Now our ears have recovered from Madonnaâ€™s caterwauling, and the players have had time to count their broken bones, its time to reflect on the most important aspect of last nightâ€™s Super Bowlâ€¦ the new trailer for The Avengers .
Stuffed to the brim with new footage, the latest trailer shows the merry band of superheroes in full-on combat mode, as they pit their wits against Lokiâ€™s marauding army.
As Sam Jacksonâ€™s Nick Fury intones, â€œwe are hopelessly outgunnedâ€¦ [ but ] I still believe in heroes.â€ So do we, Nick. So do we. Check out the new teaser below (goosebumps guaranteed)â€¦
As weâ€™d expected, the new trailer contains a whole heap of action, as Iron Man takes to the skies, Thor wields his hammer and Hulk smashes everything that crosses his path.
Incidentally, itâ€™s the latter character who affords Robert Downey Jr his best one-liner. â€œI have an army,â€ breathes Loki, menacingly. â€œWe have a Hulk,â€ quips Tony Stark.Oh hell yes...
The Avengers assemble in UK cinemas on 27 April 2012.
