"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
An animated logo presentation that’s the closest thing we’ll be getting to an Avengers teaser trailer for a good long while has cropped up online. As the 35-second clip is actually hosted on the website of animation house Imaginary Forces – who cut together the spinning logo along with some choice Samuel L. Jackson voiceover work – maybe this can’t quite be referred to as a leak, but we’re guessing it won’t be online long, so now’s your chance to get a taste.
In case you miss it, the trailer is a pretty standard animated logo reveal with Jackson declaring in his most intense Nick Fury voice:
“And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when earth’s mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat…to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand. On that day, The Avengers were born.”
The variation on the classic Marvel caption that’s led off most every Avengers comic since 1963 should come as no surprise to fans. The only surprising thing is that the brief glimpse that premiered at Comic-Con made it online at all.
