Last week, we heard that Joss Whedon, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark Gregg would be hosting a Global Twitter Chat for Marvel’s upcoming The Avengers tonight. We also heard that with the chat, we’d be getting a teaser for the film’s upcoming TV spot at this weekend’s Superbowl, and we now have that awesome video to share with you!
The TV spot itself is set to be a thirty-second video, and this ten-second tease (seventeen seconds all in, technically) is just so damn good, with some brilliant new footage that we didn’t get in the ridiculously awesome first trailer at the end of last year.
You can catch up on all the questions and answers from the chat, which Samuel L. Jackson also took part in, over at The Avengers’ Twitter, with writer-director Joss Whedon answering questions there, and Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston, and Samuel L. Jackson answering their questions on their own respective Twitters.
Whedon is directing from a script he’s co-written with Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk), and all of our favourite superhero cast from the Marvel Universe will be reprising their roles from recent years, including Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr., with Paul Bettany returning as JARVIS), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, taking over from Edward Norton), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
The Avengers will be with us in 3D on 27th April, a date which should be imprinted in your mental calendar – if it’s not, get out your diary and set it down now, because it’s a date you’re going to want to remember. For now, here’s your ten-second tease. Be sure to check back at the weekend to see the full thirty-second spot. It looks set to be immense.
