LEGO continues its superhero miniature revolution with a pitch-perfect homage to “The Avengers” movie poster. Revealed by the fine folks at MTV Splash Page, the poster showcases the LEGO minifigures of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury in a miniature smorgasbord of awesome. LEGO sets based on “The Avengers” will hit later this year based on some of the set pieces and events of Earth’s Mightiest Movie including “Captain America’s Avenging Cycle,” “Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape,” “Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout” and “Quinjet Arial Battle.” Although the poster references LEGO.com/avengers, there is nothing currently at that address as of the writing of this article. For now, check out the side-by-side comparison of the LEGO version and original poster.
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill and Stellan SkarsgÃ¥rd as Dr. Selvig. The film opens May 4.
