POSTER: The Avengers

The countdown is on for a brand new trailer for “The Avengers” tomorrow, but for the moment we will have to make due with a new theatrical poster. It’s interesting, I have seen so much in the way of concept art, fan art, character banners etc. that I forget that we have only seen one official theatrical poster for the new superhero film and that was the teaser poster with the “A” logo.

As a fan of movie posters, I’m glad to report that Marvel Studios have now unveiled a brand new theatrical poster that shows off Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. My only small gripe would be that I wish they didn’t have to sell movie stars… I would like to have seen Iron Man with his helmet on and Captain America with his cowl. Oh and one last thing, can we put a winged helmet on Thor already!
