Everyday I'm Assemblin'

A new Avengers poster was revealed today. It's pretty dang cool aside from Captain America and Iron Man are missing their masks so people can recognize the actors playing them.

In the U.K. the movie has been retitled Avengers Assemble to differentiate it from the classic 60's TV show (and it's own ill fated movie, but who would do that?).

There's a rumor generated from this YouTube video of the LEGO booth at Toy Fair that suggest the alien race in the movie will be the Ord, from Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men. I've only read the first storyarc of that comic (which ends with Wolverine's fist in the Ord leader's mouth) but I think the Ord would be an interesting choice and the Whedon connection makes it sound plausible. However if they can't use the Skrulls because of the Fantastic Four connection, why would the Ord be any different? They're X-Men characters which is also a Fox franchise.

Maybe we'll learn more tomorrow, when a new trailer is set to debut. I'm expecting an expanded version of the Super Bowl spot.
