When Earth is threatened by evil demigod Loki and an army of aliens in search of the Cosmic Cube, Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.

I saw the movie The Avengers on Friday May 04, 2012, it is simply awesome movie defiantly one of the best movies I saw this year. This movie is packed with superstars and the animation is superbly done. I am a huge science fiction buff so it was a thrill to see all the high quality animation. Should you see it? Absolutely but, if you are not in to science fiction and star wars you may not appreciate this move.

In September 2006 Marvel confirmed their crossover plans in a brief presentation to Wall Street analysts. The studio's plan was to release individual films for the main characters, to establish their identities and familiarize audiences with them, before merging the characters together in an Avengers movie. Marvel Studios announced in July 2007 that screen writer Zak Penn, who wrote The Incredible Hulk, had been hired to write the film and will be titled, The Avengers. Penn confirmed his involvement but said he did not believe work would begin soon.
