Preview: The Avengers (2012)
I have a feeling that one of 2012's biggest movies is going to be The Avengers, a film about a team made up of some of the world's greatest superheroes: Captain America, Iron Man, the Black Widow, Thor, the Hulk, and Hawkeye. (If you're unfamiliar with the Avengers, think of the Justice League with Superman and Batman. The Justice League is made up of DC Comics heroes, while the Avengers are Marvel Comics heroes, but the same basic concept.)
The movie will star all the original actors for each character. Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Evans is Steve Rogers/Captain America, Chris Hemsworth is Thor, and Scarlett Johansson is Natasha Romanov/Black Widow. Joining the Avengers are Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye (you'll remember Renner from the Hurt Locker, the Town, and S.W.A.T.) and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk. Also appearing in the film are Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, Paul Bettany's Jarvis, and Tom Hiddleton's Loki (from Thor).
Here's a link to an absolutely amazing fan-made trailer I found on YouTube. Pure epicness!!
I personally cannot wait for this movie to come out. I love the character of Tony Stark (Iron Man), and I really enjoyed Captain America. I've always found superhero movies to be enjoyable, maybe because they're timeless. The characters pass down from generation to generation, making the films enjoyable to all.
Ahh, I'm so excited!!!
