For the past several years now, Marvel Studios has been putting little teasers after the credits of their movies.

The first one was in Iron Man.



And now, four years and several Marvel movies later, The Avengers are coming together for their own movie.  Comic book fans rejoice!

This epic superhero team-up is written and directed by Joss Whedon, creator of such fan-favorite T.V. shows as Firefly, Dollhouse, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With the exception of Mark Ruffalo replacing Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, everyone in the cast is reprising his or her role from their earlier Marvel films.  With such an incredible group of actors, and Whedon at the helm, this movie is sure to draw some serious summer crowds when it releases in May of 2012.  Check out the first official trailer below!
