Marvel Studios is sponsoring a live global Twitter chat session Tuesday featuring writer/director Joss Whedon and cast members Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg from the upcoming tentpole release Marvel’s The Avengers.
Fans from numerous countries will be able to ask questions and receive answers in their preferred language, using a real-time global translation tool provided by Ortsbo.com. The Twitter-fest will be moderated by Marvel’s taco-loving @Agent_M, known to the HR department as Ryan Penagos, executive editorial director, Marvel Digital Media Group & Marvel.com.
Even if their question doesn’t get a personal response, participating fans will get the opportunity to see a 10-second tease of the 30-second Super Bowl spot that will air during Super Bowl XLVI (on Feb. 5 on NBC) and to answer Avengers trivia for a chance to win prize packs relevant to the movie, which opens on May 4.
The Twitter session will run for 30 minutes on January 31 at 11 a.m. PST (7 p.m. GMT) using the @Avengers handle and the #Avengers hashtag.
