Avengers stars set for red carpet

The stars of the latest Avengers movie will be on the red carpet for the film's European premiere tonight.

Cast and crew including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson are all expected at the Vue cinema in west London's Westfield.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is the follow-up to the hit 2012 film Avengers Assemble - both of which were directed by Joss Whedon.

Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk in both films, said he did not need much persuading to sign up for the latest one.

He told Black Tree TV: "Joss writes great material so you know you're going to be taken care of that way and it's going to be an interesting character that you get to play, but then we all really like each other and we have a great time together."

The first film was a huge hit which took more than £1 billion at the box office. Its follow-up sees the Marvel Comics superheroes forced into action when a high-tech peacekeeping programme - Ultron - goes badly wrong.
