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.
