TR Contest: Worst Way That The Avengers Could Go Horribly Wrong

?True story: I’ve seriously watched The Avengers trailer about 70 times since it premiered on Wednesday. Dear readers, I admit this to you not with pride or shame, but just sincerity. To badly paraphrase Thor for the sake of a cheap joke, it is fair to say that I have been looking forward to this flick for a verily long time.

So with May 4th swiftly approaching, fan speculation is at an all-time high. Will Whedon be able to pull this one off? Which of the film’s many characters will get the least amount of screentime? Will the story be any good? Just who the hell are those flying villains anyway? There’s tons of questions that spring to my mind about The Avengers, but the one I keep returning to is what would have to occur to make the movie an unwatchable mess?

Judging from what we’ve seen so far, this doesn’t seem especially likely. But with Rob away and me handling contest duties this week, I thought I’d turn my curiosity into a way for you to win a Topless Robot T-shirt. So tell me, what do you think is the worst way The Avengers could go horribly wrong? An uncredited rewrite from George Lucas? A scene in which we see Thor visiting Supercuts? A surprise cameo from Nicholas Hammond’s Spider-Man? You tell me. Just keep it funny as I think we’ve all experienced enough cinematic heartbreak over the years to know what can go wrong with movies like this one.

So here’s the deal, Try to keep your entries as short as humanly possible, as I will be reading each and every response before picking my winners. ONE ENTRY PER PERSON. I’ll be giving away two shirts. That’s it. You have until 12:01 am on Monday, March 5th to enter. Good luck!
