Gather together all the costumed heroes you can find and put them in one movie – that’s The Avengers.
Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evan have a bit of a snark-off, Samuel L. Jackson is a badass, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo are damn sexy and Scarlett Johansson looks flawless – yep, that’s about right.
The trailer has too many characters to focus on (even ditching some and quieting Renner completely) and tries to give us a preview of the action in too short of a time to really allow the viewer any true sense of the movie’s tone.
It’s simply too short for a movie that has so many interesting and wonderful actors and plot lines.
It’s still early – the release date is May 4, 2012 – and the director is Joss Whedon so I will give it a chance.
So much star power (cool) and so much of it seen before (not so cool).
What do you think? Is this trailer kinda disappointing? Or all sorts of awesome?
