The Super-Dads of 'The Avengers' Talk About Parenting (VIDEO)

According to Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth's super-power is parenting


Super-Dads isn’t a franchise yet, but if we have our way, it will be soon.

Most of the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron are dads, and it’s a common bonding point between them: Robert Downey, Jr. told Entertainment Tonight that Chris Hemsworth‘s super power is “parenting. [Hemsworth’s wife] Elsa’s the best … Seeing the two of them just come out to brunch with a twin strapped to each of them, I just look and I think, ‘All right, they’re young. That’s how they can do that.’ ”

Hemsworth adds that his daughter India, 2, will occasionally point to him (as Thor) in magazines or in action figure form and say, “Papa.”

But Chris Evans, one of the cast’s resident bachelors, mentions that it’s difficult for the cast to go and hang out because, “everyone has families. I’m just sniffing out trouble on my own,” he added, to which costar Mark Ruffalo replied, “My wife won’t let me go with him.”

Ruffalo (The Hulk) adds that his son’s hair is currently dyed green, though he can’t completely chalk it up to his role.
