This past friday, Marvel Studios announced that they will be sponsoring a Global Twitter Chat on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 11 a.m. (PST) with cast members and the director of their highly anticipated action-adventure “Marvel’s The Avengers,” opening in theaters on May 4, 2012. The 30-minute live tweeting event features writer/director Joss Whedon and cast members Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg.
Today- HUGE news! Samuel L. Jackson will be joining the twitter party as well!!
Fans around the world will be able to participate in the Q&A on Twitter by using the @Avengers handle and the #Avengers hashtag. Participating fans will have the opportunity to see a 10-second tease of the 30-second Super Bowl spot that will air during Super Bowl XLVI on February 5 on NBC. They will also have a chance to answer “Avengers” trivia for a chance to win “Avengers” prize packs.
I am such a fan geek of Marvel (and yes, I MAY have actually played some forum RPG game where I played Storm..ahem) and this is so exciting! Nick Fury on my twitter stream, how cool is that? I’ll be checking this out while I wait for the arrival of The Avengers this May!
Hope to see you at the Twitter Party!
