The 'Avengers' Cast Handled Jimmy Kimmel's Mean Tweets Like True Superheroes

"Ever notice that Samuel L. Jackson looks like a snapping turtle?"

To mark the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Jimmy Kimmel gathered a host of Marvel stars to partake in one of his favorite traditions — reading mean tweets for the camera. Yes, it's true. Even superheroes have haters, as proven by all the ridiculous insults to be found on social media.


Stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, and Elizabeth Olsen participated in the segment, with "Everybody Hurts" as the perfect background music. If they weren't your heroes before, they will be when you see how well they handle the internet's rudeness — with good humor and the occasional comeback.

Check out a few of our favorite reactions below:

Scarlett Johansson was taken aback by her tweet's sudden turn. "All of us?" she wondered.

Benedict Cumberbatch didn't seem offended by one Twitter user's suggestion that he has a shellfish allergy.

The show provided a helpful visual aid to go along with Samuel L. Jackson's tweet, which he seemed to enjoy.
