During Super Bow XLVI a new trailer for The Avengers movie aired, followed by the extended version of the same trailer online. New footage from the trailer included our first look [I believe] of the entire team together, in full get up, including the Hulk.
First impressions inside the article…
Iron Man appears to have some new gear, very cool.
Thor giving Captain America the ol’ “strength and honor” help up, also very cool.
Thor landing on the wing of a jet, awesome.
Loki’s “army” jumping out of something. Still not sure who exactly they are; bleegingcool.com makes a good argument and President of Marvel Studios production Kevin Feige has confirmed that it’s not Skrulls or aliens. They don’t look like robots either. Below is a closer look:
Hawkeye jumping out of a building shooting arrows at the camera, look familiar?
The spiraling shot of the entire team together may have been the highlight of my day (well, the Patriots did lose). I think any comic fan would be hard pressed not to jump up and down like a school girl during that shot. (Although, after having watched it a few times, I’m not sure how much that little gun Black Widow is loading will do. Guess the same could be said for Hawkeye.)
Am I the only one who thinks Captain America’s helmet is a little…off? I’m not sure exactly why, but I’m not loving it.
Tony Start to Loki, “We have a Hulk.” Corny? Yup. Made me pump my fist? Yup.
And finally the trailer ends with the Hulk punching a spaceship.
Growing up a DC fan I can’t help but be more excited for The Dark Knight Rises and even Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi horror in Prometheus has me counting down the days until June 8 but if The Avengers is going to be two hours of superhero’s landing on jets, punching spaceships, and fighting mysterious armies, then I’d imagine it’s going to be one of the best times I’ve ever had in a theater.
As if you needed reminding, May 4th people.
