My father's House of Pain

That brings up an important point: does anyone else feel distracted by the House Of Pain shirt that Dante wears in Clerks? it seems to locate the specific year of the movie in a way that feels like it's making fun of me, like me personally

Also, commenting makes the previous comments go away in RA as well, but I still hate griphus.

not to threadsit but i feel like this whole thing is kind of getting derailed? and I'd like to keep such an important discussion on topic? So let's go through the gif and figure out what kinds of sounds these men are making:

Thor: hurrf
Thor and Loki: Thor goes hmph, Loki goes aa
Cap and BP: BP goes YAA, Cap goes MMMT
Doctor Strange: Benedict goes laLA
Vision: i think he just hums

I gotta say I love Black Panther's little heel click there. I kind of expect him to tap dance off after whoever he's chasing.

In the one where the four of them run two-by-two with a little jump at a certain point, I expected them to break into the choreography from West Side Story.

Yeah, I guess if you've never heard of Earth-54, that's true.

Can't believe the mods kept the thread by the fake jumper boy. Hey, Greg Nog, name your three favorite jumps from the X-Cutioner's Song arc. Go on. Just three.

Yeah, I thought so.

These are great, but it's worth noting that George Reeves didn't have the benefit of CGI and still looked awesome.

From imdb:
Episodes routinely required him to jump from significant heights to simulate Superman landing in frame or hitting a springboard with enough force to propel him out of frame. A frequent stunt required Reeves to grab a bar (outside of camera range) and swing in through a window, clearing his own height (over six foot) and landing on his feet. Reeves had mastered this gymnastic move so well that he could perform the stunt and immediately deliver his dialog without the need to cut to another angle.
