Tuesday’s Top Trailer: The Avengers

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

The Avengers – Opening May 4, 2012

I’d say that almost everyone with even a passing interest in comic books or superhero movies has seen this trailer already. I was excited about this movie when I saw the slight sneak peek at the very end of “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and this full-fledged preview ups my anticipation considerably. Bringing together the lead characters from three highly exciting films - "Iron Man," "Captain America: The First Avenger," and "Thor" - and pairing them with three equally awesome characters - the Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow - is the recipe for one entirely thrilling and superb blockbuster. The fact that this thing is being directed by Joss Whedon makes it infinitely cooler, and I can only hope that it's a roaring success so that the world can be privy to a new cinematic chapter in the "Firefly" saga. We've had glimpses of what the interactions between all of these characters could be like, namely in snippets from previous Marvel films, and the trailer offers some similar moments, particularly the ever-sarcastic Tony Stark telling Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner that he loves when he loses control and turns into the Hulk. There's so much about this film that could work so well, and I'm just hopeful that it's as good as it looks. It's certain to be a hit, and May couldn't come soon enough.
