Teaser Debut: The Avengers

The moment we’ve all been waiting for. The epic unveiling of footage we never thought we’d live to see. The defining moment of our generation is here. The teaser trailer for Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers has arrived online! Kinda!

OK, maybe we’re overselling it. Those who stayed after the credits of Captain America: The First Avenger would have already seen the minute-and-a-half teaser trailer for Marvel’s upcoming team-up flick. We’d hoped a non-bootlegged version would land online, and it has, although it isn’t quite what we were expecting…

First of all, it begins with the final scene of Captain America (so definitely don’t watch the teaser if you don’t want the ending of that film spoiled) and then it features a montage of moments from the actual trailer, informing audiences that they can only see the full thing if they pony up the dough to see it in cinemas.

Yes, it’s a teaser trailer for a teaser trailer. But hey, it’s The Avengers, and the thought of seeing  Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and SHIELD Agents Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) together on screen is just far too exciting to resist rewatching this little cliplet over and over. Also worth noting: the villainous Loki (Tom Hiddleston) from Thor makes an appearance.

Check it out and share your thoughts below! (Again, a spoiler warning if you’ve not seen Captain America.)

You can also watch it in HD over at Yahoo.

At the top of this post, you can see some special Comic Con concept art for the film, and below we have the official poster.

The Avengers arrives in cinemas May 2012.
