So it was the Superbowl last night. Not that I care, the game I cared about happened hours earlier when Wales faced Ireland in the rugby for the Six Nations. Happily, Wales won. But I’m getting off the point – there was a reason I cared about the Superbowl – and that was the release of the new trailer for The Avengers! And now the 30 second TV spot has been extended with a Facebook exclusive 1 minute trailer of sheer awesomeness!
Before I get to the trailer, though, here’s the official stuff:
Marvel Studios presents ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’—the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston, with Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson, and written and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012.
In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.

And so, here’s the trailer:
Doesn’t that just look amazing? April 27th can’t come soon enough if you ask me! I think Joss Whedon is going to deliver on this, I really do and if it ends up even half as fun as that trailer looks then we’re in for a great ride.
