The real fighting in the upcoming "The Avengers" movie may not be between the superheroes and the villains but amongst the crime fighters themselves.
"It's Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor," Chris Hemsworth, who plays the latter character, told CNN at a junket for his action-packed "Thor." "[They] all come together and attempt to form an alliance. It's tension-filled. We've got some big egos in that group and they don't play well with others all the time, you know."
As Marquee previously reported, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans will play Iron Man and Captain America — characters the actors have each portrayed previously in solo films — while Mark Ruffalo has been cast as the big green monster the Hulk.
Writer-director Joss Whedon plans to begin shooting the movie, which is set for release in May 2012, ASAP.
"We're shooting soon," Hemsworth told CNN. "Pretty much as soon as the ['Thor' press tour] is over."
