Today, Marvel brought a major teaser for "The Avengers" live Twitter event. After a fan Q&A with director Joss Whedon and cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg, Marvel revealed ten seconds of the new "Avengers" trailer airing during Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday, February 5.

The 10-second clip had no dialogue but was full of action, beginning with citizens running away from an unseen threat, while a Dr. Pepper truck blew up in the middle of the street. After cutting to shots of Tony Stark and Thor, lightning struck the Chrysler Building in New York City. With a quick cut to the Black Widow and Thor helping a battle-weary Captain America to his feet, the trailer showcased the threat: three flying ships blasting a crowded New York City street. In another quick cut, Iron Man is pursued by four of the ships in formation. The clip ended with a close up shot of a roaring Hulk.

This is the first look fans have seen of the global threat The Avengers have come together to fight, presumably caused by Loki. With rampant rumors circulating the web of an alien force invading the Earth during the film, these ships with their skeletal pilots may play more of a role in the Super Bowl Sunday TV spot.
