[UPDATE: Check Out a Good look at Captain America's New Costume!]
At this point, it’s not as if the vast majority of moviegoers need a reason to see Marvel’s The Avengers. People are either comic book fans who will be piling into theaters for the ‘event of a lifetime’ (you’ll know them – look for the costumes) – or they’re among the millions who have followed one, a few, or all of the solo character films that led us to this team-up event. Neither camp is exactly in need of coercion to see this flick.
However, there are those who somehow remain unaware, unconvinced, or indifferent about this little film that writer/director Joss Whedon (Serenity) and his all-star cast have put together. So, as to remind us again why their movie is going to be epically awesome, Marvel has released a new, minute-long, TV Spot for The Avengers.
What more is there to say? This spot takes its time to show us how Captain America (Chris Evans) will be at the center of an Avengers team – Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansoon), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) - that will be laying the smackdown on the nefarious Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his mysterious alien armada.
What more do we need to see? The last Avengers trailer gave us enough story (as if the solo films didn’t), and some pretty epic action sequences, to boot. Featurettes and clips have proven that Whedon has nailed some pretty solid character moments and relationships, so there’s that to look forward to as well. This latest spot is just overkill, really.
Basically: the turkey has been cooked fat and juicy, and the smell is just wafting all through the house right now. Time to eat!
BONUS: While we wait at the table, though, check out this pic of Cap – his costume looks pretty sweet in this one:
