I know, I know, the amount of Avengers coverage going on lately is getting a little ridiculous. That’ll happen when the biggest superhero movie ever made is on the cusp of release. I’ll save you the blow-by-blow and just direct you right here to catch up on all of our Avengers coverage as of late, but I highly suggest you check out Steve’s interview with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige if you’re interested in what’s up with all the sequels and other superhero movies Marvel has in development. Today a new clip from the film has gone online, and it shows Captain America and Thor in battle with Loki’s dastardly aliens. It’s short and sweet, but you get the idea.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark Gregg. The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th.
