Fans of the Marvel comic series can hardly wait until May 4 the premier of The Avengers. While the movie has not yet premiered, here are some comments from early screeners:
“The All-Star Game of modern superhero extravaganzas, ‘The Avengers’ is humongous,” wrote THR critic Todd McCarthy, before adding that film is the one Marvel devotees “have been waiting for.”
In a tweet, film editor Peter Sciretta tweeted, “The Avengers is pretty epic. There is probably more action in this film’s climax than all the other Marvel movies combined!”
The movie features a superhero supergroup that consists of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Together, the Avengers must team up to stop the villainous Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor’s ne’er-do-well brother.
