It’s not long now, so the photos and videos for The Avengers will be coming thick and fast. Marvel has just released six new behind the scenes photos via Yahoo! Movies, while anti-virus company Norton has a video unfortunately titled “Assemble the Ultimate Protection“. The latter sounds like there is a set of Avengers condoms they have been just dying to market. If you can’t be Robert Downey Jr, you can be in Robert Downey Jr. We also imagine the Hulk ones will glow in the dark, and consumers will love calling their protected areas “Thor’s Mighty Hammer”.
Directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel’s The Avengers is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series The Avengers, first published in 1963. The super team of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk (and some other folk) must band together to stop the world from being all destroyed and such. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson.
The Avengers is released in Australia on 25 April 2012 from Disney. It will be released in the US a week later on 4 May 2012.
