Development ofThe Avengersbegan when Marvel Studios received a grant from Merrill Lynch in April 2005. After the success of the filmIron Manin May 2008, Marvel announced thatThe Avengerswould be released in July 2011. With the signing of Scarlett Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the screenplay that was originally written by Zak Penn . Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque , New Mexico, before moving to Cleveland , Ohio in August 2011 and New York City in September 2011. The film was converted to 3D in post-production .

The Avengerspremiered on April 11, 2012 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Nick Fury ( Samuel L Jackson ), director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. , arrives at a remote research facility during an evacuation. The Tesseract , an energy source of unknown potential, has activated and opened a portal through space, from which the exiled Norse god Loki ( Tom Hiddleston ) steps through. Loki takes the Tesseract, and uses his abilities to control the minds of several S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel including agent Clint Barton ( Jeremy Renner ), and physicist consultant Dr. Erik Selvig ( Stellan Skarsgard ) in order to aid in his getaway.

In response to the attack, Fury reactivates the Avengers Initiative. Agent Natasha Romanoff ( Scarlett Johannson ) is sent to India to recruit Dr. Bruce Banner ( Mark Ruffalo ), while Agent Philip Coulson ( Clark Gregg ), approaches Tony Stark ( Robert Downey Jr. ) and requests that he reviews Dr. Selvig's research. Fury himself approaches Steve Rogers ( Chris Evans ) with an assignment to retrieve the Tesseract from Loki. During his exile, Loki encountered the Chitauri , an alien race seeking to conquer the galaxy with the Tesseract. In exchange for the Tesseract, the Chitauri agree to help Loki subjugate Earth.

Iron Man, Captain America, and Romanoff travel to Germany to apprehend Loki, who is stealing iridium needed to stabilize the Tesseract's power and demanding that the civilians kneel before him. After a battle with Captain America, Loki surrenders and is escorted back to a S.H.I.E.L.D. plane. However, Thor ( Chris Hemsworth ), Loki's adoptive brother and the Norse god of thunder, arrives and attempts to free Loki to reason with him. Iron Man and Captain America confront Thor, and Loki is eventually returned to the Helicarrier, a high-tech, flying aircraft carrier, and placed in a cell designed to hold The Hulk .

The Avengers are divided, both over how to approach Loki and the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. plan to harness the Tesseract’s power to develop weapons. Fury admits that the events in New Mexico a year before made S.H.I.E.L.D. aware of other races on other worlds, some of which may see Earth as an easy target. The decision was made to produce weapons with the Tesseract as a means of deterrence . As the group argues, Clint Barton and Loki’s possessed agents attack the Helicarrier, disabling its engines in flight. As Stark and Rogers attempt to restart the damaged engines, Dr. Banner transforms into the Hulk, despite Romanoff's best efforts to calm him down, and runs amok inside the ship, fighting Thor are both ejected from the ship. During a fight with Barton, Romanoff discovers that a blow to the head — powerful enough to knock Barton unconscious — is enough to break Loki's mind control. The Helicarrier lands on the surface of the ocean, but Loki escapes and traps Thor in his cell. In addition to this, when Coulson tries to attack Loki, (with a gun that he doesn't even know what it does) he stabbed Coulson in the back, killing him.

Fury uses Coulson's death to motivate the Avengers into working as a team. Stark and Rogers realize that simply defeating them will not be enough for Loki; he needs to overpower them in a very public way so as to validate himself as ruler of Earth. Using a device built by Dr. Selvig, Loki opens a portal to the Chitauri fleet over Manhattan, summoning a Chitauri invasion.

The Avengers rally in defense of New York, but quickly come to the conclusion that they will be overwhelmed as wave after wave of Chitauri descend upon Earth. With help from Hawkeye, Captain America and Thor evacuate civilians, while Dr. Banner transforms into the Hulk again and goes after Loki, beating him into submission. Black Widow makes her way to the portal, where Dr. Selvig, freed of Loki's control, reveals that Loki's staff can be used to close the portal.

Meanwhile, Fury's superiors attempt to end the invasion by launching a nuclear missile at Manhattan. Iron Man intercepts the missile and takes it through the portal toward the Chitauri fleet before running out of power and plummeting back to Earth, but the Hulk catches him as he falls. Thor escorts Loki and the Tesseract back to Asgard, while Fury notes that the Avengers will go their separate ways until such time as a new world-threatening menace emerges.

During a post-credits scene, the Chitauri leader is grovelling to his master, stating that Earth is heavily guarded and attacking Earth "would be to court death". A shadowy figure turns to the camera and smiles.
