Whiz Zoom Bang! The Avengers teaser trailer kicks down the internet's door and loudly proclaims how awesome it is ... but are slow-mo jump attacks and cocky, emotionally-distant cool-banter way too overplayed?

Decide for yourself (but the answer is "yes") after watching the trailer.

Personally, I find nothing wrong with it but not a whole lot that I love, either. Captain America is very underplayed and it seems to focus a lot on Iron-Man (yes!) and Thor (No!). Also, Loki is a very dull villain to me, I'd much rather see a brand new adversary.

So what did you think?

Very good. Borders on being more exciting than the actual trailer.

When I watched the trailer I thought all the same things. Why does Thor get that joke if he's from another planet, etc.  LOVE this.

I have a problem with that Captain America line - Capt America only got powerful because he got injected, how the hell is that more admirable than a man who build his own incredible suit of flying armour? How long did Captain America spend in a gym, he didn't even need to get a one day guest pass?


Curse Joss Whedon. "This is the part where I knew you were going to do that because I wrote it and I didn't work around the cliches."

So, your problem with the Captain America line is that he's making an invalid point? Because in real life arguments people only make valid points. Think about it, not only did Cap come by his powers via magical injection as opposed to hard graft in a cave with a box of scraps, he would be even LESS impressive without the aid of Tony Stark's father. Whedon knows this. Cap is just being block-headed because his personality clashes with Tony's and he wants to be confrontational. Say what you want about Whedon's dialogue, but if you think for a second he doesn't understand the characters he's writing you're sorely mistaken.

Whedon has made two big mistakes already.
