"Marvel's The Avengers" assembles the superhero team of a lifetime and is the most highly anticipated movie event of the year, continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow answer the call to action when Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., initiates a daring, globe-spanning recruitment effort to assemble The Avengers team to defeat an unexpected enemy threatening global safety and security. Despite pulling together the ultimate dream team, Nick Fury and longtime confidant Agent Coulson must find a way to convince the Super Heroes to work with, not against each other, when the powerful and dangerous Loki gains access to the Cosmic Cube and its unlimited power.

The cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston, with Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Directed by Joss Whedon, the movie is based on the ever-­popular Marvel comic book series "The Avengers," first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders also join the talented cast in bringing the world's mightiest Super Heroes together on screen for the first time.

Director Joss Whedon's creative production team includes Oscar-­nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey ("Atonement"), production designer James Chinlund ("25th Hour"), Oscar-­winning costume designer Alexandra Byrne ("Elizabeth: The Golden Age"), Oscar-­winning visual effects supervisor Janek Sirrs ("Iron Man 2," "The Matrix"), four-­time Oscar-­nominated special effects supervisor Dan Sudick ("Iron Man," "War of the Worlds") and editors Jeffrey Ford ("Crazy Heart") and Lisa Lassek ("The Cabin in the Woods") .

"Marvel's The Avengers" is produced by Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige and executive produced by Alan Fine, Jon Favreau, Stan Lee, Louis D'Esposito, Patricia Whitcher, Victoria Alonso and Jeremy Latcham.

The story is by Zak Penn and Joss Whedon, and the screenplay is by Joss Whedon.
