- Coming Soon: The Avengers  -
As steps are taken towards the release of this definite blockbuster, I figured I'd dedicate a post, to what will surely be one of the greatest comic book/superhero (DC/Marvel) movies ever made. As of now, this film is in pre-production, but for the most part, the cast has been confirmed. Here are some details and photos on "The Avengers".
Robert Downey Jr ... Tony Stark/Iron Man
Scarlett Johansson ... Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
Chris Evans ... Steve Rogers/Captain America
Chris Hemsworth ... Thor
Samuel L. Jackson ... Nick Fury
Jeremy Renner ... Clint Barton/Hawkeye
Mark Ruffalo ... Bruce Banner
Lou Ferrigno ... Hulk (Voice)
Clark Gregg ... Agent Phil Coulson
Don Cheadle ... Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes/War Machine
Tom Hiddleston ... Loki
Status: Pre-production, set to begin shooting in early 2011.
Release Date: May 4, 2012
Budget: $150,000,000 (Estimated)
-Edward Norton was originally set to reprise his role from The Incredible Hulk (2008) but negotiations between him and Marvel Studios broke down. Norton was replaced with Mark Ruffalo.
