The Avengers Gets a Start Date and a Fan-Made "Premake" Trailer
Posted 08.12.10 by BrentJS
It has been revealed that Marvel Studios' most ambitious superhero movie to date, The Avengers, will go into production in February 2011. A "team-up" movie to be written and directed by Joss Whedon (Serenity), The Avengers will feature cast and characters from Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. Joining the heroic alums will be newcomers Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye.
A teaser trailer for The Avengers was shown during last month's San Diego Comic-Con, at which the cast was "assembled" for the very first time. Unfortunately, it only consisted of a logo and a voiceover by Jackson as Nick Fury. However, if you're itching for a taste of super-team action, check out this fan-made "premake" trailer that shows what The Avengers movie might have looked like had it debuted in the 1950's.
