Have you seen Marvel’s The Avengers yet? What was your favorite scene from the film? I love the moment when Captain America tells Bruce Banner, “Doc… I think now is the perfect time for you to get angry.” To which Bruce replies, “That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always angry.”

Good luck!


Mini Avengers Invasion at Disney Store Headquarters

Marvel's The Avengers has made quite a smash at box offices, surpassing all records to become the #1 opening weekend of all time and one of the biggest movies of the year. A feat fit for the finest collection of super heros! 

The Avengers have not only appeared in theaters worldwide, but in Disney Stores across the nation as well with awesome and super cool products, like the Hulk Smash Fists and Action Figure.

We have noticed some small-scale super hero activity right here at Disney Store Headquarters, too. From tiny bolts of lightning to slight rumblings in the building, it looks like the Avengers have taken on miniture forms to fight crime for our Cast Members!

I snapped these photos of our super hero stage sets featuring Avengers product, and I think some of the mini Avengers are hiding out among the costumes and accessories. Can you spot them?

Superheroes, assemble!

Yesterday, Disney was thrilled to launch the newest trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers, releasing in theaters on May 4th of this year! The date could not have been more fitting, as today we celebrate the original comic book debuts of both Captain America (1941) and Iron Man (1963).

Marvel's The Avengers
Captain America, considered to be the first of the Avengers, was created by artists Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Wearing his signature American flag-inspired costume, Captain America uses his indestructible shield to protect the world against the evil plotting of his enemies. Check out Disney Store’s awesome costume rendition of Steve Rogers’ superhero alter ego! It comes complete with a glow-in-the-dark star and includes Captain America’s famous mask.

Iron Man, created by writer-editor Stan Lee and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby, gains his superhero status after creating a powered suit of armor to save his life and later to protect the world. With his signature brilliant red suit and mask, he is quite the hero to behold! Take a look at this vintage comic book cover from when Iron Man was first introduced as a superhero!
