Would you let some weirdo paint “The First Avenger” on your body when you’re pretty much half naked? Well, French artist, Niho Ame pretty much found someone that allowed him to apply paint to bare skin and put together a pretty cool graffiti-style Captain America body art piece. Everything looks pretty kosher, but I have to ask. What the heck is that on his shield and what exactly is he smoking?

I’m not a fan of product placement in movies. It’s disruptive to the story and it’s pretty obvious to the viewer what exactly is going on. However, I do enjoy cross promotional advertisements and there is plenty for ‘The Avengers’. So far, Target has been on the spot with clever and whimsical ads for their goods and The Avengers. First, the “Little Avengers” TV promo spot and now these zany sculptures that spotlight the different heroes of the Avengers using a wide variety of merchandise found in Target. My favorite little piece has to be the York peppermint patties used in the Mjolnir sculpture. Well done Target. Well done.

Oh yeah… I enjoy any ‘Avengers’ news regardless how small or pointless it is. On the other hand, as you may know, I don’t dare post set spy photos and reserve my site for officially released images. Well, thankfully Marvel has released images of a cool new banner that will be hanging in your local cinema. I do have to say that the concept is simple, but these are some rad lookin’ banners. Also, from the looks of it, we might be seeing each Avenger as it’s very own poster as well. My only complaint would have to be the way the characters are posed. Other than Captain America, why does it seem that the photographer was posing our beloved Avengers to pose while sticking their necks out? Seems a bit odd. What do I know… My favorite has to be Black Widow and Loki. They look sexy as hell.

I woke up extra early today to make sure I was awake when the first trailer for ‘The Avengers’ dropped this morning and I don’t regret it at all! All we’ve been able to see so far were couple shitty set spy photos and a tasty teaser at the end of ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, but now, we have a clearer picture of what we can expect from The Avengers and I have to say that I’m fucking excited! The mix of characters and personalities in The Avengers is going to be dynamic and you can already see that between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers. Just from what I see from the trailer, it looks like Loki will be off the rails and will be a great villain for the newly assembled team. Also, from the looks of it, RDJ is the front man and will steal the show (but did you expect otherwise). While we would have loved to see more scenes showcasing heroes interacting with other heroes, we will just have to be patient and wait till May when the film comes out. Until then, just check out the trailer and make sure you have an extra set of underwear on hand.

It was bound to happen. Yoko Higuchi (AKA theresistancerises) put together a pretty clever fan-made trailer for Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers’ movie. Using various clips from trailers and movies such as, ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, ‘Iron Man 2′, ‘The Incredible Hulk’, and ‘Thor’ Yoko made a pretty awesome trailer. If I have never seen any of those clips, I would be pretty psyched about this movie. You can always rely on the fans to have too much time on their hands and make cool stuff like this.

Hit the jump to check out Yoko’s Avenger’s trailer. BTW, the audio is not that great.
