With such a great cast, a lot of people are expecting this movie to be big hit. Maybe better than the Dark Knight Rises? Who knows since both will be out in the same year.

Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based upon the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name.
