I'm with you, can't wait!

Phillip Gockel on Oct 11, 2011


i hope this movie makes the top sellout in box office history up next to titanic and avatar. and i hope they explain how thor is about to get back to our

JBrotsis on Oct 13, 2011


HA! yeah, maybe until Dark Knight Rises comes out! Then its back to the bottem! DKR will toppel over all, Titanic, Avatar, Pirates, you name it............

Xr2email on Oct 16, 2011


Woooo! The Avengers will be the biggest movie ever! Watch out Avatar!

Lorraine Carano on Oct 11, 2011


biggest movie ever? avatar wouldn't even crack my top 50 edit: sorry, lorraine, i guess i misinterpreted what you were saying - my bad.

Anonymous on Oct 11, 2011


he meant at the box office einstein

Geoffrey Shauger on Oct 11, 2011


was that directed at me?

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


if that is what was meant - it should have been written that way........i thought it was open to interpretation. and you, sir, are the idiot - calling someone named "lorraine" a he?????

Anonymous on Oct 12, 2011


You must be thinking of avatar the last airbender if your implying that the highest grossing movie of all time wasn't a huge hit

Mdiddles on Oct 11, 2011


actually - i thought she was suggesting avatar was one of the best movies to watch of all time. when looked at from the standpoint of "highest grossing".......i wouldn't even have commented on it.  and yea - LA was a putrid film.

Anonymous on Oct 12, 2011


Better than avatar?))))))) U r funny. This movie will be forgotten in a few months, but avatar is still huge. And by the way it has moral, it shows the problem of current world, but that movie is just next movie with famous actors and special effects. They are totally different!  

inormis on Oct 11, 2011


Except The Avengers is gonna be the shit, and Avatar was colorful, preachy drivel. It was pretty to look at, though.

Buttass on Oct 12, 2011


perhaps there should be new genre "shit"

inormis on Oct 12, 2011


yea and in it avatar...

Chuchin_elcarliux on Nov 10, 2011


With all those heroes, they only blow up the "cars"? I know it's a friggin teaser but still.. And what's with Downey jr mumbling? This is not Sherlock Holmes. ah, wait...

Dan on Oct 11, 2011


So hard to tell from the teaser what the "threat" is, but I'm liking all those heroes in one room.

Quanah on Oct 11, 2011


The threat is Loki.

Darthverous on Oct 11, 2011


I'm sure Loki is instrumental, but I'm just hoping there's more to it than just him.

Quanah on Oct 11, 2011


I'm with you there Quanah, I'm hoping for maybe a little Skrull action! Or heck maybe of combination of villains from the previous movies (Loki, Red Skull, etc.) but that probably wouldn't be likely! lol

Duck5 on Oct 11, 2011


seeing as how Red Skull was beamed up to Asgard im sure he will make an appearance.

Anonymous on Oct 11, 2011


You guys didn't see the leaked video of the cancelled avengers game movie tie in? the skrulls were in it. maybe that's a hint of more to come >:)

Chris Amaya on Oct 11, 2011


Loki will probably be the only villain for this movie, since no others were hinted at b4, and if they do come up with a new villain this will suck, becuz the story will seemed rushed

BigMike23 on Oct 12, 2011


the rumor so far is that loki is bringing the skrulls to earth by using the cosmic cube.  hopefully its true

Marcus on Oct 15, 2011


and thanos

Croniccris on Oct 12, 2011


Loki+cosmic cube=bad

Phillip Gockel on Oct 11, 2011


I think it's definitely gonna have some Skrulls, that's who that funky space ship belonged to and everything, plus the motion capture suit guys on set. Definitely Skrulls.

Buttass on Oct 12, 2011


dont avengers get a ship or jet of their own tho? like xmen.. idk but yea the motion cap guys on set definately mean skrulls..

Chuchin_elcarliux on Nov 10, 2011


EPIC WIN - didn't reveal too much - just enough to get the juices flowing! YEW!!! BRING IT!

Nick Sears on Oct 11, 2011


Always like that at the beginning till the real trailer comes out and reveals the whoooole plot! :L

pipo on Oct 12, 2011


Ummm... it's showing me a trailer for a French film (albeit, a good looking one)

Rizzostudios on Oct 11, 2011


i liked it, but would of liked to see less action, and more of them interacting, that'll be the good shit

Ross Malloch on Oct 11, 2011


This trailer looks more like "Iron Man & Friends" but I'm totally in

Bass1L on Oct 11, 2011


still liked eric bana as bruce banner but hopefully everyone else can make up for it

Luke Hanna on Oct 11, 2011


Trailer is also on youtube now, not all have/like quicktime. Good trailer 🙂

David Banner on Oct 11, 2011


thank you for posting that. yea when the quicktime crap popped up and delayed me watching it, i literally flipped my shit!

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011



John on Oct 14, 2011


That looks epic, seemed to focus on downey jr tho

Quick_Movies on Oct 11, 2011


Only one thing is good in this trailer and it's the Hulk's face:

Konti on Oct 11, 2011


While I disagree that it's the only good thing, I do agree that it looks like they've done some pretty impressive modeling work on the hulk.

Phillip Gockel on Oct 11, 2011


Definitely phillip...they've really tried capturing ruffalo's face. though i am disappointed that they only showed so little of hulk...i feel like that was done on purpose. I wanted to see more of him.

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


makes it seem like he will be the villain in the end....

Jericho on Oct 11, 2011


Avengers Assemble!!!

Motherfucker Jones on Oct 11, 2011


Nice name. How'd you get it? 🙂

ur_babys_daddy on Oct 11, 2011


where's Neo? I thought he was in this!

Harrisj2k on Oct 11, 2011


This looks unpolished and epically cheesy. Wow. Soooo disappointed. And damn does Thor look strange in this. Like he just got out of a hair salon and forgot to dry his hair.

Marty on Oct 11, 2011



John on Oct 14, 2011


Hulk Smash!!!

Konti on Oct 11, 2011


It`s either gonna be dissapointing Sh#!#t or entertaining Sh#!#t but its definitely going to be S#!#t!

SomeDude on Oct 11, 2011


Nice troll.  Get than from 4chan?

Cody on Oct 11, 2011


AMEN, BROTHER!!! I lean in the direction of S%#@T!!! Still can't get excited about this movie. Just get it over with so we can get back to Iron Man working alone and Captain America fighting evil back in WWII. That's ALL I want!

iron man owned this trailer!

Turner 01 on Oct 11, 2011


I think we can all agree that Joss Whedon knows how to handle a billion characters in one movie.  Yes I know there are about 10, still.  It looks as though everyone will get ample screen time.  And is it just me or is this trailer better than the dark knight one.

Michael Lee on Oct 11, 2011


it's just you.

Kyle on Oct 11, 2011


entirely and easily, just you

Voice of Reason on Oct 11, 2011


I agree with you Michael.

jah p on Oct 11, 2011


Are you seriously comparing trailers? What's next? Marvel vs DC?

Manuel on Oct 11, 2011


it's just them (kyle, lagoya, voice of reason). you're right.

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


dark knight rises was a teaser this is a trailer...

Croniccris on Oct 12, 2011


Well that was god-awful music. 

jackson on Oct 11, 2011


it sucks but yea i have to strongly agree. outside of the fact that the trailer alone was great, i really didn't like hearing the music. too bad there isn't a way to mute the music without muting the rest of the sound haha

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


Only good thing about this trailer was the NIN song and Scarlett.  Are we done with the super hero movies now, please??????

Bloodroutes on Oct 11, 2011


hell no this is the golden age of superhero movies you will probably be getting more for the next least

Croniccris on Oct 12, 2011


The music awful no no no! Nine Inch Nails are amazing! and bring on the popcorn. superhero orgy!

H33h on Oct 11, 2011


seriously there is jut no pleasing people

Michael Lee on Oct 11, 2011


Uhh you mean stupid people. Great song, actually relevant too. I'm thinking Faverau did the trailer.

Anonymous on Oct 11, 2011


There is so much Whedon in that trailer!

BigRed42 on Oct 11, 2011


i've seen Thor a while ago but didnt Loki die at the end ?

Lokiboki on Oct 11, 2011


 yeah, seems that i'm the only one who missed the secret ending, oops

Lokiboki on Oct 11, 2011


Haven't you learned... ALWAYS stay after the credits at marvel movies...

Iyaman24 on Oct 11, 2011


I agree with Iyaman24, Marvel movies = stay after credits, all starting from Iron Man except for X-men First Class have had after credit scenes.  Better watch that scene since its pretty much the key element for the Avengers film AND the Captain America film. Anyways Loki didnt die, he fell into the wormhole before it closed...

Nightshade24 on Oct 13, 2011


you obviously missed the end credits should see it b4 u ask any more questions

BigMike23 on Oct 11, 2011


I am the sad, pitiful comments made here. This looks like a MOVIE! A fun, awesome one at that with great characters I love. What else do you want? I for one am excited to see what Whedon has to show us. You other people are silly...

Queenbillina on Oct 11, 2011


Couldn't agree more.

Nick Sears on Oct 11, 2011


Same here...too many dark knight fans on here and they continue to compare every superhero film to I agree, very silly..

jah p on Oct 11, 2011


I get ya and I am wicked stoked for this one, but the Dark Knight did set the bar for superhero flicks pretty damn high.

Newswriter86 on Oct 11, 2011


Agreed! Very exited for this movie and the hulk gave me chills at the end.

McWilly on Oct 11, 2011

81 Best I can figure is Loki got a parole job with the MTA and is effing with NYC's underground just a wee bit more than the MTA already does.

Voice of Reason on Oct 11, 2011


what is that loki says at the beginning, "in the end...." what? my english sucks!

srdiaz on Oct 11, 2011


I want more! MORE I TELL YOU!

Duck5 on Oct 11, 2011


Looks pretty cool but I was hoping to see at least more Cap'n if not anybody else. We all know Downey Jr. is awesome, show us some of the other players!

Guest on Oct 11, 2011


Well it is public knowledge that when they first started production Downey Jr. went to Whedon saying this is Iron Mans show and they tried it and both decided that it didn't really work. Maybe the reason this trailer has so much Iron Man is because that's why they tried first. Don't worry guys we have 7  months for them to touch this all up. I am very excited to see Ruffalo as Banner. I miss Bana because he emphasized what Banner was in the comics I think but Ruffalo has some serious acting chops so I hope it works out. Just no more of Zoolanders "Blue Steel" pose, okay Mark?

Maxx on Oct 11, 2011


This was really unimpressive. Maybe I expect too much. The first ironman flying through the city looked so cheesy, it's like a guy standing on a green screen.

Tim on Oct 11, 2011


Lol what do you people want?  It's an awesome trailer, and the use of NIN was perfect.      I really don't understand why people think this looks dumb.  It was a great reveal of what we've been waiting for.

Chazzy on Oct 11, 2011


Was this shot in 16:9 HD tv style? Why isn't it cinematic wide screen? Doesn't look as epic.

Tim on Oct 11, 2011


My thoughts exactly.

Snev De la Fontaine on Oct 11, 2011


Maybe it was made especially for TV. Don't care if it was 16:9 or anamorphic wide... but I agree it wasn't epic.

Anonymous on Oct 11, 2011


Not bad.

Posthuman on Oct 11, 2011


Well that just looks like some good fun, I'll be there.

you all forgot 1 AMAZING BIT...... ... THE HULK...... WOOOOO!

stephen on Oct 11, 2011


What a cast!  I know Downey, Jr. dominates the trailer, but Whedon isn't gonna waste people like Ruffalo and Evans.  I just saw Thor (I know, I know), and was mighty impressed with Hemsworth. He has that Errol Flynn charisma that I wasn't expecting at all. Johannson is gonna kick butt. And Cobie Smuthers, too.  Whew!!!

I'm gonna watch it with my eyes. Looks pretty fun. Need to stop the Nyoooooooooough, CUT, Nyooooooooooooough, CUT, Nyoooooooooooooough editing though, he he. Just kidding bring on the spandex.

Crapola on Oct 11, 2011


I had to wait all day to get off work to watch this and there was already 67 comments haha (some record in the first couple of hours?). Trailer was badass! Cast is badass! The movie is gonna be badass!

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


I know all you virgin fanboys still living at home, have closed your bedroom doors and are furiously jacking off to this. But it looks meh. Whedon is a hack.

Guest007 on Oct 11, 2011


If calling other people "fanboys" makes you feel cool, then sure. I dig the trailer. & I'm pretty sure you'll be in a theater watching the movie when it releases too.

IyaKid on Oct 11, 2011


No matter how cool this looks or will become, the idea itself of an Avenger movie coming our way will always be more exciting then the movie itself..

RDG on Oct 11, 2011


Truer words can't be written, except that water is liquid. 

Quanah on Oct 11, 2011


Most likely.

John on Oct 14, 2011


Why won't it play? :/

Enzo on Oct 11, 2011


Yeah great trailer but what was with captain America being a dick to everyone and fighting with Thor?

Dan3659 on Oct 11, 2011


yea i really wanna know what the heck was going on with why thor was smashing his hammer on capt's shield? i thought maybe capt was testing how strong and durable his shield metal was against thor's unearthly hammer power....just a thought

JBrotsis on Oct 11, 2011


cap was probably meeting thor for the first time so they were exchanging blows....

Croniccris on Oct 12, 2011


if i woke up 70 years in the future and everybody i cared for was dead i would be a prick too...

Croniccris on Oct 12, 2011


he's probably a prick because he still wears clothes from the 40's and everyone makes fun of him for it haha

JBrotsis on Oct 12, 2011


LOL! I feel the same way Cron!lol! I'd be a huge, mad at everyone prick!! And to make matters worse, that chick he fell in love with at the end of Capt. America is probably dead or old as hell! So of course it's gonna take him time for him to get used to the future!

jah p on Oct 12, 2011


i feel like in regards to capt having lost his girl due to "dead or old as hell", since iron man and thor have "girlfriends", i have the hesitation that capt and black widow would get together for various reasons (he's the leader, both single, he's lonely without her, etc.). I just hope there's no scene in any of the movies where the girlfriends of all the avengers get together and have a book club meeting or some bullshit haha.

JBrotsis on Oct 13, 2011


looks good but it takes a group to knock of the Batman as # anticipated move .  like it but don't love it.

Horseflesh on Oct 11, 2011


Man, things blowing up is so cool....

Totylertarian on Oct 11, 2011


This movie will be good. But this trailer looks way too polished. Like a patent leather boot.

DAVIDPD on Oct 11, 2011


*sadface* No Bana.

untricky on Oct 11, 2011


Its the summer kickoff flick. I'm there. But not in 3D

ur_babys_daddy on Oct 11, 2011


When is Black Panther and ANT MAN going to be introduced? but still looks Awesome!!!

OZ1952 on Oct 11, 2011


Black Panther will be introduced in the Superbowl trailer next February.

Anonymous on Oct 11, 2011


Black Widow... not feeling it. The new haircut and the new workout routine is hurting. She looks partied out. Ruffalo looks as comfortable as Don Cheadle was playing War Machine and Captain Planet. I can't take Loki seriously. Blowing up cars on the streets. Really? That's it? I've seen far worse events on the news of greater magnitude more worthy of the Avengers. 

ChrisBatty on Oct 11, 2011


Better than avatar?))))))) U r funny. This movie will be forgotten in a few months, but avatar is still huge. And by the way it has moral, it shows the problem of current world, but that movie is just next movie with famous actors and special effects. They are totally different!

Well that was a nice appetizer and I'm ready for 2nd course. And I'd like a seat by a much hot air in here.

Jimmy Love on Oct 12, 2011


Looks great although not to happy to see Sam Jackson in this. 

fasterpetey on Oct 12, 2011


was not feeling the NIN song. was uber cheesy.

Spiderman on Oct 12, 2011


Looks like a lot of fun. Cinematography is a bit plain, but the Marvel movies generally are like that. I have faith Joss will kick some ass.

SV7 on Oct 13, 2011


this is end of the movie business

zzzz on Oct 15, 2011


HAHAHAHAHA! MUHAHAHAHAHA! The dialog has Joss Whedon stamped all over it especially Stark talking to Banner. Classic Whedon! "Whedon is a hack." - Anonymous ROFLMAOCopter PWNED!!! If you don't get Whedon, Farscape, or're lost.

Trestle on Oct 19, 2011


ERRR... It looks ok.

Jackmooney5 on Oct 22, 2011


I think that with Loki there, they will be gearing towards an Ultimate 2-esque showdown?Now that would be awesome. Anyways it is a thrill to see Hawkeye on screen

Vishful Thinker on Oct 27, 2011


This is great Trailer 🙂
