Who would have thought that what some critics called the “most unlikely movie event of the summer” would become one of the biggest movie events in history? The blockbuster hit “The Avengers” left previous box office sales records in the dust when it was released on May 4th of this year raking in about 200 million and packing theaters to the brim with excited fans.
The film will go down in history as another success story written and directed by “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” writer Joss Wheden and features some of Marvel Comics greatest legends.
In the movie, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) teams up with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evens), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) “to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand!”
The result is one auctioned packed thrill ride that most movie goers just couldn’t be happier with. The only downside is that the movie makes it pretty tough to choose just who your favorite character is! This comic con season, thousands of cosplayers will undoubtedly be struggling with the question, “just which Avengers character should I choose?”
