    Pretty good trailer, but I hated the use of the rock song. Always seems like pandering when a trailer is made to look like a music video. Also, the movie's got to be more than shit blowing up.

    I'm not a big Whedon fan, so this may be off, but I think his reputation suggests it will be more than just shit blowing up. That's just a teaser trailer thing (and the laser stuff did look pretty cool).

    Like someone said earlier. I think the lack of Hulk scenes has more to do with the CG not being done rather than his character being an after thought.

    I've been pretty vocal about hating Downey as Stark.


    Then again, I've never understood all the Tobey/Parker hate either..

    Not to be a dick, but I almost think you have to be jaded if that trailer didn't do anything for you. I mean, seriously, what more could you possibly want or expect from a teaser trailer?

    My initial response to the trailer is summed up with "It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Not saying Whedon is an idiot, just saying the trailer filled with explosions just didn't quite impress me...

    I've seen some exceptional teaser trailers, especially for films as anticipated as The Avengers. This trailer was not exceptional in the least. While it was fun seeing the characters in a single action beat and with one single character interaction, it was hardly as well put together as the teaser for, say, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo or The Muppets. It felt generic when it should have felt special.

    I agree the trailer wasn't anything special, it basically just set out to tell all the people (who didn't already know) "hey look, here's a movie with all these other dudes together, oooo!"
    It should have set up a basic understanding of the threat in the film, and how it's so large we have almost no hope of surviving it. Cut to The Avengers.
    Of course, that may not be in the movie at all. In which case they probably shouldn't have bothered making it...

    Every trailer for "The Muppets" has been fantastic. I mean just dead on fantastic in the way that surprised me how dead on they are. Which surprises me that you also mention Girl with a Dragon Tattoo.. which I am VERY much looking forward to; I love the prior film, and I will miss the lead actress; but I think it could be done better and frankly, in English will help ;) but the Muppet trailer that parodied it was fantastic.

    They should of left out Scarlet and the guy with the bow, forget his name. They look totally useless in the trailer and only add to the "too many characters" syndrome.

    Agreed, but not as much of a problem as the redone Captain America suit. Looks like he's dressed for a Halloween party and nearly as campy as the terrible suit from the 80's movie. Shame since the suit totally worked in his own movie.

    I think Joss is just trying to stay true to the comic book series. On average the # of Avengers in the comics was about 9. 6 might work for the movie.
