The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood — which stars Russell Crowe as the bow-wielding outlaw of Sherwood Forest — has hit the web via YouTube this evening, and man does it rock. Literally.

Pumped over a heavy soundtrack are shots of Crowe looking very Gladiator-esque in merry ole England, alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett as Maid Marion, Mark Strong as Sir Godfrey and Matthew Macfayden as the Sheriff of Nottingham. This clip reel style teaser certainly has some intensity, even though it isn’t showing us much. However, I do like the darker tone that is being hinted at with this first look. Who knows, we just might get that seriously badass Robin Hood movie we’ve always wanted.

Universal will released Robin Hood on May 14, 2010.
