the avengers movie logo The Avengers Teaser Trailer From Comic Con

The most exciting and fun panel to be at during Comic-Con 2010 was without a doubt the Marvel Studios panel for The First Avenger: Captain America and Thor. Not only were we treated to a Q&A session with the entire casts of both flicks, including directors Kenneth Branagh and Joe Johnston, but Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige introduced to us, the 6000 screaming fans, the entire core cast of The Avengers.

Before our favorite superstar actors came out to show us their allegiance to playing the ultimate team-up of superhero characters, we were treated to a little teaser trailer for The Avengers narrated by Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson.

The Avengers teaser is now available online and while it doesn’t show any footage from the film (it doesn’t begin shooting until early next year), it was an epic moment when the lights came down after we thought the panel was over.

See what we saw, before we met the cast of Marvel Studios’ The Avengers:

Here’s Nick Fury’s monologue transcribed:

There came a day

A day unlike any other

When earth’s mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat

To fight the foes no single superhero could withstand

On that day, The Avengers were born.

Awesome, right? It’s like a geek’s dream come true. They’re actually bringing together all of biggest of superheroes from the comics, into their own movies then together into this, The Avengers. The logo design and intro comes from Ahmet Ahmet and Peter Frankfurt of Imaginary Forces who made it for Paramount Pictures.

Unfortunately, the one scene director Joe Johnston was able to put together for Captain America in just a few days time for Comic-Con hasn’t found its way online yet, but we did get a glimpse at the Thor trailer.

What do you think of what we’ve seen so far for Marvel Studios’ franchise plans?

The Joss Whedon-directed Avengers film stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Clark Gregg.

  1. Hmmmmm… Still skeptical about the film, I feel like it’s way too many heroes converging and too many plots to mix in and too many foes to fight, but hey, who am I to complain? Joss Whedon’s on the project!
    I’m also pleasantly surprised this film is actually going to get off the ground.
    Here’s to hoping this film gets done the RIGHT way, not the Hollywood way.

  2. Everyone complains about rights going back to Marvel for X-Men and Spider-Man, but that does give Marvel more time and patience to make sure these movies have quality. With something like the Avengers, quality is more important than quantity. I think Raimi putting Bruce Campbell in the Spider-Man movies was freaking awesome, and the X-Men movies were cool and well, a little Foxy. But, hey, Fox put out the early X-Men animated series and I respect them for that. If Marvel had the rights to every single character it’d be a three ring circus and the Avengers could be spoiled. Whether the movie puts a smile on that face and has to carve it up on there, it will change things.

    • One would suspect with the MARVEL / DISNEY merger there would be more time for faithful and accurate adaptations because of DISNEY’S vast studio resources.

      I have no respect for Sony and Fox Abattoirs.

  3. FunFacts:
    1. The greatest superheroes are in the JusticeLeague.
    2. NickFury was only made black so Samuel L. Jackson could play him.
    3. Samuel L. Jackson isn’t a good character for these kinda movies and he sucks badly in them, despite being one of my favorite actors.
    4. I’m a fan of these movies but i’m not looking foreward to it
    5. I hope this movie doesn’t suck ass too bad!

    • The fun facts are so true. For the Ultimates line Marvel did R rated versions of their staple characters. Nick Fury got turned into Sam Jackson. Not saying that’s a bad thing, but I agree, Jackson doesn’t seem as motivated to giving Fury all he can give.

      Anyway, yaawwwn, when is Justice League coming out again?

    • Define “greatest” because DC is having one helluva time trying to get characters to make movies from…

      ps. That’s subjective.

      Nick fury was modeled after Sam L. back in 2001, YEARS before Iron Man even entered production.

      • Just saying… Batman is better than ANY of Marvel’s characters.

        • What a fallacious throw away statement.

          Batman is a great character as are many of MARVE’S characters.

          Are we in high school or something and having a DC versus MARVEL debate? How childish.

          Just enjoy the characters man regardless of where they come from.

    • 1. Hugely debatable when you’re a pimply 14 year old nerd. Get over it. It’s all subjective.
      2. Almost sounds like a racist statement.
      3. SLJ isn’t a good character for these kind of movies, but one of your favorites actors – Contradiction
      4. A fan of these movies but not looking forward to them – Another contradiction.
      5. Hopeful contradiction

  4. OOH1 makes me all; excited like after i sluggede down Starbucks triple shot black espresso straight up! want more!!OOH! give me more trailers please!! LMAO!!!

  5. Have no problem with S.J playing fury ..could be worse it could be David hasselhoff! He was horrid nick fury.You guys are sour on everything..I am fan of both DC and marvel..bith are equally enjoyable..you guys are bitching too much.like on the rag! Just wait and see what comes out.you may be surprised.

    • The woman is, of course, always right and this instance is no different.

      There is a ‘hero’ for everyone, take your pick and stop with the playground whining.

      (I personally believe Jackson’s being black adds to the character.
      “Oh I’m sorry, did I break your concentration?”)

  6. What common foe?

    Vic? A little help, please.

    • joeslankas,

      I don’t know, sorry – folks in general are assuming the Skrull, but that’s speculation based on the comics and coming up with a foe formidable enough to require the formation of The Avengers.


  7. Rob. Sorry

  8. Vic
    OMG u are soooo cool^^ u always respond when someone calls u!!!! Thats awsome man;)

  9. Actually, pencil, they created Ultimate Nick Fury in Sam J’s image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_Nick_Fury

  10. Nooooooo…its deleteddddddddddd

  11. It’s gotta be Thanos if the Infinity Gauntlet is involved.

    I hope Ultron shows up.

    • Not absolutely necessary Skylord it will appear in the “Thor” movie first and then ‘maybe’ “Avengers.” Remember Odin had this thing at one point so this may or may not have Thanos in it. It’s not a bad idea to be sure. I can imagine the IG falling into Thanos hands at the end of “Avengers.” That would certainly get all the fans back for a second one, no?

  12. Uh?Guys..I’m quite sure it will not be the Scrulls,,The Scrolls were villains to the fantastic 4 universal im quite sure of it..Unless sometime down the line Uncle Stan decide to do a crossover storylines..not sure..But i think the antagonist will be from some other source either terrestrial, or extra terrestrial or could be sew foe froman alternate Universe..Hint “Thor’s” Involvement.

    • Your right Rogue-x it was a cross over called ‘Secret Invasion’ back in 08. However its seeds are in a prior series called ‘Secret War’ in 04. Which makes me wonder how they will proceed? Don’t deny it could make an awesome story that you might get just a hint of in the first “Avengers” movie, with someone like Loki and company being the threat as the front story. Could take six movies to fully realize! Would be a premoe show if they go through with it, but might hang in the ballance on just how well this first movie does! Fans better see it 3 or 4 times in theaters…

  13. Ultron????????

  14. ITS DELETED!!!

    This is just what happened with the THOR trailer! Guess I’m just not quick enough!


    • i know!! i havent gotten to see any of the trailers-.-

  15. In regards the the villain(s) of the movie.While I’m not up on my Avengers lore,I’ve never liked the Skrulls and have always thought of them to be more of a nuisance than a real threat,but I’m sure someone will probably tell me different.Plus,I always thought that they were The Fantastic 4′s villains and not the Avengers.

    Anyway,is it just me,or wouldn’t Thanos just “have” to be the main villain,unless they are trying to save him for the sequel?Let’s face it,outside of Galactus,who would actually be The Avengers “greatest” threat?Definitely not the Skrulls,nor Mandarin or who ever else.If you have them under the lead of Thanos,then that’s ok,but in the end,it all really comes down to him and The Infinity Gauntlet.

  16. thanks i like the cross over idea..i am going to have to go online search for those episodes..i missed that some how..thanks “Old Man”

    • Your welcome Rogue-x anytime.

      Keep Rantin…

  17. Is it me or does the Avengers logo look so much like the fantastic 4 logo..I’m sure its quite similar?

    • It’s sort of similar but the encircled number 4 is more of a silver metallic color.

  18. Damn it, video was deleted. Gonna have to find it somewhere else. I’m so pumped for Thor after seeing the trailer and Captain America is just awesome. The Avengers movie is gonna be kick ass.

  19. I have to agree with others that the Skrulls would be a lame choice simply for the fact they are one of the Fantastic 4′s primary reoccurring foes. Also don’t forget they ARE rebooting F4 so the Skrulls should remain as source material and not used up (in case they get F4 right this time. Would also like to see them do Glactus R I G H T and not be a big ball of silly gas ;) There are MUCH better foes for an entire Superhero group to be fighting.

    As others have mentioned, Thanos is the most logical choice. Better to top off an epic cast with an EPIC villian! Pull out all the plugs and really solidify this show as a blockbuster. There are plenty of other things they can do later but they really need to hit this one out of the park.

    One other thing to remember that makes for a better case for Thanos being the bad guy is the Red Skull is searching for the Cosmic Cube in Capt. America. That combined with the Infinity Gauntlet are the exact recipe used in the comics as the two primary objects Thanos is seeking. Seems like a lot of trouble to include those two items in “prequels” and then to not utilize them.

    Would also love to See Ultron in there somewhere because that gives them an inroad into introducing one of my fave heros, Vision.

  20. How about Galactus no dust cloud please something big purple and hungry!!

  21. Do people seriously think that a gigantic, planet-sized guy wearing purple would not be laugh out loud funny in a live action movie?


    • yea it would be Vic but, did the Ultimate Galactus was building size locusts they can use that!!

    • I don’t know Vic nobody seemed to mind much when Dr. Manhattan was as big as a building!?<* I think I've read about every complaint to be thought of but that regarding "Watchmen."

      In most stories he's smaller than Manhattan was in the movie. "Judge me by my size do you, Hmm???" ;)

      • @the old man,

        Point taken.



  22. I’m sorry, but say what you like about Fantastic Four 2, but they did Galactus right.
    I agree with Vic, in that this is the only way to do him, since a faithful version of the character could not be taken seriously on the big screen.

    Silver Surfer wasn’t half bad either ;)
