"Avengers" fans worldwide awoke to a special surprise in the form of a new 30-second teaser for Earth's Mightiest Movie. Featuring a plethora of new footage, Marvel Studios' latest teaser sets its sights on a brief conversation between Loki and Tony Stark, who briefly glosses over the roster of Avengers facing off against the God of Mischief's otherworldly army.

"You threaten my world with war," Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) says as the Brazilian TV spot opens. "You might not be glad that you did." After an evil laugh by Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the clip quickly jumps to the conversation between Loki and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), discussing the roster of superheroes and what they're up against. "Let's do a head count," Stark says. "A couple of master assassins, the demigod, the super soldier and me."

"I have an army," says Loki as the trailer reveals a new look at the god of mischief's mysterious troops.

"We have a Hulk," Stark replies, ending the trailer with some smash-tastic clips of the jade giant in action.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill and Stellan SkarsgÄrd as Dr. Selvig. The film opens May 4.
