Since moving to Germany, I’ve gotten used to watching movies overdubbed in Deutsch (last night was Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik). Still, there’s no amount of dubbing that could prepare me for hearing Samuel L. Jackson say “We get ready,” in a deep, Russian baritone. Мы получаем готовый!
The Russian trailer for The Avengers is essentially the same one from our shores, but they shine a bigger spotlight on Black Widow (which means extended footage of Scarlett Johansson looking like an ice-veined killer in black latex while explosions happen all over the place.
It’s no surprise they’d treat native daughter, and former KGB operative, Natasha Romanoff with such respect. Now check it out for yourself:
Explode-y! And why do I want to watch the entire movie in Russian now? Or at least make sure that every role played by Jackson is dubbed over by that same Russian guy.
Unless that’s actually Samuel L. Jackson speaking Russian – a fact that 1) would not surprise me and 2) would make him just that much cooler.
What say you? Are you hyped for The Avengers or are you tired of superheroes?
