The Avengers be Assemblin’ in a New Poster, Gets Title Change for UK – UPDATED


The Avengers (2012) Movie Image

Captain America, Iron Man, and the rest of the Avengers boys (and girl) strike a heroic pose in a new “Avengers” poster. I’m not entirely sure what Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is doing there in the background, though. I think he’s resting his left leg on something? Doing some waist turning exercises (while holding his gun)? No idea, but Nick Fury is a complicated man like that, so we should assume whatever he’s doing, it’s to save us from evil shenanigans. We’re told that a new trailer will be popping up online tomorrow at 9AM PST, so be on the look out for that, comic book fans.

“The Avengers”, from director Joss Whedon of “Buffy” fame, will pit the world’s first superheroes against the mischievous evil of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his merry band of invaders, who may or may not be aliens. At this point, I’m kind of sick of trying to guess their identity. They’ll just end up being Hulk fodder anyway, right?

The film also stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, and is due out May 4th, 2012 according to the poster below.

Update: According to HeyUGuys, “The Avengers” will be called “The Avengers Assemble” in the UK only in order to differentiate it from the 1960s “The Avengers” TV show (as well as the 1998 movie starring Uma Thurman and Ralph Fiennes). Here’s the UK’s version of the same poster. HeyUGuys have also confirmed the title change in the UK only with Disney.

    Not sure if someone has mention this before, but I don’t like (AT ALL) Thor’s wig. It looks so fake and cheap!

  • Debo4737

    What about the fact that Captain America look like he never took the super syrim…he looks scawny and week. Also why in the hell would you cast someone like Mark Ruffalo as Banner that dude looks hispanic.

    • W.A.S

      i dont think he looks so scrawny. have you seen the pictures where hes standing next to RDJ or jeremy renner? he looks so much wider then them. and the up close pictures he still looks pretty big. and some of the pictures where hes wearing normal cloths his forarms look huge. and any bodys going to look small next to the hulk! :)

  • DarkKnighters

    what in the world is Cap doing at the back?…He should have been on the middle and the character should be the guiding point not that the man playing Iron Man is more senior or the bigger star…i get it let his name come first on the credits but follow the order of the character based on the comic books own merit.

    At first I was Like 8======D, then I was like 8=D
    There are so many things wrong with this poster.

  • Wildbullagow

    I’m trying to reserve judgement, but I do want to go on record saying that Joss Whedon is a tool and I hate EVERYTHING he’s EVER done. I really hope that I’m wrong and this movie is all that I know it could be, but losing Ed Norton was a BAD idea. And Joss Whedon is a tool. Don’t believe me? Go watch that travesty of an Alien sequel.

  • NCounter

    Uhm! Just one question…nobody asked so i might just as well…”April 26th”??? Is the UK going to watch the movie earlier than the rest of the world? OR! Is that just Loki toying with us?

    • Juggernaut

      Hmmm, good question! I was so distracted by the horrible images that it totally escaped me.

  • Eagle Eye

    You know, the way this Poster is designed, i can almost see in a near future (where Marvel own all there characters) Wolverine (Played by Thomas Jane), DeadPool (Played by Michael Rosenbaum), Elektra (Played by Lynn Collins), DareDevil (Played by Michael C Hall), Ghost Rider ‘Danny Ketch’ (Played by Garett Hedlund) and Spider Man (Played by either Andrew Garfield, Logan Lerman or Justin Bartha).

    That day will be a day of rejoicing, it really will be, a tear will be shed that day…
