class=”alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-110309″ title=”The Avengers – Thor and Captain America” src=”×150.jpg” alt=”” width=”220″ height=”150″ />After the individual success of the Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and (to a somewhat lesser degree) Hulk films, Marvel’s Avengers are currently assembling under director Joss Whedon’s watchful eye for the eagerly anticipated superhero team-up movie to end all superhero team-up movies – and we’ve got a couple of new photos from the set to share with you.

The first image shows Whedon deep in conversation with Scarlett Johansson, who is reprising her role as Black Widow from last year’s Iron Man 2. The second, meanwhile, is a far more dynamic shot featuring the stars of this year’s two Marvel blockbusters – Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger – with both Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans returning to their roles as the God of Thunder and super-soldier Steve Rogers respectively. Most noticeably in this photo, we get a good look at Evans’ new Captain America costume, which updates the design from the 1940s version seen in the First Avenger to something a little more 21st century.

Marvel have been on something of a roll with their movies over the last few years and have done a good job of laying some solid groundwork that will lead into The Avengers. With around seven months to go before the film reaches cinemas, let’s hope the wait is worthwhile.
