Cool looking poster.  I don't follow comics, but how come the bow & arrow guy and the chick didn't have their own movie?  Does Nick Fury have special powers too ?  Looks like Ironman and Thor have good screen time...maybe?

That poster is awful.  The worst of Photoshop.  The characters aren't in scale with respect to one another.  That Hulk would be 30 feet tall.  And they're all looking in random directions.  Just really poor work.   :P

Hawkeye and Black Widow are more minor characters in the Marvel Universe.  I believe the actors are optioned for spin-off flicks, but the studio is waiting for Avengers to be a big hit first.  Nick Fury is a normal human - no powers.  Iron Man/Thor/Cap will certainly get the majority of the screen time.  Each Iron Man film made over $300 million domestic.  RDJ is the biggest draw here, and will get a lot of focus.

Ugh.  Not a fan of the poster, but I'm not really a poster guy.   :-\

Cool looking poster.  I don't follow comics, but how come the bow & arrow guy and the chick didn't have their own movie?  Does Nick Fury have special powers too ?  Looks like Ironman and Thor have good screen time...maybe?

Marvel's big names over the years have been Spiderman, Captain America, Wolverine, and the Hulk.  Iron Man and Thor have been big players in the comics, but lesser known by the public, so they needed movies to seed their origins.  Black Widow and Hawkeye are definitely next tier characters.  I think movies about each would have been cool, but they've kind of had their hands full with Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, & Hulk all leading to the Avengers flick.  You get a good taste for the Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and a sneak peak at Hawkeye in the Thor movie, so they've all been introduced at some point even if they don't have their own movie.  Like Hawk and Widow, Fury doesn't have any special powers...he's just a good secret agent.  I think in the comics he was a WWII hero and took some serum that allows him to age slower, but that's it.

We wish Scarlet had her own movie (or with me in the male lead) but she did have some pics running around.   ;)

I have some serious goosebumps.  Looks incredible.  I can't wait to see the Iron Man vs. Thor throwdown.

I really liked that trailer. I hope they don't cut this movie too short. Give me at least 2.5 hours of superhero goodness!!!

I didn't realize this was coming out in April?!?

EDIT: the trailer I saw on YouTube was the UK trailer and it said in theatres April 26.
