How does Marvel sustain hype with two weeks to go until they unleash “The Avengers“? Release a clip or movie still every day until then. It seems the comic studio is taking a page out of Fox‘s playbook for “X-Men: First Class” last year which saw nearly half the movie (okay, we’re exaggerating, but not by much) wind up online in some fashion before it hit theaters. Looks like we’re going to get every story beat of “The Avengers” as well.
The latest look at the film finds Iron Man and Thor getting down and dirty in a forest, with the high-tech hero and the Norse God going toe-to-toe, each holding their own. This is a nice detour from the dialogue-heavy clips we’ve seen in a recent days, and lets us know The Avengers aren’t pals from the get-go or at least have some kind of disagreement along the way. Everyone assembles on May 4th, watch below. [Bleeding Cool]
