First true action clip from The Avengers proves its worth in spades

Apr. 13, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Look, I know that many of you are getting weary of all THE AVENGERS hype.  We all knew the day would come.  As big of a rabid fanboy as I am, the onslaught is starting to feel like the bombardment of the Roman Legion on the Germanic tribes in GLADIATOR.  So, if you're looking for a blackout on all things Avengers, I recommend shying away from this clip.

However, for those who want to get a confirmation on what type of action to expect from our boots-on-the-ground heroes (okay, yes, Thor does fly), then this clip will do just that.  You may have a nerdgasm in the process, so be forewarned. 

I rolled my eyes at the prospect of seeing yet another obscure-ish clip, but alas, this is the kind of clip I've been waiting to see since we've gotten our little trailer teases and images. 

This, is true badassery at work, my friends:

This moment from the recent Marvel event "Fear Itself" is something I'd like to see happen in a sequel.  What about you?

Extra Tidbit: I truly loved Captain America: The First Avenger, because they got the character right. However, I was underwhelmed by the majority of the action (or lack of it), so the prospects of seeing Cap deal some damage in The Avengers is of paramount importance...

Mjolnir at work!

It took my 3rd viewing to realize that Thor throws Mojlnir, turns to help Cap' up before about 10 seconds grabbing it upon return. What I had missed was the various sounds of the hammer hitting 5-10 Skree in the background. Now that's a weapon!

disappointing...

I'm still gonna be catching this but the sound design in this clip is unforgivably poor. One has to hope it's from an earlier cut, because that sounded absolutely terrible :-(

Meh. I'm sure in the context of the rest of the movie that will be awesome but in that short snippet it sounded like they were banging tin cans around and the action wasn't all that impressive.

Thor and Cap side by side, that's what I'm talking about!

Just went online and read a bunch of spoilers. I hate myself. Why do I always fucking do this!?!? I can't remember the last movie I didn't spoil the shit out of. No self control whatsoever! I'm sure everything I read would have been much cooler if I had watched it spoiler free. Save yourselves!

Shitty that I have to watch a 30 second commercial to watch a commercial.
