Japanese "Avengers"

Japanese trailer has, unexpectedly, LOTS of new footage; though no huge reveals that I can see:

Yeah, no huge reveals...except for the FUCKING HELICARRIER!!! Holy shit, it's gorgeous.

I'm surprised enough to see Iron Man's supporting cast will make an appearance. Hoping Heimdall and the Warriors 3 make a small appearance too.

HELICARRIER!!!!

Very smart, showing the Helicarrier. The Japanese should go nuts for this movie. Giant mech serpent, guy in robot suit & giant flying battlecruiser. Might have called it Yamato for s&g's

David said...

Hey! Isn't that Cobbie Smulders? I didn't expect someone from "How I Met Your Mother" on this! lol

BTW, the Japanese subtitles REALLY cut information off.

I was once in a localization conference in which a Japanese translator explained that, on average, 70% of the information is lost in English to Japanese subtitles due to space and speed of read constraints.

Now that I see this I realise she wasn't exaggerating.

Actually, it would be a surprise if the movie turns out to be a big hit in Japan. So far, none of the Marvel movies leading up to the Avengers has done anything more than medicore box office relative to Japan.

@Phil

Yeah, but did those movies have GIANT SERPENT MECH?!*$^&@!

i think not.

Um, hello, we had the reveal that Hawkeye actually has dialogue.

@Safaria

That's more than i knew about him from any of the other trailers. I call this a win!

Mariner said...

Finally, a Hellicarrier done *right*.

@David, nope, it's Cobie Smulders, it was pretty well known she was going to be in this as Scarlett Johanssen's agent colleague. I think it's awesome!
