Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, Marvel’s The Avengers brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers is the super hero team up of a lifetime.

It's not a theatrical poster, it's artwork for toy lines, party supplies, etc. It falls in line with all the other movie related merchandising artwork

I'm impressed but I have to ask. Is that a glare or are the wings on Caps head that big?

I'm pretty sure that's glare unless he gets flight powers in this one. It also looks like Hawkeye is aiming for his head. Laughing out loud Really like the Cap costume and its good to have some visualization of what's going on. Big Grin

I'm a little bummed that they revealed the new Cap suit before the movie came out, but overall pretty nice. I could have sworn Ruffalo said that this Hulk was going to have hair on his chest to match him, but this is much better either way.

Those are definitely wings on cap's helmet! It is a shame they released this before the cap movie is out, I agree. I wish thor would have his damn helmet on!

I'm not that thrilled yet. I guess because it's an illustration and they're randomly floating. Plus, it's what we've come to expect. Unfortunately for me I'm more of a Fantastic 4 and X-Men fan, and who knows when a bona fide Marvel treatment of those will happen. But I am looking forward to see Hulk smashing with better CGI. I hope Avengers goes all out with the action! I think Marvel has been too efficient with their fight scenes.

That cap costume looks awesome. Really like the treatment there. The Ultimate Hawkeye look is pretty sick too.

My only complaint is how the artist(s) posed ScarJo in that poster. WAY too exaggerated Eek Most art based posters I've seen usually screw up Thor's look, they nailed it this time.

Cap's wings look three-dimensional, not painted on. I hope this is the case.

And is it me, or is that a private's stripe on his shoulder, indicating he has never formally taken a promotion?

Meh. looks cartoony and cheesy to me. This film is going to be a mess to see onscreen and Whedon will screw it up. Not enough screen time for everyone involved, plus the multiple villains?

Get ready to see a cheesefest of an Avengers film.

After playing so much "Captain America and the Avengers" on SNES as a kid, it feels odd not seeing The Vision in this. Is it just me?

I love the poster. I think it looks great. I like the simplicity of the graphics. It makes it feel more child-like.
