It’s only a few weeks now until The Avengers premieres around the world, and despite its reported 155 minute running time, Marvel are finding new ways to recut the same 30 seconds of footage. Who are we kidding? We lap this stuff up like a cat with the cream. In these latest two, about putting the team together, we get a sense that this film will have some kind of super team fighting some kind of bad dudes.
Directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel’s The Avengers is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series The Avengers, first published in 1963. The super team of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk (and some other folk) must band together to stop the world from being all destroyed and such. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson.
The Avengers is released in Australia on 25 April 2012 from Disney. It will be released in the US a week later on 4 May 2012.
