Today In What Could Have Been: The Avengers — In 1978 [Video]

We all know that Joss Whedon‘s upcoming Avengers movie is not the first live-action appearance of the Marvel superheroes. But what if there had been already been an attempt at an Avengers movie, back when the Hulk had a TV show, and when Paul Lynde was a superstar? It may not have made it further than the small screen, but this amazingly “imagineered” version of a made-for-TV (in 1987) Avengers movie — featuring Hawkeye from M.A.S.H. as Hawkeye and KISS as the featured villains — is a glimpse of what could have been.

I will wonder forever if, had this movie actually been made, Joss Whedon’s movie would have been different from what is coming to theaters on May 4. The world may never know.
