This is the third trailer for The Avengers. Earlier today, we posted the new poster for the film, and now there is a brand new trailer to go along with it. All your favorite Marvel comic characters in one film! It is almost too much for a comic nerd to handle! This film has been teased for a while in other films in the Marvel film franchise, and it is finally upon us. Like the previous trailers for the film, Loki from Thor still looks to be the bad guy in the film. I am questioning what the big alien thing is at the end of the trailer and where that came from. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. Jackson. Joss Whedon wrote and directed the film. As an aside, Chris Hemsworth will be in at least three films this year: The Cabin in the Woods (also a Joss Whedon film), Snow White and the Huntsman, and The Avengers. This guy came from a small part in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek to a massive star. Kudos to Chris.
