Fan boys everywhere are going crazy for the two-minute Avengers trailer released this morning by Marvel Studios.
Disney has been hyping this May 2012 film since at least 2008, when after the credits of Iron Man there was a clip of Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury) recruiting Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark) for a crossover super team. There was another hidden scene in that summer’s The Incredible Hulk, as well as in Iron Man 2.
This summer’s Thor and Captain America, with a combined $190 million budget, were criticised for being nothing but long prefaces to the Avengers.
Which is to say Disney has a lot of money wrapped up in this movie. Happily we’re impressed with the preview.
