"The Avengers" cast members Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk) will join forces on stage at the Oscars on Sunday, February 24th, according to Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
Missing from the Oscars lineup are Avengers Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor, no codename needed).
"The Avengers" was the biggest film of 2012, breaking box office records and leading almost immediately to both a sequel and a primetime television show in "S.H.I.E.L.D." Director and writer Joss Whedon is being credited with much of the success of the little superhero action adventure, and Whedon will go on to write and direct the sequel.
Tune in to the Oscars on Sunday, February 24th to watch the Avengers assemble to deliver some justice in the form of Hollywood's most prestigious awards.
Can’t stop the signal: Marvel's "The Avengers"––directed by Joss Whedon and starring everyone––was released in the U.S. on May 4, 2012. It broke box office records left and right and launched Whedon from Geek God cult icon to veritable Hollywood phenomenon.
