Okay, so I have been dying for this movie because not only is it some of the coolest heroes ever gathered, but it's Joss Freakin Whedon at the helm. A badass director, writer and producer, whose work I worship. Sorry, geek moment! Anyway without further ado here is the trailer for the superhero movie The Avengers, opening in May 2012.
Wow!! Is this kick ass or what? I knew Joss would give ol' Golden Boy an edge and seeing his 'tude with Tony Stark, plus what looks like his dust ups with Thor, yeah I think I just might like this version of CA. Speaking of my fave billionaire genius, RDJ is looking hellagood as usual. Love his little comment to Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner there at the end. And holy hell Thor was killer. Love Chris Hemsworth. Jeremy Renner was wicked bad, showing off that archery as Hawkeye. Dayum!!
The threat in here is epic. Tom Hiddleston has really amped up Loki. He looks meaner with a whole lot more attitude. That carpet bombing looks superb and so well done.
One problem for me though. Scarlet as Black Widow. She looks good, but I hope that these fight scenes are not indicative of what we can expect from her. There's got to be more. Tell me, why does every girl hero have to take down a man by crushing him with her thighs? I mean, seriously, there is no other possible way to beat his ass to death? How about a nice blow to the nose, driving it up into his brain? Come on Joss, I expected better. You created Buffy and Zoe for crying out loud. They didn't have to resort to the Thigh Master Take Down. Then again the bulk of this viewing audience is slavering little males who will be drooling into their popcorn going,"Scarlet could take me down that way anytime, heh,heh,heh."
Of course if Whedon has Chris Hemsworth go shirtless at any point in this film, all will be forgiven. I'll be drooling in my popcorn. Heh, heh, heh.
So what do you all think? Like it? Love it? Meh? Or OMFG it's another Marvel movie, I'd rather poke my eyes out with a fork. Talk to me.
