"It's an impressive cage...but not built, I think, for me," begins the villainous Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in the latest (MSN-premiered) clip from "The Avengers", indicating the transparent enclosure the superhero team has recently imprisoned him in.
On the other side of the glass stand Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the tough-as-nails S.H.I.E.L.D. director who nevertheless informs Loki, after counting down a list of his prior transgressions: "You have made me very desperate. You might not be glad that you did."
Looking on remotely at the exchange are Avengers members Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and what appears to be the rest of the superhero team, but despite their combined strength the majority of them appear more than a little uneasy listening to Loki's taunts.
Finished off with a nice Whedon-esque retort courtesy of Jackson, the brief clip has no action to speak of but boasts some nice acting by rising Brit actor Hiddleston, who reprises his role from last year's "Thor" in the upcoming blockbuster.
