Only ten days until The Avengers hit the big screen.
To give in the excitement, the forward days I’ll post a character from the movie by offering a little bio and a wallpaper from Wyndham Rewards.

The director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who was revealed in previous films to be coordinating the “Avenger Initiative“. Jackson was brought to the project with a deal containing an option to play the character in up to nine Marvel films.In April 2011, Jackson’s script was stolen and leaked on the internet after a digital copy was left in a printer. Jackson stated he does more in The Avengers than in any of the previous films and joked that “You don’t have to wait until the end of the movie to see me”. About the role Jackson commented, “It’s always good to play somebody that is a positive in society as opposed to somebody who is a negative… I tried to make him as honest to the story and as honest to what real-life would seem.” Jackson compared the character to Ordell in Jackie Brown, calling him “a nice guy to hang out with, you just don’t want to cross him”.
