Coming Soon! THE AVENGERS
2012 may prove to be the biggest year for comic book movies yet. In addition to Marc Webb's reboot The Amazing Spider-Man and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, his final entry in his Batman trilogy, the summer will also see the release of Joss Whedon's The Avengers. The film is a culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, bringing together a number of characters including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, and various others that have made appearances in virtually every Marvel-produced film since 2008's Iron Man. Based on this first trailer, it still looks like Robert Downey Jr.'s charismatic Tony Stark will be the centre of attention, but if anyone will be able to balance all of these characters it's Buffy and Firefly creator Joss Whedon. Here's hoping, too, he'll be able to impart his own brilliant brand of wit and style to this juggernaut of a film.
