Even with all the casting, set photos, posters and more, comic fans still might not be able to process that Marvel is actually making an Avengers movie. We’re actually going to see Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye all on screen at once, fighting the forces of evil. Now you can see it with your own two eyes.
Marvel has just released the teaser trailer for Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson. Check it out after the jump.
“If we can’t save the world, we can damn sure avenge it.” Tell me that didn’t give you chills.
It’s a very strong teaser with some clever dialogue and hints at huge action. The thing I was most excited for – the interaction between the characters – is also, wisely, a big part of it. The Steve Rodgers/Tony Stark exchange is hilarious, Stark complimenting Bruce Banner is funny and all of the huge explosions that were shot on location (and captured by spy cameras) look infinitely better than they did on YouTube. I’m excited. What about you?
