Marvel has released the films first official teaser poster for Joss Whedon‘s anticipated superhero movie “The Avengers“. The action adventure featuring Marvel heroes like Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johannsson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Captain America (Chris Evans), plus the villainous Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
The poster is beyond teasing, offering only the word “Assemble” and a giant “A” as a hint as to what it’s even advertising; those unfamiliar with the Marvel superteam probably could be convinced that it’s for some sort of futuristic update on The Scarlet Letter featuring a robot Hester Prynne. But of course, we’ve got a year of promotions like these to come before the film itself arrives, with all its impossible-to-live-up-to expectations, so maybe savor this early anticipation.
The Avengers is shooting now, for a May 4th, 2012 release.
