The Avengers (2012)
Since 2008 Marvel Studios has been steadily releasing films to build towards 2012's The Avengers . Starting with Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk, most recently fans saw Thor and Captain America on the silver screen. Now, the Avengers team can be assembled!
Built upon the stories of Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011); The Avengers will find Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D pulling these super personalities together to form a team that can stop Loki, half brother of Thor, from opening a portal to allow the space alien race of the Chitauri take over the world. The only problem? Can these "superheroes" work together or will they fight each other and allow the world to fall apart?
A sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, will be released in 2015.

After having awakened from a nearly 70-year coma and finding himself in the 21st century, Steve Rodgers finds himself contacted by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury about an important mission.
Clearly, the super-soldier serum has made cellular aging nearly stop in Rodgers' body, as he is as young as he was when he crashed the Red Skull's jet in the Arctic. It is left to be seen whether Rodgers accepts Fury's offer or not. His current whereabouts seem to be New York City.

Upon his return to Asgard to stop his half-brother Loki, Thor destroyed the Bifrost to save Jotunheim from destruction. Now trapped in Asgard and unable to return to Earth (and Jane Foster), Thor has mended his relationship with his father, Odin, and decided not to become king.
Before his apparent death, Loki revealed that there are other ways in and out of Asgard. One of these might be used by Thor to return to Earth, if the path is discovered. Until then, Thor remains in Asgard.
