Along with some dismissing it as a juvenile prank, it also feels particularly awkward to put the only female Avenger in a joke like this.

Tony’s Zucchini Joke

With his sarcastic wit and quick sense of humor, Tony Stark remains one of the funniest characters in the MCU. However, Whedon seemed interested in saddling Tony with cruder jokes for the sequel, including him questioning Bruce and Natasha about a game of “hide the zucchini” in the middle of battle.

Upon re-watching the film, Redditor Skull8686 admitted that they “clash a bit more with Joss Whedon’s work” and this particular joke.

Thor’s cave scene

Although Thor’s popularity in the MCU grows over time, the first two avengers the movies don’t seem sure how to use the God of Thunder. This is especially true Avengers: Age of Ultron when Thor is sent on his own adventure to have a vision in a cave.

Wanda’s accent

Ultron forgets a word

The evil robot genius Ultron is one of the Avengers’ most powerful foes in the comics, but he ends up being one of the most disappointing MCU villains. One of the main complaints about this rendition of Ultron is how he turns into yet another jokey, sarcastic character.

One line stands out for fans where Ultron, in the middle of a badass monologue, forgets the word “children.” Redditor GamingTatertot noted its awkwardness, as it “didn’t fit in at all but with the rest of Ultron’s line”.

Bruce and Natasha talk about their romance
