Following up on that badly photoshopped EW cover featuring the “Avengers” superhero team all assembled and looking strange, comes three new images from the set of Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up. Obviously these aren’t complete shots, since, well, you can see the green screen in the background after all. I’m pretty sure that won’t be in the completed film. Update: EW has added the individual headshots of the Avengers from that EW cover. Update #2: Added additional images from the magazine itself.
In the film, Earth’s mightiest superheroes team up when a new, dangerous enemy threatens the entire world. That rascal Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is behind it all, I tell ya.
“The Avengers” stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as SHIELD agent Maria Hill round out the cast.
The Joss Whedon-directed film is due out in 2012.
