Trailers Without Pity: The Avengers

2 Mar

Is there such a thing as superhero fatigue? What? Are you insane?! Superheroes don’t get fatigued! This is why they are superheroes. Oh, you mean for the audience? Oh, well, sure that. I had that like four years ago and it’s only gotten worse.

Despite my not having seen Thor, Captain America, Iron Man 2 or anything else pretty much besides Dark Knight, we still felt qualified to discuss the Joss Whedon superhero collective film The Avengers, which brings a bunch of Marvel heroes together into one big enchilada (minus the salsa). (Pablo has seen them all and is much more versed [or " 'versed" as it were when discussing Marvel] than me.)

Our latest Trailers Without Pity video discusses whether the power of Whedon is enough to deftly balance so many franchises and decades of expectations. We’re gonna say… “maybe?”

We have not one but two more superhero summer movies we’re doing after this one. Can you guess what they are?

Enjoy the video!
