The Avengers is looking like the film to beat next summer. The new trailer, released by Marvel, showcases director Joss Whedon’s team of superheroes, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, and more.
Take a look at the trailer:
The film is scheduled for a May 4, 2012, release. The superstar cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the film’s villain.
The key for the film’s success will be weaving in so many iconic characters into one story. That job falls to Whedon, the creator of the cult TV show, ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’.
