Avengers Assemble

Since Avengers Assemble is released in cinemas across the UK today, we thought we’d put together a little section containing all sorts of Marvel related content in celebration.

After all, it’s not every day that a film is released that features Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Nick Fury, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye is it.

Ever since Samuel L Jackson first made his cameo appearance in the post credit scene at the end of the first Iron Man film, a cinematic outing of the Avengers has been building up to this moment and under the direction of Joss Whedon, that day has finally arrived.

Featured in this section is our review by Simon Fitzjohn, various videos and profiles on several of the major characters in the movie.
