Marvel Studios has announced that they will be holding a Global Twitter Chat for The Avengers with writer and director Joss Whedon and cast members Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) . It will also include a 10-second teaser preview of the 30-second Super Bowl spot which will be shown on February 5th.
The event will take place on Tuesday, January 31, 2012, at 11 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time). Joss Whedon is another one of those famous talkers who can turn a one word response into a 20 minute story. So, I dunno how he’ll be able to conduct himself within Twitter’s 140 character limit, but I’m sure he will razzle dazzle as he always does. Hiddleston and Gregg will undoubtedly satisfy nerd cravings as well.
Here’s the full Press Release with all of the Information:
