The world is being invaded by aliens.
And of course it isn’t just any part of the world. It’s the United States. Manhattan, to be precise.
Who better to save the world than Captain America and his band of misfit superheros?
Check out the trailer:
It’s going to be tough for Spider-Man and Batman to beat the Avengers. By Sunday, the movie will have made an estimated $457.1 million domestically, according CNN Entertainment. It was three weeks at No. 1 in both the United States and Canada, until this past weekend when it got knocked off by Men In Black III.
The Avengers is really everything we need in a summer blockbuster … sexy superheroes, America under attack by aliens and big explosions. This movie is sure to provide great costume inspiration for Canadians this Halloween … or how about a summer superhero party?
Loki (Tom Hiddleston) visits us from another dimension (you just know they’re out there) and is hellbent on taking over the world. He’s backed by a really ugly army of mechancial looking aliens but nobody messes with Shaft … I mean, Nick Fury … because, you know, Samuel L. Jackson just seems to play the same brooding, pissed-off guy no matter what he does.
Fury assembles his team of superheroes Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (the adorable Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (the sultry Scarlett Johansson). And Thor (Chris Hemsworth) drops in to bring Loki back to Asgard.
You don’t want to miss the exciting, bigger than life action of the Avengers.
Nor do you want to miss the chance to dress up like one of them. CostumeChik has a collection of Iron Man, Captain America and Incredible Hulk costumes, ready to wear. The rest of the characters will arrive over the next couple of months with plenty of time to spare for Halloween.
Our high-end Iron Man costume will get you looking just like the alter ego of billionaire playboy Tony Stark. It’s a one-piece red jumpsuit with a chest padded to look like muscle armour. A two-piece plastic helmet is the right finishing touch.
And don’t worry, you won’t have to spend hours in the gym to try to look like Captain America. Our full bodysuit has you covered. Or, if you want to go au naturel with your own goods, pick up the T-shirt pack that comes with a mask and gloves.
If you want to go green and unleash your inner fury like Dr. Bruce Banner does, don our Incredible Hulk deluxe costume. It’s a full-length green polyester bodysuit with muscles built-in. Your purple pants are all shredded and you get a vinyl mask with black hair (complete with angry eyebrows!).
Stay tuned to this space. We’ll be highlighting ways to dress up as Black Widow, Thor, Loki and more.
