Stark and Banner rush to assist 'technologically challenged' Captain America
Actors Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. recently decided to team up and poke fun at fellow actor Chris Evans, following his rant against technology, on Twitter. For those unaware, Evans plays Steve Rogers or Captain America while Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark or Iron Man and Ruffalo plays Bruce Banner or the Hulk, in the Avengers series. Read what happened.
Evans complained about modern technology comparing it with the 90s saying that technology just 'WORKED' back then. The star said he did not need a "smart" feature on his lights, music, thermostat, television, security cameras, refrigerator, and even his car. He spoke on behalf of everyone calling the advancement a pain in the posterior and said it was simply not worth it.
Dear All Technology,— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) January 7, 2019
Remember the 90’s when you just WORKED??? I don’t need a ‘smart’ feature on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, refrigerator, security cameras, and f-ing car. You’re a major pain in all of our asses. You’re not worth it.
Funnily Evans' rant against technology is similar to Captain America's who is a soldier from the past, and often has trouble coping with current technological advancements. Stark and Banner are the scientific geniuses of the Avengers and they bond over their mutual love for science. Therefore, the actors decided to channel their personas of 'science bros' while making fun of Evans' troubles with technology.
Downey Jr. and Ruffalo were quick with their humor. While the former, tagging Ruffalo, said that 'Cap' might need some help from them, the latter offered to assist Evans any time. Ruffalo also noted that Evans had used expletives in his rant, and made a funny reference to Captain America's displeasure with strong language in Avengers: Age of Ultron, saying 'Also language'.
hey @MarkRuffalo looks like Cap needs a little tutoring from the science bros.— Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) January 8, 2019
Call or DM us whenever you need assistance, @ChrisEvans. Also language.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 8, 2019
Evans took the trolling sportingly and replied saying that he guessed the arc reactor did not require annoying upgrades or downloads or a new operating system every three months. He ended his post in another plea for help. For the uninitiated, the arc reactor is one of Stark's best inventions, and is the technology that powers the Iron Man suits and keeps Stark alive.
I’m guessing the arc reactor doesn’t need some sort of annoying upgrade or download or new OS every 3 months. HELP ME! https://t.co/FjIbBBG3va— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) January 8, 2019
It is indeed nice to see the actors joking among themselves and keeping up a rapport. Fans are mindful that we will soon see them step into the shoes of their superhero personas as they battle Thanos together in Avengers: Endgame.
