What better place to make an announcement about your biggest comic book movie project than at the premiere Comic Book Convention? Marvel Comics thought so, and even though the Avengers film is a couple of years away, they pulled the trigger on unveiling The Avengers cast.
The cast and director all gathered together at Hall H near the end of the day on Saturday, July 25 to rev up the flagging spirits of fatigued fans. As to the who is playing whom and is being directed by who…..
…the scorecard as per E!Online reads thusly:
Director: Joss Whedon
IronMan: Robert Downey Jr.
Thor: Chris Hemsworth
Captain America: Chris Evans
Hawkeye: Jeremy Renner
Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson
Black Widow: Scarlett Johansson
Hulk: Mark Ruffalo
Of special note is that rumours about Ed Norton being replaced by Mark Ruffalo turned out to be true.
The inevitable webpage has been set up for the Avengers movie.
