New <i>Avengers</i> Image Surfaces

The latest issue of Empire magazine -- the "Blockbuster Issue"! -- boasts a new image from Marvel's The Avengers that may please those fans complaining about the lack of shots of Chris Evans in his mask. On the flip side, it may confirm to others that the less we see of a masked Captain America, the better. Plus, hey, there's Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man,  Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Dr. Selvig. It opens May 4.

UPDATED: Marvel has now released the original hi-res image, which we've added below.
