Avengers Assemble?!

Yes folks it looks like this summers films Iron Man (May 2) and The Incredible Hulk (June 13) are going to be launching points for a full fledged Avengers movie. Rumor has it that Samuel L Jackson will be popping up in both films as Col. Nick Fury. As well as Robert Downey Jr showing up in The Incredible Hulk as Tony Stark.

Iron Man director Jon Favreau has already expressed interest in helming the project if Marvel can stick with Downey and “Hulk” star Ed Norton and other actors who have already assumed marquee roles.

In addition to Iron Man and the Hulk, the studio may also seek to include actors and characters from their proposed “Thor” and “Ant-Man” features. The latter being penned by Edgar Wright. (Shaun of the Dead). Zak Penn (“X2”) was tapped to pen an “Avengers” screenplay before the writer’s strike in November.

As a fanboy – I am UBER excited about this film. With Justice League seemingly scrapped until a revisit in the summer all I can say is…..
