Check out the second official trailer for Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ and learn more about the extraterrestrial threat that the world’s greatest superheroes must unite against.
Believe it or not, just over two months are now left in the countdown to the release of Marvel’s The Avengers. The comic book movie studio has been especially busy cranking up the buzz surrounding its estimated $300 million superhero juggernaut over the last week, to help heighten anticipation for today’s unveiling of a second official trailer.
The new Avengers trailer is now online and unlike previous trailers, it basically dives head-first into the plot of the film. While a good deal of the mystery surrounding Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his powerful alien army remains in place, the stakes have now been made clear and the stage is set for Earth’s most powerful superheroes to unite in its defense.
“War has started and we are hopelessly outgunned,” Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) says, as explosions go off across New York City.
“Director Fury? I think it’s time,” says Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg).
Overall, there’s a lot to admire in this new Avengers footage as far as sheer action spectacle and the scale of everything is concerned. Between sequences of Hulk rescuing a downed Iron Man and vast alien vessels laying ruin to metropolitan landscapes (among other noteworthy moments) it looks like Marvel’s money has been well spent. More so, this is the first trailer to suggest that The Avengers may truly be worth the price of admission for either a 3D and/or IMAX screening, based on some of the more elaborate shots and action sequences teased here.
“Doctor, I’m gonna need you to come in,“ Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) recruiting Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) in a remote cabin surrounded by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.
“What if I say… No!“, Bruce Banner, aka Hulk.
“I’ll persuade you.“
Rather than divulge the secrets of Loki’s forces just yet, this new Avengers trailer instead highlights the clashing of personalities and difficult team dynamic between the various members of the Avengers Initiative. Chalk up another early point for writer/director Joss Whedon, as he appears to have recognized that the conflicts between the various superheroes who make up The Avengers are (in many respects) just as important as the exterior ones they’re working against.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) clarifies a plot point from “Iron Man 2″ which implied he would not be a part of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“I thought I didn’t qualify,” Stark says as we get our first glimpse of the massive Stark Tower. “Apparently I’m — what is it? Volatile, self-obsessed and don’t play well with others.“
“We’re not a team. We’re a time-bomb!” Bruce Banner proclaims.
As for all those brief scenes where the Avengers are (literally) at each other’s throats? Well, don’t forget Tom Hiddleston’s promise that Loki will be up to more mind games in The Avengers. Should be fun to see how that plays out, to say the least…
“This is nothing we were ever trained for,” the Black Widow says to Hawkeye as the Avengers assemble in a circle.
“Guys, I’m bringing the party to you,” said Iron Man, as the trailer ends with a giant, worm-like ship tearing through a building headed straight toward the super-team.
This new trailer easily best the Big Game reveal. Can’t wait!
