The Avengers (2012) – Trailer

It’s finally arrived, the trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers! I have to say it doesn’t necessarily look bad, but having all those heroes together does make it seem a little fake. Blending these mythologies, no matter how cleverly done (and I’m a Joss Whedon fan as well), may simply be undoable on any believable scale. We talked earlier about some set pics that looked like the heroes were fans dressed up for comic-con (the EW Avenger pics did look better though) and this trailer doesn’t really help those thoughts. Also interesting that the trailer heavily features Robert Downey Jr, seeing as Iron Man is the top earner here it’s no surprise. I wonder if that plays into the movie at all, is Iron Man featured in the film more than the others? No look at the baddies here, just a simple voice-over, so there is more to look forward to when real trailers hit later. The Avengers is set to release May 4, 2012 and stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and is directed by Joss Whedon.
