The Marvel panel in Hall H just finished a little bit ago, and we saw footage from both Captain America and Thor. Captain America’s footage was still a very rough cut as they’ve only been filming for a few weeks, Thor’s footage was finished and looked good. The audience went crazy for both showings, a similar reaction to the first screening of Iron Man back in 2007. Any doubts for Thor were completely annihilated when the trailer began. They decided to show a the Thor trailer again, not giving the audience enough time to come down from the high that the first trailer delivered. Read about the big surprise (The Avengers!) after the break.
At the end of the second trailer, we were asked to stick around for a bit. The lights dimmed down and Samuel L. Jackson’s voice played, we were getting a super early teaser trailer of The Avengers! The audience went insane when the trailer stopped Samuel L. Jackson was standing there, in front of the 6, 500 screaming fans. Jackson began speaking and introduced The Avengers. Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evan’s as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow (the audience lost their minds) and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (the audience goes wild). Robert takes over the mic and introduces Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, not giving the audience time to breath. After Renner walks out Downey slams another big hit on us, Mark Ruffalo is playing Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Is Downey done yet? Not at all. After Ruffalo comes out, Downey brings out Writer/Director of The Avengers and the audience finally and completely loses it!
This is just awesome news! We had heard that Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo had joined The Avengers, but this confirmation was just awesome! Marvel, you’ve officially made Comic-Con the greatest experience a movie geek could EVER ask for!
