The Avengers 3D


Every comic book fan’s nerdiest dreams come true when writer/director Joss Whedon (Serenity) assembles the superhero line-up of a lifetime and unleashes the souped-up, action-packed, world-saving, mega-blockbuster movie goods in The Avengers … and it’s all happening in eye-popping 3D! An all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston bring everyone’s favorite super-powered do-gooders (and a nefarious villain, naturally) to glorious life in this grandly entertaining thrill-ride, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy (that would be the temperamental Loki, disgraced bad guy and estranged brother of Thor) emerges from outer space to threaten global safety and security, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of certain disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins, and the stage is set for a blazing final confrontation on the streets of New York City, a blistering battle royale that may just bake the Big Apple once and for all! (Dir. by Joss Whedon, 2012, USA, 143 mins., Rated PG-13) Digital
