New US Avengers Posters Arrive
Well, hello there Maria Hill...

13 March 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb

Over in America, they're still calling Marvel Avengers Assemble by its original title, The Avengers, which means that their new posters say just that: "The Avengers".

This also means there's more space for Cap to get up close and personal with the poster viewer, and even a little room for Black Widow to show off just how well her hair conditioner is working these days. Nick Fury also gets in on the action, taking pride of place in his own one-sheet, pointing at gun at someone or something no doubt very, very evil.

Just beside Nick appears series newbie Maria Hill - played by How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders - a SHIELD agent who's, well, really rather lovely-looking. She also seems to be entirely nonplussed by Mr. Fury's leather-jacket-on-fire problem, but as he's her boss, she probably doesn't want to point out his fashion faux pas in public. Or at all, really. 

Anyway, enough of that. Take a look at the posters below, then tell us whether you miss the days when Avengers Assemble was called The Avengers. Ah, February...

Marvel Avengers Assemble is out in the UK on April 26, whereas America gets their avenge on a little later, on May 4. Makes a nice change, eh?
