The Avengers assemble in eight new awesome character posters

Nov. 17, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Usually character posters are one of the more annoyinng trends in movies, as they feature subcharacters no one really gives two shits about on a hastily photoshopped background. But when it's THE AVENGERS? I think we're going to be OK with giving each hero their due.

There's a brand new series of eight character posters from the upcoming film featuring all the major players. Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Loki all get their own posters, and you can see them all below.

Most look the same from their respective films, but CapAm and Thor have had a bit of work done on their costumes as we've seen in other shots. The selection is mostly free of photoshop disaster, though I barely recognized Mark Ruffalo in his image on first glance.

Check them all out below, and see them bigger over at the Pimpin Poster Palace.

Captain America looks like a toy. From the 1970s.
I'm not sure if that's a positive or a negative.

Hawkeye, Fury and Iron Man are the best looking. They gave Hawkeye a fancy tip arrow!!! The world can end in 2012 as long as it's AFTER this movie!!!!!

This movie is going to kick ass, but I must say...Bruce looks retarded as hell. Also, can we get a shot of Thanos or a skrull already? Theres been plenty of teaser posters and one sheets with th Avengers already.

Scar-Jo's Badonkadonk = Epic Win

To be honest, these posters are barely awesome. They're just playing safe with minimal effects and whatnot, and even then the heads on Iron Man and Thor look a bit weird. Don't get me wrong, I think this movie will be f**kloads of fun and then some, but these posters are average, safe, and not very attractive. Cool to see marketing getting into full-gear though.

Also, love how you saved Scar-Jo's poster for last. Geez louise, talk about making a poster with a single focus-point. Holy

The triangle WAS in Iron Man 2. His old power core was slowly killing him so with the help of his father's old tapes and Nick Fury, he created a new element and uses that for his suit instead. I personally think the triangle looks a lot cooler.

Loved the cap costume of the pre-avengers film, but I'm not loving it updated! Also, why not give us Hulk, what's with the glasses, doesn't looke anything like Bruce?! ..don't get me wrong, I'm just nitpicking.. Avengers in my top 5 of next year, which in general will be awesome with Bats, Hobbits, Avengers, Spidey, Promehteus, Brave.. bring on 2012!

Been Watching the Animated Series

I've been watching The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes as of late. It's almost as good as Justice League (unlimited) and the theme song kicks ass. I'm very excited for Joss Whedon's Avengers. I expect nothing but geek perfection.

Tears of joy. 2012 can't come soon enough. Well, the world can explode but I've got to watch The Avengers first!

I'm sure Ruffalo will be fine, but I really wish Norton would have stuck around as Banner.

They look weird

It looks like some of the characters had to get squished to fit the size of the poster. Iron Man looks like they shopped RDJ's head, and looks like they crunched Black Widow's head to fit her ass in the picture (not complaining but it looks like she has no neck). Meh.

I must say I appreciate the consistency of Scarlett Johanson's ass making it into every poster Black Widow has ever been in.

Average looking posters, given the potential for awesomeness in this film. Kinda makes me wish they'd use some Marvel artists to do these posters. A one sheet for this movie painted by Alex Ross would be excellent.

Thoughts.

1 - This is about the first movie in a long long time where character posters actually have a reason to exist.

2 - I'm confused. The Cap. America movie kept (annoyingly) removing Cap's mask to get Evan's face on the poster. Now they seem to have (thankfully) rectified that, they've even gone so far as to pretty much cover his ENTIRE face. Yet they feel the need to use an image of Iron Man without his mask on. Why?

3 - Johansson ass. It's lovely. And it amuses me how they've had ZERO shame

3 - Johansson ass. It's lovely. And it amuses me how they've had ZERO shame in putting it front and centre even though there's nothing sexual about the male posters at all, and let's be honest....that's a spot on representation of comic books.

Huzzah.

As much as I'm looking forward to this film, those posters are absolute shit. Save for the one showing Scarlet Johansson's ass of course. How can you think they are good, let alone awesome?

While I think this Cap costume could still use improvement, I do believe it is a major improvement over the previous incarnation. The old one was too busy with the grey straps, it looked too plushy and loose, and the mask looked like a bike helmet with holes. Again, this one is FAR from perfect, but much better. Is it too much to ask for scales and wings? Oh yes, of course it is..

Captian America's suit just doesn't look nearly as bass ass as it did in the First Avenger move. Why did they change it? Movie looks dope though. Can't wait to see the Hulk on the big screen again.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Black Widow's poster shows her rocking ass.

Hawkeye looks like he's about to cause some serious mayhem.
Dig the posters.
Agree with the extra tibit...crime against nature, I say!

look a bit odd, I hope they make some better ones!!

Bruce Banner looks like Garth Marenghi and Ironmans head looks like its photoshopped on a drawing of his suit.

Can't we have a classy Drew Struzan style art poster for once, besides these tacky 5 minute photoshop jobs?!?!
