"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
For those underwhelmed by the Entertainment Weekly cover and Avengers cast headshots — the production photos were pretty decent, though, right? — ComingSoon has scans of photos from the new issue featuring Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Look for EW to release better-quality, if smaller, version of the stills shortly, likely followed by the “official-official” ones from Marvel.
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders and Stellan Skarsgård. It opens May 4, 2012.
