The Avengers – Trailer for the 2012 movie

Marvel Comics - The AvengersWe’re a little late in getting there but we just saw Captain America (2011). Enjoyed it. A little subdued, we think (lots of explosions and running around isn’t necessarily the recipe for heart-pumping action in today’s cynical CGI-immune audience). At any rate, we stuck around to the end to see the trailer for The Avengers (2012). Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow (by the way, Scarlett Johannson as the Black Widow? Don’t see it, but we will have to get past it, one supposes), and Nick Fury (Sam Jackson is a favorite bad-ass, but casting him as Colonel Fury is a bit of revisionist history; it works in the present, but if the storyline has any continuity to the initial appearances of Captain America and other WWII heroes, it’s a stretch to visualize Sam Jackson as Sgt. Fury fighting in a war that pretty much excluded black soldiers from any significant action. ‘Nuf said.).  Nice to see Hulk again, too.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, and Amanda Righetti.

Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man”, “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Marvel’s “The Avengers” is the super hero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster.

Marvel’s The Avengers will open in theaters on May 4, 2012.

The trailer looks sweet. Enjoy.
