‘The Avengers’ Trailer Parody: It’s Basically ‘Iron Man 3′

The Avengers Movie Logo The Avengers Trailer Parody: Its Basically Iron Man 3

It was only a matter of time until we got a (quality) parody of The Avengers trailer, and as usual, the Internet hath provided.

Bryan Harley and a few of his pals at DumbDrum.com got together to shoot their own version of the theatrical trailer for The Avengers, which they hope to enter in the upcoming Swede Fest 8.

Inspired by the Michel Gondry film Be Kind Rewind, Swede Fest showcases films that have been “sweded” – i.e., recreated by amateurs. Like the protagonists in Gondry’s film, these “sweded” works often feature hilariously low production values, sharp observation about what makes a film cool (or less than cool), and a general sense of good fun being had by people who like movies.

With that all said, see what parts of The Avengers trailer Harley and Co. poke fun at by watching the trailer below:


Jabs at Sam Jackson’s potty mouth, the Nine Inch Nails soundtrack, Scarlett Johansson’s hotness, Thor’s questionable intelligence – AND a DC vs. Marvel quip, to boot? Yep, these guys have nailed pretty much everything. My personal favorites were the well-fed Bruce Banner (in mockery of the stockier Mark Ruffalo) and a blow-up doll pulling off Black Widow’s patented scissor-clutch takedown move.

Do you think this parody is worthy of a “swede” award?

You can watch the real Avengers assemble in theaters on May 4, 2012.

  1. It was okay. I was impressed with their cardboard city. That and the trailer was well edited. But I didn’t laugh at their jokes. The Iron Man 3 thing got on my nerves a little.

    It’s whimsically voices a valid concern shared across the fan community, but nothing that should be taken too far. We have a teaser on our hands, nothing more at this point. I’m sure the guys were just trying to be funny, so I’m not too bent out of shape over it. Just, not amused. The Hulk thing made me laugh, as well as the Thor thing. The Justice League lyric was also kind of funny.

    • I meant to say that I didn’t laugh at all of their jokes. It was kind of 50/50.

  2. Awesome luved it

  3. I think the people that hated this “parody” have a good, dare i say great sense of humor, the so called “hilarious parody” wasn’t funny at all. Sure the people that made and appeared in this TRYED to be funny, but they weren’t.

  4. Although I can see where they were going with it, but I just didn’t think it was all that funny. Sorry.

  5. Some dudes try to have some fun and you people crap all over it. So much unnecessary negativity it’s just pathetic.

    • Funny I was just thinking to much positivity that’s unnecessary and undeserving.

      Are we only allowed to express our opinion if we like something? should every comment from now on be “I agree” or “That’s Funny” on every post?

      • Yeah, you’re right Daniel. What the Internet definitely needs is more people bitching about stuff.

        • I always find it funny when some one complains about people complaining.

          As if more complaining is some how gonna stop the problem.

          1. It’s more complaining it’s self so sort of defeats the purpose.

          2. All you will achieve is to get the people who complained to complain about you.

          People stop complaining when they have nothing to say. When you start crying about them not sharing your opinion and being vocal about it you only give them more to talk about so next time you want the complainers to stop talking. Try keeping your mouth shut and letting it die down on it’s own. Other wise you simply add fuel to the fire.

          Then again the internet is a safe and free place so do what ever makes you feel better. Enjoy your high horse to bad it’s fake.

  6. Daniel F. Quit Complaining. lol

    • I’ll pass

  7. After watching the preview several times, i believe this will be a huge disappointment. It’s going to be short of 2 hours and they’re going to change story-lines and bring in villains that dont belong and shut
    the bed on this movie.

  8. Sorry guys, I did not see any “quality” in that. Just my opinion.

  9. This looks ridiculously awful. I&#039m confused my Thor&#039s powers. Every scene from Thor seemed like he had a new one and each one was better. And what the hell is a guy with a shield, another with a bow and arrow, and a chick in spandex going to do against flying saucers and monsters, or whatever the heck they were /
