New Avengers Poster Has Giant Hulk and Captain America

Did the marketing department go overboard or do The Hulk and Captain America actually grow 20 feet tall in The Avengers?

The new trailer for The Avengers hits tomorrow morning, and while you're sitting on the edge of your seat hoping we'll finally see some Skrull action (or maybe not) Marvel Studios has decided to wet your whistles with an all-new one-sheet for Joss Whedon's upcoming superhero bonanza. Once again it's the team in hero mode in an war-ravaged New York City street, but for some reason The Hulk and Captain America are looming over the city like giants in the background.

At first we thought The Hulk was going to suck down some Super Soldier serum and turn giant in the film, but we can't figure out why Cap is big enough to crush a car. Is it just us? Check it out: Iron Man and Thor in the foreground are big (makes sense), Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Black Widow behind them are smaller (makes sense), Captain America and The Hulk are behind them and huge. Can you figure it out? Take a look for yourself in the new poster.

[Update: One observant fan has already pointed out that Captain America is standing on a pile of debris. But while that would explain why he appears higher the rest of the cast, it doesn't explain why the frame of his body is larger than Black Widow's, who is clearly closer to the foreground.]
