Collection of six action adventure superhero films based on the Marvel Comics characters. In 'Iron Man' (2008) Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) is the billionaire owner of Stark Industries, a corporation that specialises in weapons development. When Tony is kidnapped by terrorists in Afghanistan, he is made to construct a devastating weapon. Instead, however, he builds a high-tech suit of armour and uses it to escape from captivity... In 'The Incredible Hulk' (2008) scientist Dr Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) searches for the cure to his life-transforming alter-ego. Scouring the globe for the antidote that will prevent him from changing into The Hulk, Banner is forced to keep a low profile, lest the military authorities that seek to exploit his powers finally catch up with him... In 'Iron Man 2' (2010) the world is now aware of Tony Stark's dual identity and he faces pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military. With Pepper Potts and James 'Rhodey' Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony fights to protect his suit by forging new alliances - and confronting powerful new enemies. 'Thor' (2011), which moves between present-day Earth and the fantastic realm of Asgard, tells the story of the Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior god whose reckless actions rekindle an ancient feud among the deities. As a punishment, Thor is cast out of Asgard and forced to live on Earth among humankind... In 'Captain America - The First Avenger' (2011) Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers, who volunteers for a top secret military research project after being deemed physically unfit to enlist in the U.S. Army during the Second World War. The experiment transforms him into super-soldier Captain America, who - along with sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) - takes on the mighty power of Hitler's henchman Red Skull (Hugo Weaving). In 'Marvel Avengers Assemble' (2012) Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and the international S.H.I.E.L.D. agency must act swiftly to form The Avengers, a team of ultimate superhero defenders, when Earth comes under attack from Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his multi-faceted army: Iron Man (Downey Jr.), Thor (Hemsworth), Captain America (Evans), The Black Widow (Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)...
