Surprise! Corporations want to sell you a lot of stuff, and Marvel is no exception.

<– begin cynicism here –>

Big announcements in this news story from SuperHeroHype.  There is going to be a lot of merchandise for sale helping to push the Avengers movie.  Shocker.  A movie based upon a number of characters who already participate in successful toy and book lines is going to be pushing more toys and books.  It is like they are trying to make money on this movie.  Next thing they will tell us that the movie tickets will not be free.

What’s that?  You are going to pay attention to the success or failure of the marketing initiative and adjust future initiatives accordingly?  That sounds like WAY too much work.

<– end cynicism here –>

Truth be told, I’m getting myself a Hawkeye figure as soon as humanly possible.
