Another superhero flick is on the making. The Marvel Studios Overview Presentation has recently hired Zak Penn to pen the script for "The Avengers", a live-action feature of the superhero team originally created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Dick Ayers as an answer to DC Comics' Justice League of America.
While cast and plot line have not yet been confirmed, the project will surely exhibit the great power of the heroes as they battle against evil. Marvel itself has described The Avengers to be "Earth's mightiest heroes, formed to fight the foes no single hero could withstand" also "the most prestigious and powerful super-hero team in the world."
As for Penn, the man previously has carried out screenwriting job for another Marvel's superhero feature of "X-Men: The Last Stand." His other writing works include "Inspector Gadget", "Behind Enemy Lines", and "Elektra."
