Cool Videos: "Premakes" - The Avengers (1952)
Did you know that 2012's THE AVENGERS is, in fact, a remake?!
In another dimension, that might be true. But thanks to the magic of video editing and YouTubes, amateur writer/editor/art director Ivan Guerrero has made it a reality in the here and now. He showed us his stuff back in May with a "premake" of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. But today, we get a cool and funny look at his old-timey rendition of earth's ultimate super-team. Check it!
Synopsis: Lost in the annals of time and space, comes this magnificent motion picture of epic proportions. Taking a page from such horror classics as "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman" and "House of Frankenstein," Timely Atlas Studios (the precursor to Marvel Studios), created the first superhero movie team-up. "The Avengers" featured an awesome array of characters such as Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man in a larger-than-life battle against evil aliens from the planet Skrull. Face front true believers, this one is for the funny books!

|Extra Tidbit:||THE AVENGERS was also an abysmal 1998 Uma Thurman/Ralph Fiennes adaptation of the 1960s British television show.|
