We first saw Johansson’s Black Widow back in Iron Man 2, and the things we’ve seen of her from her return in The Avengers all look awesome.
Whedon is directing from his own script, and we can of course look forward to seeing many other familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Black Widow, including Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr., with Paul Bettany returning as JARVIS), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, taking over from Edward Norton), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
The Avengers will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D in the UK on 26th April (under the title ‘Avengers Assemble’), and will then head across the Atlantic for a US debut on 4th May. Everything we’ve seen so far – all of which you can catch up on here – has been epic, and there’s every reason to expect the full feature will be nothing short of immense. Here’s a taster of Black Widow to whet your appetites.
