Countdown to “The Avengers” (May 4th)
April 19, 2012
Marvel Studios has been building up to The Avengers film for five years. Summer of 2008 introduced us to Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, followed by Iron Man 2 in 2010, and finally Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011. Each film has built upon the other, introducing SHIELD, Nick Fury, and building up to a confrontation so big that all the big heroes will be called into the spotlight. Never before have so many famous actors, directors, distributors, etc. collaborated under one roof in order to put on something this big. Robert Downey Jr. said it well: “this is the most ambitious movie ever made.”
As we countdown to May 4th, we’ll be posting reviews coinciding with the buildup to The Avengers film. If you haven’t gotten the chance to see one of them, we highly recommend you do! – Enjoy!
