Well, it has been almost 4 years, and 5 movies in the making and the first teaser trailer of the much anticipated (and hyped) “The Avengers” has hit the Internet. And surprisingly, it’s not a bootleg, it’s the real thing.
Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have been cooking up this ad campaign since 2008 when the first “Iron Man” movie was a box office success. Since 2008, Marvel Studio has released a movie for every member of the Avengers to serve as an origin story until 2012 when they would all meet up for this movie.
Joss Whedon was chosen to direct this film, probably because of his past work with ensemble cast, IE “Firefly,” “Serenity” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”. It shows, this trailer and first look seems to balance the superheroes and the celebrity actors that bring them to life.
Time to prepare for the summer 2012 season when “The Avengers” is set to be the biggest movie of the summer, if not that year. I’m really excited!!
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”-the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow.
