We’re not exactly sure how Avengers: Age of Ultron will end, but it probably won’t be with the team acting like they just won the Super Bowl.

Chris Hemsworth hosted Saturday Night Live last night, so it’s no surprise that we got an Avengers sketch. To be completely honest, they didn’t hit it out of the park, but you have to keep in mind that they weren’t going to make any deep cuts that only nerds will appreciate. This is a sketch for the casual moviegoer, and so it gets behind the broad concept of Thor acting like a total jackass alongside fellow Avengers Iron Man (Taran Killam as Tony Stark as Norm Macdonald‘s Burt Reynolds), Bruce Banner (Pete Davidson), Nick Fury (Jay Pharoah) and Captain America (Beck Bennett) on live TV. The only big reveal is that Thor has an Australian accent.

Check out the sketch below. Find out how the movie will end for real when Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in 3D on May 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron:

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
