A 60-min extended first trailer for The Avengers was recently released in Super Bowl and here is what we think of it.

The Avengers Super Bowl Spot Film Trailer Review
Besides being the home for the annual National Football League championships, the Super Bowl is also the prefect venue to market any kind of product. This is where The Avengers made its 30-minute TV Spot debut and was later extended to a full 60 minutes film trailer with the inclusion of a very kick ass trailer finale. Right from the start I will say that The Avengers trailer is freaking awesome.
We finally know what Loki's role in the Avengers film as a leader of an invading alien force. No its not the Skrulls like what I also first assumed back at Captain America. The trailer feature a quick shot of the descending alien forces that Loki might probably lead which looks like Ultron-like robots but there aren't any official confirmation for this. Guess we'll just have to wait for the official full trailer or a much more detailed press release, or we can always just go crazy with waiting and watch it when the film actually hits the theaters.
I noticed some shots of Iron Man and I think the film would feature a new suit, the one shown when he fly up to the alien ship. Then we have Chris Hemsworth's (Thor) toned down body which doesn't look as good as when he was in the Thor movie. I personally am not a big fan of Captain America's new suit though, but guess it is just a little nitpicking on the much awaited super hero film of 2012. We finally have some more action shots of Black Widow and Hawkeye which is okay. I just hope that the film would feature a little more character build up and screen time for Hawkeye and Black Widow. We already have movies movies about most of the Avengers except for the two, (three if you count Nick Fury). I know Hawkeye is not the most popular Avenger, but he is still an integral member of the super hero team. For someone who doesn't know much or read any of Hawkeye's story (comics), I guess a future film about him would be my fix. What is not there to say about The Avengers trailer. It is action packed, kick-ass moments and seemingly superb character interactions.
