3) Make a notation that day that indicates YOU ARE GOING TO GO SEE THIS TOTALLY AWESOME MOVIE.
Wowsa. Marvel Studios dropped the first full-length trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers films today, and it looks incredible. So much action! So many costumes! So much Sam Jackson sounding like a total bad-ass! We watched this trailer and were blown away. Here's what we noticed:
-This is our first real look at Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk. It's a weird change from Ed Norton's version of the character, and right now we can't help but think of Ruffalo as the slimy guy from The Kids Are Alright, but all the scenes where the character's Hulked out look crazy (like when he scales down the side of a skyscraper. Geez.)
-Pretty much every character gets a spotlight here, which is nice. Who's your favorite? This writer is partial to Thor.
-Speaking of Thor, it looks like his bad guy (Loki) will be the main enemy in Avengers. But also, there will be aliens? (Skrulls?)
-Why are Thor, Cap and Iron Man fighting each other? This is probably gonna be one of those comic book things where the heroes have a simple misunderstanding when they first meet, right?
-Dude. Thor riding on a jet. So cool.
-Poor Black Widow… she only has a gun to defend herself. Well, and martial arts. That's something. (note: we are the only people ever to feel sorry for Scarlett Johansson).
No doubt this movie looks great, and we can't wait to see it. Check out the trailer below, then let us know what you think!
