“The Avengers” stars will assemble on the red carpet Wednesday night for the film’s Hollywood premiere. Didn’t get the call from Nick Fury? You can watch the event live right here.
Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston and director Joss Whedon are scheduled to appear.
“The Avengers,” which hits theaters May 4, unites Marvel’s disparate superheroes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury against “Thor” villain Loki and what appears from the teaser trailer to be an army of airborne alien invaders. Will the alpha-male (and -female) heroes of S.H.I.E.L.D. be able pull together, fend off their attackers and save the planet?
“What I find is that these characters mesh through these differences really well,” Whedon said last July. “And what I also find is these actors have a great time playing against each other, and they are, as a troupe, actually a much better team than the Avengers are.”
Hero Complex already gave readers a glimpse of the trailer, as well as a clip from the film, featuring a Buffy-esque fight scene between Black Widow (Johansson) and some goons. Now, tune in to the video above for the live premiere.
