The Avengers: Age of Ultron media blitz has finally commenced.

The Avengers cast visited Jimmy Kimmel last night to answer some fan questions, play some games, and generally steal the show. First up: a game of telephone.

As a precursor to Captain America and Iron Man going up against each other in Captain America: Civil War, the Avengers split in two for a round of Family Feud. A smart choice because, after years on the Marvel publicity trail, the Avengers cast basically are a family. They certainly bicker like one, anyway.

While the Avengers actors are obviously adorable in their own right, Kimmel decided to up the ante with a new vision for the franchise: AvenGerbils: Hamster of Thor. If you’ve ever felt a burning need to see a Marvel trailer reenacted by cute little rodents, now’s your chance.

The actors also chatted a little about their time on set, but by now you should know the drill: No new information about Avengers: Age of Ultron, and definitely no spoilers. At this point, they’re all very adept at steering the conversation back to safe topics, like Mark Ruffalo’s unflattering Hulk leotard and the fact that Robert Downey Jr. is totally the diva boss of the team. However, if you stuck around until the end of the episode, you did get a Marvel-style post-credits scene starring Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd.
