Big Budget Bonanza: Marvel’s The Avengers

March 1, 2012

Marvel’s The Avengers (May 4, 2012)

“We are not a team. We are a time bomb.” Bruce Banner (Cue the Beck soundtrack)

After what feels like 70 years in the making The Avenger’s will finally be on the big screen. Joss Whedon takes the directing duties of this massive film and looks to have it all figured it.

Whedon has gone on record saying that the film’s perspective will come from Captain America’s. Originally, Downey Jr. wanted to be the central character but the plot and script couldn’t be worked out. By putting Captain America front and center it will keep the viewpoint from being too familiar. Also, I’m stoked to see the main bad guy is the incredibly dangerous Loki. The big surprise is who Loki uses to help him dominated the world. Who will he recruit? Aliens, Vikings or Viking aliens?

Sam Jackson FINALLY after years of putting a team together in the ending credits gets to unleash his team of super heroes to save the earth, pose and quip aplenty.

Here is the new trailer that hit the web yesterday. It looks expensive, thrilling and the flying alien ships look straight out of Transformers 3

Why you should see it: This is one of the most expensive films ever made that has been years in the making. Can all the celebrities work as an ensemble? Will RDJ work well with others? This film is a huge gamble that could decide super hero movies for years to come. Sounds like fun to me!
