Avengers Assemble! Marvel’s Super Team Coming to the Big Screen
Production has started on Disney’s first full length feature film that takes place in the Marvel universe since Disney purchased Marvel back in 2009. Marvel’s The Avengers is set to be released Summer 2012 and it is sure to be a huge summer blockbuster with an amazing cast that consists of a few well known stars.
The movie features many of Marvel’s superheros that have spanned the many pages of the successful comic series since 1963. Robert Downey Jr will return to his role of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, Samuel L. Jackson will be playing Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth will return to his role of Thor, Captain America will be played by Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner will play Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo plays The Hulk, and the lovely Scarlett Johansson will round out the cast as Black Widow.
The world is faced with disaster as an unexpected enemy rises up to threaten security, civilization and the world as we know it. It is up to Nick Fury, the acting director of the SHIELD, to assemble a team of superheros that only the Marvel Universe could supply. This team will be responsible for one small task, saving the world.
This is the first film to feature so many superheros on the Silver screen at one time. Joining the huge all star cast is a creative production team full of Oscar winning talent. Alexandra Byrne, who won an Oscar for costume design will lend her talents to the motion picture. The visual effects will be supervised by Oscar winner, Janek Sirrs and the special effects will be supervised by, Dan Sudick, who has been nominated for four Oscars.
Can this cast of star studded talent and Oscar winning production team create a movie that will live up to Marvel’s superhero status? We will have to wait until Summer 2012 to find out.
