SuperheroHype has an announcement that should thrill Marvel fans worldwide! The upcoming Avengers film, featuring a cavalcade of stars as some of Marvel’s biggest name, has officially been given a start date for filming. Here’s the story:

SuperHeroHype has learned that Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios are planning to start shooting The Avengers in February, 2011 for a May 4, 2012 release.

Directed by Joss Whedon, the anticipated film stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.

The February start is just a few months after Sony’s untitled Spider-Man reboot gets underway this December. Both films are expected to shoot in Los Angeles.
