This uncovered vintage AVENGERS trailer from the Fifties defies the time-space continuum with relish!!!

Hey folks, Harry here and if you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw me tweet this trailer late last night as I was working on my DVD Column - but this is one of those things that just makes me love fandom, geeks and the world that many of us sit back and geek out about. Now this is a truly absurd editing exercise that makes no sense, but as Bruce Lee said, "Don't Think, FEEEEEEEEL!" and if you listen to the master - all will be right in this world of ours. Because this 1950's What If there was an AVENGERS movie before there was a comic.... is probably not too far off. NOW - there's a couple of challenges that this footage can provide for the healthy film geek... first - can you name all the Marvel Characters that are alleged to be shown in this nearly 3 minute trailer? Secondly - How much of this source footage can you actually name? Hell, I have the original one-sheet for the footage they used for CAPTAIN AMERICA starring the rough & tumble Dick Purcell, the original Captain America... But go on - let's see how good you folks are.

Joss - now, let's see you make a better trailer! :)

    Okay, that was awesome.

    by Chewtoy

    Loved every moment of it. As for the characters, I remember seeing: Thor, Cap, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Giant-man, Wasp, Black Widow (obviously), while unnamed were: The Watcher, Prof. X, Daredevil (maybe Cyclops?), Nick Fury, Peter Parker (in glasses with the spider diagram behind him), Maybe Reed Richards with the pipe on the 4th floor, which might make the guy in the trenchcoat and hat the Thing, Dr. Strange, The Hulk, Rick Jones as the kid on the radio?, and a skrull (Super-skrull?)

    by reharb

    Considering the Talosians and Emma Peel didn't grace television'til the 60's I have trouble calling this trailer "from the 50's". I imagine there was just a shortage of stock footage containing a really hot broad in a catsuit and a throbbing templed, androgynous alien. Still it looks better than half the garbage coming outta H-Wood nowadays anyway!

    by kevred

    It's such a stupendously obvious statement, and the comparison is even an insult to Rigg, but I still felt it had to be made.<p>Though now I'm wondering if the Avengers film, which I'm looking forward to, will be one-tenth as fun as an old Avengers episode. Let's hope so.

    by LordMaker

    I like the use of the Soundtrack from Demetrius and the Gladiators. That is a brilliant score.

  • One of the things I've always loved about the Vision's costume is that he's an android whose body was built in the 1930's, and his costume really looks like a throwback to the science fiction of that era, as if he raided Ming's closet.

    That is one of the coolest things i have ever seen. Ever. I read this site every day, check for new stories every coupla hours and have done for probably about 6 years now but have never posted despite the hours of joy i get from reading talk-backs - i love it. But my horror at the lack of complete awe towards the trailer has prompted me to open an an account and comment. This trailer is one of the coolest things i have ever ever seen and i cannot believe that a fan has put this together. I am amazed at the creativity that gone into this - this is a TRUE fanboy who made this and most of you posters on here are talking about Lost and Harry's reception review and just normal comments I CANNOT UNDERSTAND IT THIS TRAILER IS TRULY FUCKING FUCKING AMAZING CRAZY INSANE and it makes me love the world. It's like when i first found BatMan Dead-End and the Japanese x-men animated intro on youtube. Utterly incredible thanks for posting this Harry

    FAKE. This is a compilation of clips from other movies. The dude with the eye patch is Emilio Largo (no. 2) from Thunderball. Not sure where any of the other clips are from, but that one stuck out at me.

    Whedon Woulda Been Good For X-Men

    by LaserPants

    I like Whedon, but AVENGERS has very little to do with his aesthetic (other than it being a team-based movie; he's good at writing ensemble stuff). He's especially good at whiny, self-obsessed, adolescent angst and snark. None of which has any bearing on AVENGERS, but woulda been perfect for X-MEN. <br><br>I also have a strong suspicion that he's gonna flake out and totally blow this. Then they'll hire some hack (I believe Alan Smithee is available) to rush and stitch it together. In other words, think something along the lines Jonah Hex. Sad. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    by LaserPants

    Just maybe... I'm not sure what it is that tipped me off. Must be my innate detective's sense and the years I spent studying with the League of Shadows high in the mountains of Tibet. <br><br>Either that or the fact that IT'S SO FUCKING OBVIOUS that anyone who felt the need to call attention to it's fake brilliance is officially, and irretrievably R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D and should be banned just on principal.<br><br>Btw, whoever put this mash-up together deserves a blow job from Diane Rigg in her prime.

The way everything was treated to match the old film look was really well done.

    Captain America is from the Cap serials of the 40s, Iron Man is from Human Rocket or Rocket Man movies, Thor, I don't know, Black Widow is Emma Peel, Watcher is from Star Trek, I believe. That Nick Fury actor, is it from Danger Diabolik or Bond, perhaps? Hulkmay be from a Hammer Frankenstein. The rest i'm drawing a blank. Although it's Yul as Xavier.

    A lot of work went into that, and it wasn't wasted. Hats off to all involved. Roll on convincing digital actors so Diana Rigg in her prime can take the Widow role for her own!

    I think movie studios are missing out in webisodes

    by RPLocke

    In between movie series, why not produce short webisode adventures of movies like Star Trek, or James Bond, or Batman. That would be awesome.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 9:13 p.m. CST

    Awesome and affordable Locke

    by leo54304

    Would allow them to do stories and ideas perfect for short story format. Plus it keeps fans satisfied til the next movie.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 9:18 p.m. CST

    Yeah, they got all the sets and props

    by RPLocke

    If someone like Bale wouldn't do it, focus on another character in the universe like a Gotham Cop, or an ensign on the Enterprise?

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 9:38 p.m. CST

    Exactly, could use it to introduce new characters

    by leo54304

    or set up next film or as an epilogue to a film. Plus it all can be done a small budget I think.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 9:39 p.m. CST

    Was that Yul Brenner?

    by theycallmemrtibbs

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 9:42 p.m. CST

    Plus good training for any directors studio

    by leo54304

    might want to direct a bigger film. Or an established director unable to schedule time needed for a full movie but for a webisode can.

    Think so Tibbs, isnt that an incredible trailer?

    Bet Scarlett is glad this wasnt shown at comic con

    by leo54304

    If they had shown this at comic con and people saw Diana Rigg in that suit, the avengers panel would have been reeeal interesting. You know people would be asking: wouldn't it be great if you could do computer images of Diana Rigg as BW? Scarlett, do you feel you're a better Black Widow than the Diana Rigg clip everyone is talking about? If so, why? Scarlett gives her answer and you hear people coughing **bullshit**. Course before Q&A they'd announce no questions about Diana Rigg being the perfect Black Widow.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 10 p.m. CST

    Even Roman Polanski would choose Diana Rigg

    by leo54304

    over a 13 yr old girl. Sorry, but they're still buzzing about Polanski on the other thread, so I thought I'd throw in a Roman Polanski post.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 10:06 p.m. CST

    That trailer was sweet....

    by theycallmemrtibbs

    Hell of an imagination, felt like a live action issue of Tales Of Suspense. I'm still wondering which character Yul Brenner was playing. At first glance, I figured he was Professor X but his eyebrows were so arched, he might have been Namor.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 10:09 p.m. CST

    Think X because of the total baldness

    by leo54304

    Man in B&W, he looked the part didn't he? If they could have done a 60s x-men show based on the original team in B&W with decent effects that would have been awesome.

  • Aug. 10, 2010, 10:22 p.m. CST

    Bond should have died, Tracey lives

    by leo54304

    Diana Rigg as Tracey replaces Bond. Think of the possiblilities: Diana Rigg with Jill St John, Jane Seymour, Maude Adams, Britt Ekland, Barbara Bach and Lois Chiles. Don't tell me you wouldn't wanna see some of that action. Plus in Diamonds are Forever, Bond battled Bambi and Thumper, they were lesbians. To quote George Costanza: trio.

    A hundred times over by now. Why does he even keep posting here? Anyway these fanmade trailers always go on too long. How about some brevity. It's like they didn't want to make the effort to make a whole movie, just film the "fun" scenes and make us sit through all of them with no context or meaning.

    Very amusing, Harry.

    Here's to hoping that the 2012 AVENGERS flick is far better than this "trailer", as (cough) as it is.

    by Meta

    I personally think they should have used the Kanamits from the TZ episode "To Serve Man" instead of the Keeper from "The Cage", because they look exactly like Uatu - see for yourself

    King Of The Rocketmen

    by Dead_Kate_Moss

    was the best example of the cliff-hanger showing you an impossible to escape from death... that car definitely exploded with Rocketman inside - no way he could ever survive! Next episode, brand new footage inserted showing him escape just in time. No fair! Anyway me and friends used to liven up our pottery classes by making replica Rocketmen and whizzing them at the ceiling and walls so they'd get stuck while the teacher had his back to us.

  • Aug. 11, 2010, 5:45 p.m. CST

    Kinda anachronistic, though?

    by Dennis_Moore

    Since most of the clips were pre-60's. Marvel is more 60's jet age than 40's or 50's.

    In the TV show Married With Children, the episode called 'Kelly Breaks Out' Al and Jefferson are watching TV and see an ad for Avengers videos. Al orders the tape and is disappointed when it arrives because it features Linda Thorsen and not Emma Peel. He also asks the operator when ordering the tapes if they have an episode where she "kicks really, really high

    Leo54304: Diana Rigg inspires X-Men

    by rkhalloran

    The Avengers episode was "A Touch of Brimstone", "the SM group" was the Hellfire Club, and it didn't air here in the States at the time because that dominatrix outfit of hers was considered way over the line for the mid-60s by the network's BSP group. Remember this was when Barbara Eden's Jeannie costume had to hide her navel. The episode *did* inspire Chris Claremont to bring the Hellfire Club into the X-Men; Jean Grey's Black Queen is a blatant dupe, and Emma Frost's just flips the colors. Speaking as a Man of a Certain Age, I can say Diana Rigg certainly jumpstarted puberty for a whole generation of now-middle-aged males, and is another reason That Movie Not to be Discussed was so awful. The NY Times review at the time summed it up perfectly: "Sorry Uma, You're No Emma".
