A question for you: Have you ever wondered what it'd be like to be an Avenger?

Not in an honorary sort of way, or through joining a club advertised in the back of a 1970s comic-book, mind you, but to actually be a member of the team. To stand alongside them, to fight evil with them, to risk your neck simply because it's the right thing to do. To actually be an Avenger...

Now, sadly, unless you're Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Cumberbatch or a handful of other lucky actors, the full effect of that feeling isn't likely to ever be available to any of us - but in the meantime, Samsung and Marvel Studios are doing their darnedest to replicate it as best they can.

Cue a giant green rage-monster attacking...

Y'see, in celebration of the recent release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the two companies have created an interactive 360° Avenger-being-simulating experience...on Youtube.

Or, in other words (so long as you have an Android Phone, or are reading this on Google Chrome), you can now dive head-first into a gorgeously realized 360° rendering of the battle for Avengers Tower in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's been doing the rounds for a little while now, but it definitely deserves a closer look.

Specifically, right here:

That, though - despite being AWESOME - isn't all.

See, Samsung is also promoting its new Galaxy S6, and the Gear VR Headset...by pointing out just how much like an Avenger it'll make you feel.

So much so, in fact, that you will literally* be trained by Maria Hill...

*Note, not literally. She doesn't exist.

...Alongside the all-star likes of Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy...

Pro-surfer John John Florence...

And, of course (greatest soccer player in the world) Leo Messi...

...Who, as Iron Man, plays keepy-uppy...with a bowling ball...

You can check out the team being assembled right here...

...Before they head into the distinctly awesome (and sadly, not real-gameplay) virtual world right here...

All of which is awesome...but presumably even more so if you're planning on buying an S6 and a VR Headset to go with it...

What do you think, though?
