While the other day brought the official confirmation that Joss Whedon would be directing the feature, yesterday’s panel was a chance for Marvel to introduce the full cast to die-hard comic-book fans, in the hope of winning over their support.
Confirmed to appear in the film are: Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L Jackon as Nick Fury, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson.
Following the presentation, Joss Whedon addressed the audience by saying, “”I have had a dream all my life and it was not this good.” …”This is The Avengers; a team is more than the sum of its parts — this cast is more than I could have ever hoped for … and I am going to blow it. I need your love; I need your support.”
