'Avengers' Blu-ray clips give us another glimpse of Thanos: Watch
In case you missed it in theaters (or just feel like revisiting a few of the film's most stunning sequences), Marvel has released five clips from this summer's "The Avengers" in advance of its September 25 release on DVD/Blu-ray. Included is the much-talked-about Thanos cameo from the middle of the film's closing credits, which succeeded in proving the old adage/Heinz marketing tagline: "Good things come to those who wait."
First up is the requisite "heroes suiting up for battle" bit, which shows the super-powered team members making preparations for a serious Loki ass-kicking session. Throw in a Captain America one-liner at the end and you're good to go.
"So...this all seems horrible," quips Mark Ruffalo at the beginning of this action-packed clip, which gives a whole new meaning to the word "party." Good thing Dr. Banner is always up for one...in a manner of speaking.
Clip #3 has Captain America (Chris Evans) taking charge of a dangerous situation, laying down the team's number one priority (hint: it rhymes with "arraignment") and...oh yeah, instructing the Hulk to do what he does best. Hmm...wonder what that could be.
This clip gives just a taste of one of the film's many delirious action sequences, with a final shot that shows off Whedon's deftness for mixing breakneck visual effects wizardry with unexpected humor.
