The film's development began when Marvel Studios received a loan from Merrill Lynch in April 2005.
After the success of the film Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be
released in July 2011. With the signing of Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a
2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the original screenplay
by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, before moving

post-production.
The Avengers premiered at Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre on April 11, 2012, and was released in
the United States on May 4, 2012. The film received praise for Whedon's direction and screenplay,
visual effects, action sequences, acting, and musical score, and garnered numerous awards and
nominations including Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for achievements in visual effects. It
set or tied numerous box office records, including the biggest opening weekend in the United States
and Canada. The Avengers grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide and became the third-highest-
grossing film of all time, as well as the highest-grossing film of 2012. It is the first Marvel production
to generate $1 billion in ticket sales. In 2017, it was featured as one of the 100 greatest films of all
time in Empire magazine's poll of The 100 Greatest Movies.
Three sequels, titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, were

The film's development began when Marvel Studios received a loan from Merrill Lynch in April 2005.
After the success of the film Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be
released in July 2011. With the signing of Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a
2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the original screenplay
by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, before moving
to Cleveland, Ohio, in August and New York City in September. The film was converted to 3D in
post-production.
The Avengers premiered at Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre on April 11, 2012, and was released in
the United States on May 4, 2012. The film received praise for Whedon's direction and screenplay,
visual effects, action sequences, acting, and musical score, and garnered numerous awards and
nominations including Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for achievements in visual effects. It
set or tied numerous box office records, including the biggest opening weekend in the United States
and Canada. The Avengers grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide and became the third-highest-
grossing film of all time, as well as the highest-grossing film of 2012. It is the first Marvel production
to generate $1 billion in ticket sales. In 2017, it was featured as one of the 100 greatest films of all
time in Empire magazine's poll of The 100 Greatest Movies.
Three sequels, titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, were
released in May 2015, April 2018, and April 2019, respectively.
