According to SuperHeroHype, the highly anticipated ‘Avengers’ film will begin shooting next February. The film, from director Joss Whedon, is slated to hit theaters on May 4, 2012.
‘The Avengers‘ will star Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson. Filming is expected to take place in Los Angeles.
Many members of the Avengers have not made it to the big screen so far, but that changes when ‘Thor’ starring Chris Hemsworth and Anthony Hopkins, hits theaters May 20, 2011, and ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ starring Chris Evans, is released Jul. 22, 2011.
