'The Avengers' trailer shows invading aliens and the Hulk in action (+video)(Read article summary)
'The Avengers' trailer shows more of the film's plot of the superheroes facing off against Thor's brother Loki.
Believe it or not, just over two months are now left in the countdown to the release of Marvelâ€™s The Avengers. The comic book movie studio has been especially busy cranking up the buzz surrounding its estimated $300 million superhero juggernaut over the last week, to help heighten anticipation for todayâ€™s unveiling of a second official trailer.
The newÂ Avengers trailer is now online and unlike previous trailers, it basically dives head-first into the plot of the film. While a good deal of the mystery surrounding Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his powerful alien armyÂ remains in place,Â the stakes have now been made clear and the stage is set for Earthâ€™s most powerful superheroes to unite in its defense.
Overall, thereâ€™s a lot to admire in this newÂ AvengersÂ footage as far as sheer action spectacle and the scale of everything is concerned. Between sequences of Hulk rescuing a downed Iron Man and vast alien vessels laying ruin to metropolitan landscapes (among other noteworthy moments) it looks like Marvelâ€™s money has been well spent. More so, this is the first trailer to suggest thatÂ The AvengersÂ may truly be worth the price of admission for either a 3D and/or IMAX screening, based on some of the more elaborate shots and action sequences teased here.
Rather than divulge the secrets of Lokiâ€™s forcesÂ justÂ yet, this newÂ AvengersÂ trailer insteadÂ highlights the clashing of personalities and difficult team dynamic between the various members of the Avengers Initiative. Chalk up another early point for writer/director Joss Whedon, as he appears to have recognized that the conflicts between the various superheroes who make up The Avengers are (in many respects) just as important as the exterior ones theyâ€™re working against.
As for all those brief scenes where the Avengers are (literally) at each otherâ€™s throats? Well, donâ€™t forget Tom Hiddlestonâ€™s promise thatÂ Loki will be up to more mind gamesÂ inÂ The Avengers. Should be fun to see how that plays out, to say the leastâ€¦
Without further ado, we present the epic second official trailer for The Avengers:
