So in the behind the scenes featurette, Chris Hemsworth describes RDJ as the godfather of the Avengers…
And I, of course, start thinking of Mafia/Avengers crossovers… You know Tony’s the Godfather, he makes people offers they can’t refuse. Bruce Banner is a man who needs to disappear, so Tony does him a ‘favor’. This of course puts him in debt to the Godfather. Steve Rogers is the detective trying to expose the Mafia, but he gets compromised by getting pulled in too deep. Natasha works as a secret operative for Tony, sussing out business deals and making sure no one’s squalling like pigs to the police. Thor and Loki are from another mafia family that works with Tony’s ‘family’, but Loki starts playing all the angels to distinguish himself as an individual worthy of running his own syndicate. He even offers Commissioner Fury and Agent Clint ‘the Hawkeye’ Barton deals to expose Tony’s operation….
And then I realize I have too much writing to do as is….still, imagining the look of it is fun :)
