I guess many would agree when I say the main highlight of the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con is the cast announcement for Marvel‘s highly-anticipated Avengers movie.
Fanboys and fangirls all over the world delighted when Nick Fury himself (that’s Samuel L. Jackson, in case you were just born yesterday) introduced the team and was accompanied by Robert Downey Jr a little later.
Man! Robert IS definitely Tony Stark. He doesn’t need to act at all to make you think that. Its always been a challenge for me to separate the actor and the character really. They’re just too much alike, if you know what I mean! Haha!
Anyway, this marks the first time the Avengers cast had their photo taken. Now lets all dream and look forward to the day when we finally see them wear their costumes together.
Robert Downey Jr is Tony Stark/ Iron Man, Clark Gregg is SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson, Scarlett Johansson is Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth is Thor, Chris Evans is Steve Rogers/Captain America, Sam Jackson is Nick Fury, Jeremy Renner is Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo is Bruce Banner/Hulk and Joss Whedon, the Avengers director.
