“The Avengers” trailer arrives online

By Sean O’Connell The full trailer for Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers,” which kicks off Summer 2012, has been released online. It’s available on Apple’s trailer page, and can be accessed in multiple formats right HERE.

Finally, we’re getting our first official look at Marvel’s mightiest heroes in action. If you haven’t been following the steps that are leading to Whedon’s ensemble adventure, “The Avengers” unites Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in an epic battle against Thor’s wayward brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), with the fate of our planet hanging in the balance.

The clip shows us plenty of action. Some of the more intriguing shots include a Cap vs. Thor showdown, plenty of destructive carnage in a downtown setting, and – in the clip’s closing seconds – a full Hulk-out by new Bruce Banner, Mark Ruffalo.

Si far, it looks like Downey’s show. Not that this would surprise anyone. The charismatic actor plays right to Whedon’s strengths as a lighthearted storyteller, and while the clip appears to deliver the action, RDJ provides the comic relief that we’ve come to expect from a Whedon production.

This is the perfect appetizer for “Avengers” fans. It sets the stage nicely for what should be an exciting, entertaining culmination of a string of origin stories from the Marvel universe.

“The Avengers” will be in theaters in May 4, 2012.
