Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Marvel has debuted international banners for The Avengers featuring largely familiar images of Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor, Nick Fury, Loki and Bruce Banner.
The versions released last month showed the characters partially obscured behind the Avengers logo, but this time they’re free to move around in the dark void of poster world. It’s interesting to note that all the poses have remained the same except for Iron Man and Black Widow, who have taken very similar, weapons-ready stances.
Directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and a host of others, The Avengers will continue Marvel’s movie universe continuity established in Iron Man and its sequel, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor and Incredible Hulk. It opens May 4.
