Jeremy Renner, poised to cash in n his Oscar-nominated turn in The Hurt Locker, had a brief cameo in Thor. This poster is not exactly flattering.
Mark Ruffalo might be the unlikeliest superhero actor working today, with the art-house idol playing The Incredible Hulk. It's all mo-cap, so the jury's out, but this image looks great.
Thor made his big-screen debut this May, with Chris Hemsworth playing the God of Thunder. We liked his portrayal and the film, but we're still itching for him to get back that awesome winged helmet of his.
Chris Evans stars as America's Super Soldier, coming off his box-office dominating debut as The First Avenger, which did a great job of laying the groundwork for The Avengers.
Robert Downey Jr will of course be back for a third turn as Iron Man. Dominic Cooper played his father, Howard Starke, in Captain America.
When Scarlett Johansson first took the role of Black Widow, it seemed like a lark for the up-and-comer, but with the current state of her career, she needs the role.
And Samuel L. Jackson is finally getting the star treatment he wants for playing Nick Fury of SHIELD. Now, whether they give him his own film is another question.
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, arrives May 4, 2012.
