The Avengers

"You threaten my world with war. You might not be glad that you did." It's almost time for the world to be avenged, and that means our TV's are going to be chock full of action-packed spots for The Avengers, and we've got another today via Fandango. With a great opening threat from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), plus a finely delivered monologue from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), it sounds like Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is going to get a lot of shit thrown his way as he tries to destroy the planet with his army of metallic space aliens (which we also catch another glimpse of in this). Almost time to kick off the summer!

Here's the cool new TV spot for Joss Whedon's The Avengers, embedded from Fandango:

When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. The star studded cast includes Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, as well as Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgård who are reprising their respective roles from Thor. Marvel's The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon (Serenity), hits theaters everywhere May 4th, 2012. You can watch the first trailer here, the Super Bowl spot here, or the newest theatrical trailer here.

When they say they aren't skrulls, they mean it.  

Michael Lee on Mar 30, 2012


they can't be skrulls... Fox licensed them. They're more like their Ultimates equivalent which is fine because they're actually scarier.

A couple years back at comic con a picture of Thanos "Infinity Gauntlet" was shown in a case. If you freeze the shot of the "aliens" they're wearing helmets that look DAMN NEAR exact to Thanos'..

K1ng on Mar 31, 2012


I don't really see the resemblance... I think that's kind of a stretch actually. 

DaftBot on Mar 31, 2012


It may be a stretch but it does look similar to the Thanos helmet, we'll just have to wait and see. Here's the firstshowing article: https://www.firstshowing.net/2010/marvels-infinity-gauntlet-revealed-at-comic-con-now-what/

yeah and guess what... it was in thor as a throw away prop in the background of the armory.  I don't think it's going to be in the film at all. I could be wrong, but I don't see them introducing Thanos as a character to over shadow Loki who is in all the trailers and commercials, toy ads. Besides we've seen all the toys and marketing for the film and there hasn't been a hint of Thanos anywhere.  More than anything they look like Korbanites which is what Beta Ray Bill is, the only other creature in the universe that could use Thor's hammer and could potentially be a character in Thor 2, connecting all the film. That's the answer that makes the most sense to me, looks most likely. The only other hint is that when talking about toys for the Avengers the team from Lego brought up ORD which is an alien created by Joss Whedon during his run on Astonishing X-Men. Ord was an alien from Breakworld. Could be... maybe not... who knows. But I really don't think these are the minions of Thanos. Thanos would pimp slap Loki. It'd be bad story telling.

i don't know what skrulls are but Clark Gregg *coulson* used his twitter to reply to Josh Wilding by saying 'if anyone should be a skrull it would be Coulson'

Who the hell are those secret villains?

only he can talk down to a demi-god like he was trash and get away with it....

Jericho on Mar 31, 2012


rofl, the ad for this trailer WAS this trailer.

Sfilms on Mar 30, 2012


Hey I'm not complaining... I just get to watch it twice...

I look forward more to these trailers and snigbits just to see more Hulk action. For a superhero not getting a sequel, he sure draws more of a crowd then the rest. 

JBrotsis on Mar 30, 2012


Snary Starky... love it. I am super pumped for this.

Xerxexx on Mar 31, 2012

I can only say this: better than porn

jiji on Mar 30, 2012

Voice of Reason on Mar 30, 2012

jiji on Mar 30, 2012

stfugtfo on Apr 1, 2012


why would anyone want to listen to your bore tania,get a life beeatch

bassmonsta on Mar 30, 2012


I am glad that this idea actually came together. But Thor and Loki still are so freaking LAME its hard to watch.

Fantasy3383 on Mar 30, 2012


oh man, this is going to be great

dim2thesum on Mar 30, 2012


They're probably Breakworlders...Whedon introduced them while he was working on the Astonishing X-Men TV series...could mean a huge cameo

Loki pissing someone off? i'm shocked!

Jimmy Love on Mar 30, 2012


"We have a Hulk." - Favorite line so far. 5/4 can't get here soon enough.

McWetty on Mar 30, 2012


He's not, he's a full fledged god. I have a feeling this movie is really going to low ball Thor...

Chimp Dick on Mar 30, 2012


They haven't revealed who his mother is in the films yet so even Thor might be under the impression he's a Demi God and they're making room for him to discover more about himself in his sequel.

DaftBot on Mar 31, 2012


Tonight's performance of Loki will be played by Jar Jar Binks.  "What-ta you's say Tony Snarky? Meesa gonna diiieeee? Oh no's Tony! You'sa gonna poo poo's!"

Quanah on Mar 30, 2012


And brought to you by the letter "A".

DarthVerous on Mar 30, 2012


uhggg Loki makes me puke. 🙁 Thor too.

Avengersmyfriend on Mar 31, 2012


Loki trying to have a little chitchat  time with Tony but instead Loki got verbally assaulted by Tony Stark 

Hansolo on Mar 31, 2012


But most of all, we have THE IRON MAN!  😀

Deepak T on Mar 31, 2012


May the Forth be with you. It is an interesting coincidence that The Avengers debuts on Star Wars day ... or maybe it was intentional.
