Any of you lucky bastards attending the New York Comic Con this year will get the opportunity to snag a seat and check out some new-never-before-seen footage from the upcoming Avengers movie.
All of us other poor schmucks will have to put up with your grainy cell phone footage until someone over at Marvel Studios Marketing manages to put some clean teasers up. Those guys don’t seem ot have a clue about viral marketing or even standard marketing tactics. Unless maybe they were the ones behind the Scarlett Johansson cell phone pictures leak. If so, my NerdBastards hat is off to ya.
Here’s the update from the New York Comic Con’s website:
MARVEL STUDIOS: Marvel’s The Avengers
Date: Saturday, October 15
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location: IGN Theater
Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor” and “Captain America: The First Avenger,” in “Marvel’s The Avengers” the world’s greatest Super Heroes must assemble to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security. This special presentation will feature never-before-seen footage and appearances by special surprise guests.
So get in there New York NerdBastards and get the rest of us some shots of the new footage. There are sure to be some big stars attending and it wouldn’t surprise this Nerdbastard if Whedon, Johansson, and the rest show up for an afternoon.
