With a superhero team that includes Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk, next summer's The Avengers is the most guaranteed summer blockbuster in recent years. Here's the teaser trailer.
Forget the mini-montage trailer after the credits during Captain America: The First Avenger, here is the first official teaser trailer for arguably the biggest movie of next summer, well aside from The Dark Knight Rises of course.
When Thor antagonist Loki brings the Earth to its knees due to an unseen (in this trailer, at least) force, everyone's favourite eye-patched leader of S.H.I.E.L.D, Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury, assembles the finest group of 'Avengers' to protect our world. Pfft, where was he when the script was stolen and leaked online earlier this year?
If you're unfamiliar with the Avengers team, expect Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, replacing Ed Norton) and the stars of Marvel's cinematic ventures this summer, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans).
Also part of the squad are the decidedly-less-super combinaton of Iron Man 2's Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson, fully clothed and posing beside a mirror unfortunately) and Thor's Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
Take a look at the trailer above and prepare to get excited - very excited. The Avengers opens in Irish cinemas to kick off the summer blockbuster season on May 4, 2012.
