2012 may not be the biggest year for superhero movies, but it certainly contains some of the genre’s biggest ever films. I have no doubt that The Dark Knight Rises will be the ruler of the year, but Joss Whedon’s mega budget, epic superhero flick The Avengers should come a close second. I mean, a film which features Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Hawkeye all in one sitting can’t possibly fail, can it?
Well, those who weren’t exactly blown away by the first trailer are in for a treat as a brand new trailer is due to debut sometime later today! Keep it here at HCF to get your first look at it when it goes online. In other Avengers news, a brand new poster was revealed today, ahead of the new trailer, and it is mighty impressive I must say! Featuring all the main characters surrounded by scenes of carnage, and expertly painted on for that lovely comic book effect. the poster is a good sign of things to come.
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.
