Marvel has premiered the much-anticipated trailer for “The Avengers,” the Joss Whedon – directed epic adventure that brings together the major players of the Marvel Movie universe. Preview from the CBR News team. The two-minute teaser establishes the movie’s premise, with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury laying out a vision for “a group of remarkable people” to “fight the battle we never could.” In this case that battle is with Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who says, “You were made to be ruled.
Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark gets the best lines, whether it’s bumping heads with Chris Evans’ Captain America, complimenting Mark Rufallo’s Bruce Banner on his ability to lose control, or solemnly vowing, “If we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned sure we’ll avenge it.”
“The Avengers,” which opens May 4, 2012, also stars Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders and Stellan Skarsgård. From what we have seen it is well done and should hold the interest of Marvel fan’s around the world. I expect the first weekend to do very well at the box office. With Zak Penn and Joss Whedon (director) involved in the screenplay it should be good, should have all the ingrediants that made Marvel number one in the comic world. The powerful acting should come across well with Joss Whedon as director. This may be the most anticipated movie of 2012 by far. Definitely not one to miss. See you at the movies on this one. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
