When a madman uses advanced technology to do some serious property damage (Iron Man
& Iron Man 2), you can count on Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) to scrap the tech. When a military experiment designed to catch a monster becomes a monster itself (The Incredible Hulk), leave it to the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to smash it. When mythological gods raise hell on Earth (Thor), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will bring the thunder. And, when a Nazi needs a good ol' fashioned sock on the jaw (First Avenger: Captain America), count on Captain America (Chris Evans) to get the job done. But, when the threat is too great for any one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the call goes out, "Avengers Assemble!"
Marvel's super-team movie is already a hit overseas, but American audiences still have an agonizing five days to wait before The Avengers opens Stateside.
