Can you believe “The Avengers” is less than two months away? Damn. If you were to tell me ten years ago that I would be seeing a big-budget, studio-funded superhero team movie in 2012, I would have called you a liar. And then probably smack you for lying to me. But lo and behold, “The Avenger” will be assembling on May 4, 2012 courtesy of Marvel Studios and director Joss Whedon on the big screen, probably making all your fanboy dreams come true in the process.
One of these days comic book movies will be old hat, and probably won’t be nearly as popular as they are now, much less feature the studio backing/budget. But until that day does arrive, I’d sure like to squeeze in a couple of “Avengers” movies and maybe a “Justice League” movie or two first. What can I say? I’m greedy that way.
Whedon’s “The Avengers” stars Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, and Stellan Skarsgard.
Marvel has released six new character posters for the comic book movie to fill up your Tuesday, so have at’em.
