However since this is the UK version, Avengers is annoyingly called Avengers Assemble though.
Well, you gotta excuse the British for having something else called the Avengers that predates Marvel's super team.

Yeah, except that wasn't an issue here in the U.S. The 1998 Ralph Fiennes movie based on the British spy series was also called The Avengers and everyone is expected to know the difference. Although, in some circles, the new 2012 movie is called Marvel's The Avengers.

Regardless, it's not the first time that two completely different movies have shared the same title. Gladiator was the name for both a movie about ancient Roman gladiators starring Russell Crowe and a boxing movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr. Notorious was the name of both an Alfred Hitchcock thriller and a biopic about rapper Notorious B.I.G. Jack & Jill was the title of both a recent Adam Sandler comedy and a short-lived TV series on the WB starring Amanda Peet.
