Someone snapped a photo of this promotional teaser image for Marvel’s upcoming epic superhero team-up movie, The Avengers. Apparently it was on display at the 2011 International Licensing Expo, so it’s likely not an official movie poster, but a marketing image that will probably end up on a cereal box or a trading card set. Still, it’s awesome to see all of the heroes gathered together like this, and if you notice, Cap sports a different uniform from his upcoming solo film. What do you think? The Avengers assemble on May 4, 2012.
Now this is just too awesome for words. The cast & crew of Captain America were all given this exclusive, limited-edition poster by artist Paola Rivera, that features Chris Evans in his Cap gear punching the mustache off of Hitler’s mug in an homage to Cap’s first comic book appearance in Captain America Comics #1. Sadly, this badass piece of art won’t be available to the public for purchase, but at least we have the Internet image to enjoy. Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22, which still feels like an eternity away…*sigh*.
I have not been bashful about my unbridled, slobbering passion when it comes to Captain America: The First Avenger. My expectations for this Marvel adaptation are sky-high, and these three new character posters for the film have only reinforced that enthusiasm. The images are the best looks we’ve had so far of Captain America, The Red Skull, and Sharon Carter. I would love to see character posters for Bucky and Dum Dum Dugan as well, but I’m sure they’ll be forthcoming. Click on the thumbnails for glorious hi-res versions! Captain America is in theaters on July 22 (Fuck you, Michael Bay, for stealing the July 4 release date for your shitty Transformers sequel!).
The Captain America : The First Avenger cast and crew are headed back to London for two weeks of re-shoots, despite the fact that the film is due for a wide theatrical release in about four months. Re-shoots on a Blockbuster Summer tentpole film aren’t uncommon, but when you factor in this disconcerting news with the fact that the studio still has not released full two-minute trailer for the film this late in the game, the outlook isn’t good. This marketing campaign for poor Cap is so inept, it makes the exposure Mars Needs Moms got look like a damned full-on Star Wars media blitz.
