While thousands of fans are close to breaking point at wanting to see how we director Joss Whedon assembles his Avengers (sorry!), I am still waiting to be convinced. I am almost, just about there and I just need one piece of evidence to push me over the edge into full on excited mode. Well dear readers, that day just might have come!
Those lucky Japanese have been blessed with what is probably the best trailer so far, and it features a whole ton of new footage not seen in the previous trailers. Check out the Japanese trailer for the newly titled ‘The Avengers Assemble’ at the bottom of this post.
Joss Whedon bravely takes up directing duties and also wrote the screenplay. Starring in the film we have Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury.
The Avengers arrives in UK cinemas 27th April. For all our previous stories, including the previous trailers, click here
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who’s who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.
