Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner in more images from The Avengers
Even more photos have cropped up for THE AVENGERS from director Joss Whedon. Chris Evans is as always front and center here as Captain America, but we also get some good shots of Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner (sadly no good Hulk shot). I guess it’s safe to assume that Chris Evans (or Captain America shall we say) will be the main attraction in this film since it seems that the majority of the marketing has been surrounding him. However, I’m personally excited to see Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark back in action, his dry sense of humor and superiority just make me smile.
Here’s the official synopsis for THE AVENGERS: “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.” Hopefully there will be sequels galore and I’m sure Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth are thanking their lucky stars for being cast in these roles. I’m sure they’ll all be able to milk this franchise for years to come. Heck, Chris Evans may even be able to get more Captain America films alone.
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. Tickets are already on sale so if you are eager to see this opening day, you better get with it! (Moviezine)
