We still have seven months to go before Marvel Studios and Walt Disney unleash The Avengers into theaters but it looks like fans will see their first official footage next week. Well, at least for the fans who weren't available to attend the D23 expo and can't make it to next week's New York Comic Con panel. The two studios have announced that the first trailer for their superhero team effort will arrive online on Tuesday afternoon. When it pops up online, we'll pass it along to you.
The adventure which will help kick off next summer's slate of tentpoles will star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson. Director Joss Whedon is helming from a screenplay he penned.
The Avengers flies into theaters May 4, 2012.
