THE AVENGERS Japanese Poster is “Deeply Unpleasant” | Geek Mundo

According to, the tagline in the poster above translates to “Hey Japan! This is a movie!” Well, no sh*t. I wasn’t sure that the Japanese would get that at all! [end sarcasm]. But seriously, one Japanese gentleman was quoted as saying that it’s “deeply unpleasant” and that he wouldn’t be going to see the movie. I don’t think they meant for it to be offensive, but I am pretty sure that whoever was behind marketing ‘The Avengers’ in Japan, should have gotten a linguist specialized in localization to do the translation.

What do you think? Offensive or not?
