"THE AVENGERS" TEAM REVEALED

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".

  1. What about Spider-man? I guess he's getting shafted because of the reboot...

  3. Well this film has been in development for a long time, and never heard that Spider-man was ever going to be in it.

  5. I think Spiderman was never meant for this film simply because he was never a member of Avengers team. At least not until recent years. And I think they're going for some kind of an origin/first_meeting story for this film. Maybe there will be room for Spiderman in Avengers 2 or 3.

    So far all this team (in film) needs is a female member. Even if it's a token female character, just like 50-60 years ago when Avengers were first published.
    Too bad. We've waited decades for females to take more prominent role in comic book stories. It looks like we'll have to repeat the process (to some degree) with comic book films.

  6. Female hero might still appear, this is just the first time anyone from Marvel has spoken about THE AVENGERS movie openly.

  7. Yes. They might include some female hero.

  8. Yes, for example I think we've mentioned Wasp before, that she might appear in the movie. I'm just not sure whether they really mean to make the movie with just these five big superheroes, or will there be some supporting ones as well in the background.
