A new trailer for The Avengers has landed online.
OK, so it’s in Russian, but there’s still plenty of superhero goodness to enjoy if you don’t mind a bit of Russian dubbing.
There’s not a whole lot of new footage, though eagle-eyed Avengers obsessives will spot a few little treats littered throughout.
Basically, if you’re as obsessed with seeing The Avengers as we are, this’ll provide a little relief ahead of the four-month wait until the film’s release.
Check it out below:
And, if you’re not averse to spoilers, read on…
Toy manufacturers have a way of spoiling big superhero movies, with figurines often revealing key characters before the movie marketing does (how many times are we going to see Spider-Man ‘s Lizard in toy-form before we get a glimpse of the real thing?)
Well, according to MovieWeb , the HeroClix line of Avengers toys may have given away another of the film’s big baddies.
According to a press release, Thor and Captain America will be battling Loki and… the Red Skull.
The scarlet-visaged Nazi evaporated at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger , so depending on where he ended up, it’s quite possible he could be coming back (did he get teleported to Asgard?)
Or, is it merely a ploy by the toy company to make it a more fairly matched fight between heroes and villains? Hugo Weaving has never officially been linked to The Avengers , so it’s all speculation at the moment.
The Avengers opens on 27 April 2012.
