Marvel has released eight new character posters for Joss Whedon's The Avengers. These posters feature Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Scarlett Johansson all staring at something just slightly out of frame, as well as two posters of Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston looking right at you (so intense). Kind of a nice touch that they put a green light on Ruffalo for the Hulk reference (purple stretch pants would have been overselling it, I suppose). Also, Scarlett Johansson is sort of Scarlett Johanssoning in that poster, which is a nice cross-promotional tie-in. What, you mean those hacked cell phone pics weren't an advertisement for camera phones? Awkward.
All 8 posters after the jump. Movie opens May 4th. Here are some other numbers: 7, 18, 42, 69, 100.
