As expected, Marvel Studios has revealed the first official trailer for The Avengers, a movie they’ve been planning for quite some time.
The trailer is heavy on explosions and Iron Man/Tony Stark, but we see each member of the team in action, and get a brief glimpse at The Hulk towards the end.
When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, will star Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and will be released May 4th, 2012.
Thoughts on the trailer? Does it meet the hype?
