By the time the credits roll at the end of Iron Man 3, the fate of Tony Stark is somewhat uncertain, and it’s no coincidence that the film marked the last of Robert Downey Jr.’s contractually obligated appearances as Iron Man. There has been speculation that he would not be returning for future films, and that the role of Tony…

While Tom Hiddleston’s role as Loki has certainly been one of the most memorable things to come out of the Marvel cinematic universe, there’s a good chance that his days may be numbered, at least where the sequel to The Avengers is concerned. We already know that Hiddleston will reprise his role for upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World, but…

The title pretty much tells you exactly what to expect in this first clip from Marvel’s The Avengers, as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) proves that you don’t need superpowers to be a member of the team.
