But see, it's not a trailer. It's a 30 second commercial for a film. I honestly think that a lot of the disappointment people feel is because they expected it to be a theatrical trailer when it isn't and was never intended to be one. All we were ever going to get in that commercial, whether you look at the 30 or 60-second version, is an exciting and hopefully enticing glimpse of the film. This was to whet the audience's appetite, raise awareness and get people talking about the film. It succeed in those tasks.

A full theatrical trailer, in contrast, is over two minutes designed to give the audience a good idea of the story and action they can expect to see when they watch the movie. The next trailer will show us a lot more, just as the second Avengers trailer did.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
