Marvel released a new Avengers TV spot on Friday, meaning I’m sure you’ve seen it already, but if you haven’t, it shows off our best look at Loki’s army of bad guys so far, revealing them finally to be…. fuck. I still don’t know. They’re definitely not Skrull or Kree. They don’t look anything like monsters of Norse (well, Marvel Norse) myth. They’re also definitely not Atlantean. I’m looking right at them and I still don’t know what the fuck they are. Well played, Marvel. FYI, I’m still guessing the Chitauri, because it’s the answer that makes the most sense, although it’s still very little.
Also, the new Hulk footage is so incredibly badass. I really think he’s going to be my favorite part of the movie.
Oh! While we’re on the subject of the Hulk being totally awesome, who saw Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes yesterday? Not only did Doctor Doom hand the Avengers and the Fantastic Four their asses singlehandly and simultaneously, the Hulk beat a Doombot to death with the Thing. As in, the Hulk picked up the Thing by his foot and started swinging him like a big orange club, and beat a Doombot to death with him. I came, just now, just by remembering it. Seriously, if I could trade in the live-action Avengers movie to ensure 10 more seasons of the cartoon, I would do it in a heartbeat.
