    5 ⭐ This book had designs and sets that were used for the Avengers. It also had descriptions of the character's costumes and the changes in the movies. I really enjoyed this book. Liked how they showed the different sets and tried to describe almost everything that was in the movie. Love the iconic shit. Makes me get goosebumps Everytime I see it. Loved that they put descriptions in for the characters and showed how their costumes evolved through the films.

    There are three important things I learned from this thick, 300-something page book released by Marvel. One. That the events in Louis Letterier's The Incredible Hulk film happened at the same time as the events in Iron Man 2 and Thor. Two. The design for most things in Joss Whedon's record-breaking tentpole The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble, if you're in the UK) - like the helicarrier and everyone's costumes - are taken from The Ultimates comic series by Marvel. Three. The fish-like creatures of There are three important things I learned from this thick, 300-something page book released by Marvel. One.

Three. The fish-like creatures of the Chitauri's that wreaked havoc in Manhattan during the epic final battle in the movie are not in fact called "Chitauri fish thingie", as I have referred to them before, but instead are called Leviathans. You would think that with the absolutely overdose of information that the Internet vomited on The Avengers the last six months, preceding, during and well after the movie's release, the aforementioned points would be very obvious already. But either I didn't dig deep enough through the geeky Marvel fan forums or the information was simply not available, I never found out about this until until this book came out and I got my hands on it. The point is, if you're crazy about The Avengers film and you wish to know how they conceptualized the film, this book will be useful. It may come across as rather gimmicky at first glance but the tome is more than just a picture book that shows the characters from the movie. It tells you the origins of the ideas upon which Whedon's The Avengers was built, with sketches, drawings and schemes from the film's conceptual artists. The book starts with a helpful Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline (marked BIM and AIM, as in "Before Iron Man" and "After Iron Man") that clues us clueless souls as the real timeline for the events that happaned in the five pre-Avengers movies. After that, it introduces the team members, including with back stories that will enlighten Marvel newbies on each Avenger's past. And then, if certain things made you geek out when you saw them on screen, like Iron Man's flying Mark VII suit, the book explains to you how they planned them. Likewise for the three-way "Shakespeare in the park" pissing contest between Iron Man, Thor and Captain America in their (as Loki sits back with the proverbial popcorn on the edge of a cliff) - this one comes with a storyboard in the book. You definitely can't blame Marvel for not being thorough. The weight and the price are rather substantial, but instead of collection limited edition The Avengers Real-D 3D glasses (that one of the local cinema chains here sell), this book seems to be the much better investment. Seeing as The Avengers has taken the entire universe - Asgard, Midgard and everything else in between and around - by storm, there's something to be said about owning an official 'guidebook' that will keep you company until the sequels come out in the near future. And if you have cash to spare, consider assembling the previous Marvel 'Art of the Movie' books from Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. Not as thick, but just as informative and certainly entertaining.

    I don't know why it has that slippy box thing, but the art book sure had some very shiny art in it.

    (More pictures on my blog) Just like other Marvel movie art books before, this is big and thick. In fact, at 272 pages, it's thicker than The Art of Captain America and The Art of Thor which are both at 240 pages each. The cover looks great and it's actually a slipcase. Almost all aspects of the movie are covered. There are the Avengers themselves with their new costume designs, Loki, The Chitauri, flying leviathans and other characters like soldiers, Nick Fury, etc. The art is great and these are (More pictures on my blog) Just like other Marvel movie art books before, this is big and thick.

Almost all aspects of the movie are covered. There are the Avengers themselves with their new costume designs, Loki, The Chitauri, flying leviathans and other characters like soldiers, Nick Fury, etc. The art is great and these are all printed big. The characters are mainly drawn by Andy Park and Charlie Wen. Most look very much like the actors. The Iron Man design is, as usual, amazing. There are also a few pages of Hulk art which are new obviously since there are no Hulk movie art books. Many locations, props and vehicles are featured as concept art. You'll see Bruce Banner's hideout home, Tony Stark's tower a breakdown of the technology that suit him into Iron Man or un-suit him, the warehouse where Black Widow was held, the Helicarrier and its interiors and even the tunnel Loki escaped in. The props are all sort of gadgetry shown in the movie, stuff like Hawkeye's bow, other weaponry, a sequence of Tony Stark suiting up into Man VII in mid-air. There is a lot to see because some pictures are filled with details. The visuals are spectacular. I think the layout is slightly chaotic because there's a lot going on with so many characters and big set pieces. The content is presented chronologically as they appear in the movie. The writeup is extensive and there's a lot to read about various part of the movies. This will probably be very interesting to those who want to find out how The Avengers differs in areas as compared to the comics. This is an awesome art book and informative movie companion. Highly recommended.

    I ordered this art book mainly as a way to continue to enjoy the Avengers film after seeing it. I rarely buy art books, but couldn't resist this one as a companion to the movie. I expected it to be mostly character designs, with pictures from the film complementing the artist renderings. Happily, it is much more than that, and truly is a journey through the film. There is a lot of concept art for props, vehicles, and general world-building, in addition to character design.

There is a lot of concept art for props, vehicles, and general world-building, in addition to character design. The book has a lot to offer for any film enthusiast to enjoy. The section on the design of the helicarrier is particularly well done, as the book goes into depth on how they wanted to base it in reality while still being true to the comic origin. Physics, visual appeal, set design, and more were all taken into account. The exposition (text) enhances the art and photos rather than taking away from them (as I have noticed in other art books). The text incorporates quotes from the actors and filmmakers, as well as tidbits of Marvel comic history as it impacted the film, and more. I found I enjoyed reading the book as much as looking at the gorgeous imagery. The production values for the book are top notch. The book comes in a hard slipcase with the cover art printed onto it, without dust jacket, as issued. The pages are thick and glossy, and the book is well laid out. The designers were careful not to have images broken across pages (one of my biggest gripes with art books), and there's a nice balance of screen shots from the film to contrast against the artist images. This turns out to be a great book for film fans and art fans alike. And I fully intend to get "The Art of Marvel Studios", which collects the art books from the previous films in one set. Highly recommended!

Now, the art is brilliant. It's always interesting to see how the ideas of the artists designs went onto the big screen and where the ideas came from, and with this begin so closely related to Marvel Comics, the inspiration to be loyal to Marvel's roots and yet making the designs fit in the modern world... There were one or two sections that I wish were shorter (the Helicarrier section was over 20 pages and talking about the return of the Incredible Hulk was, while interesting, took a good ten pages), but if you are a movie buff or a huge fan of The Avengers movie (or maybe you're a fan of Joss Wheldon), this is perfect for you!

    This is the best of the Marvel art books so far, with the runner-up being Captain America: The Art of Captain America - The First Avenger. As with the Cap book, I do wish there were more photos and screengrabs of the finished designs to compare against the concepts, but this desire is balanced out by the inclusion of such things as the timeline fitting all the movies together.

(I intend to edit the movies together in chronological order, so that was helpful. Even if you aren't crazy like me, it's still pretty interesting to see that they've fit all the stories together.) As with many art books, you do lose the occasional piece to the book's center valley, but overall the presentation is superb. Some of the artwork is jaw-droppingly amazing, and my inner fanboy uttered "That is so COOL!" many times. The keyframe art pieces in particular are spectacular. See some of them here: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansite... If you're a fan of the films and like some background info with your concept art, you can't go wrong with this tome.

    Strong 3 stars. In the spirit of other books released in this "series" (The Art of Iron Man, Iron Man: The Art of Iron Man 2, Thor: The Art of Thor the Movie, Captain America: The Art of Captain America - The First Avenger), this doesn't differ from the ones I've already read.

    Absolutely geektastic! Honestly, if you are interested in how a movie is created from conceptual art then every page of this book will keep you fascinated. It is even more enthralling if you are a huge fan of the Marvel Comics movies because to see it come alive step by step is really freaking cool. I mean, there is no other way to describe it, it’s just freaking cool. Every last detail down to how many straps should be on Hawkeye’s arm is scrutinized and the art work of the keyframes is remarka Absolutely geektastic!

The book is full of quotes from Whedon, the actors, and most importantly, the crew that works in the visual department. This is a coffee table book that is not only pretty to look at but gives you the skinny on what really went on behind the scenes of one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.

    A great book! So visual stimulating! Only complaint I have is that I would have liked to have seen full 360 degree sketches of the final costumes. However, that is coming from someone who works in that area, haha.
