These screenshots of footage from filming done for the title sequence were shared on Twitter.

Obviously parts of it were used in both the sequences that we got (the live action and animated ones).

The poster who shared them suggested that they may have been from the rumoured but never confirmed sequence that included the word "NEW" done as graffiti. Quite a few people claimed to have remembered this sequence.

Maybe it is a real thing after all..?



Here's hoping it will end up on the Network Releasing Blu-ray boxset.

I'm sure this is on one of the DVD of The New Avengers I have, I've definitely seen these images before.

Possibly. Considering that for a long time people thought the 1975 Laurent Perrier champagne commercial was a myth or no longer existed as footage (as it is we only have a blurry video copy). Then again, the infamous 20-minute version of The Strange Case of the Missing Corpse seems to have been a myth.

There are two copies of the commercial on YouTube. One in French, which looks rather blurry, and the other one dubbed in Spanish that has a slightly better picture quality. Itís the same footage in both of them, itís just the language that varies.

Regarding the TNA titles, I always liked the live action version better than the grey background one. I donít think graffiti would have worked well, not even in TNA.

I'm sure I've seen the photos of Joanna lying in the circle somewhere before....

The graffiti thing doesn't fit the seventies. Could have perfectly fitted in the 80s or 90s. My guess would be that people are remembering an 80s or 90s promo for reruns.

The graffiti was in the original artwork for the series and survives on some of the paperwork (script covers, call sheets).

It was like this (without the line to the left of new, that's just there to push it in):

The "graffiti titles" were on some of the episodes CBS aired in the late 70's.
