In less than two months The Avengers will assemble on thousands of movie theater screens around the world. It will have been nearly five decades since the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby brought together Earth’s mightiest heroes in the pages of the Avengers comic book series, and five summers since the groundwork was laid for the greatest superheroes in the Marvel Universe to team up on the big screen in the first Iron Man movie. What is the recurring theme of this paragraph? The Avengers has been a long time in the making, longer than anyone ever thought possible. In fact there was a time not long ago when the mere mention of an Avengers cinematic epic adventure was met with stifled laughter and rolling eyeballs.
No longer my friends, because The Avengers is almost here and is in fact the first of the major tentpole blockbusters out of the gate this summer. The trailers, posters, and stills have been coming hard and fast in recent months. Now there’s a new trailer for the movie made to promote it in Japan and it features even more footage than seen in previously released previews.
You can watch the trailer here below.
This is the best trailer yet for The Avengers. We are treated to extended glimpses of the movie’s still-unknown otherworldly threat attacking New York City, a surprise cameo from Gwyneth Paltrow as Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) faithful aide/love interest Pepper Potts, extra dialogue bits and action beats, and….oh yes….the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier rising from the ocean. Seriously ladies and gentlemen, if you’re not already primed for this flick then this trailer should close the deal.
