Aside from giving a look at fresh scenes that will be featured in the yet-to-be-released trailer, the preview features some behind-the-scene footage as well as interviews with the cast members.
Before a brand new trailer of "The Avengers" is released on Wednesday, February 28, Entertainment Tonight has unveiled a preview of the anticipated promo video. The clip offers a few glimpses at new scenes that will be featured in the new trailer, including the one that sees Steve Rogers angrily crashing a punching bag.
Additionally, the preview video features some behind-the-scene footage of the highly anticipated superhero ensemble film. It shows all the main cast members gathering in one room in the Helicarrier. It also sees some interview sessions with Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson.
The trailer preview aside, Entertainment Weekly has released an interview with Downey Jr., Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth regarding their characters in the movie. Each of the actors shared different opinions about the superheroes they are playing.
Of Iron Man, Downey Jr. said, "I'm still trying to, without moving backwards, remember the character that ['Iron Man' and 'Iron Man 2' director] Jon Favreau and I created, and be true to that." He added, "In one teaser I say, 'I'm putting a team together,' and in the other one I'm like, 'What do you mean I can't join the team?' But aside from that, it kind of really tracks through."
Ruffalo, meanwhile, discussed Bruce Banner a.k.a The Hulk as stating, "[Banner] starts like he's sober in a weird way." The 44-year-old actor continued on, "He's started a whole new life when we find him, and it's cool."
As for Evans, he explained that Captain America a.k.a Steve Rogers "is kind of defined by his morals and values." He said, "In the '40s there was much more of value on those things. Things are a little more impersonal these days. It just lends itself to his sense of isolation."
On the other hand, Hemsworth said that Thor will be more mature in the film. "There's a maturity to the character because of the journey he went on, certainly," he explained. "He was a petulant sort of kid at the beginning of Thor, and by the end of it hopefully you walk away thinking that he is matured and there was a grounded quality to him that wasn't there before."
Directed by Joss Whedon, "The Avengers" will bring together the Earth Mightiest Heroes to fight the biggest foes no single hero could withstand. Walt Disney Pictures has set May 4 as the day when the highly anticipated superhero ensemble film opens wide in theaters across the U.S.
