The 2011 Comic Con kicks off today, and for the next four days, San Diego’s convention center will be run amok with promos, teasers, posters, trailers, and every other form of marketing material imaginable for comic-book related movies, books, and shows, but mostly for movies, books, and shows that have little to do with comics. Our own Brian Prisco will be in attendance, but he will likely be skirting around the big events and hopefully providing coverage of panels and events more in line with the spirit of Comic Con. After all, most of the Hall H materials will be available for us to post before, simultaneously with, or soon thereafter they debut at Comic Con. Like this, the new teaser poster for next year’s Avengers movie, which debuts now because Marvel and The Avengers don’t actually have much of a presence this year at the convention because, in year’s past, they’ve learned their lesson: It doesn’t do much to market to the choir. Although, what little presence they do have, you can watch live via the website’s live stream.
Here it is. What do you think? Shiny is the only word that comes to mind.
