The Avengers assemble to defend NYC in explosive new poster

The Avengers have assembled—again. This time they're taking it to the streets with their latest movie poster. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, the Hulk, Hawkeye and Nick Fury are ready for war.

In this poster, a lot of damage has been done. The city has been destroyed and the Avengers are up against an unseen threat. With photos like this, we love to investigate the background for clues about the plot.

If you look closely, there's a skyscraper for Stark Industries that's about to be toppled over. Quick, Hulk, do something!

Here's the official synopsis:

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures Marvel's The Avengers—the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
