'Avengers' Stars to Present at the Oscars, not in spandix



Five members of the blockbuster Marvel superhero franchise will appear on stage at the Dolby Theater on February 24. The next time the Avengers assemble, it will be in tuxedos, not spandex.

Academy Award show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced on Wednesday morning that five members of the blockbuster superhero film will present at this year's Oscars. The actors -- Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Evans -- were part of a team that helped the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers earn over $1.5 billion worldwide at the box office.

Four of the five presenting members have been nominated for Oscars previously, with Downey Jr. and Renner boasting two nominations apiece. Jackson was a co-star in this year's best picture-nominated Django Unchained.

The Avengers, which marked the culmination of the first phase of an expansive, multi-franchise comic movie universe built by Disney, is nominated at this year's Oscars for best visual effects.
