Fan’s of Marvel’s massively popular movie The Avengers can see most of the cast this evening as they present as award at the 85th Oscars. Bad news is, Scarlett Johansson will NOT be on stage with the guys.
Show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that castmates Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo will reunite and present together on the Oscar stage.
Downey has twice been nominated for an Oscar, for his leading role in “Chaplin” (1992) and for his supporting role in “Tropic Thunder” (2008). Evans, who will be making his first Oscar show appearance, will be seen in the upcoming “The Iceman.” Jackson was nominated in 1994 for his supporting role in “Pulp Fiction.” He can also be seen in this year’s Best Picture nominee, “Django Unchained.” Renner was nominated for his leading role in the 2009 Best Picture winner, “The Hurt Locker,” and for his supporting role in “The Town” (2010). Renner also had roles in this year’s “The Bourne Legacy” and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” (2011). Ruffalo received his first nomination for his supporting role in the 2010 Best Picture nominee, “The Kids Are All Right.”
Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
It’s a true shame that this mug won’t be seen on stage with the rest of the cast. I mean really, when it comes right down to it, Black Widow is the glue that holds the Avengers together. She is THE most integral member of the team. Not having her on the stage with the rest of the cast is a travesty! Ok, now I’m ticked off. Who do I need to complain to, to get this fixed! This woman has shown us depth to a character that is unparalleled! Her poise, charisma and charm demand to be seen at the biggest awards show. I think I speak for all fans when I say I shall shed a tear when only the guys walk out on that stage tonight. Scarlett, wherever you are, know that you were missed.
