New The Avengers Photo Puts Focus on Walking
02.22.12 by Ryan
Marvel, in an effort to keep their tent pole production at the forefront of the movie-going public's mind, has been trickling out stills of late for its upcoming adaptation of The Avengers. But at the risk of sounding like a thankless fan, the latest photo is a little underwhelming. Explosions? Villains threatening heroes? Do or die conundrums? Nope, just a couple superheroes taking a stroll.
The Avengers, the culmination of several solo superhero movies, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger will open this May 4th, and the most recent photo concentrates on the flight-less characters of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as they walk through what looks like either S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters or the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier.
The Avengers will see the Marvel Comics superheroes face off against the evil Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after being assembled by S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The cast also includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk, Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill, and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig. Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) wrote and directed the movie.
