avengers assemble

In deep space the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy come across Thanos who has control of a Cosmic Cube (okay, it’s not a real Cosmic Cube). Turns out the power in Thanos’ hands was made by the United States Government and could very well mean the end of everything as the Mad Titan expels Thor and the rest of the two teams into the Cancerverse before making his way to Earth.

The Avengers

Well done Joss Whedon. Ensemble casts aren’t always the easiest to deal with, especially when you’ve got stars of several franchises who all need to be showcased. Not only does the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer succeed in giving each hero their own moment to shine, but he crafts what is inarguably one of the best super-hero movies of all-time. I don’t know if The Avengers is going to be the best movie of the summer, but if it’s not I can’t wait to see what could possibly top it.

Why have a regular poster for The Avengers when you can have a LEGO Avengers poster?! Thanks to CoosCoos for the find!

So these new photos for The Avengers that have hit the interwebs over the last couple of days and all I can think is this is the best Marvel Studios could make these characters look? Don’t get me wrong, I’m still looking forward to seeing the movie but…

Although it’s still giving away nothing about the threat, other than the presence of Loki (Tom Hiddleston), I’ve got to say I’m pretty positive on this second trailer for this summer’s big budget super-hero flick The Avengers. Sure Captain America’s (Chris Evans) costume still doesn’t quite look right, and, more importantly, the action looks far too Michael Bay for my tastes (and even includes a giant Depticon-ish looking monstrosity in the final shot), but that shot with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) bringing down his Hammer on Captain America’s shield? Yeah, that looks pretty cool (and a hellova lot better than that awful new poster). Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett JohanssonCobie SmuldersMark Ruffalo, and Samuel L. Jackson also star. The fun stars everywhere on May 4th.

Seriously? Take a look at this and tell me it doesn’t remind you of countless examples of photoshopped characters, all staring in different directions, and always against random destruction in the background, that has become a staple of Justice League since the New 52 reboot.

You may remember the Han Solo Carbonite Desk we shared with you back in 2008. Well it seems Tom Spina Designs is attempting to do one better – at least for Avengers fans. The same customer commissioned the custom home theater and office furniture company to build him a home for his collection of Avengers movie memorabilia. This is the result.

It looks like this is our first look at the early poster art for next summer’s The Avengers. Thoughts?

Here’s a pretty pic from the set of The Avengers, which believe it or not has finally started shooting. After the jump you’ll also find a letter from director Joss Whedon to the fans.

Steve Rogers puts together a new team of Avengers. Not bad for a first issue. We get Kang, Silly Putty from the future (heh), awkward conversations and reunions, and the feel of something new and important starting here. However, the threat of kids from the future is far from the slamdunk opening arc I hoped, and Wonder Man‘s refusal to join is forced and hamfisted. Gee, I “wonder” if that’s going to be an important? Sigh. It may not be all I hoped for, or living up to the promise of the Heroic Age, but it’s definitely worth a look.
