Wow! At the end of Marvel’s Thor /Captain America panel presentation, they surprised the audience with a short teaser for The Avengers, which was followed by a surprise appearance from Samuel L. Jackson who came out to introduce the official cast of the movie! Find out more after the jump!

Just as the crowd was preparing to leave, the lights dimmed, and the silhouette of the Avengers emblem glowed on screen, as Jackson began to narrate:

“And then there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines…”

He then introduced S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), and Tony Stark himself (Iron Man), Robert Downey Jr!

Downey went on to announce Jeremy Renner who’s been cast as Hawkeye and it was revealed that Mark Ruffalo will be taking over from Edward Norton as The Hulk! And then HE joined them on stage! Then Joss Whedon came out! They were all on stage together, in the same place at the same time, just like it will be in 2012 when the movie comes out! Wow!
