Your eyes do not deceive you, "Avengers" fans. You are indeed looking at Earth's mightiest redesign in the image above you. Italian comic book illustrator Denis Medri has come down with the same "Avengers" fever that's hitting movie lovers all across the globe, and he's channeling that energy in a very positive way with these fantasy "Avengers" redesigns, which are way too awesome for words.
Check out another "Avengers" redesign and a whole lot more in today's edition of Tights!
» In addition to the Captain America, Thor and Iron Man designs seen above, here's how Medri re-imagined Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye for a fantasy universe.
» In casting news, rumors are flying that Dwayne Johnson might take on the lead role in "Lobo," based on a mysterious tweet he unleashed last week. Bleeding Cool has more on the situation, in addition to a "Thor 2" update.
» Sadly, a promising rumor posted at Comic Book Movie looks to be false. An old report suggested that a "Ms. Marvel" movie "is ready to go," according to Marvel CCO Joe Quesada, but that report has turned out to be false. Resume your pie-in-the-sky dream casting for now, I suppose.
» Also from the good lads at CBM comes word that "Men in Black" director Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks with Warner Bros. to helm a comic book movie, based on "a comic that hasn't been around since the '60s." Let the speculation begin!
» Finally, if you want more of Medri's amazingly imaginative redesigns, you could do worse than checking out his greaser-era Batman, seen at Project Rooftop!
