Friday Beefcake: The Avengers

Jeremy Renner

As you may have heard, a little movie called The Avengers is finally out in U.S. theaters today. Given the amount of beefcake this movie provides, we felt we had no choice but to dedicate this week’s Friday Beefcake to Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye/Clint Barton), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man/Tony Stark), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk/Bruce Banner), Chris Hemsworth (Thor/god of thunder), and—because we love the bad boys too—Tom Hiddleston (Loki/the trickster god).

(With a special cameo appearance from Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff, just ’cause she looks pretty badass too.) Robert Downey Jr.

Chris Evans

Mark Ruffalo

Chris Hemsworth

Tom Hiddleston


Scarlett Johansson

Aside from the incredible amount of action, I'm seeing The Avengers for Jeremy Renner's arms, Robert Downey Jr.'s snark, Sam Jackson's eye patch, and Chris Evan's chin. There, I've admitted it. :-)

Nothing wrong with admiting biceps are a bonus on this one.

@BrooklynShoeBabe -- Everyone is SO HOT; you will not be disappointed, as I'm sure you already know. :) I should have included Nick Fury and Maria Hill and maybe even Phil Coulson...SHIELD came off as pretty kick-ass too and I hope there one day is a movie devoted to them as people have speculated.

@ChelseaMueller -- Right there with you! I had actually found a picture of Thor I liked better, but I had to go with this one because it showed off the arms so well.

Ohh Jeremy Renner. I would like to personally thank you for making my Friday. I mean it...personally.

To think at one were so close to me!

Gotta go wipe the drool...

Just came back from seeing this movie with my kids. AMAZING. Pitch perfect storytelling, solid acting, not a weak performance in the bunch. LOVED it. Plan to see it again. I think I'm in love with Hawkeye.

@JLObrien -- He's fabulous, I agree! :)

@Allison-Brennan -- Wasn't it just?! I came out of the theater SO excited. I haven't had that much fun at the movies in...have I ever had that much fun at a movie?! I don't know. (HAWKEYE! You are not alone.)

Normally..I don't share well (lol) but I suggest looking up the new Bourne Legacy movie trailer. Jeremy Renner plays the main character Aaron Cross...the movie looks good (and so does he). will give you a bit of a Renner fix on the cheap :)

And so will Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

And my good deeds for day are complete :)

I've been crushin' on Jeremy Renner since "The Unusuals" was on TV a few years ago (sad it only lasted one season, but also very glad because he's had so much more opportunity since then). I'm so, SO glad his talent and other wonderful qualities (HOTNESS!) are finally being appreciated on a larger scale! Can't wait to see The Avengers (hopefully this weekend or next) and can't wait for Bourne Legacy!

Just saw this, and they all had moments of kick-assness for me. Needed the Stark/RDJ humor as leavening. Okay, I found Scarlett slightly wooden, but I liked her character, so what does that mean? I have to say my faves are the Asgardians, especially Tom Hiddleston! I love the evil and the Hellboy helmet. I did also enjoy the (lack of) Avengers team chemistry very much, but I was asking my husband later about Nick Fury's right-hand SHIELD maiden, and he said "Oh, you mean the model with the cut on her face?" LOL

I gotta say, I have a serious crush on Agent Colson!
