Check Out The 'Avengers' Special Edition Of 'Celebrities Read Mean Tweets'

What better way to mark the US opening of the Avengers: Infinity War than with a special edition of Jimmy Kimmel's Celebrities Read Mean tweets? The regular series sees much-loved famous faces forced to read out some of the cruellest things people have said about them online and it's bloody brilliant, isn't it?


For this special edition, Samuel L Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Don Cheadle, Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Dave Bautista all took part, proving themselves to be good sports as well as superheroes.

Having to read: "Okay, how did the coolest blackest dude in the galaxy end up with a whitebread-ass name like Chadwick?" was almost too much for Chadwick Boseman, who couldn't stop himself from laughing before he got to the end.


Chris Evans also got an attack of the giggles when he read: "Perhaps Chris Evans is in truth a great actor but he plays Captain America like he's a big dumb hunk of shit."

Another Twitter user pointed out Elizabeth Olsen's weird thumbs - but fair play to them, she does have weird thumbs. In fact, Elizabeth agreed, saying: "It's true, I do. I have weird thumbs," before flexing them, weirdly. Check out those bad boys:

And now you've heard: "Benedict Cumberbatch always looks like he's had an allergic reaction to bad shrimp," tell me that isn't going to cross your mind every single time you see him. See?


Meanwhile, poor Dave Bautista has to read a tweet from an account called @Wehatedbatista, so it's fair to say he's got himself into someone's bad books. Never mind, Drax mate.

Despite the keyboard warriors' comments, the latest Avengers has been a box office smash - taking a record-breaking $250 million (£182.6m) in ticket sales in the States this weekend, beating Star Wars: The Force Awakens to have the highest opening weekend of all time.

According to estimates, the film is on-track to set a new global opening weekend record, raking it a whopping $640.9m (£468.8m) - despite not even being released in China yet, which is the second biggest movie market in the world.
