New ‘The Avengers’ Poster!
A new poster has been released for Marvel’s epic ensemble piece “The Avengers,” which as you can see by the second poster will be called “Avengers Assemble” in the UK.
I’m not certain what the slight title differential buys for a British audience, it may just be a matter of clarifying that this is (at least in part) the story of the team coming together.
Synopsis via Fandango:
Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other. Show runner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) adapted and helmed the script by Zak Penn, which focuses on a superhero lineup put together by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to combat a hostile force out to destroy the world. Scarlett Johansson once again dons the Black Widow costume, with Jeremy Renner stepping into the role of ace archer Hawkeye. Tom Hiddleston also returns as Thor’s ever-deceptive brother, Loki.
“The Avengers” opens in AMC 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 4th.
Joss Whedon directs a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson.
