The Avengers Video Interview: The Future for Captain America & Slinging Thor’s Hammer

Published 3 years ago by , Updated May 5th, 2012 at 8:34 am,


The countdown to the U.S. release of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers is upon us, and some of our friends abroad have had the opportunity to see the film, which is already breaking box-office records. Avengers of course follows the first rocky assembly of the superhero team that Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury puts together.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) to talk about the creation of the massive (yep) fight sequences with The Hulk, how their characters have evolved and where they see them going from here in their individual storylines.

Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, The Hulk and Thor must make a rough attempt to come together to defeat a fairly psychotic foe (Thor’s brother Loki). The film brings the motley crew of heroes together, but as we know, Marvel already has the continuation of several of the individual character stories in the production pipeline.

Iron Man 3 begins shooting shortly, to be followed by Thor 2 which, theoretically, continues to explore Thor’s push/pull between his duty to Asgard and his affection for Earth and Jane Foster. Captain America 2 will follow Steve Rogers as he continues to find his place in S.H.I.E.L.D while trying to adjust to this time period.

    • The Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division.
      Boom! I didn’t even look that up ;)

      • Lol that went right over your head didn’t it lol. The Avenger look at his question one more time.

        • Hahaha. The writer fixed it by the time The Avenger commented.

          • I feel embarrassed… what did the original comment say? :( ;)

            • He left out the I because original the article had a typo so he was asking what Sheld meant lol

  6. I saw AVENGERS in 3D on 28 April in INDIA and the movie was awesome. MUST WATCH . HULK was great :)

  7. I can’t wait to see Hulk and Thor go at it. I hope Hulk picks up Mjolnir like he did in the Ultimate Avengers animated movie, even though he struggled I bet the look on Thor’s face would be priceless

  8. I’m a soccer/Barcelona fan and just saw the players trooping out of the tunnel for a match with young kids by their side dressed in Avengers costumes. Was a lovely sight to see! Nice promo. I wonder if they’ve seen it in Spain?

  9. Wonder if we’ll see the Falcon in Cap 2. Would love to see Modok and A.I.M. in that one. Modok wanted the cosmic cube also.
