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.

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.

Directed by Joss Whedon, who looks be making the most out of his truly tentpole-sized budget, the story completes the circle of the films in the Marvel universe thus far, with all your fave heroes -- Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, whose CGI is probably still being finished hence he's largely absent) -- tackling a greasy-haired, but badass-looking Loki (Tom Hiddleston). While our stomachs would normally churn at the rock 'n roll testosterone treatment (please see the AC/DC soundtracked "Iron Man 2") in this context, Nine Inch Nails' "We're In This Together (Left)" works very well. All in all, a pretty solid first showing from the movie.

"The Avengers" hits theaters on May 4, 2012. Watch below or in HD at Apple. [embed via ComingSoon]
