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.

Maybe they're renaming the Hulk 'Blue Steel'?
KHD on Nov 17, 2011
Sam Jack is lookin' bad-ass right there!

What the hell is wrong with Chris Hemsworths face?
sk0ut on Nov 17, 2011
Oh, come on, at least he doesn't look like a harlequin hero as in that awful photoset from EW.
tinfs21 on Nov 17, 2011
Sharp, i like it. Im also OK with them holding off on revealing much of the Hulk, when we see it, its gonna blow our minds—but until then they should really work on making Ruffalo look less stupid. Oh, yes, and wonderful framing of Scarlets ass.
Voice of Reason on Nov 17, 2011
Make sure to carefully pose and crop that black widow photo so we get a good shot of Johannsen's ass, huh? You marketing guys know us so well!
Tom Brazelton on Nov 17, 2011
Wow, they still make Banner look like a douche, and what is up with Cap's costume, too cartoon BLUE! I really have faith in this and LOVE Joss and everyone involved..but I am not digging Cap's costume and everything I've seen of banner so far
Michael Regina on Nov 17, 2011
what happened to all of caps muscles?
Phil Sechrist on Nov 17, 2011
He...didn't work out for 70 years? Maybe being in an ice coma deflates you.
caleigh. on Nov 17, 2011
Yeah, it does'nt even look like him... looks like a model for when a web site is trying to sell a costume... maybe he could'nt make the photo shoot so they just got some guy to conveniently cover his mouth so we could'nt tell.

With all the marketing produced, it's going to make more sense that the Hulk is angry as fahk because all of his(Ruffalo) material looks kind of lame. I wouldn't have had his face green with that cool expression - Just leave his eyes green and we're good.
Nick Sears on Nov 17, 2011
why does loki have the avenger logo on him.....
Oneninetwo on Nov 17, 2011
Because he's their prime adversary, and a very large part of the "Avengers" film?
Mer on Nov 17, 2011
Scarlett, Scarlett, Scarlett...good lord.
Tunptl on Nov 17, 2011
Cap's eyes look dead and his skin looks waxy. Everyone else looks good.

I like all of them minus Cap's.... he's framed too low in comparison to the others, and the angle makes him look like he's really thin.
Brandon Carey on Nov 17, 2011
These are boring; dude, art students on tumblr came up with better teasers on whimsy. These look cheap.
Mer on Nov 17, 2011
can we get a better looks at Scarlett Johansson's ass... i mean, these are really cool!!
Said Samayoa on Nov 17, 2011
crap... those posters look pretty lame. Thor is all wrong (what's with the head!), Captain America's suit is awful, we haven't seen Hulk yet... ah... the horroooooor!
Leinergroove on Nov 17, 2011
I like to see you do better dickhead

Scarlett looks short and stumpy.
Kyle Robinson on Nov 17, 2011

These are almost as lazy as the X-Men First Class posters http://www.firstshowing.net/2011/dont-look-two-new-x-men-first-class-posters-to-ruin-your-day/
Carney_71 on Nov 17, 2011
Yeah, they're pretty ordinary. Don't think the concept or compositions really work very well. We're all already going to see your movie - at least once, so why don't you put some effort in and give us something COOL and MEMORABLE.
darthstu on Nov 17, 2011
In an age where we've pretty much seen it all, these are not bad!
Spider on Nov 17, 2011
Fingers off the triggers, agents....
Merc on Nov 17, 2011
And all of the costumes don't look right, as if they are all matte and are missing their shine. Does anyone else see it?
Merc on Nov 17, 2011
too clean. needs roughing up so doesnt look so camp.
CrusaderG on Nov 17, 2011
Agreed, what happened to the Captain America aesthetic?
Staatz on Nov 18, 2011
Could be better. I've seen better fan art.
The Background Story on Nov 18, 2011
its ok. don't know why they are trying to hide the hulk so much. Can't see how they will do way better than the previous versions, but I'd love to be blown away.
ur_baby's_daddy on Nov 18, 2011
Caps face is covered...booooo
esophus on Nov 18, 2011
they have made loki so evil. why coulden't they show some more of them. but tom hiddleston is the best.
