The Avengers might be splintered and lost currently in the MCU, but Avengers: Endgame has set things up so that the original six Avengers in the MCU could finally reunite against on screen for the first time since Avengers: Age of Ultron. To celebrate and anticipate this, we‘ve put together a list of 10 of the best quotes from Avengers films or that were said by one of the original six. From hilarious quotes to inspiring ones, these lines are iconic ones from the MCU that fans love.
10 I CAN DO THIS ALL DAY
This quote is said by Captain America multiple times in the MCU and sort of sums the character up in a very succinct way. Captain America is a man that doesn’t quit. He’s very stubborn and he always does his best to do the right thing and save the day. Even at times when maybe he should change course, he’s committed to seeing his plan through even if it means sacrificing himself.
9 IF WE CAN’T PROTECT THE EARTH...
"Cause if we can't protect the Earth, you can be damn sure we'll avenge it"
Tony Stark says this line towards the end of the first Avengers film. This is an inspiring moment that shows that the Avengers are learning to work together as a team and be one unit. Tony says this line with a lot of conviction, and it lets audiences know that the Avengers won’t stop trying to save the world, even if they mess up at first. This was definitely a line that fans will remember and that deserves a cheer.
8 THERE WAS AN IDEA...
"There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if we could become something more"
This quote by Nick Fury is one that resonates throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Said in Avengers, this line explains the idea behind the Avengers Initiative and what the Avengers were meant to be.
While the Avengers haven’t always worked together as a team, when they’re at their best, they become more than their individual powers and become a team that has the ability to truly keep the world safe.
7 I UNDERSTOOD THAT REFERENCE.
While many of the best quotes from our favorite Avenger are more serious, wise, or inspiring, the MCU is also full of a lot of humor. One of the best things about the MCU is seeing the heroes riff off each other and throw out some witty one-liners. This hilarious moment in Avengers gives some insight into Captain America’s character and shows that while he might be a man out of time, he can also be pretty funny. This line also highlights the disparate pasts and backgrounds that the individual Avengers have.
6 IF WE’RE GOING TO WIN THIS FIGHT...
"If we're going to win this fight, some of us might have to lose it"
While there isn’t been a lot of Hawkeye in the MCU in the past couple of years, he is set to return again in Avengers: Endgame. In Avengers, Hawkeye had a lot of hilarious moments and was also a skilled archer and member of the team. This line form Hawkeye reveals a truth about how the Avengers often function in the MCU. Sometimes, they can’t all win. This could even be some kind of foreshadowing to what might happen in Endgame as many people speculate that not all of the heroes will make it out alive.
5 IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN DO?
Thor is a Norse God and also a hilarious person. Thor’s good nature and battle skills make him enjoyable to watch and a great team member. Thor’s taunting line here might not have been the best thing to say, as, of course, things always get worse after saying a line like this. Thor is an integral member of the Avengers, and while he spent much of Endgame with the Guardians of the Galaxy, he is likely going to be spending more time with the original Avengers in this last film.
4 THE CITY IS FLYING AND WE’RE FIGHTING AN ARMY OF ROBOTS...
"The city is flying and we're fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense."
This is another classic quote form Hawkeye said in Avengers: Age of Ultron. With this quote, Hawkeye calls out just how wild and ridiculous the situation the Avengers have found themselves in actually is.
While aliens flying through New York City might have seemed pretty out there for the time, it was sort of just the tip of the iceberg of all the things that the Avengers would have to face in the MCU. Battling Ultron and his robot army in the sky was something else altogether!
3 THESE GUYS COME FROM LEGEND, CAPTAIN...
"These guys come from legend, Captain. They're basically Gods."
Black Widow says this line towards the start of Avengers. Widow is warning Cap not to engage considering how strong Loki and Thor are, but, of course, Captain America can never keep himself from a fight. Even though Thor might be the only god in the Avengers, all of the other members of the team have their own unique skills to offer. Even Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Iron Man who aren’t technically super-powered are integral.
2 ...PEOPLE MIGHT NEED A LITTLE OLD FASHIONED
"With everything that's happening, the things that are about to come to light, people might need a little old fashioned"
Phil Coulson hasn't been in any MCU films since Avengers, which is still such a shame. While he has featured in the Agents of Shield television show, this fan-favorite could have had a lot more to offer the Avengers. Phil Coulson always believed in the Avengers, especially in heroes like Captain America. In this quote, he encourages Steve to take up the Captain America mantle and inspire people once again.
1 I STILL BELIEVE IN HEROES
Nick Fury says this inspiring quote in Avengers. While Nick Fury might be a complicated character, he was instrumental in getting the Avengers together to save the world. Just like Nick Fury, audiences wanted to believe in the Avengers and hearing this line was definitely a rallying moment for the team as well as for fans of the MCU.
