‘The Avengers’ is one of my favourite films of the year so far and what writer/director Joss Whedon did was really special.
The film is about to hit DVD and Blu-Ray in Australia on 29 August and there is a trailer to promote the release that features The Popcorn Junkie.
The commercial originally aired on television in Australia when the film first came out and it’s getting rolled out again for the home release.
Check it out below.
And if you blinked during the trailer here it is again.

I wanted to also take a moment to personally thank anyone who has read one of my reviews. Your support means a lot and although we might not always agree, it’s always fun geeking out over films together – the good, the bad and the Michael Bay.
Thank you so much you ridiculously good looking film lovers.
The Popcorn Junkie
‘Iron Man 3’ starts production in the next couple of weeks and director Shane Black is putting the finishing evil touches on his cast.

Writer/director/geek God Joss Whedon, has delivered financial and critical success with ‘The Avengers’.
The achievement is now etched in the Hollywood record books as ‘The Avengers’ continues to haul in the cash and keep cinema receipt printers running out of paper.
It’s amazing to see how many people have already seen the film two or three times (we’re up to three) and it has been a long time since a film has managed to inspire so many repeat viewings upon release.
It seems Whedon has a very level head and has written a thank you letter to his fans over at Whedonesque (via Collider).

Be prepared for a LOT of gushing over Marvel Studio’s ‘The Avengers’. I’m going to give it to you straight; the film is phenomenally awesome. No review for the film really matters anyway because you’d be mental to miss the biggest superhero film event since we were pooped out from the big bang. Therefore, the burning question – is it the greatest superhero movie ever made? Our yardstick for the perfect superhero film is Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ and Richard Donner’s ‘Superman’. ‘The Avengers’ gets the bronze medal behind these films but serves as one of the best blockbusters ever made and is a fantastic accomplishment of Marvel Studios and writer/director Joss Whedon.
Another day, another featurette for ‘The Avengers’ from Disney and Marvel Studios.
In the clip called ‘Tension’ we hear from director Joss Whedon and stars Robert Downey Jr. & Mark Ruffalo as they talk about the tension amongst the group of superheroes.
Some good behind the screens footage of Whedon at work in the package too.

Dammit Disney and Marvel Studios!
If you follow us on Twitter you’ll know we complain a lot about promo fatigue with ‘The Avengers’ – we just want to see it now.
Right when we vow not to watch another clip or featurette, Disney and Marvel send over a bunch of new goodies that are just plain awesome.
Two clips to share:
One clip is a featurette featuring director Joss Whedon and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson talking about assembling an extraordinary cast to play Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – The Avengers.
The second clip features Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man confronting Tom Hiddleston as Loki on the challenge he has set himself against The Avengers.
Hit the jump to check out the clips and a minor detail on whether the film will feature a post credits sequence.
We’re at a point with ‘The Avengers’ with the bombardment of promotional material that it’s time to see the damn movie, we’re sold.
Our mindset has moved to the production of ‘Iron Man 3’ the first Marvel studio’s film post ‘Avengers’ that’s set to begins shooting next month.
Very little is known about the plot but director/writer Shane Black has picked a villain and the casting process has begun.
Because of potential spoilers, hit the jump to check out who is circling the bad guy role.
