The Movie Avengers Assemble For New Comic Book Tie-In Promotion

The Avengers (2012) Movie Promo Cast Image

Here’s another look at Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” all assembled and ready for battle in a new promotional tie-in with the comic book universe. I doubt if those are the actual actors getting together in costume on a stage and having their pic snapped. More like a nice Alex Ross-ish comic book cover with the actors’ faces penciled in to reflect the cast of the movie. Either way, it’s still kinda cool to see them all together.

The whole thing, of course, is to get some of you non-comic book reading nerds out there to familiarize yourself with the characters’ comic book roots via re-releases of their popular comic book storylines, including their “Ultimate Avengers” version, which, in many ways, the upcoming movie represents more than the traditional Marvel versions. Odd how that worked out…

The film, starring Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, assembles for real May 4, 2012.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    I love it! Hulk looks awesome! Can’t wait to see how he comes out in the movie. I really like the comic look of Fury too. Hawkeye finally sporting the glasses looks cool. I’m not sure wht is up with Cap having the ears out but it still looks good. His boots look sick! Ironman with the circular arc reactor is okay. Don’t really like the steel leg parts though. Thor’s new pants and boots look good. I’m not a fan of the blue glow of his hammer but they always seem to do that in these illustrations for some reason. Black Widow looks good but the same. Can’t wait to see a real image from the film of the entire team together.

      I’m right with you on this one Juggy! I love it. I actually think Cap’s ears being out make it look easier to deal with since losing the chinstrap. Fury in S.H.E.I.L.D. gear is awesome and Hulk looks amazing. I so can’t wait for this.

      • Eagle Eye

        Im with you guys, Hulk looks fantastic but for me Hawkeye steals the show, hes just oozing with awesomeness!!!!

      • Juggernaut

        I don’t mind the ears. In the set videos he has the full head gear. I suppose that these illustrations are just rough drafts. Maybe by the end of the film they’ll each have these moderations made to their outfits. Thor with the sleeveless look too!

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

          Well Thor has the sleeves in the set video so who knows. I’m trying not to speculate to hard. If anything this is a comic tie in so there are bound to be some differences.
          Sent on the go!

    • Avery_celestino

      looks really cool to me all of them!! fury costume is great at least he doesn’t look like a fbi agent with sunglass then hawk eye change the costume in modern with shades….cool…

  • Vision

    personally i think hawkeye is the only one looking bit “stupid” lol
    in the comic and cartoon i really like his character, but the interviews i saw so far from jeremy renner, im not sure if he is the right choice >< i hope im proven wrong, but he was one of the few in that team, judging from the interviews who didnt had that much fun and was always so serious and sounded bit drunk lol
    for the rest its good, even i like samueal jackson, i hope his part wont be that big, cause it should be still a movie bout the avengers not about SHIELD. hope also they will get a mansion and not only the helcarrier.

    • Juggernaut

      I think that for the first one they’ll use the hellicarrier as their primary base of operations. Maybe in a sequel Tony will open the doors to a new Avengers Mansion.

  • TotesMagotes

    I don’t know if any of you can tell, but Thor’s armor is also a bit different. The metal circles on the top are bigger and there’s a different design in the middle. I noticed it in the set videos of him fighting with Cap.
    But Hulk looks awesome! He actually looks like Ruffalo!
    Scarlett Jo looks bomb as always, but why did Ironman go back to his old armor….

    • Eagle Eye

      Yeah, i like how Iron Man quickly got rid of that life saving new power source (the triangle reactor) just for fashion’s sake, ha ha!!

  • TotesMagotes

    Hawkeye actually looks the dumbest to me. He’s kneeling down like he has to take a dump…..

    • GOD OF THUNDER

      IT’S TRUE

      • GOD OF THUNDER

        but hawkeye is still cool
