Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has recently given an interview revealing the piece of information many comic and sf fans have been waiting to hear for many years now. He explained which super heroes will form the main body of the highly-anticipated "The Avengers". According to him the movie will gather Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Nick Fury together in one super powerful team:
My concern is that when we launch a franchise, whichever character's franchise that may be, it should stand on its own two feet. So by the time "The Avengers" comes in 2012, it's not just a team superhero movie with a bunch of characters with powers. It's three people - four including the Hulk, five including Nick Fury - who you've seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time.
"The Avengers" are set to be released on May 4, 2012, following "Iron Man2", "Thor" and "The First Avenger: Captain America".
