We've known the primary cast members and characters of Marvel's The Avengers live-action assembly since last year, with a few appearances learned later than others. And two weeks from the film's worldwide release, Walt Disney Pictures has released the full and final cast & crew list, which has interestingly revealed a few additional appearances from actors and comic characters, unknown up until now. Check out the list and rundown below!

Kicking off the rundown, actor Alexis Denisof will be portraying "The Other," which'll likely involve the credits teaser of the film. Denisof is known for his roles in Joss Whedon's Angel & Dollhouse series. He has also lent his voice to various characters in DC's direct-to-video animated films All-Star Superman, Justice League: Doom, Batman Beyond, & Justice League Unlimited. He recently reteamed with Whedon for Much Ado About Nothing.



Next up, Polish film director, screenwriter, dramatist and actor, Jerzy Skolimowski will be portraying Georgi Luchkov in the film, which is the name of a former Russian KGB-Agent in the comics, and a foe of Natasha Romanov a.k.a Black Widow, portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the movie.



Portraying one of the World Security Council members, television & film actor Powers Boothe is best known for his Sin City role as Senator Roarke. He also voiced characters in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.



Kenneth Tigar's role in the film is listed as a simple "German Old Man." However, the actor played Margan and Dammar in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager , receiving no screen credit for neither appearances. He has also appeared in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.



Although Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo revealed his inclusion in the film at a recent press conference, also attending the premiere, American actor, musician, and singer Harry Dean Stanton will portray a Security Guard. He has starred in iconic films Alien (1979), The Green Mile, and Repo Man.



Albanian-American actor Enver Gjokaj was spotted on The Avengers while filming was underway in Cleveland, however, no one was sure he'd appear in the film. Now with confirmation, Gjokaj will be playing a Young Officer. He's best known for playing supporting character Victor in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse series.



Television actress Romy Rosemont has appeared in multiple popular TV series, however, what's more pivotal is the character she's playing in The Avengers and the fact it's from the comics. Her character, Shawna Lynde, was a physician in the comics mostly affiliated with Thor and his alter-ego, Dr. Donald Blake.



Best known for playing Jim Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1990 to 1995, actor James Eckhouse will be portraying Senator Boynton, who's also a character from the comics. Senator Boyton was a politician aware of the plan to use Firepower against the rogue Iron Man during the Armor Wars.




Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, & directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble on May 4, 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013!; and “Thor 2” on November 15, 2013.

I'm assuming The Other is Thanos's right hand man, who we see a couple of times in the film...

MrAnonymous

Thats wat i was goona ask myself. Her brief appearance in TFA as well as the rumor, due to her " CODE 13 " reference, that she was Sharon Carter, i thought she'd have some kind of role in The Avengers and maybe love interest of Cap's.
Coloso - 4/22/2012, 12:53 AM
@MrAnonymous don't see her name, bummer :(

MGS - 4/22/2012, 1:20 AM
Man, time has not been kind to Stanton. He looks like a hobo.
skidz - 4/22/2012, 1:31 AM
Interesting, 'The Other' is a Spiderman miniseries. And Whedon said there wouldn't be any Easter eggs

thetrojan - 4/22/2012, 4:28 AM
i have to share a secret of my own

i hated buffy...never watched the tv show (film was cute)
I detested serenity...generic, typical, nasty taste....

I watched cabin in the woods , pretty clever,fun,nice effects,great acting.....

HAVE YE SEEN THE AVENGERS PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL???????

YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
thetrojan - 4/22/2012, 4:30 AM
also,hank pym and janet should be slightly young,
the cast is starting to age a bit....then again,there aint going to be any marvel re-boots of these characters for a while.
DCMarvelFreshman - 4/22/2012, 5:04 AM
@grif I'm not familiar with any of these actors, so I judge what an actor is "best known" for according to IMDB. In fact, I wouldn't know who most of the MCU actors were until they were cast. Most, like Boothe, were before my time. I'm a '93 baby.
CherryBomb - 4/22/2012, 5:08 AM
Surprised to see Alexis in there! had no idea he was involved. I like Romy Rosemont though :D

Awwh! I wanted to see Amanda Righetti :'(
CherryBomb - 4/22/2012, 5:10 AM

@thetrojan I agree! When they cast the 40 year old Jeremy Renner I was like "WHAT?" I always imagined Hawkeye as slightly younger, maybe 30 at most, Jeremy is definitely old looking :/ I'm disappointed.

EarOne - 4/22/2012, 5:22 AM
hmmm...overall, i'm a bit UNDERwhelmed. all the actors i'm hoping to be in the movie in supporting roles or cameos are absent from that list.

Denisof, i've always thought might make a fitting Mr. Fantastic in a Fantastic Four reboot, with Rosamund Pike as his Sue.

i think that Arthur Darbinyan guy as one of the security council is playing a character that will be played by Ben Kingsley in Iron Man 3..cuz they look so much alike. i thought that was Sir Ben in the picture with Jenny, Powers and Sam.

but these actors and their respective roles are the ones i'm looking forward to make appearances in The Avengers: Natalie Portman, William Hurt, Idris Elba or Jaimie Alexander, Amanda Righetti and Hayley Atwell as Jane Foster, Gen. Ross, Heimdall (the bifrost gate keeper) or Lady Sif (thor's best friend), Sharon and Peggy Carter. i think the characters i've just mentioned NEED to be in this movie.
kevberg - 4/22/2012, 5:30 AM
No way..Alexis Denisof is the dead on visual counterpart of Bruce Banner. Like he stepped off the comic page.
kevberg - 4/22/2012, 5:32 AM
and im not talking the stupid disheveled pervert hobo version from ultimates.
marvelmaniaco - 4/22/2012, 6:05 AM
I like Alexis and now knowing he's in it along with all my favourite actors is amazing!!! I wonder who he is playing though and @thegambitfreak- if those two actually were antman and wasp I will die a happy man fair play and I disagee I like Jeremy reener as hawkeye great casting if you ask me, he's just badass
eviltattooedguy - 4/22/2012, 6:14 AM
Im gonna say that alexis is gonna be baron zemo. Leading up to a sequel with the movie version of the masters of evil. That would be badass
Gmoney84 - 4/22/2012, 6:23 AM
Wasn't powers boothe in tombstone? Great film.
Rodimus9 - 4/22/2012, 6:39 AM
Carrier bridge tech played by a 8 year old? This list is questionable.

Rodimus9 - 4/22/2012, 6:46 AM
Harry Dean Stanton....RED DAWN!! FTW!!!
SCURVYDOG619 - 4/22/2012, 6:48 AM
The 'Other',eh?

Sure that's not another name for 'Watcher'?

They haven't introduced the Watcher in the movies yet,you know...
