The Avengers (2012): New Movie Poster Features War Machine and Ant-Man?


Not sure how legit the following movie poster is, but someone posted it on Google+ saying that the artist was hired to create this for the new Avengers movie coming out.

One of my teachers from college was hired to create this poster for the new Avengers movie that is coming out. It is mixed media, pencil, ink and a little airbrush. I need to get him on G+, he has so much to offer to this creative community! Get off Facebook Mike Apice and get on GOOGLE+!

The reason it's questionable is that we see War Machine as well as Ant-Man?!

I know it's been said that War Machine is not going to be in the movie, on more than one occassion I think.

Update: More than a few people have commented that standing next to Nick Fury could very well be The Wasp, as the costume does bear a resemblance. However it just might be Maria Hill, played by Cobie Smulders, unless...

Update #2: A full color image (below) of this came out almost two years ago, said to be by "the_mad_butcher." This appeared right when Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger art was being leaked. So this could be early concept art - or not.

According to the info above, this is by Mike Apice, who has worked for Disney in the past.

Regardless, looks pretty awesome.
