Today we have our first look at ‘The Avengers’, Marvel’s epic superhero movie. The film stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as the evil Loki and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.
In a recent interview, Evans told The Huffington Post that he wasn’t sure what to think of the film before shooting began, but he’s more than happy with the result.
“Going into it, you’re like, who knows? I don’t know how this is gonna go,” he admitted. “There’s a lot of big actors, a lot of big egos, everyone has their own thing going. I can’t say enough; it couldn’t have gone better. I have high hopes. I hope it’s awesome.”
Assuring us that the film balanced action and substance, he shouted out Whedon, creator of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and fanboy pinup, for his work putting it together.
“It’s not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about Joss is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy,” he said. “It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes. And if Joss is happy with the dialog, if Joss is happy with the wardrobe, if Joss is happy, then I’m happy. Because he’s Comic-Con, he’s one of these dudes who would be in the audience geeking out, so if he’s happy, I’m happy.”
I love superhero movies. GOOD superhero movies, that is. I truly hope this movie is better than the trailer. The trailer is…. boring! Isn’t it? After watching the trailer – I found myself thinking “that’s it?”.
With all that talent – I was really hoping the trailer would just blow me away. But it didn’t. There wasn’t anything spectacular about it.
Watch the trailer below! Also – here are a bunch of pictures from the set back in September.
