If you’ve been looking for some new video footage of “The Avengers,” the clip below may very well start getting your comic book-loving heart racing. For the first time since this phase of production on the Marvel blockbuster (set to premiere in theaters on May 4, 2012) began in Cleveland, we have footage of a set of heroes duking it out with some rather mundane-costumed bad guys.
This video showcases none other than Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Chris Evans’ Captain America in the midst of some sort of downtown brawl. It’s not exactly clear who some of these people are — or what they want with our band of superstars — but the excitement is still there even without all of the special effects.
Joss Whedon (who is a master at balancing out different kinds of characters) is directing the project, which is also set to feature The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and some characters new to the film universe including Hawkeye and The Wasp.
Based on this video, what do you think of the direction Whedon is taking in production?
