Welcome to the Champion City Comics Trailer Park. Every Saturday we will review a trailer of interest and give our take on the good and the bad.
This week we are checking out the latest trailer for The Avengers.
Synopsis from IMDB: Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. bring together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.
Release date: May 4, 2012
Director: Joss Whedon
Starring: Robert Downey, Jr. Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
My thoughts on the trailer: Everything looks solid and hopefully we have ourselves a pre-summer winner.The cast is great and my favorites are the casting of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. I thought the previous Hulk movies were less-than-memorable and Ruffalo seems to be the best cast of all three movies. Renner is the right choice for Hawkeye as we need a cool but cocky guy to play the role. Thank goodness they did not dump Ryan Reynolds in our lap for the role. The story itself should be good since the script was developed by Zak Penn and was also worked on by Joss Whedon. Am I the only one disappointed by the fact that the villain is Loki?
