Zdeno Chara can't be bothered by mere mortals.
The Boston Bruins defenseman pummeled another poor soul Tuesday night, handling New York Islanders forward Matt Martin in an entertaining but brief fight.
After the game, Chara's punching prowess drew a reaction from Brad Marchand ... and got the winger thinking.

Back in February, Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk aptly compared the 6-foot-9 Chara to Thanos, the massive super-villain who appears in Marvel's "Avengers" movies.
So, why not square Thanos up with Chris Evans, the actor who plays Captain America?
TSN tried to get in on the action by swapping Evans out for Brie Larson, who plays Captain Marvel in the film of the same name released earlier this month. But Marchand stuck to his guns ...
... Before getting a little distracted.
Yah but have you ever had a warm chocolate chip cookie AND chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream together 🤤 https://t.co/R56jzmM4sc— Brad Marchand (@Bmarch63) March 20, 2019
In any case, we like Chara's chances against the 6-foot Evans, superpowers and all. As for Marchand? At least he has a cameo in our "Avengers: Endgame" trailer.
How cool would it be if Boston sports heroes came to life in the #AvengersEndgame trailer? 🎬🍿— The Camera Guys (@NBCSCameraGuys) March 15, 2019
