With Marvel’s The Avengers finally assembling in theaters one week from today, and SuperHeroHype are launching our full week of video interviews with the film’s cast and crew, starting with S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agents Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders).

In the first video, Jackson talks about helping to launch the cinematic Marvel universe with his famous post-credits cameo in 2008’s Iron Man and the possibility of a solo Nick Fury film. In the second, Gregg talks about Coulson’s expanded role into comics and the “Ultimate Spider-Man” animated series while Hill recalls the big screen teaming Joss Whedon that never happened on Warner Bros.’ now-defunct Wonder Woman.

Check back all throughout next week for interviews with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and writer/director Joss Whedon.
