Now S.H.I.E.L.D. chief Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Special Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, finally get their share of the limelight in this US poster for AVENGERS ASSEMBLE.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
