Marvel’s The Avengers, or simply The Avengers, is a 2012 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.1 It is the sixth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner as the titular Avengers team, alongside Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. Jackson. In the film, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Tony Stark, Captain America, the Hulk, and Thor to form a team that must stop Thor’s brother Loki from subjugating Earth.
The film’s development began when Marvel Studios received a loan from Merrill Lynch in April 2005. After the success of the film Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be released in July 2011. With the signing of Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the original screenplay by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, before moving to Cleveland, Ohio, in August and New York City in September. The film was converted to 3D in post-production.
The Avengers premiered on April 11, 2012, at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre and was released in the United States on May 4, 2012. The film received positive reviews from critics, as well as numerous awards and nominations including Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for achievements in visual effects. It has set or tied numerous box office records, including the biggest opening weekend in the United States and Canada. The Avengers grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide and became the third-highest-grossing film during its theatrical run—as well as the first Marvel production to generate $1 billion in ticket sales and also the highest-grossing film of 2012. A sequel, titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, was released on May 1, 2015, while two additional sequels, Avengers: Infinity War and an untitled one, were released on April 27, 2018, and scheduled for release May 3, 2019, respectively.
We all loved the film so we thought it was proper to show you what the cast really looks like in real life!
The Avengers The Movie.
This movie was done so well that sequels have now started to sprout up. Whether you are a Guardian’s Of The Galaxy fan or an Iron Man fan this movie hits all of the sweet spots and leaves us sitting on the edge of our seats the entire film!
1. Chris Evans and Jenny Slate
Captain America was actually one of the first Marvel movies to be released. Even though diehard fans were not super happy with it the film paved a way for the rest of the Marvel films that we have all come to love today.
The star of Captain America has done quite well for himself since the original movie. We all loved him on stage and now the world is falling in love with him off stage. Overall a stand-up guy with major talent and a symmetrical face.
2. Josh Brolin and Kathryn Boyd
This is the villain of the movie Thanos, who was played by Josh Brolin.
It looks like he has done quite well for himself over the years.
This is him with his special lady:
She’s absolutely stunning, isn’t she?
3. Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Hemsworth plays the demi-God, Thor. He has appeared on quite a few variations of Marvel movies and shows.
Obviously, he found himself a leading lady in real life:
They met and fell in love almost instantly. He was completely enamored with her for good reason!
First of all, Thor seems invincible and yet he was killed during an apocalyptic event in the comic books during Avengers: Disassembled. In this comic book Thor allows himself and his people to die after killing the gods that they called Those Who Sit Above In Shadow. However Thor didn’t actually die he was just in a void of non-existence until his human alter-ego Donald Blake was able to summon him back on earth once again. Another time when he died was in his father’s arms after defeating his uncle who turned into a massive dragon. Again he didn’t stay dead for long but all of his memory was erased and yet he managed to be rescued from limbo and come back to the land of the living.
4. Elizabeth Olsen and Robbie Arnett
She plays as the Scarlett Witch and has since been in a few films since.
Olsen also two twin sisters that we all know as Mark Kate and Ashley from the 80s and 90s.
This is her with her man on a casual walk in the streets:
5. Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter
The star of Sherlock and the actor of the Doctor Strange movie is becoming more known to the world. Benedict Cumberbatch has now become a Hollywood household name.
He is partnered up with the beautiful Sophie Hunter and they seem to be a solid couple.
Here his is with his lady:
They both have the same smile. Or, non smile. Eerie!
6. Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost
Johansson plays the infamous Black Widow and has been seen on a few other Avenger films in the past.
Even though we have seen Scarlett with a few fellas over the years it looks like she found a keeper with her boyfriend Colin.
Here they are looking stunning together:
We love how happy she looks with him.
7. Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey
Iron Man was the very first Marvel film back in 2018 and is still considered one of the best films Marvel ever made. Would you agree?
Although Downy has had a crazy past it looks like life has settled down a bit and he is happy with his new wife Susan!
This is him appreciating the love of his life:
For those of you who are interested in the comic book storyline of this character Tony Stark has not always been morally correct. In a 1995 Avengers The Crossing storyline Tony Stark had been working for Kang the Conqueror the whole time and even began murdering people. They even had to go back in time to enlist the help of a younger version of Tony Stark to help defeat the older version who has gone off the deep end.
I just feel like knowing the characters and their entire background is extremely important especially if you are the moviegoer and want to know more about these characters and where they come from.
8. Dave Bautista and Sarah Jade
Bautista was an addition to the Marvel franchise that surprised everyone. But he has done so well!
The ex-wrestler is a perfect fit for the role. We couldn’t imagine Guardian’s of the Galaxy without him in it.
He’s a powerful man who melts with love for this little lady!
They look remarkable together and very happy as well!
9. Mark Ruffalo and Sunrise Coigney
Who doesn’t love Mark Ruffalo as the mean green guy in The Hulk?
Here he is with his special lady:
Just don’t make him mad. . .
They have a beautiful family together!
The Hulk seems completely indestructible. And yet he has died many many times as well in the comics. There was even one point in which he killed himself when he faced off with his evil version of himself named maestro who broke his neck in their first battle. But he was nursed back to health and therefore made a miraculous recovery.
10. Don Cheadle and Brigid Coulter
He was in the first Marvel film and has since been a huge part of all the Marvel films.

20. Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk
Paltrow plays Iron Man’s assistant and the two kick it off in the new film.

Mackie plays Falcon and is one of the newer additions the Avengers.
27. Chris Pratt and…
Pratt plays Peter Quill In Guardians of the Galaxy and so far has been a huge hit!
He recently broke up with Anna Faris whom he was married to for a long time. Rumors have arisen about him dating other stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Munn.

Not everyone is.
30. Benicio Del Toro and Kimberley Stewart
Even though these two aren’t in an official relationship they do have a daughter together.
With all that is said about this show, we have to wonder why all of it even comes about and why it is already so popular before it even hits the theaters. Well, The Avengers movie got it’s start as a fictional team of superheroes in comic books that were published by Marvel Comics. Those who watch these movies might be insanely interested in these details of the past that all come from the comic books that have been in our lives for decades.
So for those of you who worry about them dying in the movies. Just keep in mind that this is an ongoing storyline and many times these characters are brought back into our lives again.
These books made their mark in the early 60s
Everyone is familiar with Stan Lee because he was the writer/editor of these comics and the artist was Jack Kirby. All of the heroes are represented in this series at one point or another and they consist of Ant-Mn, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and the Wasp.
Each hero went on to appear in many other medias including comic books and animation.
This gave way to whole new group of fans which is the real beauty of The Avengers and that is that they are relevant wherever they turn up because they are the “Earth’s Mightiest Heros” and so no one tires of this!
Everyone wants a hero to look up to!
Honestly, nobody tires of this and so it is something to consider as to why are these kinds of movie so important.
Even Superman has his place in the movies:
This was epic!
However, his first appearance was in this comic from 1938:
But that was a long time ago. . .However, this gives you an idea of the evolution of this character just like the characters in The Avengers movie. Even so we can easily see that we will constantly be looking in the past and comic books and novels in order to fulfill the demand that the public seems to have to regenerate these superheroes in our modern-day world. Without this constant excitement for these characters many of these comic books may have fallen into obscurity. However superheroes obviously have a special place in our hearts because they are able to tackle the world in such ways that they allow the readers and moviegoers to believe in the goodness of mankind. These stories have survived for generations and continue to propel all of us into a world filled with them. So for those of you who have an interest in the past and history of these superheroes it is important to understand where they come from and how they have developed over the years. They have obviously been through Many Adventures and quite honestly these adventures never die. Therefore we are able to relive every moment in every battle in years to come. Especially when it comes to the movies. Obviously we will be seeing them in this form of media for very long time because it ignites all the senses with sound and visuals in ways that have never been done before. But that doesn’t mean that people have not been invested in these characters over the decades.
These actors must feel very privileged to play a part in this movie!
Not only do they get to have a great career but they are sure to make history because anyone who represents a favorite character will be immortalized by fans of all ages and for many generations to come. For that reason it is so important to understand the origin of many of these movies which happen to come from comics.
True fans will never let a superhero down!
For those of us who live in today’s world, movies, television and movies play a big role in how we enjoy these superheroes but we have to wonder if today’s audience is aware of where these ideas come from in the first place. However, most people are aware of the fact that these superheroes originated as comic books (whether or not you’ve ever seen one before). The fact is, lots of these movie ideas are derived from comic books that were a part of most children’s everyday life. They absolutely loved them and they often went to the store just to pick up the latest edition their favorite comic.
Those were really the days in which superheroes were even invented!
For every person there is a favorite character. And many of these characters have been in their lives for as long as they can remember. For those of you who have never read a comic or held a comic book in your hand you are truly missing out on an experience like no other. This is why many people have always been and will continue to be Die Hard fans of many of these superheroes.
However it doesn’t and there. Not all Comics are about superheroes. You will recognize many topics and themes throughout all of the movies and Comics. Also, most of the earlier, blockbuster movies also made it into the comics because ( at the time ) comics were still relevant.
Raiders of the Lost Ark – Marvel Movie Special:
Well, this was a spectacular movie and the comic world was probably wondering why they didn’t think of this first! However, that didn’t stop Marvel from introducing the new comic set that comes from the movies! So, can you see how these things go hand in hand? Also, many of these comics are really collectible and allow you to hold onto something that will be as valuable as the movie will allow it to be!
To a fan, anything goes!
The point is, when it comes to these great successes, then you have to know that it all points to comic books which generated the interest for these characters to exist at all. We only hope that comics continue to be a part of our lives in the same way that they were in the past because it’s a great way to carry around your entertainment without having to access a screen, in some form or another
The fact is that the movies often drive comic book sales up. For movie goers this was a very Epic film! There’s nothing wrong with tackling every media when you have a great story. This would be one of them and another reason for it to be in comic books as well. Also when you become a fan of the movie you tend to buy other things that help remind you of the movie when you can’t be watching it all the time. This is a good reason for the comic book as well. It allows a fan to read through the story and to take the adventures around with them at all times.
Here’s another popular movie that went to comics:
Also, many people are trying to guess which comic will become a movie next so they can get to these comics first! With that said, let’s take a look at some of the comics that either Have Been or Should Be movies:
Spectre: A really incredible comic book character that’s never been turned into a movie:
In this case, the Spectre is one character that is so bad ass that we cannot believe that he hasn’t been turned into a movie by now! He has all of the most amazing powers possible and the whole premise about his beginnings is that he was a man who died and now he is capable of destroying the bad people from beyond in the most horrific ways! He is now a ghost with infinite power. Omnipotent even.
He only comes after bad people!
This is the key characteristic of any superhero and so he is trying to rid our world of this evil.
In this release, he’s after someone who loves money!
To the point of corruption, that is. Now, this is something that many people can get behind in a superhero fashion! Obviously, there’s nothing that we can do about the dollar (the federal reserve) and all of that because it is the driving force of our economy but there are plenty of people in this world who fantasize about not having a money system governing our lives because, deep down, we know that this LOVE of money is the root of all evil (not money, itself).
In fact, money as a medium of exchange is perfectly normal but it has since turned into something in which fixed amounts are constantly being created out of thin air only to be subsequently paid back with interest. With that said, we all know that we’re in perpetual debt because if 100 dollars are created on earth and 125 dollars are needed to pay back the loan (with interest) then it can never be done because the extra 25 dollars needed to pay it back has never been created (unlike the $100 dollars which was created on earth). Therefore, we must compete with others to take their money to pay back the loans. This is actually pretty genius because it creates competition, naturally, when all of our commodities are only provided for only when we pay for it.
We can’t get something for nothing!
That’s just the way that the world works but in this comic, he’s getting rid of the greed surrounding it.
But what do we do without money?
We can easily see why much of our world today is influenced by these old mediums because a lot of great ideas have already taken place during our human existence and yet, there are still so many that have yet to be explored and presented to today’s generation for digestion.
It’s important that we understand where it all comes from!
Like in this comic, it already says the words: The Walking Dead. Now, everyone knows those three words! I mean, this could be where the title of the popular television show came from!
The Walking Dead:
In this example, we can see that even these names and titles can easily be lifted from the past. The name alone has a certain appeal that you just can’t fathom until you recognize it on a world wide level just like this show has become.
There’s one in this comic too:
Literally every cover from the past can offer up some hope for the future.
The Crypt – Keeper
Of course, he was the name of a creepy host of short stories that ended up making it onto the movie and television screens.
Here are some others that are interchangable on the big screen, television and comics:
Godzilla king of monsters
Now we have been watching Godzilla movies for a very long time. Of course many of the comic books have been published in Japan and in the United States as well as the movies themselves. Its first Inception was in 1954 when these comics we’re mostly black and white Publications known as manga. However these Comics were mostly adaptations of the films. Godzilla went on to fight King Kong as well. This just goes to show how movies and Comics practically go hand-in-hand.
Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein was the first time we heard of this monster. However he has gone on to be quite popular in many comic books and movies. The first movies developed in 1910 and it was a brief 16 minutes story on how Frankenstein was chemically created. Several movies followed as have comic books as well. Hardly a decade goes by in which some sort of film. And yet here he is in the comic books as well. There for those who wish to know more about these characters without watching these films can also turn to comic books because it is a popular form of media that many people still appreciate today.
In the comic books many of our superheroes have fought Dracula. This creature has been around since 1897 when he first appeared in Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula. One reason why he still relevant today is that the character exists in the public domain. This means that almost anybody can use him as inspiration to tell stories. That is why he shows up and books films plays TV and Comics. And in the comic book world the Publishers took full advantage of the fact that they were able to use him and ended up having some of our superheroes fight him as well. This includes Deadpool Superman X-Men and several others who have managed to fight Dracula in the comic books.
So bringing the Avengers to the big screen is really no surprise. In it we can see that the adventures will never end. There will possibly be several movies more to come concerning these characters. And those of you who worry about characters dying in the movies need to be consoled by the fact that many super heroes Never Die For Real. In fact they are merely subdued for a short while and their Resurrection will bring on another plot that we can digest in the future.
It is one of those things that keeps us from losing hope
Therefore you can be sure that superheroes will continue to play a giant roll on the big screen for generations to come. There really is no end to the amount of Adventures that they are capable of achieving. That is the key difference between superheroes and human beings. This is one reason why humans are drawn to these characters. They want to fill Invincible themselves. They’re for aligning yourself with a superhero makes us feel good about future possibilities. We are thankful that the movie industry has been able to keep these characters alive in our modern culture for other generations to enjoy. They have been around for a very long time and they show no signs of giving up anytime soon.
So, whenever you feel as if the modern world has let you down, read a comic!
