Five Things You May Have Missed (But Probably Didn't) In THE AVENGERS Trailer
There really weren't that many hidden easter eggs in this particular trailer, and if you've watched it as many times as I have, it's unlikely you missed any of 'em! Regardless, check out my take on five of the most intriguing moments.
There really aren't that many moments in the latest trailer for The Avengers which you will have missed - in fact, I find it hard to imagine you failed to spot any of the moments listed below! Even so, I still think they warrant some discussion, and the lack of anything particularly revealing was more than made up for by the breathtaking and downright epic action sequences and money shots. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on these in the usual place as well as anything of any particular interest you spotted.
We've caught a few snippets of Maria Hill here and there in the earlier trailers, but this is our first real close up Cobie Smulders playing the Brian Michael Bendis created character. While she doesn't have any dialogue, there can be no doubting the fact that the How I Met Your Mother star certainly looks the part! The fact that we still haven't seen too much of Hill in action not only means that her role remains something of a mystery to us (as do plenty of other things about the film) but the extent of her involvement in superhero ensemble is equally as unclear at this point.
Black Widow Is Fighting Hawkeye
See that arm? Yeah, that's Hawkeye alright! This particular scene possibly confirms recent rumors that Loki takes control of both Erik Selvig AND Hawkeye while escaping from the Helicarrier. Whether or not this eventually leads to him piloting the jet revealed in a past featurette (and the descriptions of that LEGO set) can only be speculated on at this point. Either way, fans worrying that Hawkeye won't get much screen time can now hopefully put their minds at ease knowing that the Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol star gets at least a few action packed scenes as the archer.
Captain America Jumps Out Of The Quinjet
There's not really much you can say about this scene - it's just a breathtaking snippet of footage which could easily be missed on a first viewing of the trailer. Clearly taking inspiration from Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's The Ultimates, what situation Captain America is actually diving into remains unknown.
Thor In Captivity
Now THIS is interesting. It would appear that Thor at some point ends up in captivity in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. A crack can quite clearly be seen on the glass (possibly from a strike by Mjolnir?!) and my guess would be that this is the same cell designed for the Hulk which Loki eventually ends up in. What exactly Thor is saying "No!" about remains to be seen, but I wouldn't mind betting that this scene may have something to do with Loki's escape. It's either that or the God of Thunder is taken into custody by the other Avengers at some point for whatever reason. Very intriguing indeed...
Fin Fang Foom?!
Ok, so you'd have to be blind not to have noticed this one (unless you foolishly decided to cut the trailer off as soon as the title card came up) but while the identity of "The Leviathan" - as it was named on a call sheet during filming in New York - remains a mystery, I believe it will be none other than Fin Fang Foom! While they probably won't mention him by name, it's unlikely that Marvel Studios would use ANOTHER giant creature in a future Iron Man film, possibly making this one of the most fan pleasing cameos ever! I honestly can't think what else it could be - though there are certainly a fair few other options - and it seems far more likely that comic book fan Whedon would base it off of an existing comic book character...unless this alien race is an entirely new creation (as were the Breakworld Aliens during his Astonishing X-Men run).
