With 10 months to go, Marvel is wasting no time getting us all worked up for the upcoming film of The Avengers. Considering the amount of time and money the company has put into prepping for this film, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Released over the course of the San Diego Comic-Con was a series of seven character posters that would finally form one large image that showed you some of the history of each character as well as hints of what we’ll see in the new film. (Is that a Helicarrier I see behind Hawkeye and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents?)
While I normally don’t care for films with too many characters in them, especially in the comic book genre, but the only new introductions out of all those characters I listed that are new to the series are Cobie Smulders of How I Met Your Mother as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. (Yes, Hawkeye appeared in Thor for a sum total of an eye blink, I don’t count it.) If Marvel was going to try to introduce each character in this film I would go out of mind, but seeing as the characters have had their own films to prepare for this particular project, this concept works fine for me.
May 2012 can’t get here fast enough for me.
