Here's what the 'Avengers' cast looked like when they were kids

Over the years since the first Iron Man (has it really been a decade?) the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown bigger and bigger. That means that not only are there more outlandish heroes dominating the box office, but the cast of each Avengers movie has gotten extremely long. The latest entry in the series, Avengers: Infinity War, had a huge cast to juggle.

Actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have been in these movies long enough that we've seen them age alongside their characters - but what did they all look like when they were kids?

1. Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch)

2. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther)

3. Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk)

4. Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange)

5. Tom Holland (Spider-Man)

6. Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man)

7. Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow)

8. Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier)

9. Chris Hemsworth (Thor)

10. Chris Pratt (Star-Lord)

11. Zoe Saldana (Gamora)

12. Tom Hiddleston (Loki)

13. Chris Evans

While there aren't many flashbacks to the childhoods of these superheroes, I'm sure we can all convince ourselves that Scarlet Witch had braces or that Loki looked that adorable before he tried to take over the world.
