Sleek New Character Banners for Marvel's 'The Avengers' Assembled!
Avengers Assemble! Marvel has debuted the first banner, which looks much more like a billboard, for The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon. On this banner, debuted by Yahoo (via ComingSoon), we get to see Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner (with a tinge of green), Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and last but not least, Chris Hemsworth as Thor. These are new shots from each of them, and I expect we'll see individual posters soon (along with the other missing members), but for now this is an awesome banner to kick off their winter marketing, and I'm excited to see more. Bring it on!
Update: Here's the second banner, as debuted on Moviefone. Looks like everyone! Sam Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, plus Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.
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.
