That Extended Cut of the AVENGERS Trailer Most of You Have Already Seen is Here, Worth Talking About Again

Official Synopsis

Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. bring together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.

What We Learned: Nick Fury believes in Harvey Dent heroes. Loki doesn’t seem to be bound to a scientists mortal form anymore. Tony Stark has iron balls to talk smack to, what for all intents and purposes, is a god. Of course, he’s probably drunk during that meeting. HULK SMASH PUNY FUTURE JET!

Why We’ll Watch: We’ll watch because of all the snark we mentioned above and then some. Seeing Marvel finally step into the light of making entertaining movies from their characters has been a joy for this Marvel zombie. Sure there have been a few mis-steps but with the House of Ideas running their own movie studio it became easier for them to keep their continuity in line. Although, it did get in their way a few other times. The loss of Jon Favreau and Ed Norton will be felt. But the machine, as always, lurches on.

Now if only Marvel studios could get back the rights to Spider-Man, The X-Men and the Fantastic Four. We could get a good sized mega-movie by throwing them back into movie continuity.

Watch the trailer below the cut.

When’s it coming? May 4, 2012

Whomever Gazes Upon this Poster will have All the Powers of The Mighty Thor…

…At least, that is what a lot of the other movie sites would have you believe.

We do think it is a striking character poster for the upcoming Marvel movie. But take away the famed hammer Mjolnir and Chris Hemsworth could just as easily be slightly armored Superman.


Sorry Marvel. didn’t mean to invoke the competition.

SDCC THOR Trailer is Back. Watch Quickly Before It’s Gone.

Official Synopsis

The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

“Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”

What We Learned:
It’s been off and on You Tube for a few hours/days now. Somehow it has stabilized enough for folks to embed the sucker.

Why We’re Gonna Watch:
Nice to see you again Agent Phil Coulson. Your character’s becoming a real Ensemble Darkhorse in our book. Before the trailer we were gonna watch THOR because it was a Marvel Studios film. Now having seen the thing in action, our interest level has jumped up a few clicks.

If the trailer’s not viewable by the time you watch this just run a Google or Twitter search. Or just wait a while. The full-on marketing campaign can’t be far off. After some of the geek grumblings we’ve seen over the released costume photos we suspect this “leak” was the result of a marketing plan.

When’s it coming?
The official site says May 2011.
