The Avengers: New Poster, New Name

Marvel has just released the new UK poster for The Avengers, which has now had a slight name change in the UK to Marvel Avengers Assemble (presumably in honour of the fact that they’ve been assembled via Photoshop). The new US posters seem to suggest that in the States it’ll simply be called Marvel Avengers.

Here’s the official press release:

“Marvel Studios presents Marvel Avengers Assemble—the superhero 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 Avengers Assemble 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 Avengers Assemble hits UK cinemas on 26 April 2012.
