'Avengers' Mondo Poster Series set to be released!!!

Paraphrased from the Huffington Post

Mondo the Alamo Drafthouse's collectible art boutique will be releasing a series of seven commissioned posters in honor of "The Avengers."

The first two posters that will be released are the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).

For Black Widow, Mondo got famed designer Olly Moss to create the minimalist poster. The striking red-black-and-white print features a profile of Johansson's face, with her red lips replaced with a gun. The tag line reads: "From Russia with Gun," a play on both the famed James Bond movie as well as Widow's origins. Moss has previously designed artwork for "Star Wars," "There Will Be Blood" and Marvel films "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger."
The Hawkeye poster was designed by Tom Whalen and features Hawkeye with his familiar bow.
Mondo -- which "focuses on bringing art back to movie posters" by working with noted artists -- recently opened a gallery space in Austin, TX. The posters are limited editions; 320 Black Widow prints were created, while Hawkeye only has 220. They go on sale on April 19 and 20, respectively.

But if you really want one of these posters you have to be quick and follow MondoNews on twitter - as they will be tweeting when the posters will be available for purchase!!!  Mondo posters have a reputation of selling out in seconds so good luck...
