The big Marvel panel just ended at Disney's D23 conference, and while many of the cast members were on hand alongside Marvel chief Kevin Feige (who announced there's two weeks left of filming on The Avengers), they also brought with them some footage of the Avengers in action, as well as the film's villain, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Here's a pretty detailed description of that footage from the folks over at CBM:
"Loki’s being locked in a giant prison cell completely lined with windows. Loki! In a holding cell! A SHIELD cell! Nick Fury is threatening Loki! Nick Fury says that if Loki tries to escape, the cell gets dropped from the bottom of the Helicarrier…30,000 feet straight down. Nick and Loki allude to the cage being made to hold the Hulk! Fury is steppin’ right up to Loki and he looks pissed! Loki’s looking at the camera knowing that Banner’s watching, poiinting out that they built this prison cell for the Hulk. Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill! Watching them on the monitors. Captain America’s watching this all on a helicarrier monitor.
Bruce Banner on Loki: He really grows on you, doesn’t he. Loki sees the camera and knows that the Avengers are watching him. Fury says to Loki,“You talk about peace and you kill cuz it’s fun.” Loki looks even more menacing than he did in Thor…wow! We got to see Hawkeye loose [sic] an arrow. Renner also using guns. But he has a full quiver of arrows on his back.
Tony Stark is doing a headcount of the Avengers: A couple of master assassins, a demigod, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend. RDJ is sizing up the team. In his Tony Stark way. FOOTAGE OF HULK! Roaring. Iron Man and somone battling. Maybe Thor?
And the last scene of Tony Stark talking? It was to Loki! To Loki: “And you, big fella, managed to piss off every one of them.” Loki: “I have an army.” Stark: “We have a Hulk!”
Meanwhile, here's some recent footage of Thor and Captain America engaged in a battle against what we presume is Loki's army of unknown alien monsters. This scene is being shot in Cleveland, though the battle takes place in New York City by Grand Central Station.
The Avengers will assemble in movie theaters on May 4th, 2012.
