We don’t normally update on the weekends, which is kind of a shame because some kick ass news came out of Comic Con. Namely the first assembly of THE AVENGERS.
The whole crew was brought together at Marvel’s Avengers panel over the weekend, including recently announced new Hulk Mark Ruffalo and a shockingly ripped Chris Evans who’s been on set for about 3 days filming CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. The bigger surprises were that Joss Whedon officially confirmed he was directing the film, and HURT LOCKER star Jeremy Renner was confirmed to be playing Clint Barton/Hawkeye (who will presumably be more in line with his Ultimate counter part, if I had to guess).
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER and THOR hit theaters next year, with THE AVENGERS slated for a 2012 release.
Oh right, there was one other thing worth mentioning that’s going to be showing up soon in Marvel pictures…
