The Avengers is one of the most exciting movies to hit cinemas in a long time. In the last slew of Marvel comic adaptations, other Marvel characters have been namedropped as a subtle build-up to this moment. In the latest flick, Thor, a secret service agent sees a destroyer sent to Earth to destroy Thor and asks “Is that one of Starks?”
What’s also so anticipated is that all the stars of the individual films will reprise their roles for The Avengers. I remember when the idea of a Justice League movie was being discussed a few years back, Brandon Routh was ruled out, despite having recently portrayed Superman. That means Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America (even though Captain America hasn’t premiered yet!).
Also pictured in this new image are superheroes Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Mark Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk.
It’s a pretty standard superhero ensemble shot, all heroes in mid-air, poised for action. The internet would urge you to get your magnifying glasses out, because apparently Hulk doesn’t appear to be wearing any trousers! Yes, he’s fighting evil with his big green weiner – no bad guys are going to want to get thwacked by that thing!
Exciting stuff. But possibly for the wrong reasons. Right, ladies?
