Avengers Assembled! ... At San Digeo Comic-Con

Posted by Grey Monday, July 26, 2010

And yes, that's the official logo of the upcoming superhero epic film, Avengers. Yeah, epic, I called it.

With the conclusion of the four-day San Diego Comic-Con, you have to ask the question: Who have won the event over? None other than Marvel.

On the final day of the event, Marvel held panels for both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor at Hall H and closed the show with a blast by assembling the entire team of Avengers not without dropping some major announcement!

While the panels for both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor are respectively awesome (and totally outdone DC's very own Green Lantern) and will be covered later right for their collective coolness, I'm afraid nothing can stand in the way of the assembled awesomeness of the mighty Avengers.

Kevin Feige, President of Production of Marvel, and the head honcho behind the recent Marvel Cinematic Universe, sneakingly stayed behind on stage right after the Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor's respective panel. The lights went out, and a video that gradually displayed the "A" logo of the Avengers with voice-overs from Nick Fury (as portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson), reading a passage familiar for all Marvel Zombies, "And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's Mightiest Heroes found themselves united against a common threat. On that day...the Avengers were born." Jackson himself then came out to wild ovation, and went on to introduce his right-hand man, Agent Phil Coulson (as portrayed by Clark Gregg), and more importantly, his right-hand woman, Black Widow ((as portrayed by Scarlett Johansson). The crowd of course went wilder, but a little milder as Jackson introduced the God of Thunder, Thor (as portrayed by Chris Hemsworth) and the First Avenger (an absolutely annoyingly arguable namesake that should be dropped), Captain America, (as portrayed by Chris Evans). And as if the crowd can't get any wilder, Tony Stark himself, AKA Iron Man (as portrayed by the incomparable Robert Downey Jr.) was finally introduced on the stage. And just when you begin to think that that is the Avengers assembled on stage, Downey Jr. make it a point that you should think twice.

Working the crowd with his charismatic rhetorics as usual once he taken the mike from Jackson, Downey asked if everyone had seen Inception, which gathered will applause from the crowd. Stating that the Christopher Nolan's thriller was one of the most ambitious film he has seen in quite some time, he then paused and remarked that Marvel assembling all the Avengers in one single film is the most ambitious film ever. "And if we're gonna make a movie this ambitious, the most important thing is to get the guy to helm it to meet approval".And with that, Downey Jr. introduced the recently confirmed director of the film, Joss Whedon. The crowd went wild again when Downey Jr. mentioned "Clint Barton" in his next introduction, and brought Jeremy Renner (of The Hurt Locker fame) who will be playing the role of the Avenging Archer, Hawkeye, and last but certainly not the least, the official confirmation of Mark Ruffalo, as Bruce Banner, AKA the Incredible Hulk.


Interestingly, director Joss Whedon said, "I had a dream all my life and it was not this good." Let's just hope that he won't blew this one up when Avengers hits theaters on May 4th, 2012.

And that is how Marvel conquered the San Diego Comic-Con.

And for those interesting the closest thing to a video of the event, here goes, thanks to YouTube.
