New TV Spot And Contest For The Avengers

Marvel’s The Avengers is only a month away. That means we can expect to see more and more trailers and featurettes appearing on television and online. The promotional blitz for the film is huge and seemingly never ending.

The trend continues today with a new TV spot, that can be seen below. It’s only 30 seconds but fear not, with a marketing budget of $100 million, I think it’s safe to say that this definitely not the last piece of promotional material that we’ll see.

Check it out below.
