Comics geek alert: New Avengers movie trailer hits the geekosphere
Marvel Comics just released the new trailer for its upcoming Avengers movie, giving all us comic geeks something to pretend we're not watching on our work computers for the rest of the day.
The movie features an assembly of Marvel superheroes featured in past movies, including Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America and new addition Mark Ruffalo as scientist Bruce Banner who becomes the "big green rage monster" The Incredible Hulk.
Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner is super archer Hawkeye and trash talker extraordinaire Sam Jackson is Nick Fury, the superspy who brings them all together.
Geeks so looked forward to this event, they had a countdown for the first real onscreen look at a movie Entertainment Weekly called "THe Ultimate Superhero Movie." It's the tentpole movie in a summer that will be a nerd's dream with the final Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises and the Spider-Man reboot on deck.
Until then, enjoy the clip below, which includes a peek at the new Hulk and the crisis they all face -- an attack by Thor's brother Loki, the god of trickery and sorcery.
