Jackson, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremey Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, and newbie Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. The hi-res shots feature close-ups with S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury (who’s rumored to have his own film in the works), along with a less-green Bruce Banner and iron suit-free Tony Stark.
