Looks awesome.  Simply awesome. 

Here's the YouTube link for anyone that doesn't have quicktime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuR3wSKeNOc

As for RDJ stealing the show, I thought I read somewhere that he was pushing for this, then backed off to have Iron Man actually share the load much more with the other characters.  I think he's great and the banter with the Hulk/Cap should be fun.  I just hope the Black Widow and Hawkeye characters don't get lost with all the attention on the bigger name heroes.

I'm underwhelmed, and I don't trust Joss Whedon to make a good movie.   :-\

I thought Serenity was great, and I liked his work with most of Buffy and Angel as well.  I also read somewhere that he was an assistant director or something on Thor.  Those credentials are enough to give me faith...

There will be an Avengers panel next Saturday at NY Comic Con.  Chris Evans will reportedly take part, as will Kevin Feige.
And Cobie Smulders!

Yeah, all three are reported to be attending.

Too bad Scarlett won't be there.

So why does Hulk need a third actor for this movie?  I assume the first 2 of those movies sucked so bad they didn't want to be in this super hero party movie?

I'm sure I'm way in the minority on a site like this, but I watched the Firefly series because a buddy insisted that I do so, and outside of Nathan Fillion being his usual funny self, I thought it was horrible.  And Kenneth Branagh directed Thor, Joss Whedon directed the cut-scene after the credits that was the Avenger's tie-in.  He had quite literally nothing to do with Thor's success.

Sorry to be the nay-sayer here, but Joss Whedon's work today just hassn't done anything for me at all.

From what I read Edward Norton wasn't getting along with someone (no idea who) and they just decided to not use him again.  He was allegedly up for reprising the roll.

I heard Norton was a pain to work with while filming his Hulk movie, and they decided not to hire him.  I don't think either previous Hulk fits well with the continuity, so I'm fine with a reboot of the character.

From IMDB:
Quote
Negotiations between Norton and Marvel eventually broke down, and the role was instead offered to Mark Ruffalo, who accepted. Norton wrote a public response to the decision on his Facebook page, stating that he will not be appearing in The Avengers, but thanked Marvel Studios for considering letting him reprise the role.

The trailer looks great!  I'm looking forward to this one.

I couldn't watch the series... the cowboy/spaceman mash-up just didn't work for me.  But I thought the Serenity movie was flat-out brilliant.  Because of that I have all the faith in the world this movie will be awesome.

I could have sworn in the original announcements for this movie, that Don Cheedle was also in the cast. Did they decide to drop War Machine from the line-up or is he in it for just a quick cameo? Anyone know?

IMDB has him listed for Iron Man 3 but not Avengers.  With as many characters as they have already, I'd be surprised to see him in anything but a cameo.
