Marvel has released a new TV spot for The Avengers. I try not to get excited over 30 seconds of carefully selected, strategically edited advertising footage, but I’ll admit I geeked out over this spot. I particularly love the moment where Captain America issues a very specific instruction to the Hulk.
Hit the jump to check out the TV spot, click here for Steve’s interview with director Joss Whedon, click here for a new image of The Hulk, and click here for yesterday’s 60-second TV spot. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson. The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th.
