I always remember my friend ‘pervy’ Pete telling me how wrong they where to choose Joss Whedon to direct The Avenger’s Movie I asked him why? “It’s because he made Buffy The Vampire Slayer!” until I explained alot of his early work was in fact in comic books, he was even involved the the first of the x-men movies too and now Pete has decided to give Whedon a chance. With comic book movies so popular with film studio’s these days and with the X-Men franchise releasing another x-men team movie chances are as remote as a scottish football team actual winning a game in European football it was no surprise that Marvel are keen to fill that space with the next best supergroup in their world, The Avengers.
Now we know the full line up, we’ve had the sneak peek at the team in Captain America , along with a few character banners to show now we have some new concept art of the team as well as Loki and Agent Fury. In the team art we see the Avengers in action with Black Widow (Scarlett Johanson) looking very sexy with her auburn hair and pvc suit, Iron Man seems to have changed his uniform slightly from the one he had in Iron Man 2, but what I can’t fathom is why Hawkeye is in shades?! Anyways I do like what im seeing here, all we need now is some teaser footage, though thats still a few months away!
The Avengers stars stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson with the movie targeting a May 2012 release.
