Marvel Studios has unveiled a new pair of banners promoting the United Kingdoms release of Joss Whedon-directed “The Avengers.” The posters feature the same line-up as those unveiled in November, but offer a better look at the team and its main villain Loki through the removal the Avengers “A” emblem that had previously been overlaid on each character while providing different shots of Iron Man and Black Widow.
Directed by Joss Whedon, “The Avengers” finds the S.H.I.E.L.D. director assembling a team to pull Earth back from the brink of disaster as an unexpected enemy emerges to threaten the planet. Opening May 4, 2012, “The Avengers” also stars 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.
