So, you are a fan of Marvel comics, or a fan of Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America or Iron Man? Well if you are you should brace yourself for a wild ride in the middle of 2012. The Avengers will be released in May 2012 in the United States and will feature all 4 of these heroes. It’s bound to one ass-kicking ride (if you ask me). This film is written and directed by Joss Whedon (the creator of TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Dollhouse). The film will feature appearances by Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Dr. Bruce Banner / Hulk), Chris Elmsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders (of How I Met Your Mother fame), Gwyneth Paltrow, Amanda Righetti and various other actors and actresses (basically a star-studded cast). In The Avengers the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency brings together a team of superhumans to help save Earth from annihilation by extraterrestrial invaders. If you haven’t figured it out by now, the film is based upon the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name.
I am really looking forward to this film. I enjoyed all the films which have been the back story for it (The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America). If you watch all these films till the end of the credits there’s sneak peeks about The Avengers (for those of you who did not know). This film is without a doubt one of the most-anticipated films of 2012. The film has an estimated budget of $220 million. The Avengers was shot at different locations all over the United States.
This is the recently released trailer for The Avengers:
This is going to be fun, action-packed ride (in my humble opinion). What do you think of The Avengers? Is this film on your must-see list of movies for 2012 now that you have watched trailer?
