I went to see “The Avengers” a couple of weeks ago and it’s all about the spectacle and the action. It’s awesome especially when you watch it in the cinema in 3D. But the characters are the ones that make the movie, because we all know them and it’s so cool that they team up. So here they are.
Played by: Robert Downey Jr.
Tony Stark is a self-described genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist with a mechanical suit of armor of his own invention. Because of the good sense of humor you forgive him for his arrogance.
Played by: Chris Evans
Steve is a World War II veteran who now has to survive in the present day. He got his strength through a physical experiment, but he already had the brain and heart of a true soldier. Steve is selfless, pretty quiet and doesn’t want to be in the spotlight. Maybe that’s why he and Tony don’t really get along.
Played by: Mark Ruffalo
Bruce is a genius scientist who, because of exposure to gamma radiation, transforms into a monster when enraged or excited. He’s struggling with two sides of himself and everything he does in his life is filtered through issues of control.
Played by: Chris Hemsworth
Thor is the God of thunder. He constantly has to battle his brother Loki, who chose the darker side. Thor is very strong, calm and the only one who can handle the hammer.
Played by: Scarlett Johansson
Natasha is a highly trained spy who works for S.H.I.E.L.D. She has no special powers, but Natasha is a very skilled fighter and she’s clever. She has a long history with Clint Barton, but no one knows exactly what their connection is.
Played by: Jeremy Renner
Like Natasha, Clint is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. He is a master archer, but bit of an outcast with the other members of The Avengers. The only connection he has is with Natasha.
Played by: Tom Hiddleston
Loki is Thor’s adopted brother and nemesis. The reason he came to earth was to rule it and all of mankind. Loki has a big army.
Played by: Samuel L. Jackson
Nick is the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the coordinator of The Avengers Initiative. In order to get to all the heroes for the initiative, he’s not completely honest to them. He isn’t a bad guy though, you just don’t want to cross him.
