Last night, a decent football game broke out during the trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers. By which I mean to say that there was a new trailer that aired during the Superbowl.
It should be just enough to keep fans happy – and considering the lack of trailers for two of the other big superhero films of the summer, that’s a good thing.
They aired a fairly short trailer during the game, with instructions to go to the film’s Facebook page and like the page to watch the full length trailer.
Or you could, you know, watch it here.
First up, we’ll show you the broadcast version, followed by the full trailer.
“I have an army.”
“We have a Hulk.”
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, is set to open May 4, 2012. The Avengers finds Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. assembling the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to pull the Earth back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens the planet. The film stars Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Phil Coulson and Maria Hill, and Stellan Skarsgard as Dr. Selvig.
