With Avengers: Infinity War poised to, Thanos-like, slay fully half of the world’s box office starting Friday, the Marvel movie juggernaut (no, not that one, thankfully) dispatched two teams of heroes into the late-night fray on Monday.

Jimmy Kimmel turns Stormy Daniels’ Live! appearance into a pretty gross game of charades
