We've all been waiting for this and I can't wait for the major collaboration! Joss Whedon hopefully knocks this out of the park and sets up Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2!

I don't care what happens but Ridley Scott back in the saddle for what "could be/could not be" an Aliens prequel will rock! It will make us all forget the dreck that was AVP!

I know this isn't actually the "summer" but this was put together a long time ago before Hemsworth did Thor. Joss Whedon rocks because he refuses to be put in a box. Minus Doll House and Firefly his product is great!

I know this is the director's first go but the effects in the trailer are sweet. With the cast as it stands kinda hard not to be good!
