The Avengers

‘The Avengers’ is the final film in Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Tom Hiddleston’s Loki steals an object of immense power, super-spy Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) unites the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to defend the planet from an alien invasion. The movie features the stars of every previous Marvel Studios production, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth as Thor (with Mark Ruffalo replacing Edward Norton as the Hulk). Thanks to a terrific cast, clever writing and crisp direction from Joss Whedon, and an infectious sense of fun, ‘The Avengers’ became a massive worldwide success, grossing more than $1.5 billion worldwide. A sequel, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ opens next summer, with at least two more sequels to follow after that.
