The Avengers: A Silent Film


We’re due a new Avengers trailer tomorrow, this time with, like, actual plot elements; but in the meantime enjoy this shameless Oscar grab of a reinterpretation. I mean, come on guys. That “squelch” joke ain’t gonna get you anywhere. The Artist had a few other things going for it other than just being silent and in black and white.

It also glorified classic Hollywood culture, so… Well, actually you could work with that. Just tell Mr. Downey to reprise his Chaplin role, and throw a bowler on his Iron Man suit.

    This trailer was released on October 22, 2011. So kudos on the creators for predicting that ‘The Artist’ would clean up at the Oscars and going for a ‘shameless Oscar grab’! Masterfully done!

    Hi Mary Sue! Sorry about the Squelch joke! It was released before we knew The Artist existed and such. Thanks all the same!
