New Avengers Teaser Trailer
Marvel's supergroup assemble!

11 October 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Disney

submit to reddit

You've seen a few bits and pieces from The Avengers kicking about the internet in the last few weeks, what with new pictures being released and of course that sneak peek at the end of Captain America. But here's a fresh new teaser trailer that offers the best look yet at Marvel's superhero supergroup.

The story, of course, sees life on Earth threatened and Nick Fury putting a team together comprising pretty much every Marvel hero from the last few years: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk (a new one) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner, briefly glimpsed in Thor). Their mission? Save everybody. So just another day, really.

 

Judging by this trailer, the group doesn't coalesce straight away, with some tension between the glib Tony Stark and more serious Steve Rogers, but we're sure they'll all end up bosom buds.

The Avengers stars (deep breath) Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg and Gwyneth Paltrow, and will hit screens in the UK on April 27 next year. Cannot wait.

I haven't read all the comments, so I apologise if this has already been mentioned, but a lot of the comments I have read seem to be bashing Whedon and doubting his ability to handle this property and I just wonder why when all evidence is to the contrary. 1) ensemble cast - Joss is the master of this, just look at any of his oeuvre. 2) Joss has written for the Marvel verse, he understands comics and he understands Marvel and the Avengers 3) Joss has proved he can handle an FX movie with Serenit More

As someone who has been reading Avengers since 1975, I'm going to go against the grain here and say that I was underwhelmed by the trailer. I will still see the movie since it's a MARVEL STUDIO production and they are much better than the Fox Abattoirs and Phony Sony offerings. I felt the trailer lacked substance, the story seems tired and predictable. Nothing new to see here except for the players. I'm also not a fan of the over rated "Ultimates" series which this film seems to More

RE: New Avengers Teaser Trailer
I agree with whoever said that this film is way more interesting due to Whedon's involvement. To have him write and direct the superhero movie to end all superhero movies is an inspired and perfect choice. The trailer does look a bit transformer and explosiony but it IS a trailer and I bet the studio heads, as per usual, think this is what people want to see so have downplayed the more of the interesting elements in favour of some bangs and crashes. Whedon's dialogue is probably going to be way More

Why doesn't Empire start a new magazine dedicated to Comics? You froth at the mouth anticipating these movies using every opportunity to hype them up and then they usually turn out to be steaming piles of nonsense. It's not as if they're ever likely to be profound works of art - or even classic blockbusters to be watched for generations - so why does Empire fall for it every time? More

It'll be interesting to see what sort of dynamic the group has. Particularly among Stark, Thor and Rogers.

I can imagine after that "genius playboy billionaire philanthropist" remark, Rogers will just say he doesn't measure up to Howard Stark or something.

Valid points made about Loki, etc - but the point of Loki was never that he was a huge physical threat, more that he he was a planner, an intellectual danger.

Joss will save the day
it will be good- imagine all the good bits from capt america, thor, iron man etc. all rolled together with some buffy/angel/serenity humanity and humour. Its a winner and may be enough so to let Joss wheedon make more movies- serenity 2! More

RE: New Avengers Teaser Trailer
A few avengers feature in this..... A little off topic I know but thought I'd be a bit cheeky e recently released this music video as an unsigned band. It's a superhero/comic book inspired idea. The whole video was self produced, the set was built from scratch, all the props and costumes, of which there are plenty are made by one guy! and in my opinion are quite something. Check out that black spider-man suit and the old school Hulk transformation. I hope you like it................ More

Can. Not. Wait!
Agree with the comment by Overmind re; hard rock music in trailers, and in Marvel films... The worst thing about Iron Man 2 was the AC/DC soundtrack! However, that gripe aside, I am SO looking forward to this!!! it's gonna clean up at the box office! And yes - In Joss we Trust! More

Good Lord.
I am sick...sick of these superhero movies. They are redundant and stupid. What is worse is that they are usually categorized in the science fiction genre. This is not sci-fi. Sci-fi is thought provoking. 2001, Blade Runner and Solyaris are science fiction. Monkeys in suits are not. and I've always wondered.... correct me if I am wrong but haven't these comics existed for a long time? As in since the 1930s and 40s? So why is it that it is only now that we get bombarded with a Superhero film More

But certainly there were aspects in both that were fairly bad. ote] I do think next year with these two films we will be seeing the end of this era of superhero movies. Will be interesting to see where they go from here. er.... Man of Steel in 2013 perhaps ? More

Here's something for all the people complaining/whinging/naysaying. THIS IS THE FUCKING TEASER TRAILER. As for the "Loki as a villain has been done", first i refer you to my previous statement, and second, THAT IS The Avenger's origin, it was Loki dicking around that bought the various heroes together.

It would be nice to see some truly great villians in it from the Marvel comics canon...Sheme they can't toss in a Spidey one. What about Dracula? Ok, maybe a far cry...But at this stage it's 'any ideas's at least an idea'... More

L: excelsior Make no mistake, ladies and gentlemen, this movie will own the Summer 2012. Seeing Earth's Mightiest Heroes duking it out with a Skrull army, led by the Master of Mischief, makes my inner eight year old do back flips. The Thor/Cap fight (i'm almost certain) is nothing of the sort....one of them is a Skrull imposter!! sp; k Knight Rises will own 2012 - it will shit on this from a very great height. More

RE:
I don't see the problem with using the best of the villains from the feeder films as the bad guy. I really enjoyed the trailer which was unexpected as Thor is the only one of the other's I had much time for. It'll be interesting to see Downey Jr's character without a shit scriptwriter, certainly. Possible Spoiler n the add on bit at the end of Thor they'd already pretty much revealed that, hadn't they? More
