Awesome comic book movie trailers for X-men, Thor and Capt America

There have been several awesome trailers released recently for Marvel comic book properties.  I feel like I would be remiss if I didn’t post them.

Along with some comments, if you please.

X-Men: First Class – I loved the first two X-Men movies by Bryan Singer in 2000 and 2003 (Wow, it took 3 years to get X2? I didn’t remember that). I was underwhelmed by X3. It wasn’t awful, it just wasn’t GREAT, either. And the more I watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the less I like it as a whole.  So, to be perfectly honest, I was not on board with this movie. This trailer changes that.  It looks BAD ASS. I know you can cut a trailer to hide a sh*tty movie (looking at you, Legion), but this looks AWESOME. I’m confused though, I thought I saw Nightcrawler in this trailer and if this movie is following the chronology of the existing movies, we shouldn’t see him until X2.  Whatever, I’m officially interested and a bit excited for this movie.

Captain America: The First Avenger – I was all in on this movie when Chris Evans was announced.  I even stayed on board when they said it was going to be a period piece during WWII (I don’t traditionally like war movies).  And this trailer alleviates all my concerns.  It looks fantastic.  I can’t wait to see more footage of Hugo Weaving as Red Skull.  At the very least, this has to be better than the 1990 Capt America movie with Matt Salinger.  Right?

Thor – I felt about this movie the way I felt about X-Men: First Class…underwhelmed.  I just didn’t think Thor translated very well to a movie.  I thought it may look silly with the costumes and Asgard.  I mean, you all did see Thor show up in the Hulk TV movie, right?  SILLY.  However, based on this trailer, I was wrong.  Chris Hemsworth totally looks the part of Thor and I now can’t wait to see this.

I have to admit, I doubted Marvel Studios for a second there.  Despite the fact that their track record since Iron Man has been better than average, I was worried they were straying from their formula.  I need not have worried.

Okay, this isn’t a Marvel trailer, but someone took the audio from the above X-Men: First Class trailer and cut a spectacular Star Wars saga trailer to go with it.  I mean, it’s fantastic.  Check it out.

  1. This is the first I’ve seen of First Class, but it’s surprisingly good- definitely comparable to the first two films. I’ve been a Thor fan from the beginning, though. The casting seems perfect, especially Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

    I think you might have the wrong trailer for old Captain America- seems like a mix of Avatar (?) and Hellboy. The Superbowl commercial was pretty wicked!

    • Yeah, I must have grabbed the wrong URL. I fixed it pretty quick, but you must have got in there before I updated the post.

      It should be fixed now.

  2. SO excited for all three movies. I remember seeing the Capt America movie on cable in the early nineties. Wht a stink bomb. How they went wrong with Ronny Cox, Darren Mcgavin and Ned Beatty is beyond me.

    With you on Wolverine. Just to many huge plot holes. The title sequence and the fight at the end, along with Liev Schreiber, were awesome. “Oooh. Shiny”

    Would it be too much to ask that, even with the staggered release dates, that one theater has an avenger fest ? Thor and Capt America, Iron man 1 and 2, the second hulk movie. 10 hrs of awesomeness!

  3. I think there is going to be too many coming out all at once and it’s going to either hurt or help the others.
