Lego and Marvel prepare Avengers movie posters for launch day

Select movie locations across the nation will get a special treat next month when The Avengers hits theaters, Lego and Marvel partnered to create a promo poster using Legos to recreate the main characters from the movie. It’s pretty awesome but supplies are limited so I’d start asking around at your theaters to find out who will be supporting it.
