  1. Stark is wearing a Black Sabbath shirt. That is fucking GENIUS!

  2. Oh dear……

    “I have an army”

    “We have a Hulk.”


  3. Juan a.k.a. The Denim One says:

    30 second mark. Skrulls?

  4. Junkle says:

    I thought they looked kinda Kree-ish

  5. Junkle says:

    Well, I dunno. That first shot looks Skrully but the shots in the streets and with Hulk look Kree… Maybe I’m crazy.

  6. Dan Mahoney says:

    So? Atlanteans, Kree, or Frost Giants? Look like Frost Giants to me.

  7. Bigtymin504 says:

    Good lord that’s amazing. Got chills on multiple occasions. Hulk is kicking major ass. And those look like Frost Giants at first glance but they also appear to be coming out of a spaceship so Kree is a possiblity. I didn’t think they looked Skrully but hey they are shape shifters…Chitauri maybe?

  8. JusWise says:

    COULD be the Frost Giants ( would make sense since they have already been introduced) but they dont seem that technological advanced to me. I still say Kree but who knows). 11 weeks to this guys!

  9. Hulk jumping in the sky swatting shit gave me so much wood.

    And I got my inspiration for my new set of Avengers prints!

  10. Bigtymin504 says:

    Atlanteans? Annihilation Wave?

  11. Robert Eddleman says:

    Somewhere else it was brought up that both Loki’s army and their invasion of Manhattan looks a lot like when Surter’s minions, the Sons of Muspelheim, did the same thing during Walt Simonson’s run on Thor. I think this makes a lot of sense.

  12. John-Michael (Batman25JM) says:

    Words cannot describe the awesomeness of the trailer.
