Avengers To Present Award At Oscars
Plus Mark Wahlberg and Ted...

06 February 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: THR

Over the weekend, it emerged that Mark Wahlberg and his CGI bear chum Ted were going to present an award at the 2013 Academy Awards - but all that's been overshadowed by the news that five Avengers stars have agreed to do the very same.

Those excited to see Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth in their finest duds on stage will have to take a deep breath, however, as it's only the five other leads who've been officially confirmed by Academy Award show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Mero.

The specific award that Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Evans will be handing out together hasn't been announced as yet, but it's interesting to note just how far the producers are willing to go to get younger viewers tuning in.

Whether The Avengers stars will turn up in their characters' outfits remains to be seen - in your dreams, perhaps? - but it's definitely another good reason to tune in once Sunday February 24 comes along.

P.S. If you're looking for a taste of what to expect from host Seth MacFarlane on the night itself, here's one of the teaser YouTube clips he's been releasing of late, designed to tie in with both the 50th anniversary of Bond celebrations and Adele's planned performance of Skyfall on the evening itself. Warning: may offend both Bond and cocktail fans...

What, no Loki?
No Tom Hiddleston? What's the point.... :) Okay, I'm sort of kidding. But presenters need a hook, and Loki's presence would be perfect. Not to mention the extra viewers he'd bring in. More
