Johannesburg commuters are currently experiencing a unique sight as they take their daily routes to the city and back. On Wednesday 18 April, the Marvel Comics superhero Thor appeared on the corner of Jan Smuts and William Nicol, outside the Hyde Park Shopping Centre. On Thursday 19 April, he was joined by none other than Captain America and on the morning of the 20th the pair became a trio as the red and gold armoured suit representing Iron Man appeared!
The three comic icons form part of The Avengers, the superhero team-up of a lifetime that also features Marvel Superheroes The Incredible Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow. The group are the stars of the hotly anticipated Marvel Studios film of the same name, hitting cinemas on Thursday, 26 April 2012.
Fans are invited to join in the excitement of having the superheroes in the country on Twitter @AvengersSA (and the hashtag #AvengersSA) as they count down the days to when The Avengers assemble on cinema screens across the country.
