It would certainly seem that Marvel believe in its super heroes. They chose to premiere the trailer for The Avengers on Super Bowl Sunday, in front of a world wide audience of 100 million.
The Super Bowl is a massive advertising opportunity as millions tune in. Among the movie trailers that made an appearance: The Hunger Games and G.I. Joe: Retaliation being two, we finally have footage of The Avengers.
And it wasn’t a disappointment. The new teaser was packed full of superhero action.
For anyone not in the know, The Avengers is the next comic for Marvel to tick off their list. And they don’t even have to cast new heroes! Each character has already made an appearance in another film.
When an unexpected enemy lands on the scene, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) needs to recruit a super team to keep the world from the brink of disaster. Enter Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Captain America, who all band together into one unstoppable team of awesomeness.
The trailer shows Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America and Scarlett Johansson in combat as Black Widow. Meanwhile Robert Downey Jr. gets the last word against baddie Loki as Tony Stark aka Iron Man.
Loki: “I have an army.”
Tony Stark: “We have a Hulk.”
We can’t wait either. It’s looking epic!
The film will be released world wide on 27th April 2012. Check out our lowdown on The Avengers here and the trailer below:
