Loki and Nick Fury Square Off in New Clip from THE AVENGERS, Plus Over 20 New Images

     April 16, 2012


Yet another clip from The Avengers has landed online.  Following the action-packed clip from last week featuring Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Chris Evans’ Captain America going to battle, this bit from the film focuses on a tense dialogue-driven scene between Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.  Watching the clip, I’m reminded that Hiddleston was easily the best thing about Thor and I’m eager to see him reprise his complex villain role in The Avengers.  Every word rolls off his tongue with such power, but Hiddleston’s performance infers a great deal of personal anguish behind Loki’s nefarious façade.  Whedon recently revealed to Steve that the Blu-ray/DVD of the film will include 30 minutes of deleted scenes, so I’m sure there’s no lack of great Hiddleston material to be found.

In addition to the clip, we’ve also got a bevy of new images from the film to share with you, so hit the jump to check out the goods.  If you’ve missed any of our bountiful coverage of the film from last week (including clips, interviews, tidbits on upcoming Marvel films, reactions to the movie itself, and more) click hereThe Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th.
