Now, this is an Avengers promo. Granted, the film it’s hyping doesn’t even exist yet but it’s still better than the calorie-free logo reveal that leaked last week.
The clip-crafted by fan Ivan Guerrero–uses scenes from the 1940s Captain America serial and gets its Iron Man by subbing in the Commander Cody character of “Radar Men From The Moon” fame. Both serials were produced by Republic. This 180-second dose of awesome riffs on Marvel’s recent “Secret Invasion” crossover event and it’s worth watching a few times just to catch all the references to past Marvel continuity. You can get a breakdown of all the characters who cameo in the trailer here.
