Director: Joss Whedon
Release date: 4 May, 2012
Whats the Buzz? : Okay now this is the perfect summer film! We know this movie is not gonna win any awards, but when you have Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America all in one action-fun film, you will just not get the tickets for the movie in first week.
