Watch: Hawkeye speaks and Gwyenth Paltrow makes a cameo in Japanese 'The Avengers' trailer
As Marvel's "The Avengers" juggernaut rolls on, a brand new trailer has surfaced in Japan that features some previously unseen footage that will likely be met with fan enthusiasm.
For the most part, we see and hear things from the previous trailers, but Japanese moviegoers get to glimpse a few things that U.S. audiences hadn't seen yet.
The two most welcome additions are a brief cameo from Tony Stark's righthand woman Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and evidence that the hitherto mute Haweye (Jeremy Renner) can speak...although "I got 'em" isn't much of a bon mot. S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulder) also pops up looking beautiful and in-charge.
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are all present, dutifully reciting lines we've already heard for the most part.
The trailer also offers a few more glimpses of the mysterious aliens attacking NYC (they arrive via some sort of blue portal and shoot blue lasers), but the glimpses are fleeting at best. We even get a nice, long shot of the nifty S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier rising from the ocean. Jack Kirby would be proud. Plus, Sam Jackson wielding a bazooka? Excelsior!
What do you think of the trailer? Grade it at the top of the story.
