Marvel's The Avengers Show Floor - Comic-Con 2012

Posted by Grey Saturday, July 23, 2011

With the San Diego Comic-Con now in full spin, check out what Marvel has in store for their ultimate fanfest superhero epic film, The Avengers.

To quote the former six-time world champion (despite what he wanted you to believe) and current color commentator at WWE's SmackDown, Booker T, "this is what I am talking about!"

If you think that's a god-awful quote, wait till you witnessed the Book Man's incessant rantings at Friday Night SmackDown.

Back to the topic, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been an ongoing topic here at The Daily Zombies, and we all know where the ambitious project is ultimately heading to. Yes, The Avengers movie directed by Joss Whedon, with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, and Samuel L. Jackson returning as their respective roles in their former films.

While The Avengers did not get to have a showing at this year's Comic-Con like last year's big moment where all the cinematic Avengers assembled at Hall H, an entire section of the Comic-Con show floor was dedicated to the Joss Whedon film with a mock-up set of the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier bridge set.

Meanwhile, fans get a preview of Captain America's new costume from the film (which will be a modernized depart from the Captain America: The First Avenger film).

Much like last year's Comic-Con, we are expecting more surprises from Marvel.

On other developments, Marvel has released an official synopsis as well as two new posters depicting the concept art of both Captain America and Iron Man, arguably the heart and soul of the superteam, as well as Hawkeye and Black Widow.

Here's the official synopsis:

Robert Downey, Jr. (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2″) returns as the iconic Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) as Thor, Chris Evans (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Captain America, Jeremy Renner (“Thor,” “The Hurt Locker”) as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo (“The Kids Are Alright”) as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson (“Iron Man 2″) as Black Widow, Clark Gregg (“Iron Man,” “Thor”) as Agent Phil Coulson, and Samuel L. Jackson (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2″) as Nick Fury. Set for release in the US on May 4, 2012, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the first feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009.

Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the super hero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster.

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Marvel’s The Avengers” brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. The star studded cast of super heroes will be joined by Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother) as Agent Maria Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as Tom Hiddleston (“Wallander”) and Stellan Skarsgård (“Angels & Demons,” “Mamma Mia!”) who will both reprise their respective roles as Loki and Professor Erik Selvig from the upcoming Marvel Studios’ feature “Thor.”

Earlier, a teaser poster of the film was also unveiled by Marvel.

While the poster consisting of an exposition of the Avengers logo is nothing to get excited, here's a good start to what Marvel has in store for the event.

The Avengers is currently scheduled to be released on May 4th, 2012, in 3D.
