The Avengers To Be Renamed Avengers Assemble In The UK – First Poster

In the sixties, there was a British TV series that also aired in the US, called The Avengers. A tongue-in-cheek spy action adventure series starring a bowler hatted pinstripe-suited dapper fellow and selected beauties in skintight leather as his foil.

They even made a rather poor film of the series a few years ago. Everyone tried to forget it.

Nevertheless, that original Avengers TV show still has a certain following in the UK and, it seems, in an attempt to avoid confusion,the upcoming Marvel Studio film The Avengers is to be renamed Avengers Assemble for the UK market. And here’s the new poster as proof…

 

Notice, Black Widow is no longer doing the brokeback pose either. And they really want to show off Robert Downey Jr’s face.

A new US comic of the same title will be coming out at the same time. How fortuitous.
