Avengers Assemble – Cast Announced For Marvel’s Avengers Movie


Marvel brought out its all-star cast for its superhero team movie, The Avengers,” confirming Mark Ruffalo as the actor to play the Hulk.

The move was the topper to what was probably the most boisterous Comic Con panel of 2010, and followed closely by the incredibly well-received presentation for “Captain America” and “Thor.”

Samuel Jackson appeared on stage to introduce the initial “Avengers” cast: Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and then…Robert Downey Jr.

The crowd, already on their feet, became even more frenzied, as Downey took to the podium, asking them if they had seen “Inception.”

“That was the most ambitious movie I’ve ever seen,” he said. “Then I thought: Wait a Goddamned minute. Marvel is going to take all of their top superheroes and put them together in one movie. THAT is the most ambitious movie ever.”

He then brought Jeremy Renner, who is playing Hawkeye on stage, followed by, “Playing the role of Bruce Banner…Mark Ruffalo!”

The movie’s director Joss Whedon then came out, addressing the crowd: “This is the ‘Avengers.’ They are  more than the sum of its parts.”

He then said, “I’m going to blow it. I’m not up to it I’m very nervous. I need your love and your support.”

And through cheering and hollering, the crowd did indeed show him love and support.

  1. I know people want Edward Norton as Dr. Banner, but this is the 2nd incarnation so a third one aint going to be lifechanging. Hulk will still be Hulk!!!

  2. N0000000 WHY CHRIS EVANS???This Cast Captain america Sux!!! he is Jhonny Blaze from “fantastic 4”

    The best Captain America= Lance Armstrong /David Beckham/ Channing Tatum /Josh Holloway / Matthew McConaughey/ Matt Damon / Leonardo Di Caprio / Ryan Phillippe etc. etc. …

    Damn You Stan Lee !!!

  3. SO EXCITED – We actually got up off the sofa (for a couple of seconds..) Wheedon is the Uber-nerd so should stick to the flavour of the comics – Little-nerd swam in the outflow from a nuclear power station during the summer and is now hoping to develop superpowers, so don’t bodge the movie or he’ll come and kick your butts!
