It was certainly far better than the first trailer for Green Lantern was.

Yes. A 'couple' would be two and this is more than one. Ergo is is plural.

Sorry for having the temerity to have a different opinion from you on something. It must be very frustrating for you, all these people daring to differ.

My only small disappointment was I was hoping Whedon would go with something a bit more mythic with this movie. But instead it's looking like it'll just be the same "hip, modern action" style we saw with all the other Marvel movies.

While you can't argue against their success, there's a part of me that will always prefer the more mythic style of the Superman and Batman movies. Hell, even Thor didn't feel particularly mythic.

Captain America: The First Avenger felt generally mythic; the idea of the Cosmic Cube is pretty mythic. Maybe The Avengers will be mythic; it's too soon to tell based on one trailer.

If I have to have a Superman movie without speedos [sic] then you're getting an Avengers movie that isn't mythic.

Cool only for the glimpses of the team together...its not a great teaser trailer by any means.

Awesome trailer...and doesn't the studio also have a say in what we see in trailers? Not just the director? We know how uber-controlly Marvel Studios can be. Anyway, I'm pumped for this and loved the conversation Tony had with Banner at the end.

I agree, and I stand corrected about not getting a glimpse of the Hulk. I was please to catch a glimpse of some of the stuff they did here in Cleveland.

Robert Downey Jr is one of those actors that can be witty and can even make bad dialogue written for him seem witty. Despite that, the dialogue in the trailer feels scripted, really scripted, and he can't do anything about that. "Playboys' are the kinds of people who never use that term to describe themselves.

What can you say about a teaser trailer, save for it showing the team getting together?
And check this: For the past two years, the studio has been spending millions in order to put out formula action films with the idea that each one would be teaser for a film that will no doubt turn to be just another formula action picture that will have the same formula as the films that lead up to it. Why go through all the trouble if you aren't even going to try?

It wasn't a teaser trailer. The teaser trailer was shown after the credits of "Captain America: The First Avenger". This was the first theatrical trailer.

That wasn't so bad, you get the feeling there's a lot more work they have to do on the movie. But hey, I'll take it.

I think it's a teaser trailer. The other one was a special tag trailer, something meant to show that captain america was going to be in another film

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

Finally, I saw the trailer and it appears this first teaser trailer wasn't too early to hope to see a shot of some Hulk!
It was an adequately good first real look at the movie. It did sound as if the f/x sound at the start where cars are flipping and the street is getting shot up sounded borrowed from TFOM but hey maybe those weapons are wholesale readily available by alien races.

I like that Hawkeye's bow seemed to have purple accents to it as well. I wonder what will cause Thor to go after Cap, mind control or some outside force? I don't see a natural reason why Thor would do that. Standard Iron Man visuals but the Stark dialogue as noted was just as good as it's always been.

Eagerly looking forward to the first full on trailer that has more f/x finished with the Kree/Skull(whoever, Hulk along with adding more narrative that the film will follow.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

I actually thought maybe they where doing some training , but could easily be mind control or illusion, however, from watching all the previous movies I think the rest of the team including Hulk would be screwed if they had to fight Thor.
