New 'Avengers' Photos Feature Fightin' Captain America and Thorby: Posted:
No, it's not May yet. I know you're counting down the days until "The Avengers" hits theaters, and yes, I am too. We just have to be patient.
In the meantime, there's a least a few more hi-res photos to hype of the big release. This new set of photos shows us Iron Man in flight, plus some shots of Captain America, played by Chris Evans, and Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, brawling in the streets of New York. Against enemies, of course, not against each other.
These pics are also the first clean shot we get of the two characters in their costumes, top to bottom. Of course they're a little bit re-done for this big new team-up movie, and Cap has definitely been modernized. Thor's armor has been slimmed down a little, but the cape is clearly still there.
Marvel is pursuing other promotional avenues as well with the Avengers, including a new Facebook game titled "Avengers Alliance," which allows players to utilize more than 100 characters in the Marvel universe, along with their own strategy, to fight off an invasion. Sounds like it might be pretty close in plot to the movie, except for the massive number of characters.
