Hitting theaters on May 4, 2012, The Avengers is one the most eagerly anticipated comic book films of all time. So, why not start the marketing campaign now?
The first trailer for The Avengers was just released, and while it doesn’t give away everything we’ll see – rumors still persist the Skrulls are involved – it certainly gives us a lot to look forward to. Besides seeing Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) all together, it’s nice to see that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will be doing more than just walking around saying cryptic things.
And, yes, that is indeed Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from the Thor film in there as well.
Considering how long Marvel has taken to work up to this film with numerous movies building the mythos, here’s hoping it pays off large. Plus, on a personal level, I would love to see director Joss Whedon just blow everyone out of the water with the work he does on this.
