‘The Avengers’ Fly, Smash & Turn Dramatically Over Soundgarden’s ‘Live to Rise’ — VIDEO

AvengersWhat if, instead of fighting the forces of evil, The Avengers started a band? A ’90s rock band that tests the waters of grunge and alternative pop! They could tour the nation, releasing enthusiastic, emotional music videos with a focus on head-turning. Now that’s a movie. And if you’ve got the same idea of entertainment, feast your eyes, ears and other cranial openings on this: Soundgarden’s “Live to Rise” video — featuring the Avengers!

The Marvel superheroes flock together in the below video. Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), their fearless leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and even the nogoodnik Loki (Tom Hiddleston) provide some musical thrills in Soundgarden’s new release.

Watch the video below, and get ready for The Avengers, in theaters on Friday, May 6!
