The first real trailer for The Avengers was released today on iTunes. Other than Loki, it doesn't show much of this threat that the Avengers are meant to be fighting, but villains are only part of a good Avengers story, and this trailer suggests that the team's dysfunction will be as important as the foe they battle. I've grabbed a few screenshots. They are after the jump.
The trailer opens with explosions and sounds suspiciously like Transformers. Note to the filmmakers: Please avoid that.
The first really new thing in the trailer is this presumably-a-Quinjet. It must be a Quinjet. It's obviously about to crash.
still in the Mark VI, so maybe he won't be updating the suit for every movie. This is a different suit than was shown in the concept art, so this could be preliminary CGI, but I doubt it. There is no reason for a new suit, but at the same time, I'm hoping that Iron Man will bust out a Hulkbuster suit at some point.
this picture suggests he'll be the pilot of the the aforementioned Quinjet.
And here's the Hulk. Obviously he's going to be CG so they don't have much ready, but it's nice to see him make an appearance, and the exchange between Banner and Stark is absoultly the reason Joss Whedon is the right director for this film.io9 has there own screencaps here, so you can check them out if you want more.
