Yep, We Would Totally Watch An 'Avengers' Sitcom

Premiering never on the CW.

Perhaps you've never noticed how much the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" cast look like the stars of a primetime sitcom when they're out of costume. That's cool; neither had we. '

But now that we've seen it? Can't unsee. Too perfect. SO MUCH POTENTIAL.

Clearly, Hollywood is missing a golden opportunity to spin off the "Avengers" franchise into a Monday night small-screen dramedy about a hilarious group of misfit friends, just trying to have it all in the big city.

And while we wait for this project to happen (it is happening, right? Don't tell us it's not happening!*), MTV News has rounded up a half dozen perfect plotlines with which to kick off the first season of "How I Met Your Avengers."

*Okay, so it's probably not happening. Whatever.
