The Avengers might have failed to assemble for Comic con this year, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to leave 2011 without showing off something, somewhere. That “something” turned out to be two scenes and that “somewhere” ended up being Disney’s shindig spectacular D23.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW.
According to EW, the first scene shown to the masses involved a testy exchange between Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and an imprisoned Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on the SHIELD Heli-carrier. Loki, we are told, is being contained in a super cage meant to hold the strongest of prisoners, namely the Hulk, who happens to be watching on (in the form of Mark Ruffalo) from a monitor in another room with SHIELD agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders).
The exchange between Fury and Loki goes something like this:
Loki: “How desperate are you, to call on such lost creatures to defend you?”
Fury: “How desperate am I? You threaten my world with war. You steel a force you can’t control. You talk about peace, but you kill because its fun… ”
Loki: “It burns you to be so close. To have the tesseract. To have power. And for what? A warm light for all mankind to share. Allow me to remind you of what real power is.”
Fury: “Well, let me know if ‘Real Power’ wants a magazine or something.”
Bruce Banner: “He really grows on you doesn’t he?”
The second scene shown also features Loki, but this time talking with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in some sort of bar:
“Let’s do a head count,” Stark says, as the camera cuts to shots of Renner and Johansson as Hawkeye and Black Widow. “Two world class assassins …”
Cut to Thor: “A demigod …”
Cut to Captain America: “A living legend who actually lives up to the legend …”
Now we’re back with Loki and Stark: “And you, big fella!” Stark says. “You’ve managed to piss off every single one of them!”
“I have an army,” Loki snarls.
Stark gets right in the villainous god’s face. “We have a Hulk.”
Wonder what kind of “army” Loki has…? The kind that needs motion-captured suits, apparently.
“The Avengers” assemble May 4th, 2012 under Joss Whedon.
The film will star Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders.
