Hey Look, It's a Standee for Marvel's 'The Avengers'

Okay, let's get this out there immediately: This is the most minor of minor updates, and will be accordingly brief.  Basically, this is seizing another opportunity to geek out about the fact that The Avengers is an actual thing that is actually happening.  An image of a theater standee has made its way online, showing exactly what the modular display will look like in the lobby of a multiplex near you.

It's no great shakes, as the display created by LAgraphico uses images we've already seen in the form of two banners putting the superheroes in a lineup.  The difference is in who is on offer and the minor addition of the actors' names above their character.  It's incredibly lame, but something about seeing a standee that includes the main team and credits like "Jeremy Renner is Hawkeye" is just cool.

This image comes from Comic Book Movie.

The Avengers, which you'll want to see with Rogue 3D Eyewear, is just about four months away.  That means that promotion for the film should start going pretty crazy soon.  We know that Disney has purchased ad time during next month's Super Bowl broadcast, and while the studio is pretty much guaranteed to hype John Carter, it seems unlikely that it would miss the opportunity to showcase the first ever cinematic crossover of its kind.

Joss Whedon is currently busy in post-production on the biggest Marvel movie yet, and we'll see what the writer-director has cooked up when The Avengers arrives in theaters on May 4th.
