Much of the cast of Steven Spielberg's new epic "War Horse" will be unrecognizable to mainstream American audiences (save for Emily Watson and David Thewlis) -- and that is by design. The director didn't want the distraction of recognizable people in his lead parts, so he instead plugged in a lot of up-and-comers, especially unknowns who had never acted before. And as The Playlist learned at the Sunday night premiere of "War Horse" at New York's Lincoln Center, based on their upcoming projects, they won't remain unknown much longer.

We have to admit, the opening moments of this trailer had us worried with the ominous BRAAAAHM sound design and initial footage looking like "Rise Of The Inception Battle For Transformers In Los Angeles" but once it settles in, the first full trailer for "The Avengers" makes it look like the film will deliver the goods.

Can you tell the marketing campaign for "The Avengers" is heating up? Just like those pics from Tarsem's Snow White movie that landed earlier today, Marvel has been handing out pics to a variety of outlets and now a few more have cropped up.

Also Reveals That Steve Rogers Will Likely Just Appear In 'Captain America' & 'Avengers' Films, No Other Marvel Movie CameosMarvel's rather revolutionary roll of the dice on their big screen movie adaptations has found them creating a giant universe of connected films, where superheroes and characters cross-pollinate the films that are part of a singular fabric. In order to make this happen, the comic and movie studio giant has become known for signing up key players with contracts for multiple films -- Samuel L. Jackson famously has nine movies he's obliged to appear in -- allowing for lots of Easter eggs and surprise cameos. But while Jackson is A consistent presence in the Marvel world, and fans buzzed when Robert Downey Jr. made a brief appearance as Tony Stark in “The Incredible Hulk,” don't expect to see Chris Evans logging time in anything but "Captain America" or "The Avengers" movies.

D23 Event Is An All Too Brief & Nearly Pointless TeaserAfter Marvel’s much-discussed no-show at last month’s Comic-Con, the hype machine has been turning fast leading up to this weekend’s Disney D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center. They’ll be pulling out all the stops, right? “Avengers” footage, revealing those two newly-dated mystery projects, surprise appearances and who knows what else.

Really, Marvel? While fans extend the comic giant enough goodwill that the company could murder baby unicorns and get away with it, you have to admit, this is pretty lame.

This weekend the thoroughly serviceable, enjoyable though not quite remarkable "Captain America: The First Avenger" will hit theaters and as usual Marvel will be promoting the next movie in the comic universe with a post-credits scene. But unlike previous films where Samuel L. Jackson or Clark Gregg show up for two seconds broadly winking at the audience, fans are in for a real treat this weekend as a teaser trailer for "The Avengers" will be unveiled and for those of you who managed a peek at the leaked footage, which features pretty much every member of the superhero team, it's a pretty nifty little spot.
