Six New 'Avengers' Posters Assemble as Midnight Tickets Go on Sale
If you didn't like the most recent poster for The Avengers with the whole group put together rather cinematically, then these posters probably won't be for you. Using the same setting, a new set of character posters basically splits up that image with some varying poses featuring Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Thor, Black Widow, Nick Fury and even Cobie Smulders shows up this time as Maria Hill. However, even if you don't like the posters, you should like the news that tickets for some midnight showings are already on sale. Hit The Avengers Facebook page for more info and see the posters below!
Here are the six new posters for Joss Whedon's The Avengers, via the gallery found on Cinema Blend:
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.

Is it just me or does Scarlett Johanson have a ginormous head in this movie?

It's not just the movie poster. She looks very odd in the trailers as well. The hairstyle isn't very becoming of her. She looked amazing in Iron Man 2 but now she just looks weird.

She just has a big-ass head

I wish they would have Iron Man keep his helmet on. I understand why they want to show off Downey Jr, but if the poster is showing a chaotic war zone, he should have his tin hat on.

These posters suck! The composition is very amateurish. Come on Marvel, with all that $, and being from an art medium.... you can do better than this.

I agree. I'm stupid stoked for the movie to come out, but the posters keep looking so much like a comic feature, or a colorful basis for little kids to enjoy. they should make posters like the one they used for the captain america movie...all dirty, gritty, and badass lookin:

A good example, his costume being the thing they changed the most... for the worse

really...using the same image not once...but twice! on two posters...feels cheap...this movie better make me blow a load.

Cobie looks a little awkward here. I hope she won't be just an afterthought in this.

These posters (that look quite graceless) just remind me how awesome would be a Justice League movie.

My friend and I were having a conversation about this movie and he came up with a great thought on why all the superheroes are unmasked in these Marvel films. He reckoned that the actors are the ones that are behind all the unmasking time in their movies. He thought that the actors or their agents said they need more exposure so that people don't just like the character they play, but they fall for the actor playing the character. IDK, but that made sense to me.

It could be that, that they prefer more face time instead of being behind a mask...but honestly the only one here really depending on the full-face helmet is RDJ as Tony Stark.

Actors are ppl too. You wouldn't want to be paid the same as someone else who is doing less work right? The work here is being on screen and acting.

Glossy, predictable and boring.
Davide Coppola on Mar 13, 2012
The posters, right--not the movie? (I kid, I kid! I'm not too enthusiastic about the posters myself, but that's not what's going to get me into the theater to see the film. Being a fan of the comics will do that.)
Scopedog on Mar 13, 2012
CAPTAIN AMERICA's HELMET IS RIDICULOUS....ok i got that done with... the positions they give is almost identical to the group shot but i do like that you never get just one character with each poster.........
Jericho on Mar 13, 2012
Love it! Awesome!

Avengers posters are extremely cool. I really love the way they design the posters.

The wonders of Photoshop never cease to amaze me.
Morning Glory on Mar 14, 2012
I don't understand that with so much money available they can't even hire someone with decent Photoshop skills. The Samuel L. Jackson one is hilarious: the body, the head and the hand with the gun all have different proportions. They had a body, pasted Sam's head on, but made it too big and with his chin down while that is not really possible in that position, then they took a hand with a gun, pasted it on, the lighting on Robert Downy Jr.'s head in his pic is completely off. I can go on 🙂

Not sure why Hawkeye is in front of the Hulk in poster.
Roderick on Mar 14, 2012
Not sure how many here actually read comics regualrly, but these posters totally remind me of Greg Land's art. The characters just stand there and pose and even though there are other characters present there's a disconnect between them, no real interaction.

Two facts, we are grown men, and this looks cheesy.
Konan on Mar 17, 2012
These are the absolute worst examples of cobbled-together tosh I think I've ever seen on such a high profile movie, or indeed maybe any movie. Considering the fact that any half-educated Avengers fan knows how these get put together, you'd think the producers would think 'OK, let's not bullshit around with pointlessly made up posters, let's do some great comic posters, or decent single shots'. These all suck immense donkey.
