Most comic book fans would probably know that in general "The Avengers" is a team consisting of several superheroes from Marvel's comic books. But, with a lot of heroic characters in the Marvel Comics universe and the growing number of superheroes joining the team, many have questioned which superheroes will be teamed up for the film version of the comic book series. Giving a little bit of light to the question, "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau has unveiled Marvel's picks for the line-up.
In an interview with USA Today, the filmmaker that is on the run for the director's seat of "Avengers" revealed that Marvel Entertainment already have the intention "to team up the heroes for The Avengers, which is made up of all of the Marvel heroes they have the rights to" making the team's lineup to have changed over and over again. However, he further added that the production company are more inclined to form the "Avengers" team by teaming up Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Iron Man together stating, "but the ones Marvel is talking about now are Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Iron Man. I would love to see that."
"Avengers" has been set to be distributed in theaters across the country by Paramount Pictures on July 1, 2011. The script of the film about a superheroes team that has been described to be the most prestigious and powerful super-hero team in the world will be written by "X-Men: The Last Stand" co-scribbler Zak Penn.
