A couple new TV spots have hit for The Avengers, and while TV spots aren’t often much to look at, these two offer slightly different variations on a smirking conversation between Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in which the relative virtues of each man’s fighting force are enumerated.
In other words, these two spots give you a better look at the “I have an army” / “we have a Hulk” conversation hinted at in an earlier trailer. And, as commenter Starscream9289 points out, the members of Loki’s army look a hell of a lot like inhabitants of the world Korbin, the most famous of which is Thor supporting character Beta Ray Bill, so memorably created by Walt Simonson. Check ‘em out below.

The Avengers opens on May 4.
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012.
