New 'Avengers' Trailer Drops: Explosions, Bad Guys and Superheroes

Extended trailer offers a much more detailed look at the film

If you asked the average moviegoer to name the most anticipated movies of 2012, chances are, The Avengers would be among them. That's not surprising, seeing as superhero films are still all the rage. 2011 brought some nifty films that included Marvel's team of Avengers, including Thor and Captain America. Can a full-out Avengers movie take things even higher?

Yes. Yes, it can. And a new Avengers trailer definitely supports this idea. It just dropped this afternoon, and it's fantastic!This new Avengers trailer is way, way better than the (far shorter) version we got to see during the Super Bowl last month. It sets up the story better and includes a lot more plot detail. Oh, and way more characters. It's pretty important with a movie like The Avengers to, you know, actually show us all of the Avengers.

Now for the trailer:


Yep. Awesome. Totally apocalyptic and, at least to me, much more exciting than past Avengers trailers. One thing that really caught my attention: We finally get a great look at Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner! Oh, and then there's Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) looking hot and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the evil Loki (from Thor). And anyone care to take a guess as to what these freaky alien things are at the end? Someone over at Moviefone thinks they're Decepticons...agree?

Excellent stuff. I'm only sad that we all have to wait until May 4, 2012, for The Avengers long-awaited release!

Now that you've seen the new Avengers trailer, what do you think? Are you more excited about the movie? Less? Still neutral? Let's here it in the comments, fans!
