Warning: The above fan trailer for the Avengers movie may cause seizures due to extreme over-awesomeness. It’s not because of the editing, or the music choices, or because it introduces all of the main Avengers through bits of their own movies first, but because the rest of the trailer contains every single second of Avengers footage released so far. It’s like a full minute and 15 seconds of pure Avengers movie footage, and it is fucking glorious. Obviously, contact your doctor if your erection lasts more than four hours. /looks nervously at clock (Via Geeks of Doom)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
