Comic Con: Complete Cast Of Joss Whedon's The Avengers Revealed image
Big news was just delivered over at the Marvel Comic-Con panel. Everyone can breathe a massive sign of relief because we don’t have weeks of casting speculation to endure; the entire cast of The Avengers has been revealed. Here’s the official roster:
  • Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
  • Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark
  • Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson
  • Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
  • Chris Hemsworth as Thor
  • Chris Evans as Captain America
  • Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
  • Mark Ruffalo as Incredible Hulk

And here they are, assembled together for the first time on the Hall H stage at the San Diego Comic Con:

(L-R) Robert Downey Jr., Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Director Joss Whedon, Producer and Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige from the motion picture “MARVEL STUDIOS’ THE AVENGERS” in which Earth’s Mightiest Heroes including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Agent Coulson assemble together on screen for the first time.

I can’t tell if I’m just psyched about the cast or the fact that all of this information was delivered in one clean shot. Nope, it’s the thought of all of these colossal superhero forces uniting in one film. Samuel L. Jackson says it best in a voice over in the film’s teaser trailer that premiered during the panel, "And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born.”

Of course we could be getting ahead of ourselves, but it sounds like The Avengers could change the superhero genre as we know it. Yes, there’s the possibility that a cast packed with such huge stars portraying such powerful roles in a single film could feel a little cluttered, but I’d like to think Joss Whedon knows what he’s doing. He’s certainly been eager to talk to anyone and everyone about the project while at SDCC and just seems thrilled to death about it. Well, with a cast like that, who wouldn’t be?
