The Avengers Russian Trailer Loki The Avengers Russian Trailer Assembles with New Footage

Marvel is back again with another international sneak peek at their upcoming superhero mash-up, The Avengers, this time offering a Russian voice-over and, once again, bits and pieces of new footage.

While the footage here is very similar to the German Avengers trailer (which also featured new clips), the new preview does offer a few notable moments of video – specifically a solid shot of Loki’s grittier Avengers look.

Preview marketing for 2012 has reached a fever pitch with tremendous buzz surrounding several notable trailers. First, The Dark Knight Rises prologue wooed moviegoers into paying premium IMAX prices for their Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol tickets. However, those who weren’t fortunate enough to see the film in a 70mm IMAX format were instead treated to a new full-length preview for Nolan’s final Bat-installment. Only a few short days later, Peter Jackson unveiled a first look at his return trip to Middle Earth in the form of The Hobbit trailer. Then, after three days of countdown teasing, Ridley Scott unveiled the first trailer for his mysterious sci-fi project, Prometheus, which is expected to serve as a prequel of sorts to his 1979 film, Alien.

Check out The Avengers Russian trailer below:

As mentioned, the trailer is somewhat of a mash-up of footage between the German and American versions of The Avengers trailer but does give audiences a couple of new Loki-focused shots. In general, the trailer serves as a fun tease for Tom Hiddleston fans who are no doubt interested to see what the actor does with the character – now that the overarching story has allowed him to fully embrace the role of evil trickster.

The Avengers unites Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as they unite to battle Thor’s evil brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the extraterrestrial threat he unleashes upon the Earth.

  1. i dont understand russian, but how comes that every sentence sounds like a death threat ^^

    • Kahless likes this comment. :-D

      • Lol…Thanks for the laugh and a Happy new year !

    • what’s with you americans and this “every sentence like a death threat/ swears”. It’s already getting boring, or do you actually mean it, because in that case I wouldn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  2. Cool.
    I still don’t get the whole voice-over thing though… (why not just do subtitles if necessarily).
    Still, if I had to compare all the trailers released so far, I’d say:
    1. The Avengers’ German Trailer
    2. The Avengers’ English Trailer
    3. The Avengers’ Russian Trailer

    • While that does work, you have to admit that reading and watching is not quite as simple as listening and watching. ;)

      The only thing I would prefer subtitled is Anime (American voices NEVER seem to be as cool as the original Japanese ones)

      • Agreed.

      • Completely disagreed, just watch Naruto one time in English – the voices just sound too awesome to switch back to Japanese.

  3. And Loki’s suit makes a comeback.

    Life is good.

  4. ROFL Sammuel L’s voice is hilarious!

  5. I understood exactly two phrases: “oh my god” (Samuel L. Jackson) and “thank-you” (whoever that guy playing mini-hulk is.

    I’m surprisingly psyched about this movie! I’ve enjoyed all the “preparatory” films to lesser and greater degrees. And this certainly looks like a great popcorn flick.

  6. There’s something odd about hearing cap speaking russian. It’s like the old “What if… ?” marvel comic. What if… the russians won the cold war and when they thawed cap he had to learn russian?

    • hehehe, yeah! for a second there, I was actually wondering if they call him Captain Russia.

    • How weird would it have been to see ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ with German voice-overs?
      (Granted, the Red Skull would probably have been cooler…)

        • The voices themselves aren’t out of place or anything, but the Allies… all speaking German? – a little weird ;)

      • They should do that more often in movies. Do what Quentin Tarantino did with ‘Inglourious Basterds’, jut have everyone speak in their native languages and subtitle it in English. I hate it when the Russian or German characters can speak perfect English.

        • Worse: I particularly hate when they have them speak English.. but with a fake accent of whatever nationality they’re supposed to have.

          Like the German commander talking to his troops in – presumably GERMAN – but on screen doing so in English, with a heavy fake German accent. UGH, drives me batty.

          Are audiences really incapable of reading subtitles?

          If it’s well done, subtitles for this sort of thing can work perfectly and don’t have to be distracting. You just avoid having your audience need to read subtitles during heavy action scenes, or scenes that really require attention on any specific point on the screen.

          Don’t have your “foreign language” characters do a Robin Williams routine in another language and try to subtitle that. Cocaine and subtitles don’t mix. Pacing. The secret to good subtitle work.

  7. How many cars were killed making this movie!?!?

    • Too many :(
      –But hey, if they blew up 30 cars and one of them happened to be a Toyota Prius, then I say it’s a good day’s work ;) – anything to get rid of a Prius…

  8. Is loki having a bad hair day?

  9. Disney/Marvel are releasing these “Sizzle Reels in a smart marketing way. They expand on what was proviously shown but haven’t really exposed any new material.

    The different languages for other countries are a given..
    Just have to wait for the BIGGIE during the SUPERBOWL!

  10. Looks good, still waiting to see who or what they are really fighting.

  11. nice

  12. find out more about real Scarlett by typing Scarlett Johansson clone in Google search bar and you would see much more then in The Island movie..

  13. LOL I had no idea Captain America Spoke Russian and German. I thought he only spoke English lol

  14. ”I have an army.”
    ”We have a Hulk!”

    • “We have a Hulk, two assassins, a demi-god, a super-soldier and… me”

      • “We have a Hulk, two assassins, an alien, a super-soldier and… me”


        Demigod is a half(?) god BTW. If anything Thor would be a full god.

        (just busting your chops.. ;) )

  15. In terms of box office gross for 2012 i think The Hobbit will be#1 closely followed by Avengers and the Dark Knight Rises. I expect both The Hobbit and The Avengers to gross over $1 billion dollars total.

    • This article doesn’t really have anything to do with what you just said dude ;)
      But what the heck…
      I think TDKR will get the most cash, followed by The Avengers and then The Hobbit. (But it’ll be impossible to make an educated guess until we have more material to base our opinions upon… IMO)

  16. All I have to say is it’s nice to see Black Widow actually speaking Russian.

  17. lok iwas the worst villian to pick for this hands down, he feels more like a timid, frail, younger brother you never wanted than anything close to an actual supervillian…god i hope spiderman makes an appearance thats this movies only saving grace.
