Well, the long wait is nearly over as tonight at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, the red carpet will be rolled out for director Joss Whedon and his cast — Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), Stellan Skarsgård (Erik Selvig) and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) — for the glitzy premiere of “The Avengers.” And not long after, critics will be getting their taste of the picture as well.
Until then, fans will have to wait, but Marvel continues to (partially) sate that anticipation with more piecemeal clips, the latest unspooling at MTV. We’ve already seen a portion of this in the trailers/TV spots for the film, but here we see Loki and Tony Stark trading quips as they run down what each are bringing to the table in their upcoming battle.
Anyway, it’s another brief look at what will be the most superhero-filled movie of the summer, at least in quantity. “The Avengers” opens May 4th.
