D23 shows off a bit more of The Avengers


While you might think a Disney convention is only full of animated princess and cartoon mice, that’s kind of a narrow minded view of the company. They really do do everything and so D23 has a little bit of everything and the most exciting part of that everything? New footage from The Avengers.

/Film has a full rundown of what was shown off at the convention (where two new Pixar films were already announced). The brief shots didn’t really give much away, but did feature a lot of Loki egging on Nick Fury and Tony Stark According to /Film the footage also confirmed that the movie was going to kick ass I’m not sure we really needed much to confirm that detail, but it’s good to know.

Check out their full description below.

It begins with Loki being locked in a large, circular glass room that’s very technologically advanced. Nick Fury walks in, presses some buttons on a touch screen and warns him: “In case it’s unclear, if you try to escape, you even scratch on the glass, it’s 30,000 feet straight down.” We see the floor open up revealing we’re on the Helicarrier. Loki says it’s an impressive cage, but not for him, and challenges Fury by asking how desperate is he to do what he has done. Fury retorts by saying that Loki has brought his world to the brink of war and “you kill because it’s fun, so you made me very desperate.” Loki taunts him by saying Fury was so close to true power. He had the tesseract (aka the Cosmic Cube) and but now he, Loki, will remind you what real power is. Fury responds by saying, “Tell me if real power wants a magazine.”

Meanwhile, as Loki is delivering that speech, we see The Avengers all sitting around a table with Thor standing in the middle (this is the footage from the brief teaser trailer) watching Loki on a monitor. It ends with Bruce Banner, wearing purple, (Mark Ruffalo) saying “He really grows on you doesn’t he?”

Cut to Nick Fury explaining that S.H.I.E.L.D. had an idea to bring together a group of extraordinary people who could fight the battles we never could. As he’s saying this, we cut around what the Helicarrier, seeing various S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and such.

Next we see Tony Stark behind a bar and he says, “Let’s do a head count.” This is all intercut with footage. “We’ve got two deadly assassins,” Black Widow and Hawkeye on a bridge next to a crashed car. “A demi god,” Thor looks up menacingly, then we see him jumping in slow motion swinging his hammer at Captain America. “A legend that actually lives up to the legend,” this is Captain America, who we see looking at his new suit and jumping away from an explosions. And Stark ends with “and somehow you managed to piss them all off.” The reveal is he’s talking to Loki. Loki says, “I have an army.” Stark says “We have a Hulk.” We then see a transforming leg and the new Hulk screaming into camera. Title card.
