Iron Man and Thor Square Off in New Clip from THE AVENGERS

     April 17, 2012


The trailer for The Avengers showed us a glimpse of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) going mano-a-demigod-o, and now a new clip gives us even more of their super-fisticuffs.  The fight looks like fun, but I’m dreading having to watch it in 3D, which is the only way it’s being shown to press in Atlanta.  As you’ll see, the scene is already pretty dark, and the 3D is going to dim the picture even further.  Oh well.

Hit the jump to check out the clip in glorious 2D, and click here for the clip that went online yesterday along with 20 new images.  The film also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark GreggThe Avengers opens May 4th.
