In the afterglow of The Avengers movie’s prosperous opening weekend, it’s easy to picture the team in their movieverse attire — especially since it’s inspired by the most recognizable components of their comic book costumes. Not every outfit donned by Earth’s Mightiest heroes fits into that design equation, however… in fact, some of their costumes from over the decades might be outright unrecognizable to casual moviegoers. In the spirit of celebrating some of the team’s endearingly goofiest comic book looks, we had Chris Haley (Let’s Be Friends Again, Captain American Idol) and colorist Daniel Butler cook up this alternate version of The Avengers poster featuring the Hulk’s Mr. Fixit look, Hawkeye’s circus duds, Iron Man’s skirt-enriched oldschool armor, Captain America and Thor’s overtly ’90s costumes, Black Widow’s flashy caped costume and, well… David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury. Celebrate the awesomeness after the cut.
Check out this awesome new clip featuring Loki and Nick Fury. I realize that it’s hard to escape the buzz surrounding Joss Whedon’s latest film ‘The Avengers,’ but why would you want to? What are you most looking forward to seeing when ‘The Avengers’ team up on May 4, 2012?
-Synopsis: Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.
It may feel a little early to start thinking about Halloween, but considering the recent release of new footage from The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man movies, the timing of Costume Craze’s recent blog posts revealing the film’s licensed costumes should suit fans just fine. The Avengers line consists of updated costumes for characters that got previous costumes based on The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger, joined by first timers at the licensed costume corral, Hawkeye and Nick Fury. Spidey’s Amazing suit is also brand new, and sports its signature texture, plus mechanical web-shooters (but no silver slippers). The costumes and accessories aren’t available for pre-order just yet, so there’s no pricing info. If you’ve shelled out for a licensed superhero costume before, though, I imagine you’ve got an idea of how much to budget come October. See what you think of the upcoming Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man movie Halloween costumes after the cut.
Well, here it is: The first official trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers has arrived online, and if you’ve seen any of the set videos or previously-released still images, then you’ve already got a sense of where this one is heading. The trailer teases a little bit of everything — from the explosive New York-set action centerpiece, which involves superheroes like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) battling something fierce on the streets of Manhattan, to all the quirky chit-chatter that we’d expect to see once you put all these giant egos in a room together — this thing looks like it will deliver on all cylinders. And hey, now Captain America has a machine gun. The only bummer we spot is no Incredible Hulk just yet. Marvel looks to be saving that money shot for a little later on.
Check it out below (or in HD over at Apple) and let us know what you think. More footage is expected to premiere this weekend at New York Comic-Con, but until then feast your eyes on a piece of the film you Marvel geeks have been anticipating for a long time.
