New Avengers trailer gets us all very, very excited…

February 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Of all the movies coming out this summer, heck this year, The Avengers is the one we’re getting really, really, reallllllllllllllllllllllllly excited about. Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Nick Fury, Hawkeye all under the direction of Joss Whedon… oh, my.

Well today has been an odd day for the Avengers movie. First came the announcement that the movie will have a silly title change in the UK due to the old TV series of the same name, so we are now (in the UK) going to see Avengers Assemble (boooo!) but we get to see it earlier than the US (yay!). Then there was the new theatrical poster released which is a photoshop disaster… and believe me, I am a graphic artist, whoever signed off on that needs a firm talking to.

But then all our faith was restored in the movie with the release of a new trailer and if it doesn’t get your blood pumping you’re on the wrong website! So here, in all its glory, is The Avengers theatrical trailer…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
