Trivia / Marvel's Avengers

Go To

  • All-Star Cast: Four of the main five Avengers are assembled from quite a who's-who of notable voice actors— Nolan North plays Tony Stark, Laura Bailey is Black Widow, Travis Willingham plays Thor, Troy Baker plays Bruce Banner, and Darin De Paul plays the Hulk. The most obscure cast member, Jeff Schine , ironically plays Captain America, who spends basically the entire game out of contact.

  • Ascended Meme: In the closing cutscene of the "Taking A.I.M." expansion, Tony comments that people can stop asking where Hawkeye is now that he’s back with the Avengers.
  • Content Leak:
  • Fake American:
    • Usman Ally, a Pakistani actor, voices the American George Tarleton.
    • Australian Jolene Anderson voices the American Monica Rappaccinni.
  • Fan Nickname: Ms. Marvel: The Game (Co-Starring The Avengers), since Ms. Marvel gets the lion's share of the story and essentially is the main character, with the other Avengers mostly there for her to bring back together to stop the villains.
  • God Never Said That: The launch week War Table stream was prefaced by a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who had passed away mere days earlier, and a note that the content that was going to be shown in the stream had been altered out of respect to the actor. Crystal Dynamics has never said what content reveal was delayed, but members of the fandom still insist that it was the intended reveal of Black Panther as a post-launch hero.
  • I Knew It!:
    • After a Freeze-Frame Bonus showing a skull-clad mercenary, it was widely speculated to be Taskmaster. Marvel officially confirmed that was indeed him.
    • The SDCC 2019 presentation for the game confirmed that the narrator for the E3 trailer is indeed Kamala Khan... and she's playable!
    • Many speculated that if Spider-Man were to be added to the game, it would be the same one from the Spider-Man (PS4) game and be exclusive to PlayStation consoles. As it turns out, Spider-Man was indeed the exclusive Sony content that was promised.
    • Many didn't believe that Captain America actually died on A-Day, despite the rest of the game’s marketing trying to obscure this. They were right.
  • Jossed: Shortly after Spider-Man was confirmed to be coming to the game as DLC, the developers dispelled the theory that the game takes place in the same universe as Insomniac's Spider-Man series, in spite of a few Easter Eggs in Spider-Man stating that the Avengers moved to the west coast and explaining that Taskmaster fought the Avengers in the past. While Avengers could have been a Stealth Prequel, Crystal Dynamics didn't want their game to be seen in that way.
  • In Memoriam: The War Table stream before the game's launch was dedicated in memory of Chadwick Boseman.
  • Meme Acknowledgment: The July 2020 War Table acknowledged the "Where's Hawkeye?" meme, before finally confirming him as a post-launch DLC character.
  • Name's the Same: A-Day, the inciting incident of the game, would go on to share it’s name with an event mentioned throughout DC ComicsFuture State event and would occur during their Infinite Frontier relaunch.
  • Playing Against Type: Troy Baker as Bruce Banner, as opposed to his usual roles as Hawkeye and Loki in other Marvel media. Even he thought he was going to be cast as one of those characters when he was called to audition for the game.
  • Real-Life Relative: The voice actors of Thor (Travis Willingham) and Black Widow (Laura Bailey) are married in real life.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: Dr. Banner (Troy Baker) was the best man to both Thor (Travis Willingham) and Black Widow (Laura Bailey). Baker and Tony Stark's voice actor, Nolan North, also voiced brothers once before, on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
  • Release Date Change:
    • The initial release got pushed back about four months from May 15, 2020 to September 4 in order to fix and polish the game.
    • All of the post-launch content was delayed due to the team diverting from additional content to work on patches to improve the stability of the game. This included the next-gen version of the game, which was delayed from the launch dates of the respective consoles to March 18, 2021.
  • Role Reprise:
  • Spoiled by the Merchandise: Both the cover art to the Art Book & the line of Funko Pop vinyls based on the game confirmed that Captain America didn't die on A-Day, despite the rest of the game’s marketing trying to obscure this.
  • Trolling Creator: Near the end of Square Enix's E3 2019 conference, a prompt opened up on screen: "To the fans who have been waiting... At long last... Final Fantasy VIII." This caused the live stream chat (who had been waiting over 2 years for news on the game) to get angry. After the trailer, screen darkens, and transitions straight to the A-Day trailer catching said chat off guard.
  • Working Title: Known from 2017 to 2019 as The Avengers Project.
