Clint has given each Avenger a name in sign language. Thor is the letter ‘T’ in the motion of a hammer. Steve is a salute with an “R”. Hulk is an “H” over the bicep, but Bruce is the sign for doctor followed by the letter “B”. Natasha is an “N” being shot from his other wrist like a widow bite. His own name is a “C” being drawn back like a bow. Stark is an “S” taking flight, unless Barton is mad at him, then he fingerspells “A.S.” for Anthony Stark, but accidentally on purpose adds a second “S”.
actually this is how giving names work in sign language! usually you sign the first letter of the persons name and a motion that summarises them as a person, or something that reminds you of them!
Peter Q: Or sometimes we play monopoly.
Obvious, but: this is especially poignant because they weren’t on speaking terms at the time. I mean John prettied himself up and had been on his way back to Sherlock when he was abducted, but I don’t think Sherlock knew about that. The last words John said to him before this moment appear to have been “Fuck off.” And Sherlock accepted that.
You may not want me in your life anymore, John Watson, but there’s no way I’m going to let you die.

Joss Whedon for The Avengers DVD commentary:
Get ready for Chris Evans’ jaw. The greatest jaw in the film. Get ready. Here it comes… Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! That’s right! That’s a hero!
This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke.
This is pretty much the equation:
women receiving abuse = PG-13/R
women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17
Ugh. I did a speech on this shit, and watched the documentary about it. Pisses me the fuck off.
So absolutely ridiculous. Yes, please, show us being raped, murdered, mutilated; but don’t you dare show us engaging in sexual gratification. Because that would be…obscene.
the reason old memes always come back is because, in order to truly destroy a meme, you must cast it into the fires of mount doom and sadly
oh my god
