What Would ‘The Avengers’ Look Like as a 70s TV Cop Show?

It’s inevitable: one day there will be an ‘Avengers’ reboot. It’s hard to think of now, as ‘Avengers 2‘ hasn’t even hit theaters and Phase 3 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe hasn’t even begun yet, but once Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner all play through their contracts, Marvel is going to have to start over. Now, we don’t think Marvel would ever reboot ‘The Avengers’ as a 70s detective TV series, but if they did? It’d look a lot like this…

Shared by Mark Ruffalo himself on his Tumblr (Mark Ruffalo has a Tumblr?!), it’s a series of animated GIFs from ‘Zodiac’, ‘Rush’, ‘American Hustle’, ‘Under the Skin’ and ‘Fierce People’ as if they were all part of some glorious TV show where, instead of fighting Chitauris and Ultrons, the Avengers were actually NYPD detectives in the 1970s.

Unfortunately, it may be a while until we get our first look at the real sequel as the ‘Avengers 2′ trailer isn’t expected to hit theaters until November, likely with ‘Big Hero 6‘. So, this will have to suffice.

‘The Avengers 2′ opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.
