'Avengers' Character Posters Assemble Again for One Giant Banner
A batch of six new posters for The Avengers, which is just a month and a half away, surfaced this week, taking the theatrical poster and essentially changing some hero stances and splitting the downtown action sequence into smaller pieces to focus on specific character duos. Now those posters have combined (with some mild differences) with a wider perspective for one big banner featuring Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor and Captain America alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Black Widow, Nick Fury and Maria Hill defending, or rather avenging, the Earth. It's still the same glossy Photoshop finish from before, so just beware. Look!
Here's the giant new banner for Marvel's The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, found via GeekTyrant:
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 from Thor. Marvel's The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon (Serenity), hits theaters everywhere May 4th, 2012.
