Avengers Movie In 2012

The first Avengers comic book was published in 1963. The team of superheroes, originally created using preexisting Marvel characters, variously created by writer-editor Stan Lee, artist and co-plotter Jack Kirby and others, has since thrived, creating its own universe.

Following the success of the Iron Man movie of the Incredible Hulk Marvel has confirmed its intent to produce a feature film based on the Avengers. The movie is slated for a release in Summer 2012.

The Director and the cast have not been unveiled yet. But we may fairly bet that three actors seen in previous superhero movies will reprise their roles, namely:
- Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man,
- Edward Norton as the Hulk,
- and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Scriptwriter Zak Penn is in charge of the screenplay. It is likely that this Avengers movie will actually be based on the Ultimate Avengers series in which a black Nick Fury (in fact specifically tailored after actor Samuel L. Jackson with his permission from the start!) shapes the team to protect America against superhuman threats.

The coming years will be marvelous! With Iron Man 2 in 2010, and Thor and Captain America in 2011. They will be great movies but will also pave the way for the historical blockbuster the Avengers is going to be!

Avengers Assemble!
