The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man are two of the biggest tentpoles next summer, but no film has as much star power as Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers. After years of world-building, Marvel’s top superheroes are finally getting altogether and we have an extended look at footage with the first trailer. The chemistry is there and those explosions look top-notch. We also get a first look at the Hulk and it looks to follow in line with the previous incarnations. I’ll be looking forward to see more of Whedon’s touch in future previews, but as a piece of hype, this works quite well.
Whedon‘s film stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo (replacing Edward Norton as The Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) along with numerous other familiar faces such as Samuel L. Jackson, Stellan Skarsgard and Cobie Smulders. Check out the trailer below via Apple.

As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
