Hey, beggars can’t be choosers, right? So, in that spirit, here’s your first look at an official teaser poster for Joss Whedon’s upcoming “The Avengers”, snapped by ESQ. (h/t CBM). The poster was on display at the Licensing International Expo, so it’s basically a very early, photoshopped-together poster to sell the movie’s merchandising licenses to various buyers who attends the shindig.

You shouldn’t expect the real thing to look too much like this, but it does give you an idea of what The Hulk, Hawkeye, The Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor will look like. In particular, it seems The Black Widow and Hawkeye really will have a pretty big role in this thing, and won’t just be supporting characters.

Whedon’s “The Avengers” assemble for real May 4, 2012.

Added: Comic Vine has added another look at the poster above.

    Woohooo, looks terrific, can’t wait for summer 2012, looking amazing!!!

    Hawkeye’s costume is his Ultimate’s gear but in black and purple, not black and red. I like the updated Captain America look, it’s sleeker, but still similar in style. And I think I see a little Ruffalo in the Hulk. I wouldn’t count these looks out as this s very much like the concept art pics we saw of both Cap and Thor which were eventually ued for marketing.

        HULK NOT NEED PANTS!!!! HULK WANG CAN TAKE BOMB!!! MOVE CAPE, LET PUNY HUMANS SEE GLORY OF HULK’S WANG!!!!

    Interesting!. So that’s the new suit for Captain America on the Avengers.

    It does looks less heavy.

    The whole poster barely looks less ridiculous than those early “X-Men: First Class” posters, but I’ll take whatever sneak peek at Hawkeye’s costume we can get. And it looks pretty cool. Can’t wait for first official photos

      It’ a promo poster. More along the lines of what will be on T-shirts, toy packs and such.

    This looks sickkk.

    HOLY F***ING $H!+ This looks so good, i love how they look, I love this poster, omg Ironman looks amazing, hawkeye, I actually don’t mind him not having the mask if he looks this awesome, but I do wish we see it, apparently the hulk is naked lol, but the hulk looks fine, CA looks pretty sick, i just wish we could see maria hill in this poster

      Maria Hill as well as NIck Fury are not Avengers. However, once official posters and promotional materials come out there will be a character one shot for them.
      As far as the poster above… Hawkeye needs the shades, Hulk needs some pants and for the life of me, I don’t know why in drawing renditionings of the movie Thor (on toys, posters and such) Mjolnir is glowing blue! It looks nothing like it did in the movie, at all. I know that this isn’t a finnished product or cinematic poster and all but still.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

        It’s to show the power of the hammer instead of just having lightning all aorund. And agreed he needs shades. Make them tactical too with like enhanced vision and such.

        • Juggernaut

          I get that it shows the power of the hammer but come on, it looks dumb! I think that just having him sport the hammer in something like this is enough. Just my opinion. Either way, when the real promotional material comes out it will no doubt be amazing!
          Agreed on Hawkeye’s glasses. I imagine them being much like the ones that Dog The Bounty Hunter wears (I know how dumb that sounds. Lol) They’re Okleys but have a bit of tech incorporated into them. Those, plus an earpiece communicator would be cool. Not sure if they can pull off a nod to his original suit like they did with Ironman and Cap though. His is tough. Definately no excuse for his mask to show up that I could think of. For the body part though they could have him undercover at some kind of reniessance faire like they reference in the Thor film. LOL.

            It’s just a picture, and it’s more for the kids. Sheesh. LOL.

            The glasses were done like that in “Blade: The Series,” complete with thermal vision. And dude you’re trething for that himage. If anything he should have it hanging on a wall (pinned with arrows of course) and when someone mentions it he’s like “It was my performance gear in the circus. What? I needed to make a few bucks after I got out of the military.”

          • Juggernaut

            That would work. I think we’ll agree that it’s best that they just leave that one out! Lol.

          • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

            LoL. Agreed!

    Now considering there is a black hole/tornado above them, it could be Skrull-Loki-Thanos, don’t quite know which though, it looks more space-ish than mystical, so ill go for Skrulls!!

      We noticed but since its just a prelim poster we didn’t care. Naked Hulk running around with his gamma wang was a bit more pressing. Lol. People are still in shock from Dr. Manhattan I guess.
