The seventh and final Comic-Con promo poster for “The Avengers” has finally found its way online, completing the full cast reveal of Marvel Studios’ upcoming superhero team-up film.

The studio apparently chose to save the biggest character for last, as the new poster puts the spotlight on Hulk, the green goliath with an affinity for smashing anything and everything in his sight. While Hulk has been seen on the big screen already in not one but two recent films — 2003’s “Hulk” starring Eric Bana and 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” starring Edward Norton — this is our first look at the version of character that will appear in “Avengers.”

Announced almost exactly a year ago at 2010’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, Mark Ruffalo will take on the role of Dr. Bruce Banner, Hulk’s alter ego, in the upcoming film. However, unlike his predecessors in the role, Ruffalo has indicated that this version of the Hulk will actually have features mapped to his own face and body.

(Honestly, I’m not sure I see much of Ruffalo’s face in the new Hulk art, but the first footage could offer more similarities.)

Along with providing the last piece of “Avengers” promo art from the show, the new poster also completes the wide, banner-style image that can be created from all seven posters. Offering a nice look at the full roster of the superhero team, the banner is the sort of thing likely to send a chill down the spines of hardcore fans.

Previously, we got a look at the Hawkeye and Black Widow art, as well as the posters for Iron Man and Captain America, Thor, and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury, Maria Hill, and Phil Coulson.

“The Avengers” is scheduled to hit theaters May 4, 2012.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.


It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
