Marvel Releases Two New Avengers Banners, We Note Some Details


So Marvel’s put out some more pretty banners where it looks like Thor and Tony Stark’s heads were pasted onto digitally painted versions of their costumes. In fact, these are all the same images as the ones they put out a month ago, just without the Avengers logo overlaid. Except for Iron Man, and…

Black Widow! Who gets to aim with her gun and not with her butt. We approve.

    Loki rules.

    I’m genuinely surprised. I was set to be all, “pfft, of course” when I clicked and it was a shot of her butt and/or cleavage, and then…it wasn’t. Wow.

    I love when you guys complain about female characters only getting to show their butts … when that is what your entire logo is based on. #sarcasm

    Seriously though, love the site, but it’s getting a little old to hear that complaint over and over when we’re basically seeing a rear end view of the Rosie the Riveter pose at the top of every page…

    Oh, LOKI!

    Still so in love with Loki.

    Widow and Hawkeye look like they’ve got a bead on the same target. ‘Tasha gets the drop on him, of course. ;)

    But the Mary Sue logo isn’t next to seven dudes who are clearly doing things other than displaying their butts to the audience. It was the disparity that made that poster really aggravating.

    I love it when companies actually seem to listen to people’s concerns.

    This, so much this, Sophie.

    I’m right there with you.

    Yeah her ass crack is totally – wait, no. There is no lovingly detailed skin-tight ass crack. It’s almost as if she’s presented as just a person, not a sex object.

    Want the complaint to go away? Then the problem should go away, not the complaint.

    Seriously happy about this change.

    I admit that I’ve read very little of the comics, but all these posters would have me believe that Loki is a member of the Avengers.  Shouldn’t Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Nick Fury be aiming at HIM?  Is there another bad guy in the movie that makes Loki seem not so bad?  

    Then again, if the Thor movie is to be believed, Loki was a meek, obedient younger brother who always played by the rules.

    “seem” is about right

    So much for those awesome painted posters of yestermonth. Now is the winter of our overshopped stars in front of black backgrounds. Booty-shot or no, I give ‘em a massive yawn.

    Hollywood, listen up…

    good story, good acting, good effects… it ain’t complicated.
