The Avengers trailer is finally HERE!

Enough with the blurry set video and shoddy magazine covers: Our first real look at Joss Whedon's Avengers—starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner—has finally arrived and, with it, a mind-blowing charge of awesome.

I've seen enough trailers to know that what I'm seeing here might bear little to no relation to whatever movie comes down the pike next summer. This is the sizzle before the steak. It is Marvel and Disney's marketing departments doing what they do best. I know that.

But I don't care.

I would like this movie now, please.
