I could say a lot of things about the new trailer for The Avengers. One of those things is, “Holy explosions, Iron Man!” because holy hell, that was a lot of exploding. Don’t take my word for it, look!
From the looks of the trailer, Earth is invaded by explosion monsters from space or something. From what I’ve actually read, it has something to do with Loki, the god of mischief, coming down to wrangle up some mischief. Mission accomplished, Loki. Explosion-based mischief accomplished.
Ultimately, my suspicion is that this will be the hugest fan-service movie ever created, what with Joss Whedon at the helm, both writing and directing. Joss Whedon, for those of you who’re completely unaware was the guy behind some of the greats of the last so many years including, but not limited to, Firefly and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog.
Between him and the fact that they got Robert Downey Jr. back, sign me up. I’ve honestly no idea how they’re going to pull this off, but I’m more than willing to give it a chance and enjoy the ride. 2011 was a great year for Marvel movies, and it’s looking like 2012′s not going to be so bad, either, at least where The Avengers is concerned. The rest of the releases, however… not looking so optimistic. Ghost Rider is getting a sequel (with Nicholas Cage), and that Spider-Man movie looks terrible. I’d just like to reiterate Ghost Rider is getting a sequel.
The Avengers still looks fine. Let’s just focus on that and maybe that other crap will squeak by like a weak fart.
