THE AVENGERS

Spinoff Online has posted a new "Avengers" poster featuring Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson. The poster was revealed yesterday in time for Gregg's 50th birthday.

Acura has launched a new "Avengers" S.H.I.E.L.D. tie-in website featuring training and dossiers of key Avengers initiative personnel. You also get to select a vehicle for the duration of the exercise with rewards for achieving certain objectives for a chance to win some cool S.H.I.E.L.D. gear. Acura has also released a trailer with a better look at the Leviathan robot.

Director Joss Whedon spoke to Comic Book Movie about wrapping the movie in New York City.

"I'm from New York, so it was great to be back and shoot all over the city. It just feels right to be ending in a place we’ve been replicating for so long. It was an amazing experience and I love every member of my cast. I’m less tired on day 92 then I was on day one and that is a tribute to the hard-working cast and crew of 'The Avengers.' If audiences enjoy this film as much as we did making it, then I think we're going to be in good shape."

Finally, here's the newest TV spot for Earth's Mightiest Movie featuring some new footage of the Hulk.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige spoke to Superhero Hype about the future of Marvel films following "The Avengers," the possibility of further expanding the Marvel movieverse and the motivation behind "The Avengers."

"Well, everyone gets an introduction into this movie as if they've never been in any other movie before," Feige told Superhero Hype. "That is the way the movie is. This is a 'Part 1.' This has been a rallying cry and one of the reasons we wanted Joss to come on board, is because he understood the characters and he understood the importance of the fact that... And frankly, he was not interested in doing a half-'Iron Man 3,' half-'Thor 2,' half-'Captain America 2,' half-'Hulk Whatever.' He was interested in doing 'The Avengers: Part 1.' So from the very first frame of the movie, this is 'Avengers: Part 1,' so all of the characters are introduced to the audience as if you've never seen them before. I guess we have the most leeway with Tony Stark who enters the movie, you could argue, like the celebrity that he is within that world, but also like the celebrity that he is to the moviegoing public as well. Other than that, they're all new characters coming into the story at certain points, and Hawkeye in the same way, right from the very open."

Directed by Joss Whedon and starring everybody. Opens May 4
