So after the Avenger’s hero character poster release campaign, came the long-awaited arrival of the third and final trailer. We’ve already seen the posters for Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, Nick Fury, Hawkeye, and Captain America. The timing of the release had many thinking that it would lead up to the final reveal of The Vision. But after the release of the final trailer, we had to settle for a mere tease. We probably won’t get to see him in action until the film is released, but there is still hope that he will appear in a character poster like his fellow heroes.

Each of the character posters that have been released are just that, character posters. At first it looked as though these posters were pieces of a larger set due to the shared background, but now we know that is not true. However, now that more character posters are being released, and the first two posters to be revealed since the trailer dropped are for Scarlet Witch and QuickSilver. Hit the jump to check out them both out as well as the ones that have already been released.

Written and Directed by Joss Whedon
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson
Walt Disney Video
Release Date: September 25, 2012

Despite appearing to have died at the end of Thor the God of Thunder’s treacherous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has arrived on Earth from exile somewhere in the galaxy to steal the Tesseract, a cosmic weapon capable of unleashing an awesome and destructive power if fallen into the wrong hands, from the possession of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In the process Loki uses his scepter to take over the minds of agent Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and physicist Dr. Eric Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) so that they may assist him in his plans for world domination. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has no other option but the “Avengers Initiative”, a plan that would bring together the world’s most powerful super-beings as one fighting force to combat Loki’s threat.

Kat Dennings Gets Expanded Role In ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Kat Dennings In Thor

Thor: The Dark World wouldn’t be as much fun of a sequel without Kat Dennings, who starred in Thor as a political science student who gets misplaced with the wrong internship and caught up in the battle of the cosmos along with Natalie Portman and Stellen Skarsgard. Her quick wit and sarcasm provided some great humor for the movie and now she is officially signed on to appear in the sequel, which is expected to start shooting this fall.

As to the reason why it might have taken so long to get her signed on, well, it’s because of her commitment to the hit CBS comedy, Two Broke Girls. According to Deadline, all of that has been worked out. She even gets an expanded role in the sequel, which means she could do more than just mispronounce Mjolnir on multiple occasions. She certainly deserves to do more than just spew out a few witty one-liners. So we’ll see what she can do when the time comes.

Could Malekith The Accursed Be The Villain In ‘Thor: The Dark World’?

Malekith the Accursed

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige promised us that the villain in Thor: The Dark World would be big. It wasn’t clear if he meant physically big or just big in terms of recognition, but the rumor that is going around tells us that it is the latter (and/or former depending on how you perceive the character), and that it would have fit into Mads Mikkelsen’s physique, had he stayed on to play the villain.

According to an interview with stuntman James Grogan, we could be seeing elves in Thor: The Dark World. And, though just speculation, that could mean we’ll be seeing Malekith the Accursed as the villain.

Avengers movie posterThe Avengers
Directed by Joss Whedon
Written by Joss Whedon and Zak Penn
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård, Gwyneth Paltrow and Samuel L. Jackson
Marvel Studios/Paramount Pictures
Release Date: May 4, 2012

“And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes were united against a common threat! On that day The Avengers were born — to fight foes no single hero could withstand!”

Scenario: 27-year-old Adam Frazier (aka Famous Monster) gains access to a time machine and travels back to 1990, where a 6-year-old Adam is lying on the floor playing with his collection of ToyBiz Marvel Superheroes (complete with carrying case).

Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Incredible Hulk have been forced to put aside their differences and work together to defeat the devastating (and educated) tag-team of Dr. Doom and Dr. Octopus, who are attempting to take over my mother’s kitchen – a strategic move that will no doubt leave scuff marks on the linoleum floor.

Watch The Epic New Trailer For ‘The Avengers’

The Avengers

After the muted and mixed response that greeted yesterday’s unveiling of the film’s new poster, Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have released the second and most likely final trailer for The Avengers.

You can watch it here below.

Now this is more like it. I had great hope that the new trailer would be the eyeball-roasting blast of awesomeness it really has to be, and needless to say that hope was not misplaced. Any and all doubts I may have had about this movie have officially been chucked out the window where they will not be caught in mid-air by the Hulk.

‘The Avengers’ Gets A Star-Studded Superheroic New Poster

The Avengers

Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have unleashed the final theatrical poster for their upcoming superhero team feature The Avengers, loaded with star quality and credits and the works. You can check it out here below.

It’s not the most exciting image Marvel could have used for the poster heralding the film that has been in the works ever since Samuel L. Jackson stepped out of the shadows during the end credits scene in the first Iron Man, but it works well. I think it’s just a shame that the studio couldn’t have rounded up the entire cast at the same time for a poster photo shoot rather than put together this somewhat sloppily composed image.

Girl with the Dragon TattooThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Directed by David Fincher
Written by Steven Zallian
Starring Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard, Steven Berkoff, Robin Wright, Goran Visnjic, Joely Richardson
Release Date: December 20, 2011

Crusading journalist and magazine publisher Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) has just taken a major hit to his finances and reputation in a libel suit brought against him by billionaire businessman Hans-Erik Wennerström (Ulf Friberg). As he’s trying to figure out his next move while keeping his personal life afloat, Mikael is summoned by retired industrialist Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) to his palatial estate on an island in the Swedish countryside. The older gentleman offers the disgraced Blomkvist a golden opportunity that will replenish his bank account and restore his reputation as an honest reporter if he will use his investigative skills to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Vanger’s great-niece Harriet, whom he believes was murdered four decades ago. Blomkvist is reluctant to take on such a task, but when Vanger also offers to give him the crucial evidence he needs to bring Wennerström to justice, the embattled writer accepts the job.
