Even though it has been 95 percent fan pics and videos so far, there has certainly been a whole heap of media released for The Avengers. Now there are new official promo pics and even a magazine cover released for the film from Entertainment Weekly. Throw in character details for Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Hulk and you’ve got a whole ton of new stuff to take in.
Check out the EW magazine cover along with promo pics for The Avengers
Along with these pics, there are quotes and other such things from director Joss Whedon and some of the stars including Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and the others. Downey Jr. actually spoke about his first meeting with Whedon and let him know Iron Man needed to be shown first.
“I said, ‘I need to be in the opening sequence. I don’t know what you’re thinking, but Tony needs to drive this thing.’ He was like, ‘Okay, let’s try that.’ We tried it and it didn’t work, because this is a different sort of thing, the story and the idea and the theme is the theme, and everybody is just an arm of the octopus. But what was I like? As usual, just f**king aggressive and hurtful; whatever. The usual.”
As these comments now show, The Avengers is going to be a team film and not centered on any one character or actor. Hemsworth though does reveal how Thor takes things in the film a tad differently then the rest.
“I think [Thor’s] motivation is much more of a personal one, in the sense that it’s his brother that is stirring things up. Whereas everyone else, it’s some bad guy who they’ve gotta take down. It’s a different approach for me, or for Thor. He’s constantly having to battle the greater good and what he should do vs. … it’s his little brother there.”
