As if a massive amount of clips haven’t been enough, Marvel continues more and more to push The Avengers as we get close to the release date a little over two weeks from now. Tonight, the company has done it again, but unlike a clip from this morning, they’ve released an all-new featurette that gives us a behind the scenes look at the filming of the upcoming team-up, as well as insight from Joss Whedon, Robert Downey Jr., and more.
We don’t see too much new footage here, but we do get a few quick glimpses, such as Loki pushing Cap out of a window, which was previously revealed thanks to set videos. Other than that, it’s really about putting the story into perspective here, which is what the actors and director do beautifully. At only one minute long, it is a bit short, but after everything that’s been released already, it’s easily adding up onto the pile.
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
“Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.
Starring Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Colbie Smulders, Clark Gregg, and more, The Avengers hits theaters on May 4th.
