Avengers - ET Behind the Scenes Clip & A New Poster

Here's an Entertainment Tonight set visit/cast feature to enjoy while waiting for the new Avengers 
trailer on Wednesday 2/29. Also a much less enjoyable New Poster.

This poster is such a mess visually... I almost didn't post it. 
Weird body positions, lazy photoshoping, overly busy, horrible distracting composition. 
It looks like they tried to cram everything cool from the last trailer into a poster...epic fail.

Prometheus Viral Promo - Peter Weyland TED Talk 2023

Director Ridley Scott may have given comments recently regarding how Guy Pearce's character Peter Weyland ties Prometheus into the "Alien-verse". These reports were followed promptly by the relase of this clever viral clip on the real TED website of Weyland giving a TED Talk in the future of 2023. 
And this corporate site - weylandindustries.com - also appears to be part of the viral campaign.
