To be frank with you, I’m kind of on and off about this movie. I mean this whole idea of jam-packing a friggin’ boatload of superheroes into one movie is worrisome. Just how in the heck are they gonna pull this off?? But after reading more about this project, especially seeing that Josh Whedon seems to have a good grip on the storytelling (Per Castor’s post, The Avengers will be told from Captain America’s point of view), I’m willing to give this movie the benefit of the doubt.
Well now this new trailer actually gets me all excited about this one. Check it out and let me know what you think:
Loki: “I have an army.”
Stark : “We have a Hulk.”
Say what you will but that facetious last part out of the whole trailer is my favorite part! I LOVE Tom Hiddleston’s Loki for one, plus Robert Downey Jr.’s snarky-ness is always a joy to watch. Tony Stark’s surely gonna have tons of fun one-liners in this movie! I just think that if Whedon just not take this whole thing too seriously, more in the spirit of the first Iron Man, it should be a massively enjoyable action flick.
Btw, on January 31st, Marvel Studios sponsored a Global Tweet Chat where fans can chat with Whedon and cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg and Tom Hiddleston via Twitter. That’s awesome, I wish I had known about it but most likely I gotta work at that hour 😦 Screenrant has some of the Q&A from the event here if you’re interested. As I’m a big fan of Loki, I’m pretty excited to see him answer this question:
For TH: Might we see a more mischievous (rather than mostly just evil) Loki in the The Avengers?
TH: ENTIRELY. More mischievous. More evil. More hubristic. More delusional. More damaged. More badass.
All right, bring it on team! May 4th can’t come soon enough!
What say you folks? Are you excited for this movie?
