New Avengers Footage & Loads Of Posters15.03.12 # Trailers # 3 Comments
As cities begin to sell out of tickets for midnight screenings of The Avengers, Marvel has unveiled new character posters for Nick Fury’s supergroup, and a Japanese trailer contains a ton of new footage.
Like the main poster for the movie, these aren’t especially cool or exciting, but this movie isn’t really relying on the posters to generate excitement. This might do it though –
Meanwhile, director Joss Whedon has been talking and says he aimed to give The Avengers a real sense of danger, where any of the characters could be killed (or maimed?):
“I find superhero movies to be a little too neat. And when you have Earth’s mightiest heroes — like Thor, you know Thor! — you have to put them in a situation that makes you feel like they’re not all going to make it. The climax of this movie isn’t one where you go, ‘Oh yes, there’s the Avengers, good for them, bye!'” When it all hits, it hits hard.”
The Avengers stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson and hits cinemas in May.
