Earth's Mini-est Heroes Assemble In 'Little Avengers' CommercialSean O'Connell |
As we continue to prepare for the summer blockbuster season, we’ve seen everything from time-traveling ‘Men in Black 3’ stills to a LEGO version of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns.’ Up next? Pint-sized Avengers.
Granted, it’s a commercial for Target, but it taps beautifully into the adolescent act of kids pretending to be superheroes. All it takes is an officially sanctioned toy from your local retailer! Or, you know, a trash can lid that can serve as Cap’s shield. Check the ad out below, which showcases some pretty sweet 'Avengers' costumes on those lucky kids.
Tiny Cap is my favorite, particularly when as wonders where his mom is in a deep voice.
‘The Avengers’ promotions continue to roll out as we buckle in for the film’s world premiere (in Los Angeles), sneak peeks (in 10 lucky cities) and eventual opening on May 4. As if you didn’t know, it stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo … most of whom are taller than the kids in this ad.
