New Full-Length Avengers Trailer Arrives
Plus new, utterly HUGE villain revealed

29 February 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb

So here it is, the new Avengers trailer - and it is epic.

After an initially slow start, full of images we've already seen, fresh footage emerges, notably of The Hulk, the Quinjet and Captain America facing off against Thor. And Iron Man facing off against Thor. Thor is getting a lot of superheroes' backs up, it seems.

Oh, and the new bad guy? It would seem that he's revealed, and while nobody namechecks the massive mechanical winged beast at the end, we're guessing that that's Iron Man villain, Fin Fang Foom - or the Midgard Serpent who's occasionally disguised as same. And believe us, nobody saw that one coming.

Here's a closer look at the big guy for you...

...compared to a comic book version of Fin Fang Foom below.

And you were worried that the film's new name sounded silly? Needn't worry. Unless you think Fin Fang Foom sounds a bit naff, in which case, fair enough (but chances of him being addressed as such onscreen? Zero, we'd say).

That said, this new trailer has not revealed the plot much at all, but boasts so many money shots it doesn't matter. Watch it again and you'll see what we mean. Hulk! Thor getting angry! Um, Black Widow shooting her gun! Or for a truly exhaustive analysis, check out our Avengers trailer breakdown here.

To read more on what they're now calling Marvel Avengers Assemble in the UK, download the March issue of Empire's iPad edition from the App Store.

Marvel Avengers Assemble is out on April 26 in the UK.

RE: I've been slating this bad boy for months....
L: Ghidorah The trailer is a failure in my opinion. It start off as the next Transformers and that isn't good. There is a lack of a plot in there and basically send out the message this is an All Star Marvel movie but there is no why the team is assembled. ts a trailer!! What do you want the full blooming film! If anything I like this trailer because it doe'snt show plot points and it doe'snt have a run-time of about 10 minutes like most trailers do these days. More

RE: !!!
Everything I see looks great. Only slight concern would be the amount of destruction on display. Hopefully they're not sacrificing character for spectacle. More
