Can the Avengers, one of the most
powerful superhero teams of all time, be compared to Friends, one of the most popular sitcoms of of all time?
If you consider their
bickering, mismatched personalities, each with their own agendas and subplots, then the two aren’t far off.
‘The Avengers’ gets a ‘Friends’ cast revamp.
If you took the Avengers, but
removed all of their abilities, intelligence, superpowers, and rugged strength, than you’d be watching an episode of Friends.
Now all we need is a comic book version of
Friends. I have yet to see one, that is, unless you take Archie Comics into consideration. Think that’s what they based Friends off of?
As for who’d play who if you really replaced
with that of The Avengers‘s cast Friends, here are my picks:
Joey is Captain America, both with their innocent, naive sensibilities and never give up qualities. (Image: “ Matt Le Blanc” by photo by Alan Light)
Rachel could easily play Black Widow in place of Scarlett Johansson. Both with the looks and the adaptability to new situations. (Image: “ JenniferAniston08TIFF” by gdcgraphics)
Chandler’s normal temperament quite fits the Hulk. He could one day have had enough of Joey and transform into this huge monster. (Image: “ Matthew Perry by David Shankbone (cropped)” by David Shankbone)
Phoebe could make a great Thor. These days in the comic books, Thor is a female anyway. Both seem to have that otherworldly quality. (Image: “ Lisa Kudrow 2“)
Ross comes across as a great Hawkeye. Just let him get in a survival situation and he’ll pull through every time. (Image: “ David Schwimmer 2005 Madagascar” by Jason Broersma)
Monica could play Iron Man. I guess it’d be Iron Woman. She’s smart, classy, and knows how to take care of business. (Image: “ Courteney Cox ’10 PaleyFest” by Albert Domasin)
