Thor Brings the Hammer Down in Thunderous New Avengers Promo

Disney’s marketing machine is churning out teasers for Marvel’s The Avengers at such a fast pace, it’s getting difficult to keep up with them. Luckily, we caught  this new extended TV spot focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, because it’s loaded with new footage, including a shot of the young thunder god calling down lightning from atop the Chrysler Building. Plus, we get to hear him mock his bickering teammates with the line, “You people are so petty … and tiny.”

Opening May 4, director Joss Whedon’s The Avengers also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Dr. Selvig.

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures Marvel’s The Avengers — the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

    The US has to wait until May 4th to watch it, tsk tsk. Here it opens on April 27. It’s so rare when this happens, but, oddly enough, it always tends to happen with superhero stuff, like the last episodes of Batman Beyond and Superman The Animated Series, which also aired here before they did over there.

    “ooo look at me! im so special!”  (best read in a high, mocking voice)

  • Mr. M

    You know, I wish they had made Scarlet Johansson a different SHIELD agent, not the Black Widow.  On Iron Man 2, she (or the writers) kind of missed completely on one of my favorite characters.

    If I was the Hulk I would ask Thor “You think I’m tiny Muther*&$er?”

  • Magnetic Eye

    It opens in Australia on April 25th. Don’t know why but I’m not complaining.


  • Seclusion

    Yeah, I didn’t like her in Iron Man2 either. I’ve re-watched it a few times and she comes off so…bland. She’s attractive and I love staring at her, but whenever she talks she loses me.  Unfortunate.

    The thing that throws me off is he says that, but Chris Evans / Cap is basically the same size as him.
