Teaser For ‘The Avengers’ Super Bowl XLVI Commercial

The Avengers Russian Trailer Loki Teaser For The Avengers Super Bowl XLVI Commercial

Believe it or not, The Avengers will be in theaters around the world in just over three months. Despite the proximity of its release, fans still haven’t seen much from the movie outside of The Avengers trailer which only showcased characters introduced in Marvel Studios’ previous films that set the foundation for the team-up epic.

Director Joss Whedon, joined by fan-favorites Clark Gregg, Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, took to Twitter today to partake in a half-hour online event, answering questions about The Avengers from fans. The event closed with the following sneak peek at the The Avengers Super Bowl XLVI Commercial with this short, but sweet teaser.

In the marketing so far, a big deal has been made by the choice words spoken by the villainous Loki when he refers to his “army.” For years, rumors have focused on the idea that the shape-shifting Skrulls will form the bulk of the opposition that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes must engage in fisticuffs with.

But rumors are rumors and Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige says the Skrulls won’t be in the film, while teasing another rumor about another previously-seen villain potentially making a big appearance.

Whoever these invaders are, they are shown clearly attacking downtown streets and chasing Iron Man in this very brief teaser. Hopefully even more of them is shown in the full 30-second Super Bowl spot this weekend.

So, who do you think Loki’s army is now? From that one brief shot of them flying, it appears that Loki is in the lead vehicle, riding it like a space bike – take a look at this sharpened still from the teaser, where you can make how his green cape, golden armor, and horned helmet.:

The vehicles look similar in aesthetic from the crashed alien wreckage we saw in The Avengers set photo, along with that odd and mysterious super soaker alien weapon.

In other news, The Avengers is confirmed to release in IMAX 3D, on the same day it opens wide in regular theaters.

The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgard. It is of course written and directed by Joss Whedon, opening in theaters on May 4, 2012.

  1. It wudnt be a surprise if Odin comes down to earth probably for a short cameo, to lend a helping hand, knowing the fact Thor and Loki are at war. Maybe a short cameo by him, or maybe he mite send his asgardian warriors down, as they have protected earth before/ and as well they are sort of guardians of earth as we hv learnt from the movie Thor.

  2. Went and checked that site out. Never knew it exsisted. Cool. A ton of info. And I must say. I think they are right.

        OMG The Knights are the only ones to have personalized riding craft?

        The Leader has/had them.
        Atlanteans has/had them.

        Heck I even think there were some on the planet Sakaar during Planet Hulk.

        The Ironman villain “Dreadknight rides the “Hellhorse”, a mutated bat-winged flying horse that was genetically engineered by Victoria Frankenstein from the winged horse that was used by Nathan Garrett.”

        The High Evolutionary is just to obscure. However I have no issue eating crow…..
