The Avengers First Trailer

The first look at Joss Whedon’s superhero blockbuster

The Avengers official trailer has been released! We’ve just crowded around a computer screen and this is the consensus:

– It’s clear that Robert Downey Jr is going to get all the best lines

– Will anyone care about Hawkeye?

So far there’s nothing overtly Joss Whedon to elevate it beyond the superhero movies that have been released this year, although seeing the Avengers assembled and interacting is a bit of a thrill. Tell us what you think and make your star rating predictions!
