Here’s Some Tantalizing Avengers News …
… from this weekend’s D23 fest out in California: Disney studio bosses previewed some footage from the Joss Wheedon-helmed superflick.
Via AceShowBiz, here’s some of what attendees were able to see (WARNING: SERIOUS FREAKING SPOILERS AHEAD):
“The first snippet presents a scene taking place in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier. Fury gives Loki, who is trapped inside a hi-tech chamber encased by glass walls, a warning. He will plummet 30,000 feet to his death if he tries to escape. When Loki says, “It’s an impressive cage, but not built for me,” Fury replies, “Built for something a lot stronger than you.”
After it is uncovered that the cage was actually built for the Hulk, Loki mocks Fury by saying, “How desperate are you, to call on such lost creatures to defend you?” In turn, Fury says, “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 it’s fun…”
… The second scene, meanwhile, gives a look at Stark in what looks like a private bar, and also involves Loki. “Let’s do a head count. Two world class assassins,” he says as the camera cuts to shots of Hawkeye and Black Widow. “A demigod,” he adds when it cuts to Thor, and says, “A living legend who actually lives up to the legend,” when a glimpse of Captain America is shown.
The Iron Man alter-ego then tells Loki, “And you, big fella, you have managed to p*** off every single one of them.” When Loki responds by saying, “I have an army”, Stark strikes back, “We have a Hulk.”
The Avengers opens May 2012.
