Thor, The Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man and Hawkeye are teaming up to take the box office by storm. Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ officially kicks off the summer box office, and it’s on track to be one of the biggest movies of the year, and one of the top five opening weekends of all time.
