It’s been rumoured for a while, but Marvel finally announced the full official cast and director of “The Avengers”. Obviously we already know Samuel L Jackson is Nick Fury, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Robert Downey Jr is Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Chris Evans as Captain America.

The 2 additions officially announced were Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and Mark Ruffalo whos taking over the role of Bruce Banner. Really it’s one thing to read about it, it’s another to actually see them all on stage together. The one thing that really gave me geeky goosebumps though, was hearing Robert Downey Jr say “…our director, Joss Whedon!”
