Today was a big day on Twitter; Joss Whedon, Samuel L. Jackson, Gregg Clark, and Tom Hiddleston participated in a live chat to promote The Avengers movie. If you’re interested in catching up with the chat, in which Joss Whedon tells us that not only will there be Easter eggs in the movie, but that they will be “actual dyed eggs” (I’m not kidding), head on over to @Avengers on Twitter or go Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. A transcript of selected highlights from the chat can also be found at Slash Film. For example:
Can you enjoy Avengers without seeing all the other films?
Joss Whedon: “You don’t need to see any Marvel movies to enjoy Avengers! But you need to see Steel Magnolias, like, six times.”
Oh, I don’t know Joss. I can only take watching Julia Roberts die of kidney failure so many times before my face hurts too much from laughing. That’s just me though.
The chat ended with a link to a 10 second teaser trailer from the new 30 second commercial that will be aired this Sunday, February 5, during the NFL Super Bowl.
Check out the teaser, with new, previously unseen Avengers footage, after the jump!
