures with them.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    Heart . Thumping. So much. Yummy. Goodness! 😀 Yeah, baby. I’m there tomorrow. Thank the gods, my little one is starting to feel better. I already have the tickets. Could you imagine if she still had the crazy temp and I couldn’t go? o_O

    I just love Robert Downey Jr. and know he will make the movie for me.

    Hi, Tameri, you’ve convinced me. I’ll go to see it this weekend. Did you see Scarlett Johansson in The Other Bolyen Girl?.She was pretty amazing in that, too.

    I am seeing it tomorrow. And, can’t wait. I have always been a Robert Downey, Jr. fan. Less Than Zero is brilliant. And, I have a mad girl crush on Scarlett Johansson.

    I’ve had a crush on Jeremy Renner ever since I saw him on the short lived tv show The Unusuals. He’s a cutie; I like the quiet type.

    So much pretty. I probably won’t get to see it on the big screen, but I will be looking forward to seeing it eventually.

    I once wrote up a flow chart explaining to a team I managed how they needed to spend the day figuring out how to get me a date with RDJ. True story. 🙂

    I fell in love with Chris Evans when he starred in Cellular (a movie most people have never heard of). As for The Avengers? I saw it at 8:00 last night, then again at 2:00 this afternoon (YES…I LOVE it!). All of the guys are sexier than anyone has a right to be but I’d have to say Robert Downey Jr. hits number one, followed closely by Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, and Tom Hiddleston. Yes, I want them all. 🙂

    Wahoo, I finally saw it! Fantastic writing (classic Joss Whedon, with all those snarky zingers and comebacks), and oh boy, the eyecandy. I echo Kristy — I definitely want to get my hands on all of them, though I think RDJ and Chris Hemsworth collectively have my heart.
