Watch Marvel’s first-look trailer for Avengers #1

Marvel has released a trailer featuring the first look at Avengers #1, the new series by Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena debuting today as part of the publisher’s Marvel NOW! initiative.

The greatest heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team! Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call, who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism — these are the Avengers NOW!

Hickman took to the Comic Book Resources forums over the weekend to answer questions about the new series, and teased how he plans to approach such a large cast: “3 issues everyone, 3 issues smaller teams, rinse, repeat (until I don’t).”



That voice over is… terrible. I want to like this but everything I’ve seen about this book just leaves me completely cold/indifferent. His cosmic stuff worked for me in FF/F4 but it’s not working for me here at all.

Yeah, there’s really no excuse for not hiring some professional voice talent. The art is great, but having someone in the office do the v/o is just lazy and undermines the whole effort.
