In anticipation of The Avengers movie, Marvel has released a new piece of promotional artwork for their upcoming series of comics entitled The Road to The Avengers (via Bleeding Cool) which are made up of movie continuity stories for Iron Man, Captain America and the other members of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nothing really spectacular but we will munch on that rather than fuzzy set pictures.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers is helmed by Joss Whedon and will open in 3D on May 4th, 2012.
Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the super hero team up of a lifetime. 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.
