Yes, they’ve changed the name for the benefit of UK audiences. Apparently keeping the original title The Avengers would cause much confusion throughout Great Britain, with many people so puzzled that this film wasn’t about John Steed or a lycra clad Emma Peel, that they’d be forced to put down their china tea cups.
This official trailer gives you a look at Joss Whedon’s vision of a modern day take on the super hero alliance of The Avengers, starring Robert Downey Jnr as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. The plot rattles along like so:
Pew, pew, pew, zooooom, baaabaaabooooomm, thwunk, bang, bang, bang clank, click, puh-puh-puh, gazooks, tch, tch, tch.

Want to see Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Scarlet Johansson and Sofia Vergara hump Swizz exercise balls in tight lycra? Yeah, we though you might.
Here’s a seven minute long sketch which was featured on the Jimmy Kimmell Show right after last Sunday’s Oscars entitled The Hottie Body Hump Club. It takes a swipe at all those exercise and weight loss fads which people , (especially those in tinseltown), become obsessed with, while at the same time proving that some Hollywood stars are quite self effacing. Jesus that Justin Timberlake is one lucky bastard!
