Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have pampered us with awesome posters and banners for The Avengers movie this past month, with some expected criticism here and there. However, the recently-released German poster for the much-anticipated film, via Prosieben.at, will surely make you appreciate the U.S. theatrical posters. Mostly using outdated character promos, a decent look at Captain America & Black Widow is offered.

While the above poster mainly differs from the previous ones by not having a gritty backdrop, explosions and debris; which do you prefer?



Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, & directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble on May 4, 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013!; and “Thor 2” on November 15, 2013.

I'm really into Hawkeye's costume now. At first I wished they would attempt more of a mask. But now the whole militaristic look feels really good to me

Beautiful!

So all I see is a bunch of movie star that refuse to wear something covering their faces, how dull. I'm sure Ironman always goes into battle without his helmet. They all must have thought, well if Thor can do it so can we.
Really dumb.

hawkeye looks like bland shit

cap needs to open up those ears

thor needs a [frick]in helmet once in a while

besides that im cool
SotNatt - 3/27/2012, 8:33 PM
It annoys me, still, to see Iron Man where Captain America should, rightfully, be, but I understand the marketing ploy.
NeoBaggins - 3/27/2012, 8:36 PM
This Maskless Iron Man front and center shit is lame as [frick]. I just want to see the movie now. I'm sick of these dumb ass recycled promos.

at least its not as bad as Fantastic Four. Thing who struggles with his appearance and in finding a cure for some reason found one in FF1 and alien body switching in FF2 just so you could see the actor's face.

and dont forget Doctor Doom, his whole face is supposed to be scarred, yet in both movies he merely had a scratch on his face. and talk about bad acting. Worse villain ever.

So I forgive the Avengers for sometimes removing their helmets as it would interfere during a battle.

Ha! With that hand, Tony Stark should be a Gynecologist.
Phlegmbot - 3/27/2012, 8:43 PM
@Firgielicious The stance is weird, yes, but if you think like he's "getting ready for butt sex" that sounds like YOUR issue.
Ironnick - 3/27/2012, 8:44 PM
So far the marketing for this movie has been pretty bland. I hope they kick it up a couple notches in April.
PartyHard - 3/27/2012, 8:48 PM
Looks like shit.
Spidey91 - 3/27/2012, 8:49 PM
there's something about some movie posters that I don't understand...why can't all the characters be looking in the SAME direction? IM looking at the audience,Cap and Widow at the left,Hawkeye to the right.
not saying this poster is bad,far from it,just something that kinda bugs me.
JDUKE25 - 3/27/2012, 8:51 PM
ugh.........same ole pics just photoshopped to make a "different" poster. How fascinating...
JorLBola - 3/27/2012, 8:54 PM
That doesn't look very... "official" :)
JDUKE25 - 3/27/2012, 8:55 PM
@Spidey91 you should make an Avengers "Brady Bunch" poster where they're looking different directions lol :P
95 - 3/27/2012, 9:02 PM
Effective in displaying that this is THE superhero team up of a lifetime. But... it lacks the apocalyptic atmospheric background on the US version.
sahin86 - 3/27/2012, 9:05 PM
lame!!!
meatbag - 3/27/2012, 9:05 PM
Agreed, I prefer the American Photoshopped crap to the German Photoshopped crap.
Cartoon22 - 3/27/2012, 9:12 PM
this is lame! wtf Marvel we could make a better one in a few minutes
Cartoon22 - 3/27/2012, 9:17 PM
regardless MAY 4= EPIC arrives ...this movie is gonna blow the box office! CANT WAIT
Spidey91 - 3/27/2012, 9:17 PM
@JDUKE25
that's stretching it lol :P

just saying,a poster where they're all looking up all heroic and sh*t would be cool. it would be kind of generic,yes,but at least would give it some sense of unity and focus.
DarkArts - 3/27/2012, 9:23 PM
I think they shouldve made this a 2 parter like Kill Bill, Twilight and the Potter movies did, so each character/actor could really have plenty of time. It looks TOO BIG to be confined in one movie.
Niuhll - 3/27/2012, 9:29 PM
They're not wearing their masks because this is Marketing, they want to sell the film, why would they cover up RDJ's face? Or anybody's face?
Mrcool210 - 3/27/2012, 9:29 PM
so this isnt fan made?
liveman789 - 3/27/2012, 9:31 PM
UHHHHHHH am I the only one that noticed that Thor is holdins TWO HAMMERS? LMAO
liveman789 - 3/27/2012, 9:31 PM
^holding*
hartley07 - 3/27/2012, 9:32 PM
ew, looks like a cob job from some 13 year old in photoshop.
CoolantTech - 3/27/2012, 9:32 PM
Yeah that would be really weird to see Cap front and center on this one .. its German for [frick]'s sake so its ok, 'this time' only, and yeah.. Ironman needs a helmet, they all do.
Spidey91 - 3/27/2012, 9:37 PM
@liveman789

HOLY SH*T! you're right O_____o

that means...Thor is f*cking invincible in the movie! :P
Doctorwho22 - 3/27/2012, 9:43 PM
GOOD GOD! THOR HAS TWO HAMMERS NOW?!?!?! SHIT IS GONNA GET REAL! LOLOLOL
JDUKE25 - 3/27/2012, 9:43 PM
@liveman LMAO!!
DioFoRio - 3/27/2012, 9:52 PM
scheisse
LoudNoises - 3/27/2012, 10:00 PM
I really think that Cap needs to be front and center in these posters. I get why they have Ironman up front because of RDJ, but it just looks wrong having Cap always in the background. They better not give him the Cyclops treatment in this movie. I'll bet that Whendon wanted to keep the film more in Captain America POV but was pressured by the studio to not take away from RDJ's screen time because he has a larger draw in terms of ticket sales than Evans.
Cartoon22 - 3/27/2012, 10:05 PM
wow Thor has two hammers thats a fail who ever made the poster
liveman789 - 3/27/2012, 10:07 PM
@Cartoon22

Yeah, a fail for whoever tries to mess with Thor holding two hammers...
NeoBaggins - 3/27/2012, 10:13 PM
"They're not wearing their masks because this is Marketing, they want to sell the film, why would they cover up RDJ's face? Or anybody's face?"

Because EVERYONE knows who they are already. Seeing IRON MAN is way more exciting than seeing RDJ's old ass head poking out of the armor. Luckily, not wearing the helmet much for Cap works out for the better since his helmet looks so [frick]ed up. THOR looks better without his plastic hat as well. But Iron Man's mask is not an accessory; it's part of the damn suit.

And THOR holding two hammers indicates that terrible photoshop artist are on the case world wide when it comes to this promotion.
gambgel - 3/27/2012, 10:14 PM
that is fanmade, right?
Niuhll - 3/27/2012, 10:28 PM
@Neobaggins Yeah it's more exciting, but they don't need to advertise to us, we're money in the bank as far as they care. By taking off the masks and showing their faces they may hit demographics that would normally have turned this film down.

When Thor came out at my cinema we had the first couple of days the die hard fans, the rest of the week people (mainly guys) coming to see an action film and the following week a lot of woman (mainly 30's upwards) coming to see Chris Hemsworth take his shirt off, then some would come back with other friends.

And maybe everyone knows who they are, but they're playing it safe, thats why it's 'Avengers Assemble' in the UK, they're playing safe, they don't wanna lose a penny if its there to be taken.
