‘Avengers’ TV Spot Gives a Closer Look at Loki’s Army

At first, fans expected the mysterious, seemingly alien army in The Avengers to be either the Skrulls or the Kree, two longstanding threats in the Marvel universe. One of the newest TV spots for this summer’s biggest comic book movie (okay, maybe second biggest, behind The Dark Knight Rises) shows the biggest glimpse yet of who the Marvel heroes will have to fight. It also confirms what was probably obvious when Loki declares that he’s in fact controlling the army. There’s also plenty of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) acting badass.
