Marvel's The Avengers Trailer

"Guys - I'm bringing the party to you." Marvel Studios has unveiled the second trailer in HD via Apple for Joss Whedon's The Avengers, the ensemble superhero action-packed crazy summer extravaganza that is going to blow the roof off movie theaters everywhere when it hits on May 4th, only 65 more days. We've seen one trailer before, and that big game spot, but this trailer has everything they could pack into it, tons of Iron Man and Cap and Loki, plus Hulk smashing his way through buildings, and much more. This is finally starting to look as epic and awesome as we've been hoping, glad to see it, can't wait for the summer!

Watch the second theatrical trailer for Joss Whedon's The Avengers, originally from Apple:

When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. The star studded cast includes Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, as well as Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgård who are reprising their respective roles from Thor. Marvel's The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon (Serenity), hits theaters everywhere May 4th, 2012. You can watch the first trailer here, the Super Bowl spot here, or this newest trailer in HD via Apple.

omg, wtf, peepee'd a little.

Greg Hogan on Feb 29, 2012


ending trailer with Iron Man one liner....check *although no hulk smash right after* show off the ridiculousness that is Captain America's helmet....checkok im all set to see this now.......

Jericho on Feb 29, 2012


Really liked the down to earth soldier shooting at the alien invasion moment at the start. Might be a tiny bit gritty which would be a nice change from the transformer style alien invasions. Looks epic.

BLARGh. on Feb 29, 2012


I love everything about this. 

Triangle Dimes on Feb 29, 2012


They seem to be holding so much back...we are only 60 days out now...

Kamish on Feb 29, 2012


They can hold back all they like! After that trailer I don't want to see anymore & it still keeps everyone in the dark as to what the main villians plans are & doesn't give away much. I'm ready to go sit down now at the theaters to figure out the rest of the puzzle, not on my couch on my computer lol.

Nick on Feb 29, 2012


cap americas helmet looks corny. So.. Scarlet Johansson is gone save the world with a regular gun? 🙂

Ryderup on Feb 29, 2012


yep and Hawkeye is going to save it with a bow and arrow. I love how many people are pointing out that she's holding a regular lil' hand gun but there's a guy on the team with a bow and arrow apparently fighting giant machines.

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


... and Cap with a made by mattel helmet and a ornate patriotic shield.  Not to mention Ironman purposely leading a craft the size of a skyscraper into their well posed semicircle in the middle of the block. snort.

Tiadelosangeles on Mar 20, 2012


 Arrows only have explosive tips large enough to damage or immobilise a military vehicle such as a tank or Bradley.   Explosive tips can break the tracks off of a D7R Cat BullDozer with what I have witnessed.  There are explosive rounds for guns but they are too big and heavy to carry around.  The only thing big enough to carry around with explosive tips is a Barret 50 cal. and I wouldnt want to run around with that if my life depended on it. Alot of snipers would prefer a lighter rifle to carry on long long missions.  A barret is made for super long range targets and are used close to where the sniper would dismount from the vehicle they are riding in and they only end up marching a small distance before setting up their op nest.  Sorry I got into detail there but arrows with explosive tips will work alot better if you are carrying something.

Ryguy198132 on Mar 22, 2012


I don't know, but she stole my heart in that costume.  Would of made a great Catwoman as well...

Steven on Feb 29, 2012


Certainly an improvement on the flippen poster anyway

Ross on Feb 29, 2012


That looked fuckin nuts. Can't wait to see this. Gonna one hell of an action packed movie. Gonna be great.

KINGMIC on Feb 29, 2012


I understand Hawkeye is the odd man out here, but can't they give us one line from Jeremy Renner?  The guy's an award winner.

JP on Feb 29, 2012


I'm sure he will have his fair share of screen time in the actual film. Why would they let the most unknown one have a big part in the trailer? Not as good for marketing as using Iron Man, Thor & Captain for the big trailers. Renner will shine in the film though I guarantee. He is a great actor & award winner like you said.

Nick on Feb 29, 2012


That actually makes sense. Iron Man is really the selling point of this movie. I read on box that Disney combatted the unfamiliarity of the other characters by selling the movie as "Iron Man and Friends", which sounds cheesy at first glance but in a way this is Iron Man 3 with a few extra buddies thrown in and that's not a bad thing.

Spike on Feb 29, 2012


Actually, it is a VERY bad thing.  Iron Man had two movies already: one of them was decent and the other one sucked.  Let the other heroes shine too, not everyone cares (or even likes, for that matter) Robert Downey Jr/Tony Stark.  Marvel needs to quit shoving Iron Man in our faces!  By the way, Captain America *IS* the leader of the Avengers, after all.

Anonymous on Mar 1, 2012


Understand though, Captain America is going to start this movie as a reluctant hero, and his leadership probably won't start to emerge until at least the end of the movie.

KingArglebargle on Mar 1, 2012


yes many people who don't care what comics say will actually watch this for anything BUT either Iron Man or Hulk?

Jericho on Mar 2, 2012


I'm impressed at how much Hulk looks like Ruffalo. I'll leave the wife at home, gather my comic book geek friends, get some popcorn and a Coke and enjoy. 

Quanah on Feb 29, 2012


it looks like him because they finally got an actor with a hulk sized head. Norton and Bana don't have Hulk Heads... Ruffalo does.

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


Ha. Funny. Looking at him again I can see he has a giant freak-head. I bet birds change their flight patterns to avoid hitting the back of his skull.

Quanah on Mar 1, 2012


Guy from Dexter would be an amazing hulk.

Ion677 on Feb 29, 2012


 Never thought of that, he could do it ferrigno style and just get painted green.  his angry face is scary enough

Ross on Mar 1, 2012


Wow. Nice idea. He would make a good Hulk. 

Quanah on Mar 1, 2012


Ditto that my friend!   And I'll see it again with the family!

VI0LAT0R on Mar 3, 2012


HULK catching ironman and sliding down a skyscraper!!! NO WORDS! jst amazing!

geek uk on Feb 29, 2012


So Ironman Vs. Thor Vs. Captain America...Rumble in the woods, sold.

Xerxexx on Feb 29, 2012


I'm now excited to see this movie.

Elbak on Feb 29, 2012


I can't help but chuckle when I see Black Widow reload that pea shooter when compared to everyone else. My God...!

DAVIDPD on Feb 29, 2012


Ummm Why are you laughing at that when one of them has a bow and arrow?

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


Because at least he (Hawkeye) has a super power and each arrow has some kind of special ability. Black Widow has nothing.

DAVIDPD on Feb 29, 2012


Hawkeye has no super power. He's just an accomplished marksman. Just as Black Widow is trained in advanced combat and stealth. Even Cap is really only a man brought to the height of human potential. Don't knock the "lesser" heroes, they get the job done.

Artzydantheman on Feb 29, 2012


LOL dude you clearly don't know your super heroes. You're getting your archers mixed up. Hawkeye doesn't do the gimmicky arrow thing. That's Green Arrow and that's DC comics. Like Artzy said... he's just a marksman. He's probably the worst off out of all of them. 

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


 I just don't think you understand how good of a marksman he is. In the Ultimate books he was once being interrogated tied to a chair, and killed everyone in the room with his finger nails. I kid you not.

Andrew Geczy on Feb 29, 2012


Andrew... let's be clear about 1 thing... Ultimate Hawkeye sucks. Most of the ultimate counterparts of their regular characters SUCK. 

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


Don't get me wrong, though... I still love Hawkeye and all the other "powerless" heroes. Realistically, they have more balls than anyone who can fly or shoot lasers from their eyes because they don't have special abilities to fall back on. However, that also doesn't mean I don't like seeing Thor or Hulk tear it up on the street. I think there's a place for all of them on the team; they compliment each other.

Artzydantheman on Feb 29, 2012


has anyone seen The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Hawkeye is amazing, you never know what his arrows can do

andrew on Mar 1, 2012


He would have taken over the world, but then Hawkeye showed up, and Loki took an arrow in the knee.

junk on Feb 29, 2012


I liked your comment but then at the same time I have to say "BOOOOOOOOOO"

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


when did bloody 9gag got in here too? Damn...

Bass1L on Feb 29, 2012



Tyler W on Feb 29, 2012


With the exception of Caps helmet. PERFECT! NERDgasm

JJ King on Feb 29, 2012


he doesn't wear it much in the movie.

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


as far as we know

Jericho on Mar 2, 2012


Yup..... this looks epic.

Sonny Bonds on Feb 29, 2012



『Mёmрhis Jау ™ on Feb 29, 2012


This trailer sold the 'Multiple superheroes teaming together' angle a bit better than the previous promos. I'm stoked. Being the first film of the summer movie season, effectively a sequel to FOUR different films, AND being released in all of the various forms of 3D...I have to assume this has a solid shot at breaking some opening box office records.

Chris_G on Feb 29, 2012


Captain America looks not-that-good. That would be my only complaint. Besides of that, I can't waaaait for this movie. It will break every kind of record out there...

Leinergroove on Feb 29, 2012


This day is like my birthday. But then, how will be the day when this film actually comes out? Confused... I need a beer. Cheers!

Isildur_of_Numenor on Feb 29, 2012


sooooo some one saw Transformers and said "i want that... and that... and that in my Avengers movie OR ELSE!"

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


Still can't get use to Scarlet as Black Widow, she's too much of a girly girl. They should've cast Olga Kurylenko or someone with a bit more toughness.

Nathan on Feb 29, 2012


Over-played, but Mila could have done it too.  😉  

Solo_Calrissian on Feb 29, 2012


Maybe, but I'd marry her none the me some Mila!

VI0LAT0R on Mar 3, 2012


Hellz yes!!  ...Probably the best role she never had.  Would have been great!

Solo_Calrissian on Mar 5, 2012



cinemabandit. on Feb 29, 2012


I cannot wait for this to get here!  I'm not sure about Cap's helmet, but otherwise this is going to be an awesome movie!  As soon as Banner changes to Hulk and screams "HULK SMASH", I'm giving this film a standing ovation!!

Hartsgrovian on Feb 29, 2012


C'mon Alex!!! this is a MUST WATCH! 😀

SpideyFan84 on Feb 29, 2012


Digging the new trailer Alex. Cool Stuff. When Black Widow says "I'll persuade you" to the Hulk, I'm thinking she better mean verbally. I don't think either she or the 20 armed men could hang with the big guy once he goes green.  0.o

Movie Room Reviews on Feb 29, 2012


 Verbally persuasion would not be what I'd have in mind...

Ross on Mar 1, 2012


I bet somewhere Hans Zimmer & Nolan are shouting *FIRST!!!  with the epic horns.   but in all seriousness, I am definately seeing this movie.  And with regards to the trailer, all they had to do was show 1:59-2:10.   

Solo_Calrissian on Feb 29, 2012


Hans Zimmer didn't score the inception trailer and that note isn't in the movie.

DaftBot on Feb 29, 2012


I'm totally with you on the note 'thing.'  I dont wanna split hairs with it either, but what immediately came to mind when I heard the trailer score was 'Dream is Collapsing' & 'Agressive Expansion' by Zimmer.  Seems like that sort of style to expand the scope of the movie is catching on.  I guess If I were to split hairs I'd point to this trailer sounding more like Transformers 3 (with a different note of course!)   😉        

Solo_Calrissian on Mar 1, 2012


This has made me a little more excited about it.  So the Mk 7 has gone back to the circular chest arc but with war machine type shoulder pods?  Looks a little odd but still cool.  

Chris Amaya on Feb 29, 2012


The trailer looks good but you have to 'marvel' at the pressure that Whedon is under. Satisfying the devoted fans who'll be happy if hulk is wearing the right trousers, yet also appealing to those who relish the chance to see something that might be lifted above the 'movie by numbers' that a lot of superhero films adopt. It's gonna be a tough one, and as much as I have faith in the man, I'm not sure if it's an unwinable war.

Payne by name on Feb 29, 2012


Ok Dark Knight Rises... You are now on the clock

K1ng on Feb 29, 2012


Whoa, never thought I'd say this but thy just made the dark knight rises look lame.

Brody on Feb 29, 2012



SuicidalOptimist on Feb 29, 2012


never count Christopher Nolan out when it comes to Batman

andrew on Mar 1, 2012


The difference is that Nolan doesnt have to show the best parts of the Dark Knight Rises to get people to come see it...  Too much footage has always been my biggest complaint when it comes to trailers.

Solo_Calrissian on Mar 1, 2012


Orgasmic. Could The Dark Knight finally have a competitor?! 

Curtis Gabriel on Feb 29, 2012



GregDinskisk on Mar 21, 2012


Alex, how is this just a Watch? That was one of the best trailers I've ever seen! I was excited before but wow... after that, this movie can't get here soon enough!

Brandon Carey on Feb 29, 2012


Looks good although I'm starting to feel that this is going to be just another big blockbuster action movie than an epic, cause all I've notice is that one huge " i think its final" battle scene repeated all over again and again in all the avenger trailers.. The movie is just gonna be getting all the members together, slight hustle and tussle here and there, and then fight off a major battle in the climax of the movie... That's how all regular action movies are made... So all audience are gonna really get their adrenaline pumped up and excited just for that last battle scene.. if u haven't notice, most of the clips shown in the trailer tracks to just one major battle scene and that's what was used to make avenger trailers because most probably that's the only part that's gonna excite everyone than other scene in the movie *marketing strategy i presume*

Stevenfreestyler on Feb 29, 2012


No offense but you JUST realized it's a big summer blockbuster? I kinda realized that when the movie was announced last year. I have this friend who every time a super hero movie comes out he ask me if it can match The Dark Knight. The difference between TDK and every other super hero movie is TDK was never attended as an "ok it's summer let's put out a superhero movie" like Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Green Lantern, and so many others are. TDK was one man having an idea and wanting to tell the story of Batman that he envisioned. It just so happened that that man Christopher Nolan is a FUCKING GENIUS and the movie was incredible. But Avengers is exactly as you said "just another summer blockbuster". Couple of explosions, A little bit of conflict, Cool CGI, Kiss the girl at the end, and lets all go home.

VA_Jay on Feb 29, 2012


 I feel like no one here seems to know what Joss Whedon is capable of. They all think he's just another Michael Bay...

Andrew Geczy on Feb 29, 2012


 check it out again, I said that I'm starting to feel that its just gonna be another big summer blockbuster action movie rather than something that makes a mark or a standout for the year, which means how The Dark Knight made its definite mark for the year 2008, it was remembered and talked about for years till the next big thing showed up.... I didn't just realized, i know every year for the next 100 years there's gonna be always one or a couple of high profile big summer blockbuster showing up in a year. No offense but you realized it was a big summer blockbuster when it was announced last year, but i'm realizing it every year and definitely gonna realize "its a big summer blockbuster" for the next 100 years. And one more thing, i never compare a movie with the others out there, only of which will excel overall..... For you info, The Dark Knight legend is in a class of its own... Its ridiculous to compare each hero with the others because every hero's are in a class of their own.. The only comparison will be who will do the best in the end, of cause for the year...

Stevenfreestyler on Mar 5, 2012


 But one thing for sure, its far better than the big summer blockbuster Transformers ever was lol ;D

Stevenfreestyler on Mar 5, 2012


Oh, interesting things with Thor. Also, will Hawkeye ever speak?   

Lauren Intong on Feb 29, 2012


Hnnggh! Ok, now I am finally getting excited for this. The trailer looks very promising, and the scene where the Hulk catches Ironman was amazing. I got actually a little choked up and squealed a bit.  Goddamn, this year is gonna be a bitch on my wallet. So many huge movies to watch!

SuicidalOptimist on Feb 29, 2012


It seems as interesting and touching as Sex and the City II

JM on Feb 29, 2012


"Thank you sir may I have another...?" LOL

heNrY on Feb 29, 2012


this looks like it could be the best marvel film to date.

the hulk on Feb 29, 2012


What's with the Transformers thing at the end? Is Marvel buying rehashed CGI from Michael Bay and ILM? Looks lame.

Jezebel on Feb 29, 2012


 That Sir is the Migard Serpent seeing as how Asgard tech is based off Magic and science, this looks better than Transformers IMO ,and I love Transformers

NeoSlyfer on Feb 29, 2012


I'm so hoping for Captain America to say to do battle cry "Avengers Assemble!!!" now that will make the movie!!

Davidbryan949 on Feb 29, 2012


Wait 4 it! i'm sure they wouldn't leave it out, the Geekdom would never stand 4 that! 🙂

BigMikeG23 on Mar 1, 2012


My expectations are high, this new trailer makes me think I didn't set them high enough. Can't wait.

Readyforanything on Feb 29, 2012


VA_Jay had the best post. It's completely true, everything he said.

BigR on Feb 29, 2012


 this was looking pretty good  - then hulk caught iron man out of mid-air and peeled down that i HAVE to see this!

beevis on Feb 29, 2012


far too much action in this movie and not enough dialogue i fear.

Para on Feb 29, 2012


 Um, do you know who Joss Whedon is???

Andrew Geczy on Feb 29, 2012


do you know who walt disney pictures are?

Para on Mar 1, 2012


Do you know who Barbra Streisand is? This isn't relevant, but just my curiousity.

GregDinskisk on Mar 21, 2012


the movie is gonna be bananas....holy s***

i have to see that.opening day for me.

Judas on Feb 29, 2012


I hope this is the very first damn time heroes collide in a live-action film.

JohnCuriel on Feb 29, 2012


I hope this is the very first damn time heroes collide in a live-action film.

JohnCuriel on Feb 29, 2012


Super. Super Heroes anyway. I was throwing comic books at the screen but it just got covered in comic books.

Crapola on Feb 29, 2012


I hope in some way Marvel can work some sort of a deal, so they can get Wolverine and Spiderman in any Avengers sequels, but then you have a bit of a continuity problem. But hey they rebooted Spiderman, so maybe something can be worked out.

Chrisills on Mar 1, 2012


Just noticed if you look closely or pause it at just the right moment, the flying serpent at the end doesn't look like a machine, it looks like an organic mouth, so it could just be wearing armour, it could be the Midgard Serpent.

Chrisills on Mar 1, 2012


Doesnt the apprnce of Midgard leads to death of both Thor and Loki???

Duck on Mar 1, 2012


Yep, Thor finally kills the creature, his body is pulped, suffering from the Curse of Hela, his bones become as brittle as glass but he is unable to heal or die. Thor "resurrects" himself by taking mental control of the Destroyer and forcing Hela to recreate his body and free him from her curse.

Chrisills on Mar 1, 2012


I think there's a danger sometimes that because they stumble for decent bad guys that having a 'generic bad guy robot' like they did in Iron Man 2 (and many others) makes the battles feel somewhat empty. Joss is great at adding a feeling of peril in a battle (killing Wash just before the final fight in Serenity made you genuinely feel that he could have killed them all off) but it's unlikely that flying robot 3457 will be the one that takes out one of the good guys. Oh, I'm just not sure. The action looks great but is it going to engage me like it did in District 9?

Payne by name on Mar 1, 2012



Quanah on Mar 1, 2012


Wow, random spoilers abound! No point to get to the Serenity boxed set i recently borrowed from a friend i guess!

2na Lordhavemercy on Mar 1, 2012


Sorry bud, I thought with the Whedon love, I could drop this. However don't let it stop you watching the Firefly (the TV series) box set. Serenity (the film) is still definetly worth watching despite my spoilers, especially with the other characters that die off!

Payne by name on Mar 1, 2012


isnt serenity 6 years old? not a spoiler anymore. 

Viserethdoden on Mar 1, 2012


great new blog piece about the avengers at filmcycle dot wordpress dot com

Raymond Woods on Mar 1, 2012


The beginning was okay but at the end it was Transformers 4.

Jackmooney9 on Mar 1, 2012


this movie opens here in mexico on april 27th. one full week before you guys in the states so ajuuuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

Judas on Mar 2, 2012


Can't wait to see Hulk finish off that terminator snake thing!!!

Banner on Mar 2, 2012


i hope this movie is released in the desert imax  here in catedral city,because i'd love to see it that way,the best quality possible.

superhulk on Mar 4, 2012


Is it me or is there anyone out there didn't realize that there are Two more members of the Avenger's unit has gone missing?... The Giant and The Wasp, according to the Marvel 2 part animation of the Avengers that came out like two years ago if I'm not mistaken. And both looks like almost the same.. just a little extras here and there " Loki add on" that's for sure.

Stevenfreestyler on Mar 5, 2012


Not even a Marvel fan, but I just creamed in my pants.

BATMAN on Mar 11, 2012


Hey John Carter this is how you make a hype trailer for a film...

Guy on Mar 16, 2012


Okay I'm a big Thor fan and they had better do him right. I mean in the comic books he owned Iron man, Hulk, Cap respected him as a god enough said

Arch on Mar 18, 2012


ANYBODY notice in the first seconds, where the people are running for their lives, the woman in black and white is SMILING from ear to ear??

nycs on Mar 19, 2012


One of the best Films i've ever seen. This movie started on thursday in Germany, and it is great! Much Fun with it.
