Robert Downey Jr. Shares a Photo of the ‘Beard Bros’ and ‘Science Bros’ From ‘Infinity War’ Set
Sometimes Avengers: Infinity War feels like it’s just an excuse for a bunch of actors to have a giant get-together, film it, and add in some special effects later to make them all look cool. Like the shawarma post-credits scene from the first Avengers, but for two-plus hours. Today on set, two scientists, a doctor, and a librarian walked into a La Croix commercial… and made sure to snap a pic.
The image, shared by Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo on their social media accounts, shows the two Avengers having a light lunch with Doctor Strange, a.k.a. Benedict Cumberbatch, and Wong, whose real name is also Benedict. Downey captioned his photo with #beardbros (a reference to this moment in the comics), #sciencebros (a reference to Tumblr’s preferred way of referring to Tony Stark and Bruce Banner), and #benedictsquared.
No one looks particularly ready for this photo, especially not Ruffalo, who’s either just about to or has just blinked. Loving Benedict Wong’s mustache though. And if you look reeeeally closely, you can see the upper halves of his and Cumberbatch’s slightly updated costumes for Infinity War. And I think RDJ is wearing a new Tony Stark shirt. Either that, or it’s a t-shirt with a very fashionable cutout right in the middle.
Avengers: Infinity War is said to have a scene with more than 30 different heroes in it, and a prospective cast list that’s even crazier. At least they can all find the time to relax with some seltzer every now and then.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
