The Avengers Trailer Arrives Online, Assembled
10.11.11 by Ryan
After watching sneak peeks, looking at photos and reading character details, it's finally here — the first trailer for The Avengers.
For the first time, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are brought together by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) once Loki (Tom Hiddleston) lands on Earth. While the trailer shows the end result of the set photos that revealed the movie was blowing up Cleveland, the trailer only shows Loki as the villain of the movie when another is likely, but can you get mad at a trailer for not having spoilers?
The Avengers was written and directed by Joss Whedon (Serenity), and co-stars Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson (who appears briefly in the trailer), as well as Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig (who don't).
