The Avengers teams up the various superheroes from Marvel Studio’s movie projects into one incredibly fun film (The films themselves built to this crossover in their subplots). Recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and featuring Captain America (Chris Evans) Thor (Chris Helmsworth) Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) as well as the Incredible Hulk (Third time’s casting the charm for him, played by Mark Ruffalo in his Bruce Banner form) Black Widow (Scarlet Johannsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). The various heroes must tame their egos and band together to stop Thor’s mad brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from conquering earth. Supporting characters Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) also appear. The movie’s fun, action-packed and colorful, with an excellent script and direction by Joss Whedon. Be sure to watch the credits and after the credits as well.
