Sign Petition Against Renaming THE AVENGERS in the UK

Sign Petition Against Renaming THE AVENGERS in the UK

I believe it is a massive mistake to rename "The Avengers" to "Avengers Assemble" in the UK release. If you feel the same, please sign my petition.



SIGN PETITION HERE!

Some of you may or may not be aware that it has recently been announced that in the UK 'The Avengers' has a new title...the aforementioned 'Avengers Assemble'

Here is Disney's statement as told to HeyUGuys:

"We have changed the title of “Marvel The Avengers” to “Marvel Avengers Assemble” This has been done merely to differentiate the movie from the popular 1960’s British television show, The Avengers."

Well quite frankly I believe this is abit of a slap in the face. Yes the titles are the same and yes there has already been a piss poor hollywood version of the british TV show 'The Avengers' made in 1998...

But that was 14 years ago and I very highly doubt anyone who used to watch the tv show 'The Avengers' back in the swinging 60's will be going to see Marvel's Avengers...and I doubt anyone remembers the 1998 rendition...

This is clear proof that Disney does not understand it's target audience...the box office sales in the UK for Marvel studios films; Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, Thor & Captain America: First Avenger, have grossed hundreds of millions of pounds, meaning you'd find it hard to find anyone in the UK that does not know the difference between Marvels The Avengers & The 'Avengers'...

Therefore in a cry of defiance I have started an online petition in the hope that should enough signatories be obtain we can make ourselves heard and this un-necessary name change be undone...

Whether you share my opinions or not does not matter...but if you do then please sign my petition and help my cause...anyone is welcome you do not have to be a UK resident to sign it...

This maybe a foolish endeavour...but we shall see...

Thank you for reading...
