First Look: Logo-Only Teaser Poster for Marvel's 'The Avengers' Hits!
We're about to kick off Comic-Con down in San Diego this week and although some have said Avengers was going to be a no show this summer, we broke the news that they'd actually have quite a big presence. To start up the hype machine for The Avengers, Marvel has released the first official teaser poster and it's exactly what I expected we'd see - just a logo. Don't worry, we'll get a hell of a first glimpse when the teaser trailer hits, but in the meantime, this should hold us over and start some early buzz. The poster comes from the new official Avengers website (via ComingSoon), so check it out in full below! Everyone getting excited?
When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), 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. The star studded cast includes Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, as well as Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgård who are reprising their respective roles as Loki and Professor Selvig from Thor. Marvel's The Avengers hits theaters everywhere May 4th, 2012.

If it's a logo-only poster, don't say "hits" and put an exclamation point there. It's not exciting!

You're joking right?!

NO one knows the films plot yet except for the people working on the film. When they are ready, and I am sure it will be in the next couple of months, at least by christmas the information will probably be available. Be patient. No one is dying from not knowing.

Slick poster design. I REALLY hope they have Thor look like "Ultimates Thor", cuz that's probably the most badass/modern interpretation of him.

why is there a paramount logo instead of a disney logo

Although Disney acquired the rights to the characters, other movie studios, such as Paramounts own the rights to the movies--which is why they keep doing reboots and sequels. They don't wanna give the rights up just yet! lol
