That is the best trailer so far, even if the narration was in Japanese.

I'm not familiar with the source material... But a Heli-carrier???

Yeah I get that apparently that is true to the comics. BUT. It looks ridiculous.

I really like the grounded approach of the first Iron Man film, but this... It seems like a completely different universe.

I couldn't disagree more. That was the moment where I was completely sold on the Avengers movie.

As far as 'grounded approach', you really think that Tony Stark is the only guy in the world capable of creating a power-source in a cave? Yeah, in the Marvel Universe the military has sh*tloads of money and guys getting payed to think of things like flying aircraft carriers.

We went from a guy in power-armor to pagan gods and cubes that power disintegration guns during WWII within three movies and you have a problem with flying aircraft carriers??

I'm not saying its completely realistic, the further we've gone from the first Iron Man movie the more fantastic the premise has become. That's how these things work.

The carrier could be outfitted with Stark's Repulsor/flight stabilizer tech


First Class- We had a levitating submarine


Nick Fury- We have a flying air craft carrier

Ultimate SHIELD has a fleet of helicarriers that are literally aircraft carriers retrofitted with Stark tech engines to fly. the Ultimate Nightmare limited series then featured a heli-cruiser, i think it was, which was basically a cruiser with the same flight mod and a belly hangar.

No, not anymore. And this might be a prime example why.

Just because it is in a comic does not make something a "good idea". Most comic book adaptations filter away the ... less than brilliant parts. Or things that don't work so well in the film medium. Flying carriers... Yeah, I think that crosses that line for me. Why not attach some rotors to the Stark building and have it fly into space while we are at it?

I'm still looking forward to the film, but some aspects of it has me worried.

Doctor Who I have watched. And it is good sometimes, and ridiculous a lot of the time. What does it have to do with 'Avengers'?
