A peek inside the Avengers’ apartments during the holidays as we hang out by their fireplaces.
I posted these Marvel Fireside Heroes videos back in 2016 (between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War in the MCU timeline) and just came across them as I was looking at old holiday posts. They’re so much fun, I decided to share them with y’all once again, since most of us are on lockdown this holiday season and have been staring at the same screens for months. They are like Yule log videos, but instead we’re sitting in Steve Rogers’ apartment, listening to swing jazz versions of Christmas carols for an hour as we watch his fire, or on the Guardians of the Galaxy’s spaceship watching Baby Groot dance next to the fire.
Each video is filled with tiny details, like the pictures of Bucky, Peggy and his mom that Steve has next to the fire, and his original USO tour shield hung over the mantel. One chair leg is held up by a stack of books, because Steve is still a thrifty Depression era guy at heart. The apartment furnishings look like they could be straight from the forties, just like Steve himself. It’s a lonely looking place, from a lonely time in his life, but we could totally join him and make it better, right?
Captain America’s Brooklyn Apartment Fireside video. The close up version is above:
Under the cut: Thor, Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, the Guardians & Deadpool
This is the full view Guardian’s Spaceship video. Y’all will probably appreciate the up close version below more, though, since it has a much better view of tiny dancer Baby Groot dancing to 70s electronic-style We Wish You a Merry Christmas in front of a crackling fire (or ball of electrical static, anyway?).
Thor’s home is suitably Norse, with imposing furnishings and creaking, howling wind sounds behind the fire crackles. There’s also a close up version, in case you wanted a better look at those gilt ram’s heads.
Here’s Tony Stark’s Manhattan apartment and fireplace. Not only does he have a giant portrait of himself, but he has four decapitated Iron Man helmets on the mantel. You can see them better in the close up version. Is it me, or are these getting more and more disturbing as we go along? I’m just going to hope Tony redecorated this room after Pepper moved out, in a fit of aggression aimed at validating his life choices.
Ms. Marvel’s living room is from a very basic suburban American home. We can hear some typical family sounds in the background, like a dog barking, dishes clanging together, water running, and voices from another room. It sounds like we’ve caught the family in the kitchen during dinner.
Last year’s Deadpool Yule Log video. Let’s just say it’s in character with his sense of humor. On the plus side, it does have music in the background. Deadpool has surprisingly refined taste in Christmas music.
