Exclusive new ‘Avengers’ character banners

It's been a month since the first trailer for 'The Avengers' hit the web and the world went nuts. Since then we've had nothing... until now. Feast your eyes on these exclusive character banners!

Some great design work but still no sign of Hulk unfortunately. Bruce Banner (who looks like Garth Marenghi for fans of obscure TV references) has a dash of green to him however, just to make sure everyone knows exactly what he can and will become.

It's all looking peachy right now for Joss Whedon's superhero mash-up, which stars (deep breath) Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Hiddleston.

Better than these posters is the confirmation that the UK will be seeing the finished film on April 27th next year, a FULL WEEK before the US.
