Sweet (Teaser) Trailer…'The Avengers'

Oh boy comic fans, today is a very special day. The teaser for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers just hit the web and it’s got fan boys (and girls) excited for what is probably the largest superhero movie ever created. Assembling the members one by one in semi-interweaving origin stories Marvel (and now Disney) has taken one helluva chance on the success of this ensemble film. I have a feeling that it’ll be awesome but you probably don’t need me to tell you that right? So until we get a full trailer, another and the endless TV spots, have a look at what Whedon will be bringing us next May.

Man, I know it’s just a teaser but it’s still pretty slick. Starting off a bit amateur and lack luster it quickly becomes pretty intriguing and bad ass dontcha think? Again, just a few well placed hints of the banter and spectacle to come this should still serve to get Avengers fever going. Starring an incredible cast which includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgard this looks to be THE movie of 2012 (well, aside from The Dark Knight Rises that is).

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, he, Marvel and Disney will bring The Avengers to theaters next Spring on May 4, 2012. I’m so in for this! Who’s with me??

  1. Colour me tickled pink… Or fushia… Or whatever colour I turn after hyperventilating from watching this trailer. Bring it on!

    • Agree totally Steve. Not being an Avengers fan, 6 films and 8 years (give or take) I’m so ready to see this…though for me TDKR will be the comic book film I’m most looking forward to in 2012.

      Side note, was it just me or did anyone else think it was a trailer for Transformers 4 until Sam Jackson showed up on screen?:P

  2. I’m invested in this being good at this point. At the very least I’m invested in the characters since I’ve seen all of the films, so I’m on-board basically no matter what.

    That said I’ve grown lukewarm on this footage– it doesn’t show off that much, and I have a feeling that some of the shots we see aren’t 100% finished. It’s only a teaser, and of course there’s plenty of time between now and release for Whedon to really show what his film is made of, so there’s that.

    But I cannot get past Tony’s line about the Earth and avenging it. That’s just flat-out terrible, and I bet it won’t play much better in context, either; it’s the sort of crap dialogue Whedon’s berserk adherents will defend to the death. Great, thanks Tony, I’m really happy that you’ll avenge Earth once you fail to protect it, but I can’t say that that does my smoking corpse any good.

    • Well this is just enough to get people’s attention and get the hype machine in gear. And they just finished principle photography so the reason we’re not seeing any fighting is because they’re still rendering the bad guys. Gonna be a long post process for sure.
