This is the true story of seven superheroes, picked to live in a Helicarrier, to work together and have their actions monitored, to find out what happens when supervillains stop being polite, and heroes start avenging…The Avengers!  If you haven’t heard about this movie by now, there’s not much more we can do for you.  In addition to all of the TV spots, trailers, clips, images, posters and interviews we’ve posted, Marvel has been building to this point since the release of the original Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in 2008.  Since then, agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have also recruited Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to accompany their own Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) against the villainy of Loki (Tom Hiddleston).  This new making-of-The-Avengers featurette will provide a retrospective look at how we got to where we are today.  Also, a new IMAX TV spot does its best to convince you to see the epic assemblage in IMAX 3D.  Hit the jump to check them out.  The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon and also starring Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders and Clark Gregg, debuts May 4th.
