The Avengers play kabaddi, gully cricket, drive an auto in India!


The Avengers are scheduled to blast off into outer space to battle intergalactic super villain Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). And, of course, two of them – Hulk and Thor, are set to fight Hela in Thor: Ragnarok next month (November 3). But before they do, Iron Man, the Hulk and other members of the team took a detour to India; because even superheroes need a vacation.
The Avengers were spotted indulging in some desi fun. From a game of kabaddito a match of gully cricket to even driving an auto rickshaw in Mumbai, the Hulk, Captain America, Black Panther and Iron Man did everything they could to get as authentic an Indian experience as possible.

You can catch all their shenanigans on Marvel’s new Instagram page dedicated solely to Indian fans: @Marvel_India. The page, now live, is a way for Marvel to give back some of the massive love the Avengers series (along with other projects from the brand) have gotten from India. So, here’s a sneak peek into the Avengers’ Indian vacation!

The Avengers, a 2012 American superhero film based on Marvel Comics’ superhero team of the same name, was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
