Back in February, we received a new Avengers trailer that featured a bevy of new footage containing the Hulk, Loki, and a ton of action, and it was, quite frankly, pretty exciting. But then Japan went and received a trailer with even more new footage, stealing all of our thunder with new shots of the film’s otherworldy villains, the SHIELD mobile base, and the Avengers’ jet.
While the trailer seems extraordinarily light on Hulk footage (something the February trailer had in abundance) you do get more of the villains in this trailer—it appears Loki is leading some kind of alien army against Earth. And while that seems a little bland for a group of villains, remember, this film is more about its heroes rather than its villains (think the first Iron Man film).

So, what did you think? Not bad, right? While the film still looks as if it could slip into Fantastic Four cheesiness, I’m growing more and more optimistic with each new peak at the film. We’ll all find out how well the film does when it’s released on May 4th.
