The Avengers movie opens this weekend. As I reported last summer, it was filmed, in part, in Cleveland, so I’m hoping it does well.
This trailer makes the movie look like must-viewing. Samuel L. Jackson in an eye patch? Awesome. Robert Downey, Jr. reprising Iron Man, and getting into the obligatory, caused-by-a-mutual misunderstanding fight with Thor so we can see how evenly matched their powers are? Even more awesome. Scarlett Johansson in a tight-fitting black jumpsuit, looking to take out some dangerous supernatural foe with just a pistol? Double awesome! And a giant airborne slug-like creature tearing buildings to shreds in pursuit of Iron Man? Most awesome of all.
Nothing says summer is here like a mindless action movie, and The Avengers will fit that bill nicely. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a little summer.
