New Avengers image released online

The Avengers arrives in UK cinemas in just a matter of months, and Marvel have whetted our appetites still further with the release of a shiny new image featuring three of the team preparing for action.

The new shot shows Captain America striding purposefully towards the camera, flanked by SHIELD operatives Hawkeye and Black Widow. Pretty badass, we think you’ll agree.

It’s particularly nice to see Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson given some exposure in a promotional campaign that has naturally focused a lot of attention upon marquee names Thor, Hulk, Cap and Iron Man.

Just two more months to go before the film finally lands, which means all the speculation over cameos, storylines and the identity of Loki’s army will soon be coming to an end. And although we’re ridiculously excited by the final product, we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t miss the hype.

The Avengers
opens in the UK on 27 April 2012. After that, we’ll just have to wait for The Amazing Spider-Man . And then there’s The Dark Knight Rises ... it’s a big year for spandex, isn’t it?
