While we await live-action shots from The Avengers (currently wrapping up its initial filming), a bunch of promo art has hit the web over the past week, giving us a better look at all our favorite Marvel heroes look like together in the same spot. These two new shots -- courtesy of SpiderMedia.ru (via Coming Soon) give us our first taste of the film's villain, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), as well as a group shot of The Avengers standing on top of what looks to be a pretty wrecked New York City street.
It's that NYC image that recalls the filming they were doing in Cleveland, and sort of ties it together in that, yes, all of the Avengers will be squaring off against evil forces in one epic battle on the streets of New York. Check out both images below and let us know what you think. The Avengers hits theaters on May 4th, 2012.
