The Avengers Mondo Posters New Avengers Behind the Scenes Featurette & Stylish Mondo Posters

In a twist of (not-so-sweet) irony, international audiences will be treated to Marvel’s The Avengers starting next week, while us here in the… well, US, have to wait seven more days to indulge in our superhero movie fantasy.

However, one thing we can all look forward to is the end of the Disney/Marvel’s promotional bombardment. While we’ve enjoyed all the trailersimagesfeaturettesclips,  interviewsTV spots and early reviews, at this point all the footage and story details are starting to feel like overkill… But so much so that we won’t post today’s new featurette  and the stylish new Avengers Mondo posters featuring S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘master assassins’ Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).

The featurette (as you can see) covers some of the same ground as previous behind-the-scenes peeks – what with Scarlett Johansson and director Joss Whedon describing the challenge of bringing disparate personalities into one cohesive team, and Robert Downey Jr.’s assurance that the film “should be” their finest hour. Of course, we hear a bit more and see a bit more footage than before – but again, at this point, that’s not necessarily a good thing. Other than that, it’s the same old towing of the Marvel company line: “Avengers is going to be awesome!”

Below you’ll find the first of what are going to be several stylistic Avengers posters from Mondo Tees. The Widow poster is probably a lot more appealing to cinephiles with its minimalist style and head nod to the James Bond universe (“From Russia with Guns”), but comic book fans will likely be more receptive of the Hawkeye poster – which is reminiscent of the work of comic book artist Salvador Larroca:

Which die-hard fan will be the first to plaster their wall with all of the official Avengers movie posters and banners – and the entire collection of Mondo posters? Will it be you?

The Avengers hits theaters overseas starting on April 25th (lucky ducks); it will hit theaters stateside on May 4, 2012.

  1. I kinda hate Mondo. Their work is amazing but they only put out a few of each, and they’re sold & gone before they’re even announced or publicized.

    • They have a business plan that works. Make a product extremely sought after (regardless of quality) by only producing a limited number of them. I own a few Mondo posters (They Live and the AMAZING Back to the Future set, and recently their poster book). A friend of mine actually tries to purchase every single thing they sell. The things he does get in on, he instantly makes a large profit on through ebay. I buy things that I want to frame and keep because I adore the movie and love the artwork.

      They do actually announce every single thing they sell. They release information about what is going on sale through twitter, their website and email newsletter at least a day ahead of time. The sale does go up at a random time, but again, is announced on Twitter.

      The Black Widow poster sold out in 30 seconds. $45 from Mondo. Selling from $200 to $400 on ebay right now (45 active auctions for the product).

      It’s interesting to say the least.

      • I know all this stuff..I follow their social network announcements and get in early on everything, but have never been able to buy the thing I wanted from them.

  2. DC take notes….for The Justice league.

    • Good point, but first let’s have Green lantern #2 & The Flash movies. And also maybe a Dr. Fate/Hourman team-up? Please?!

      • OMG yeah Dr.Fate and Hourman woohoo. One of my oldest DC comics was the two of them and the original Lantern fighting Solomon Grundy. The other day the Atom even popped in my head during an Antman discussion – he’s another classic character I haven’t heard mentioned for movies.

  3. its too much of the same, enuff of this snoozefest and either show something else or sitback and let the film speak for itself.

  4. there are some great reviews from the premier over at rottentomatoes.com but be warned that a couple of them are slightly spoilerish, and even having read them, it’s not anything we havent picked up from the trailers already, and it doesnt get me any less excited to see this. 2 more weeks! and yes Theavenger, we all know you only have to wait 1 week…lol (it’s all good!)

  5. *whispers*

    (typo in the first paragraph)

  6. *end of whispering*

  7. Come on May 4th! (And I hate you guys who get to see it a week before me) :)

  8. Reviews are up, Marvel Studios “AVENGERS” IS THE GREATEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE OF ALL TIME!!! Not only the greatest comic book movie but an overall great movie in general. 100%fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes so far, between 4.5-5 stars all around by critics, fans, and general movie audience all together!!!!!!!!!!! For the sheer daunting task and difficulty of putting a movie like this together and how wrong and unbalanced it could have gone, the movie deserves a perfect rating.

    • Unfortunately it won’t get it. There is now 1 rotten review, and the stars are between 3 and 4.5 out of 5.

      • Eh, there will be lots more reviews after the U.S. release, and the more reviews you have, the less 1 rotten review counts. 1 rotten review doesn’t kill the film’s chance for a 4.5-5 rating.

  9. Hell yeah…!!’ can’t wait till
    friday April 27 so I can watch “the Avengers..”

  10. In a twist of (not-so-sweet) irony, international audiences will be treated to Marvel’s
