NEW Marvel’s THE AVENGERS trailer – comic fans collectively crap their pants

The new trailer for Marvel’s THE AVENGERS is here, a bit early, and in UK form, but nevertheless this is it. While much of the plot has been kept secret, we know that THOR villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be at least one of the main baddies, and Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will be working together as one big superhero team. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments. Remember, this is the UK version of the trailer, so the title is probably the only difference between the US version.
