‘The Avengers’ trailer wins us over

Posted at 5:00 pm, March 1, 2012 in Arts & Entertainment

Recent Marvel blockbusters like ‘Thor’, ‘Captain America’ and especially  ‘Iron Man 2’ may have had their detractors, but there are a number of reasons why the new trailer for upcoming superhero symposium ‘The Avengers’ has got us a bit excited. First, it’s written and directed by ‘Buffy’ creator Joss Whedon, a man who, through numerous TV series, movie scripts, directing gigs and online silliness, has rarely put a foot wrong. Then there’s the cast, bringing together the stars of the three aforementioned flicks (one of whom is the ever-wonderful Robert Downey Jr) and chucking in the likes of Mark Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk, Samuel L Jackson and Scarlett Johansson as Avenger Initiative agents and Time Out favourite Tom Hiddleston as psycho-trickster-God Loki. Add what seems to be an endorsement for this very magazine (at about one minute in), and you’ve got a trailer that wins us over without breaking a sweat.
