Looks like those lucky enough to attend this year's San Diego Comic Con may be in for a bit of a treat. Despite reports that Marvel won't be holding a panel presence this time around in Hall H, it appears that the cast of The Avengers are still coming and going to make their presence felt at SDCC 2011!
Via a post at Screen Rant and word from First Showing, someone from Disney has "spilled the beans" that the stars of the film adaptation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes will indeed be at the con, returning for the second year in a row after last year's geektastic "Avengers Assemble!" moment where the stars and crew walked together on stage for the first time! Even though Marvel Studios won't be holding a huge panel like they did for their movies for the past few years, there may be some things rumored to appear that fans who are attending the SDCC may want to check out, which includes signing up as a S.H.I.E.L.D member for a viral marketing campaign; Checking out set pieces from The Avengers film, which includes a recreation of the Helicarrier bridge, and bearing witness to a screening of "Captain America: The First Avenger" on the show floor... With a rumored teaser trailer of The Avengers attached to it! For more info and details, visit the source posts at Screen Rant and First Showing!
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth, will show in theaters on May 4, 2012!
