Just stumbled upon this article. Honestly, I’m not even certain why they’re making an Avengers film, and at the moment, I’m not looking forward to it. I don’t particularly want to see some cinematic hybrid of the classic Avengers and the Ultimates (I’m assuming the tone here).

Anyway, here are a few notable cast members:

  • Chris Evans as Captain America. Man…I don’t know. Evans won me over early in his career by being a lot of fun to watch in films like Cellular and Fantastic Four, but as Captain America? I don’t know. I just don’t know.
  • Scarlet Johanssen as Black Widow. Reprising her role from Iron Man 2. Fair enough, but I found her to be sort of a weak link in IM2. I’m not a huge fan.
  • Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk? Okay, I guess.
