'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. You can watch the first trailer here, the Super Bowl spot here, or the newest theatrical trailer here.

I wish Iron Man had his helmet on!

Think they worry that if they don't show Robert Downey Junior's face the general public won't know he's in it, and therefore won't go "oh that guy from due date is in it, lets go to it LOL he's so funny".

"One Giant Banner?" That is to say, "One giant Bruce Banner." I'll let myself out.

It does look strange without a chin strap. I'll give you that.
Ethan Anderton on Mar 14, 2012
that may be all it needs but the look itself is completely stupid

Getting a lot of mileage out of those images

was about to say something similar. With a multi million dollar budget you'd think they would've had a photo shoot or something for advertisements. Marvel definitely needs some new people on the marketing team

I'm afraid to see how the cover of "The Avengers" DVD is going to look with all of these cartoony posters

Oh MAN. THESE. ARE. THE. SAME. IMAGES. Nothing new.....nothing new at all.....stop it, just stop it.

All of the posters for this movie have been an absolute tragedy. They should be ashamed. For a summer blockbuster movie they should be paying a little more attention to little details like this. I know the final movie is the product they are concerned with, but the movie posters are still a part of the whole. A very small part, but a part none the less. There is no excuse for a major studio to put out work like this.

Totally agree! At least make the figures look like they're on the same plane. Looks like whoever did this just threw characters in there, with no regards to composition, perspective, and depth. I could find tons of things wrong with this poster. I could understand if this was a low budget film, but come on Marvel, this is the Avengers movie that you've been building up for years with lots of $$$ into it. Couldn't you get someone to do a better job?
