After massive amounts of set photos and video from Joss Whedon’s The Avengers leaking online, Disney and Marvel have apparently decided to start releasing official images from the movie. After last week’s image, set photos, and head-shots, we now have five new images from the movie plus the previously-released image, all in hi-res. There’s also a new official set photo in the bunch. All in all, the images from the movie look pretty good. I love the shot of Steve Rogers considering his updated outfit, and apparently Black Widow’s job is to just look bad-ass by firing two guns at once or calmly turning her back to explosions.
Hit the jump for the images. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson. The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Avengers:
Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the super hero team up of a lifetime. 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.
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Marvel’s The Avengers” brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time.
