Did you hear that sound? That’s workplace productivity across the country coming to a screeching halt for the rest of the day. And rightfully so, as this new trailer for The Avengers exceeds expectations. Seeing as I am a writer on the Internet, I have some complaints…tiny though they may be. First, what’s the deal with that Transformers thingie at the end of the trailer? It seems kind of weird and out of place. Second and more importantly, why isn’t it May 4th yet? Those teensy issues aside, I have to say that this film has me ridiculously excited to the point that I could very easily have the rest of today’s articles consist of nothing more than the words “oh holy crap, man, that Avengers trailer looks really great.” But I must carry on, so after the jump I’ve embedded a behind-the-scenes featurette of the film that aired last night on Entertainment Tonight.
Hands up if you are going to be irritating everyone in your life by saying “you people are so petty” a la Thor for the rest of the day. Yep, me too. It’s also nice to hear that Iron Man will be antagonizing Bruce Banner with hopes of getting him to Hulk out.
