Are you excited for Marvel Studios' upcoming films? Are you having a tough time waiting three more years to see the most ultimate team-up film of all time in the form of the Avengers?
Well, here’s a little dosage of Avengers action to keep you calm while you wait. We have for you today a little fan-made trailer for the Avengers movie that features characters from a variety of blockbuster Marvel films, meaning it’s extremely off from what (and who) we’ll be seeing come 2012.
Watch and enjoy:
I guess it's more of a Mighty Avengers movie than the Avengers. You probably noticed footage taken from a ton of different films including Transformers 1 & 2, X-Men, Spider-Man 2 & 3, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Iron Man and Fantastic Four 1 & 2 among others.
As for the content, it was well-organized for the most part and I like how the beginning hinted at a story revolving Hulk as the villain. This idea was widely speculated to be used for the real Avengers film but I hope it’s not. After The Incredible Hulk and seeing so much of that story focused on Ed Norton’s Banner learning control of himself, it wouldn’t make sense and would be a weak story to feature him as an uncontrollable villainous character. Let Norton join the team and have him work together with Iron Man, Cap and Thor on something better.
In the later parts of the trailer we see the focus shift to Spider-Man’s black costume and Venom which doesn't fit and doesn’t work well with the Avengers idea, especially after Spidey 3. It partially took away from the story the trailer was attempting to tease earlier.
No reason to be overly critical though, I think this is pretty cool for what it is and the fun really kicks in when when the music picks up in the last quarter of the video. I always dig good fan-made vids of high and thought this was worthy of sharing, especially to get your thinking of what's upcoming on Marvel's plate.
What would of made this trailer blow my mind is if they incorporated clips from the 1990 Captain America film starring Matt Salinger in that amazing costume. Well, there's always next time.
It's too bad that none of the crossovers of this video can actually happen in the movie world as the characters' film rights are scattered across several different studios including Sony, Fox and Marvel.
What do you think of the trailer and if there were no limits, what cross-over would you like to see from modern comic book movies?
The real Avengers movie opens May 4, 2012.
