If the recently-released "Avengers" trailer is to be believed, Joss Whedon's superhero crossover spectacle is going to be a an eye-popping special effects extravaganza featuring flying ships, lightning hammers, one big, green menace and explosions, explosions, explosions.

Which, you know, will be cool, but perhaps not as cool as this sweded version of the trailer, which features cardboard buildings, action figures, and also explosions, albeit of a much smaller variety.

For those unfamiliar, "sweding" was introduced to the wide world in Michel Gondry's "Be Kind Rewind" as the process of recreating big-budget movies with zero money and some of your friends in the parts occupied by Hollywood celebrities. It's a charming practice and sometimes works like gangbusters, as you'll see in the below video. Here's to you, chubby Captain America!
