In a lot of cases I wouldn’t bother with something like this. It doesn’t really show anything nor does it give us any clues to the story, villains or much of anything else about the movie. So why show it at all? Well, because it’s for Marvel’s upcoming Avengers movie and I think it will be awesome. Also, why not?
In this very early teaser made especially for Comic-Con, we get Samuel L. Jackson narrating and telling us that on a certain day earth’s mightiest heroes decided to team up, form the Mother F***ing Avengers and kick some considerable ass. Obviously, if you know anything about comics you probably already know that. Plus, as we’ve been following this story for quite some time, you also know most of the actors in the film as well as the writers and director.
Still, the idea of Joss Whedon directed Avengers movie featuring Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Clark Gregg, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo is just too great an idea to pass up on any information, no matter how slight.
So, enjoy the teaser after the jump for what it is and expect a heck of a lot more info from this movie, and all the Marvel properties, as soon as it becomes available.
The Avengers assemble in theaters on May 4, 2012.
