Good news for superhero lovers. The Avengers: Written and directed by Joss Whedon starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk , Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow , Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye , Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Chris Hemsworth as Thor. The movie has only gotten good reviews and I’m very excited to see it myself. The directing is superb, obviously. Joss Whedon has had experience making epic movies before. Some of my favorites include Serenity and Alien Resurrection. With The Avengers i’m mainly looking forward to watching some of my favorite actors run around in those crazy superhero costumes! The transformation is astonishing and I think it’s worth taking a look at:
This to that and still attractive as ever! Scarlett Johansson is really all the eye candy any movie needs. Attractive girls are always a plus. And look how low she’s getting! That’s athleticism for you. I’m exhausted just by looking at her. It’s fantastic!
Next is Mark Ruffalo. His transformation, in all honesty, is probably the most impressive. I am not at all a fan of the Hulk movies, but i’m very excited about the Hulk in The Avengers. Standing about 9ft tall, the Hulk will no doubt be a powerful ally to the “Avengers”.
Chris Hemsworth goes through a pretty drastic transformation as well. Thor is the son of Odin and God of Thunder. It seems to me that Thor in a league of his own, but I guess we’ll just have to see. I would definitely want to be on this guys’ team, that’s all i’m saying.
Jeremy Renner has been one of my favorite actors since the movie S.W.A.T. came out. His performance in the newest Mission Impossible was outstanding. A very versatile actor that has a lot of potential and i think will do good in this role.
Chris Evans as Captain America, but with more attitude. In The Avengers, Captain America is trying to come to terms with the modern world. If you remember in his last film, Chris Evans wakes up in a totally different time period than when he goes unconscious. It will be interesting to see how adapts to his surroundings during the movie. It can’t be all that bad having superhuman strength and all, can it? Captain America will undoubtedly be an asset to the “Avengers” and their team of misfits.
Tony Stark (AKA Robert Downey Jr.) is another fan favorite. Good looks, style, money and kick ass super hero armor he designed himself, what more could you want? In Iron Man, which was an original story, Tony was on his and out to prove himself. Iron Man 2 was all about him making space for others and dealing with legacy issues… In The Avengers, he’s throwing it down with the others. The Avengers is looking to be another action packed thrill ride with even more to offer than any of the prequels.
Last, but most certainly not least: Nick Fury. Played by Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Fury actually made appearances in both Iron Man movies, Thor and Captain America. Personally, I am a fan of sequels. Not all sequels live up to the original, but I believe this movie has the potential to be even better.
Nick Fury acts as former head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and as an intermediary between the U.S. government and the various superheroes. He is tasked with assembling the “Avengers” and making sure this movie has a Hollywood ending.
All things considered, The Avengers is a must see. I’ll see you there.
