The second clip from The Avengers has gone online. The clip features Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) arguing over the Tesseract (the glowing cube from Captain America: The First Avenger) and the “Phase-2 Prototypes”, whatever those are. It’s not the action-packed, quippy stuff of the previously released clip, but it’s still nice to see the fine, non-superhero folks at S.H.I.E.L.D. getting down to brass, Phase-2 Prototype tacks.
