Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey, Jr. assemble in new banner from The Avengers
It’s been about two days since we’ve had any news on Joss Whedon’s upcoming film THE AVENGERS so it’s about time for another fix, don’t you think? Earlier this week Marvel Studios released a bunch of character posters for the film and today we see that all the pictures have been put together in a banner that appropriately displays the heroes in all their glory. Although it does look like Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) are getting most of the love in this banner which I suppose isn’t too surprising. Chris Evans and Robert Downey, Jr. did do a fantastic job as Captain America and Iron Man, but I’m still on the fence about Chris Hemsworth as Thor (though to be fair that was really just a bad movie not necessarily bad acting). I have complete faith in director Joss Whedon and know that he will give us a great film that will showcase all these talented actors and make them shine.
In case you somehow missed what the film is about, here is the official synopsis: “Marvel’s The Avengers is the superhero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.” It does indeed sound like a good time and I am personally thrilled to see another superhero film this summer (especially if it has Chris Evans in it, he really does make a great Captain America).
THE AVENGERS stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Stellan Skarsgard (Erik Selvig). The Joss Whedon directed film hits theaters on May 4th, 2012. And remember that tickets have already gone on sell, so if you are desperate to see this opening day then you better get your act together because a lot of cities have already sold out for the opening weekend.
