Before we know it it'll be May 4th, 2012 and we'll be heading to theaters to catch Marvel's next big movie, 'The Avengers.' We are sure that many of you absolutely cannot wait for the release of the film to see all of your favorite Marvel characters together on the big screen. However, if you can't wait, you may want to check out the 'Road to the Avengers' book which will compile all of Marvel's movie tie-in comics in one big book.

Marvel has already begun promotion for the upcoming release of the book by releasing a promotional shot of the book's cover. Check out the artistic interpretation of Marvel's Avengers movie line-up, and take a look at what Mark Ruffalo's Hulk might look like as well as a great shot of actor Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. While this is not the final cover, it is a great peek at what the actors may look like on the big screen. If you ever wondered what happened between Iron Man 1 and 2, then you may want to check out this book which, according to the official synopsis, will "fill in the blanks." The full size image as well as the official synopsis for the book below.

== TEASER ==

Gear up for the upcoming Avengers movie with these official in-movie continuity stories starring Avengers mainstays Iron Man, Captain America and the Agents S.H.I.E.L.D.! First, it's an expanded re-imagining of the original Iron Man, featuring bonus scenes not in the movie! Then, it's an all-new Iron Man adventure! What happened between the events of Iron Man and Iron Man 2? How did Tony Stark put a new chapter in the history books? And how did Iron Man break and rewrite all the rules? Then, it's Black Widow, Nick Fury and Agent Coulson in espionage action! Think you know S.H.I.E.L.D.? Check out what you DIDN'T see in the movies! And finally, it's the official comics prequel to the blockbuster Captain America! Steve Rogers is the inspiration for millions during the dark days of World War Two -- but where did he get his inspiration from? How did he meet his best friend, "Bucky" Barnes? And what set him on the path to becoming the First Avenger? Experience an all-new Cap adventure on the European battlefields.

Does the idea of a book compiling all the 'Avengers' movie tie-ins appeal to you as a comic reader? Will you be picking up 'Road to the Avengers'? What do you think of the Hulk?

I dont really like Movie tie in comic books but this does sound good.

sounds good!

Nice but wholly unnecessary in my opinion.  I say it should only be used for those who wanna have the work of filling in the blanks done for them.  As for me, I'll just remain intrigued and excited in my own way for the glorious date to come when Avengers comes out and just be waiting patiently till then.

I still can't get over them not having Wasp or Giant Man in it.  Has this been officially addressed anywhere that I might have missed or are they just omitting them for the sake of saving on some CGI silliness?

YES, YES, & the Hulk looks BAD-ASS! :)

I would indeed like more of the backstory that the movie world is going to use, and if the art looks as good as this it should be a visual feast as well.

@Avenging-X-Bolt:  Yeah maybe your right,little cameos would be nice.But in all honesty their powers aren't very appealing on the big screen,and IMO have never been all that special in the books. ... :/ 
 
Not hating,just stating the obvious.Yes they are the founding members and the core team,but hey it's a film adaption. Everything doesn't have to be to the T.That's why its called the movieverse.
 
Maybe if they could somehow make them look cooler.I mean in the first X-men movie i thought Toad would be lame AF as a villain,and he was actually bad ass,but then they essentially changed and tweaked his personality a bit and made him more gritter and laid back.So it's still a loose loose.You either changed some of the key elements to the characters personnel,or you let the character bomb on the silver screen.

please girl, we all know your not a hater. your viewpoint makes perfect sense. i though Toad actually did become a bit grittier  after his powers got enhanced at least that's what I've been lead to believe

Eh well eh...hulk is disappointing me. His face is to fat (under his chin) and he is way to short.....way to short.

#35 Posted by jordama (4106 posts) - - Show Bio
@Wolverine_chick13: It is just too much. I hate the fact that it has all the big names and then they throw in Hawkeye and Blackwidow. It just seems so awkward.  
 
It would be like a Justice league movie with Supes, Bats, Wonder woman, Green Lantern and Static.

@TheAvenger802: I agree. Hulk is way too short and looks fat.

@TheBlackHood: I'm not sure where I heard it but I believe they decided to wait to introduce any form of Hank Pym or Ant/ Giant man until Edgar Wright's Ant-Man comes about.  My guess with the wasp, is they figured why have her without Pym, but I could be wrong but I could have sworn I heard this somewhere.

Why does ironman have the circle in his chest instead of the triangle from the second movie.

Oh now I get it haha. Anyway I looked up the avengers trailer and he has the triangle so I guess it doesn't really matter.
