CHICAGO – A new set of photos, released today, shows each of the heroes of “The Avengers” in a tight close up. The excitement of having six different heroes in one movie made for six different photos, each showing one of the suited up heroes.

The new photos, released by Entertainment Weekly, gives a look at Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Black Widow (who we have already seen) as well as the first look at Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye.

The four heroes we have already seen in film will once again be played by the actor who originally portrayed them; Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.

Of course, the big name actors don’t end there: Samuel L. Jackson will once again play Nick Fury, Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her role as Pepper Potts, and Tom Hiddleston will play the villain Loki for a second time.

The film, which is set to premiere May 4, 2012, was written and directed by cult phenom Joss Whedon, the man behind the series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and its movie “Serenity,” and the TV series “Angel.”

      CHICAGO – From villain to anti-hero to homoerotic fan fiction icon, Loki has traveled a long way from the greasy-haired megalomaniac we have come to love. For most of his cinematic character development, Loki has been a foil to Thor’s massive himbo (n.: a very attractive, often beefy male who isn’t the brightest bulb, but is still able to shine because of his good-natured attitude and respect for women. Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
