Avengers Assemble…Sort Of.

Our friends over at Walt Disney Studios had this photo and bit of information to share with you today:

“Production has commenced today in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated movie “Marvel’s The Avengers,” directed by Joss Whedon (“Serenity”) from a screenplay by Whedon. The film will continue principal photography in Cleveland, Ohio and New York City. Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) returns as the iconic Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) as Thor, Chris Evans (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Captain America, Jeremy Renner (“Thor,” “The Hurt Locker”) as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo (“The Kids Are Alright”) as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson (“Iron Man 2”) as Black Widow, Clark Gregg (“Iron Man,” “Thor”) as Agent Phil Coulson, and Samuel L. Jackson (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) as Nick Fury. Set for release in the US on May 4, 2012, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the first feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009.”

Today also marks the the release of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on DVD. You can pick up both volumes at major retailers everywhere and let me say that the series does not disappoint.

    I would love it if the Hulk in the Avengers movie was the 1970’s comics Hulk who liked puppies. I hope he calls Thor ‘Long Hair’.

  2. I just hope there is a scene with the Hulk sitting in a canyon in New Mexico…eating from a can of beans. If they put that in the movie then it can do no wrong!

    I too hope he calls Thor, ‘Long Hair’. :)
