The cast of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” paid a special visit to Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner joined the ABC late-night host, whose studio is conveniently located across the street from the film’s star-filled premiere at the Dolby Theatre that evening.

The superhero-themed episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” marked the first time the Marvel stars had appeared together to promote the highly anticipated film.

Kimmel kicked off the show with a game of “Telephone,” which started off with him whispering “The ‘Avengers’ are on the show tonight” to Evans — but once it got passed down the cast line it ended up as Downey Jr. bizarrely saying: “The diaphragm jelly is in my glove box.”

Later in a group interview, the stars voted Downey Jr. as the leader of the group, while Hemsworth was dubbed as being in charge of fun.

Making the sequel was more fun, however, because “it felt like a high school reunion,” Hemsworth said, while the original felt like the first day of school.

“It was magical too, because little missy here was knocked up,” said “Iron Man” star Downey Jr., pointing to Johansson. “It’s just great to wear a tight-fitting catsuit when you’re humungous,” she joked about being pregnant while playing Black Widow.

Poor Ruffalo had to wear a “man canceling suit,” which is how he referred to his CGI leotard for the Hulk because “it makes you look small everywhere you want to look big, and big everywhere you want to look small.”

Later, Kimmel had some fun with his guests by splitting the cast up for a friendly game of “Avengers Family Feud.” Chris “Captain America” Evans led the “Americas,” while Downey Jr. led the “Man” team.

The very apt questions included naming things people do in a movie theater instead of watching the film – answers included texting, eating popcorn and making out — and “besides a superhero, name a profession that requires you to wear tights.” Surprisingly “bobsled team” was not on the board.

After a few more frantic rounds, Downey Jr., Johansson and Hemsworth won the impressive prize of a “bicycle made for two.”

Earlier, Downey Jr. celebrated the visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” with his first ever Instagram post, showing his famous colleagues backstage with Kimmel with the caption: “Come get me, Instagram …”



The “Avengers” cast weren’t the only members of the Marvel universe hanging out with Kimmel on Monday. “Ant-Man” star Paul Rudd made a surprise appearance in the closing credits of the show as he spoof trashed a set with Kimmel.

Viewers also got an extra treat with never-before-seen clips from the “Avengers” sequel, which has a good shot at topping the record $207.4 million opening of Disney and Marvel’s blockbuster original when it debuts on May 1.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs week nights at 11:35 p.m., ET/PT on ABC.  “Avengers: Age of Ultron” opens in theaters May 1.
