The release date for The Avengers is getting excitingly close now and to get audiences even more excited, a new image of Captain America has been released.
Director of The Avengers, Joss Whedon, has said that most of the film will take place from the point of view of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. This particular superhero has a unique perspective as he is having to adjust to the modern world. Captain America has been frozen since the 1940s, so while everyone else is used to the way things are, Rogers will still be trying to figure out what’s what.
Whedon has directed some fantastic material in the past and you can take a look at our last article on him here.
The Avengers also features Robert Downey Jr. as the billionaire genius Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Lou Ferrigno as the voice of The Incredible Hulk and Chris Hemsworth as Thor. The storyline follows Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. as they unite the superheroes in order to save the world. The baddie is played by Tom Hiddleston, who goes by the name of Loki and has an army behind him.
The Avengers is highly anticipated, especially by Marvel Comics’ fans. The film is based on screenplay by Zac Penn and Joss Whedon. From the trailer, it looks like there will be lots of action and plenty of witty quips, especially from Tony Stark. You can check out the trailer here and the film will be released on April 27th in the UK.
