“The Avengers” premiered in Los Angeles last night in an event that cast member Jeremy Renner called the Oscars of the comic world.
There certainly has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Joss Whedon-directed superhero film since its Comic-Con panel was held way back in July 2010. Happily, the first reactions to “The Avengers” have been extremely positive, as Slash Film detailed in this report. Josh Dickey of Variety, for example, tweeted, “It’s the bomb. I could not possibly say enough.”
Unsurprisingly, the film is on track to make more than $100 million during its opening weekend May 4, according to Deadline.
The huge amount of buzz can partially be credited to the film’s beautiful, talented cast. Gaze upon their faces and read some of their quotes from the red carpet below.
